As a very wise person said: “The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” We have been hooked on an anti-inflammatory eating for quite a few years now as it makes us both look good and feel good on the inside. This is our guide to what to focus on in terms of diet when preventing disease and ensuring a long and healthy life.
We love food and eat lots of it, but it has to be quality food! We tend not to place ourselves in a specific category when it comes to diet. The way we eat includes bits and pieces of many different diets and lifestyles: paleo, low carb – high fat, vegan, intermittent fasting… Instead we prefer calling ourselves qualitarians. In this post we’ll explain what that means to us.
I want you to eat healthy and live a long and happy life and what is better than knowing that you will have both your health and money in your account when retirement comes?!!! Just be smart about where you do your grocery shopping and pocket the difference. The difference I see per month is 180 USD and if that instead were to be invested every month for the next 30 years and the average return is 10% per annum, we are talking about a potential 355,000 USD to your retirement fund!
You might have noticed that we try to avoid gluten in our lifestyle and would not have that cinnamon bun, sandwich or pasta lunch. But why is that? What’s the harm in gluten really? Well, actually the real problem in this food equation is the wheat and what we have done to it in recent years. Have you ever thought of wheat as a genetically modified organism? Guess what, it is and this is the reason why so many people get gut issues and inflammation from it.
Inflammation is something way too common in our bodies these days and fighting it through an anti-inflammatory lifestyle is what we are aiming for every day when it comes to our health. Once you understand how to, it is easy to every day make choices that boost your health rather than feed inflammation. Here is how and why we aim for this every day.
