Produce that is in season locally is cheaper, tastes better and has more nutrients. Fruits and vegetables start to lose nutrients immediately after they are harvested, so the best produce is that which is the freshest. Produce that has been transported over long distances overseas or cross-country can not compete with locally grown produce for freshness, taste and nutritional value. (http://seasonalfoodguide.com)
For those of you who have “liked” #365 Days of Purity since day one, did you know it has actually been 365 days? Well done to those of you who have continued to improve your health by eating a bit cleaner, whether with your entire diet or with some parts of it – you have changed the outlook for your health in the future and that is an amazing achievement. I’d love to know how it has made some of you feel: Post below and let me know of any changes you have felt, and if your happier with this way of life compared to what you were before! I’ll share my story to get you kick started!
Heres to another 365 days of happiness, health and passion for food and fitness.
A year ago I visited a dietitian because I could not bare another day of living with IBS. I started clean eating under her guidance and haven’t looked back a day since. I was having complications with my stomach every 2-3 days, and that has been minimised to once or twice every 2 months. For anyone else with IBS – you can understand, that this is an amazing improvement. In regards to eating cleaner and healthier, I feel much better, with more energy and deeper sleeping, I crave foods like vegetables instead of sweets and have discovered some beautiful and delicious food along the way. I hope your health and wellbeing has improved also. Let me know!! Happy anniversary guys! xx
