10 EAT WELL/FEEL GOOD TIPS BY ANGÈLE FERREUX-MAEGHT:
1) AVOID LACTOSE
Too much fat, too rich in growth hormones (endocrine disruptors). Cow's milk is made for calves!
2) PRIORITIZE PLANT-BASED FOODS
Give your digestive process a break and cleanse from the inside.
Increase vital energy through to daily pranayama.
4) GET A PROBIOTICS TREATMENT
Restore intestinal flora. Even more effective when combined with spirulina.
5) AVOID STIMULANTS (COFEE, ALCOHOL, WHITE SUGAR...)
Full of toxins and they raise blood sugar levels.
6) AVOID INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
Industrial and refined products are dead. They have no nutritional value and make you tired and cause weight gain.
7) DRINK WATER
Hydrate a lot. Starting first thing in the morning with a glass of warm water and a few drops lemon.
8) EAT GREEN
Think green, eat green. When foods are green, this indicates that they have gone through the process of photosynthesis a sign that they are rich in chlorophyll which helps oxygen get to your cells. Breathing cells regenerate faster!
9) FAVOR FOOD THAT BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Turmeric, thyme, rosemary, bee pollen, propolis… Use to make herbal teas or add them to soups. They will keep you from getting sick. I promise!
It is very important to include consciousness in your actions, and particularly in the food you eat. Take your time, and chew well. Digestion will be easier and the feeling of satiety will come faster.
