The Food Principles

Nutritional advice can be confusing, and there are many conflicting messages. Use these 5 questions as your guide to healthy food. The healthiest foods meet all 5 criteria.
Does it come from a plant or an animal?
Would your grandparents and distant ancestors have thrived on it?
Is it a whole food (nut, egg, tomato) or a minimally processed food (cheese, yogurt, butter)?
Would you feed it to your child or infant to give them the healthiest start in life?
Is it organic, free of toxins, preservatives, pesticides and unknown ingredients?
