Are Fish a Health Food?

I’ve discussed this topic recently in my article Fish Oil, Health & Immune Function, but the information and research in this video was too compelling not to share. As always, I want you to make up your own mind based on the evidence.

I’m continually sharing with you in other articles and the recipes I post about focusing on a diet that is primarily based on whole, plant based foods. The main reason for this is because these are the foods that are going to nourish and repair your cells in the optimal manner.

How Often Should You Eat?

There are many different opinions about what eating schedule works best. Should you eat something small? Maybe your success lies in intermittent fasting. Three square meals a day is all you need.
