Memorable Moments:

 ”We need to read every single label, and it can be a bit tedious, but eventually, you’re going to get the hang of it.”

”Now more than ever, it is so important to read labels because there are so many chemicals, additives, and quite frankly just nasty ingredients that are being put into our foods.”

”The key is, you want that list to be as clean as possible. A good rule of thumb here is, if you don’t know what it is, we probably shouldn’t be eating it.”

”The end goal here is to know what each and every ingredient is, for you to be able to pronounce it, and that list shouldn’t be very long.”

”The gold standard is to look for pasture-raised eggs with grade AA rating with the organic label.”

”When you’re looking at beef, you want organic, grass fed beef.”

”For chicken, we’re going to look for pasture-raised organic chicken.”

”For seafood, wild caught is best.”

”The only ingredient in your proteins should be the protein itself.”
