5 Eating Habits To Swear By

1. Morning Lemon
First thing upon waking, before eating or drinking anything else, drink a glass of room temperature water with the juice of one lemon. You can also add some ginger or cayenne pepper for extra health and energy. Lemon balances maintain the pH levels in the body, aids the digestive track, pumps up the immune system and helps cleanse the liver. Adding ginger is great because it is a potent anti-inflammatory root, while cayenne is a detoxifier and also acts as a stimulator of the circulatory system.

2. Eat Fats!
The good fat, of course. There are many health benefits, as well as beauty benefits, associated with eating foods rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat. Stock up on avocados, olive oil, nut butters and salmon!

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.
Our bodies constantly need to be rehydrated. Drink a gallon of water per day if you can!
Brewed tea, coconut water, maple water and watermelon water are great to replenish or detox but should not be in leau of drinking water.

4. Avoid refined sugar
Just don't do it. Processed sugar is horrible for your body, your organs, heart, liver, immune system, skin, you name it- and will cause of kinds of health problems and diseases, including cancer. Avoid consuming processed sugar at all costs, and when it comes to cooking and baking, use maple syrup, dates and raw honey to sweeten your food instead.

5. Eat every color of the rainbow
Phytonutrients are natural chemical compounds found in all plants. Phytonutrients give plants and vegetables their different colors and each color is packed with different vitamins and nutrients. A colorful diet of a variety of fruits and vegetables is a definitive way to ensure your body is getting a wide range of nutrients.
