I feel like one of the most challenging things about trying to eat a healthy diet is all of the conflicting information out there. Some research shows that butter and eggs cause heart disease while others claim that the benefits might outweigh the risks. Or that the fiber in whole grains is the key to weight loss and hormone regulation while others portray grains as the modern day devil. At the end of the day it’s all so confusing that it can be hard to decide what’s truly best for our health.
Of all the research available to us, one thing I’ve never seen controversy over is the benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables. There is no denying that plants are the most nutrient-dense and sustainable foods we can feed ourselves.
