There’s an excellent article HERE to “spring” clean your pantry and ‘detox’ your eating!

It includes good info such as…..
· For some of us, boxed cereal can add too many “empty, refined” carbs to the diet – something that fattens me up quickly! Consider Mark’s strategy instead – a bowl of LOADED oatmeal every morning, filled with diced apples, walnuts, coconut flakes, dried raisins or cranberries, etc.! Or try Wheat Montana's 7 Grain Cereal that we carry in our shop(*But save the boxed cereal as a “preparedness” tool for when the power goes out and you need to crunch on something to tide you over! It's wonderful for that use!)
· Also, a dentist once told me that you must have a certain percentage of fat in your dairy for you to absorb and assimilate the Vitamin D/calcium! I often opt for 2% instead. (*As we ladies grow older, gallbladders aren’t too thrilled with “whole” milk dairy evidently so I use 2% and reserve the “whole” milk for growing kids!)
· Couscous is just tiny WHITE FLOUR pasta! Consider MILLET instead! When cooked with adequate water, like rice, it becomes tender and resembles couscous but has the added benefit of being WHOLE GRAIN! That means it should be digested more slowly!
