Excerpts from Roland's Happy Household Healthy Living Guide

Less
Less big meals and large servings. Less overeating. Less eating when you are not really hungry. By eating too much, you gain weight and put extra stress on your heart and organs. Remember – your body needs to detoxify.  Small meals and less food permit your body to get rid of bad things and detoxify. 

More
 
More conscious eating.  More small meals. Go for quality, not quantity. It is better to eat a small amount of organic fruit and vegetables with nutrients than a large amount of produce from depleted soil. Remember: your body needs to detoxify. Eat less food, so your body has time to detoxify. Eat food without pesticides and chemicals


More raw fruits and vegetables, and less cooked. More raw fruit, vegetables, and nuts gives your body the enzymes it needs. A good  rule of thumb is 50 percent raw and 50 percent cooked.


Less


Less pesticides. Most store bought fruit and vegetables have pesticides on them. If you buy produce that are not organic, then buy fruit and vegetables with peels (like oranges, avocados, squash, grapefruit and bananas). Wash all your fruit and vegetables, and peel as many as you can. Processed foods are usually made with food with pesticides in them. Update: Read EWG's 2012 Guide to fruit and vegetables with most and least pesticide residues



Serve and eat less cooked food. High cooking heat damages enzymes and other vital nutrients. Enzymes are very important. Your body needs enzymes. Raw fruit and vegetables contain living water.



Less artificial sweeteners. Substances like Aspartame (Equal and NutraSweet) and sucralose (Splenda) are chemicals or altered, unnatural substances.  These chemicals and engineered foods are not natural, but are put in most diet and low cal items, such as diet soda.


Less genetically engineered food. Also called genetically modified organisms or GMO, it is dreamt up by big corporations and not something I want to serve to my family. Most white and yellow corn today is corporate grown and genetically modified, and that includes the taco shells at the fast food outlet and big name corn chips.   


 More

Eat natural produce. Check the PLU barcode. Genetically engineered produce has a five digit number that begins with 8. Use this verse:  “If it begins with 8, I prefer to wait. If it starts with a 4 or 5, give me a high five. If it begins with organic 9 it’s really fine.” 



Use stainless steel cookware, enamel clad, and clay pots. Throw your Teflon type non stick cookware away. Looking for a substitute? Enamel covered pans and skillets are easy to clean and attractive too.



Sweeten with raw honey, brown sugar, real unaltered Stevia, or fruit juice. Try fruit juice as a sweetener or Grade B maple syrup. Eat raw honey, since processed honey is heated which damages the nutrients and enzymes. Use fresh squeezed fruit juice – store bought juice has been pasteurized (heated). 



More whole wheat flour and brown rice. More food from money saving bins. More olive oil and coconut oil. More reading the labels (look for the short list). More glass, stainless steel, and BPA free containers.
