Foods that are designed for our bodies are those in their most natural state. Processing and refining generally removes the good food value that our bodies require to maintain good health. Avoid foods that have been bleached or refined to an unnatural colour, such as white flour or white sugar.
Foods eaten in the following combinations throughout the day will help your body maintain regular blood sugar levels that fall within a predetermined range.
