5 Simple Ways to Eat Healthy Without Supplements

One of the biggest challenges many of us face with healthy eating is that we don’t even know where to start.

I remember when I first made the transition to a minimally processed diet (healthy diet) I was overwhelmed by the amount of information out there.

Which means that foods that tend to be bitter or sour generally deter us from eating them based on the potential of accidentally ingesting a toxic substance. Whereas, foods that tend to be sweet and salty encourage us to eat them based on our need for carbohydrates, amino acids, and sodium.

You know, the things we require for survival.

However, when these sweet and salty foods tend to be highly-processed, they don’t maintain their nutritional value. Which means,...
