This will get you ½ way there, and then I have added a few items in your shopping cart that might get you pumped to keep on going with your new food lifestyle choices. The key is to learn as much as you can about good healthy food choices. It’s really not about limiting any one group, but to limit your consumption of any bad ingredient(s) or food categories.

Quick guide to Whole Foods  5-Step Animal Welfare Standards – Whole Foods Market

Step 1 No crates, no cages – Animals live their lives with space to move around and stretch their legs.

Step 2 Enriched environment – Animals are provided with enrichments that encourage behavior that’s natural to them — like a bale of straw for chickens to peck at, a bowling ball for pigs to shove around, or a sturdy object for cattle to rub against.

Step 3 Enhanced outdoor access – Pigs, chickens and turkeys might live in buildings but they all — yes, each and every one of them — have access to outdoor areas.

Step 4 Pasture centered – When living outdoors, chickens and turkeys get to forage, pigs get to wallow and cattle get to roam.

Step 5 Animal centered; all physical alterations prohibited – At Step 5 the well-being of the animals is the primary focus; efficiency and economy are secondary.

Step 5+ Animal centered; entire life on same farm – Animals raised to Step 5+ standards must be born and live their entire lives on one farm.

Want to read a bit about No Flour Food Choices?

I have personally almost eliminated flour from my food lifestyle after reading these three books which reference the concept FLOUR and how it affects our body. Flour is listed in a lot of our food choices, in three different ways; as a product, an ingredient and a process. You might want to limit your intake of any contents that has the word flour in it, I say this because of limited flour in my food lifestyle my side effect like cravings, overeating, acid reflux, consumption has gone away. For some, it has helped with the allergic reactions and but mostly feeling full without having to eat the whole box. This is why I often reference the topic of NO FLOUR. I only wish I had these 3 books in a digital format to look up the key words.  You can find another article found here.
