Worst Foods, The 9 Worst Foods to Eat and Healthy Swaps

Dr Jockers Comments:

Grass-fed beef is loaded with clean protein and healthy fats such as omega 3’s and CLA which improve hormone function and help to burn fat and build muscle.  The grass-fed butter provides these same fats and lots of vitamin A, D, E & K2 as well as the gut healing fatty acid butyrate.

Coconut aminos are the best replacement for typical soy sauce and provide a great Asian flavor without the soy.   Herbamare is a terrific all-purpose seasoning that has antioxidant rich Italian herbs, sea salt and kelp.  This is rich in trace minerals, tastes good and improves energy levels.
