r Mark Hyman aunthor of Ultra Metabolism says " We know that foods with a high glycemic index make people store belly fat, trigger hidden fires of inflammation in the body, and give you a fatty liver leading the whole cascade of obesity, pre-diabetes and diabetes. Not only does wheat contain super starch and super gluten – making it super fattening and super inflammatory, but it also contains a super drug that makes you crazy, hungry and addicted.
For a quick and super-healthy meal, microwave one bag of frozen mixed veggies, then add one can of beans (any type, drained and rinsed), one cup of cooked brown rice or quinoa, and one can of tomatoes, + spices. A healthy and filling meal for two people, or one person with leftovers for lunch!
Shrimp is protein, low-fat, low-calorie, tastes great, cooks super-fast, and if you buy it and cook it at home, you can have a great meal for a fraction of what the same meal costs at a restaurant (one pound of cleaned, shell-on 31/40 count shrimp cost about $6.49 at my supermarket today).
