|"If it's white, it ain't right!"|
- The first is summarized in a phrase that may sound a little edgy: “If it’s white, it ain’t right.” That’s not a racial statement!! The foods and ingredients I do my best to avoid are white sugar, white rice, white flour, and white potatoes. In essence I’m eating a modified low-carb diet, although I enjoy complex carbs like brown rice, sweet potatoes, etc.
- If I can’t follow rule #1, make the healthiest choice available. For example, if we stop to eat at Sonic, I chose the grilled chicken sandwich and throw away the top half of the bun. Or if I’m eating in someone’s home and the food doesn’t fit my first rule, I just eat smaller portions. This way, it’s not about dietary legalism, but consistently making the best possible choice.
