Last week I posted Part Four of this alternative shopping list with a brief summary of minerals Calcium to Manganese and the foods that provide the best source of these particular nutrients.
At the end of the the posts, I will collate the foods into nutritional groups so that you can print off and refer to when doing your weekly shop.
I believe in eating, and eating all food groups, just moderating the amount that you eat based on your requirements. Your body knows how to process fresh food, raw and cooked from scratch. It is not designed to extract nutrients from manufactured foods which includes the majority that come in a packet, jar or can.
With that in mind here is part five of a shopping list that your body might write if it was capable. It does try to tell you that it is missing elements that it needs which is when you are sick.
Part Five – Amino Acids and Liver Health
Amino acids are the building blocks that make up proteins, which of course is what we are made of. Vitamins and minerals can’t perform their specific functions effectively if the necessary amino acids are not present. Amino acids are either classified as essential or non-essential. The non-essential ones can be manufactured in our bodies but the essential amino acids have to be obtained from food.
