Adapted from Kathryne's new cookbook, Love Real Food
Real foods have been around for ages, and nutrition is a new, complex science. We're learning more about the benefits of whole foods every day, and I suspect that we'll someday look back at nutrition labels as primitive indicators of their contents. Regardless, research is showing that food really can be the best preventive medicine, and the beauty in following a whole foods approach is that you don't need to keep up with the latest research to know that you're eating well.
Here are my basic suggested guidelines for following a whole foods–focused diet, which are rooted in science and backed up by my personal experiences, which you can read more about in my cookbook, Love Real Food.
