Ingredients.

*The greatest health benefits are gained by choosing Organic Foods. 

All Ingredients for recipes should preferably be Organic and from Grass Fed animals and Nitrate Free, to achieve the greatest health benefits of foods.  However, this is not always possible. 

You will still lose weight and get healthier if you cannot find Organic/Grass Fed ingredients. 

Aim to always purchase the least processed foods available, with the least amount of Carbs/Sugars etc.  Read labels.
