The other day I was going through some papers and I ran across these 3 sheets of paper. One had "Red Zone Foods, Yellow Zone Foods and Green Zone Foods".
I learned about these when I read a book from Chalene Johnson, PUSH.
It's been almost a year since I have read it, and I think I will read it again - it is a great first of the year book to read.
She talks about putting foods into different "zones".
Red means only on occasion food. I call this group the processed, in a box, man-made food.
Here are some of my red zone foods:
Margarine (really, I don't touch that stuff at all!)
Yellow means that these foods aren't "bad", but you still should limit them.
Here are some examples:
Now the Green Zone. In the green zone, you can eat whatever you would like! It is unlimited!
Here is what my green zone looks like:
Sprouted grain bread
The green zone is anything found in nature as God made it! (So that means that an apple and an apple pie are not the same thing :)
I'm happy that I found these papers. It reminds me that I need to choose my food choices better.
What's in your zones?
