The top three foods that you should eat every day are leafy greens, clean and lean proteins and water.

So why you should eat greens every day is they're the food most missing from our modern diet. Leafy green vegetables like broccoli, kale, bok choy, collards. They provide an incredible amount of nutrition and the smallest amount of calories.

And they're going to offer you things that you're not getting from your other foods. They're going to offer chlorophyll which helps to cleanse and build your blood. They're also going to offer minerals that we're sorely missing like iron and calcium. And also vitamins like vitamin K and vitamin C that you need to help protect your body and help it keep growing in a vitalized way.

Now for proteins you want to focus on clean and lean proteins. So if you do eat animal products you definitely want to be sure to choose organic as often as possible so that you're avoiding any toxic ingredients like chemicals or growth hormones.

And you need protein every day because your body goes through a system of repair every night when you're asleep. You need to keep continually repairing your tissues and building your body every single day with good quality protein.

And you also need water every day. You got to stay hydrated. Your brain needs to be hydrated to think well. Your digestive system needs to be hydrated to eliminate properly. And your digestive system is the seat of your health

So if you're properly hydrated you're going to eliminate properly and you're going to get all the nutrition out of your food as well as you can.
