It’s a phrase we’re seeing bandied about a lot these days, but what exactly is dense nutrition? Quite simply, it’s picking the food that is more nutrient-dense... whole foods, foods high in vitamins and minerals, protein, fiber and healthy fats.
I often say giving up sugar is much easier if you can fill up on nutrient-dense foods. Crowd out the "bad" stuff by filling up on the good stuff.
Quitting sugar isn't just about eliminating sugar. It's also, at its core, about taking things back to the way our grandparents ate, before the advent of metabolic disease. It's about eating whole foods and about getting as many nutrients in as possible.
Eating dense is not difficult. It’s mostly about adding to what you do, thus:
Get dense and everything else... detoxing, fueling, dealing with sugar swings and staying slim... is taken care of.
So how do I do it? I employ some clever tricks. These ideas happen to be economical, efficient and environmentally friendly too.
