Here are a couple of good websites that might be helpful to you as you walk through this maze of how to eat healthy, really healthy.

Inflammation is a real problem in the Standard American Diet that most of us have eaten all our lives. That is why there are so many diseases like heart disease, diabetes, stroke, obesity and many more This website below is very helpful it figuring out if some of your favorite foods are inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. It is usually the opposite of what you might think. Type in a favorite food in the box at the top of the website, then look in the list for the version you eat and see what the Glycemic Index is (looking for under 50) and the inflammatory/anti-inflammatory number is. You are looking for the highest anti-inflammatory foods to be the best. Look at cayenne pepper and then look up a banana, raw. You will see that the cayenne is extremely ANTI inflammatory and the banana is inflammatory to your body. This website should help you make much better choices:
