When it comes to maintaining a healthy diet, people usually fixate on the restriction part — like counting calories or carbs, and staying away from the “bad” stuff like sugar and fat.
I’ll admit — I’m not a big fan of counting calories or carbs or fat grams. But staying away from the bad stuff — foods that rob us of our energy, make us gain weight, or weaken our immune system — is indeed important.
And it’s just as important — just as powerful — to focus on expansion.
Expansion, in this case, means considering the full range of whole, unrefined foods that are beneficial to our bodies. And not just having a green smoothie every morning and calling it good.
Which is an excellent start, of course… but why stop there?
