If you want healthy, then start with food choices that also eat healthy. Check out Down To Earth, a company dedicated to carry real food from real farmers. We love their grass-fed beef selection wherein cattles are fed with 100% local grasses. These grasses are essential in boosting the animal’s immune system keeping them healthier and happier. They are not treated with any antibiotics or hormones, which are commonly found from imported beef sold in the market. Check out their dairy, lamb, chicken products that are reasonably priced and you are in for a great deal when you buy in bulk!
3. Grande Rice Bran Oil
Mindful eating begins when you choose to cook your food using healthier alternatives such as Grande Rice Bran Oil. Unlike other cooking oils, Grande Rice Bran Oil is 100% physically refined. It means that all the natural antioxidants and nutrients remain intact within the oil so there is no need to add nutritional additives in the process. It also has a high smoke point meaning you can fry, sear and sauté food without compromising its taste and preserving the food’s natural flavor. Similar to olive oil, it gets the best of both worlds of the premium and non-premium oils like canola, corn and coconut vegetable. Grande Rice Bran Oil can also be used as a salad dressing. It’s pretty much all-around. The work of this cooking oil doesn’t stop in the kitchen alone. With regular consumption, it helps develop a better cardiovascular health overall. It is hypoallergenic, rich in antioxidants that may help lower diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity that is definitely perfect for you, the whole family and even for those with medical conditions.

5. Pure Nectar Cold-Pressed Juice Bar
And if you’re really decided on switching to a healthier lifestyle, we challenge you to take a juice detox.

Choose from their juice samplers if you want to have a taste first and when you’re ready to commit, avail their Juice Cleanse Sets that offers 1-3 days of cleansing.
Keeping up with a healthy lifestyle is hard especially when a lot of temptations are there to welcome us – like drive thru’s, food parks and other sweets readily available in the market. But if you have the will and the mindset to change for the better, it wouldn’t hurt to consider these options we’ve collected for you. Afterall, none of them are boring and tasteless! Try them out and let us know which one makes the cut! Good luck!
