Foods to Eat, Foods to Avoid: Part 1

Last week, a reader suggested that I go through her pantry- telling her what to ditch, and what to keep. What a great idea, Maureen! So this week, I'll be working through Jordan Rubin's list of the three food categories: Extraordinary, Average, and Trouble, highlighting the ones that our family loves, and giving you the brands that we buy.

I'll start this series by listing the foods in each category, and then giving you the brands I love for each one.

Let's kick this off by looking at the Extraordinary foods! This is taken from The Great Physician's RX for Health & Wellness, on page 55. Today we will take a look at the extraordinary meats God has given us.
