Food choices have a huge impact on health and wellbeing.  Talk to a PURE Fitness Nutrition Specialist now to see how making small adjustments in what you buy, bring into your home, choose as ingredients, and eat out can support or sabotage your health and fitness goals.
Based on your unique preferences and lifestyle, PURE will help you find, select, store and prepare healthful meals and snacks.
  • Upgrade ingredients in your meals to do more good 
  • Swap your snacks to do less harm
  • Up your daily nutrition by adding superfoods to everyday meals and snacks 

Many health experts today recommend eating a plant-based diet including protein rich plant foods such as lentils, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds.  PURE's top recommendation to clients is to primarily eat foods that are from the earth, while reducing and eliminating as many processed and packaged foods as possible.  

 

A recently published article shows that 58% of the calories Americans eat today come from ultra processed foods.

PURE helps clients make the best choices possible while staying true to what will work for each person in the long term. We will review what's in your pantry and refrigerator and help you swap out foods with harmful ingredients for cleaner versions of the same foods.

Tip:  Where you shop matters.  According to an article in Slate, more than half of the food items sold at Walmart would be banned at Whole Foods based on the company's 78 "unacceptable ingredients for foods" list.
