The chart below shows which foods are healthy, and which food our body requires.
If our body doesn’t have the right fuel-foods, we may lack energy, and worse make ourselves ill. To ensure our hair and nails remain strong, and our skin flawless, it’s imperative we don’t abuse our body and overload on sugary foods, fatty foods and carbs. We need a selection of the above foods per day / week.
