Michi's Ladder

Most people, including myself, understand the general idea of eating healthy- no soda, no extra sugar, no extra salt, no fried foods, etc. However, when it comes down to the nitty gritty many people don't know where to start. I'm talking about what REALLY is healthy, and what's really not. Sure, an apple is healthy, but it's a lot better for you when you eat it with the skin (and corn is a carb, did you know that?) 

The wonderful people over at beachbody.com (where I am an independent coach- teambeachbody.com/FrancesK) have posted on their website a food guide called "Michi's Ladder". The basic idea is that foods are grouped into five different categories based on their nutritional value. Each step of the ladder indicates a level of nutritional "goodness"... the goal is to move from whatever category you fit into up to level one. 

Here's a link to Michi's ladder for you to check out. It also lets you know whether a food is a protein, carb or fat. I find it VERY useful when grocery shopping and I think you would, too!
