I have been participating in the Proverbs 31 bible study called, "The Made to Crave Action Plan." This week we learned about adding polyphenols into our diet. "Polyphenols are compounds found primarily in plants, especially in naturally ripened, dark-skinned fruits and vegetables. Current research suggests they may play a significant role in promoting health and preventing disease." Quote from "Made to Crave Action Plan" by Lysa Terkeurst & Dr Ski Chilton. Our assignment this week was to try to add as many as we can I to our diet.
For me, these changes will have to be gradual based on our budget. For right now I do have green tea so I am brewing up all the green tea I have in the house to use as my primary drink.
Looking at the list, we already eat apples, corn, strawberries, grapes, raisins, dried cranberries, dried mangoes, oranges, broccoli, garlic, onions, nuts, dried beans, and cinnamon. That's encouraging! What I intend to start doing is being intentional about these foods and how much we eat. We will continue to get healthier as we gradually add these foods, whole grains and make good healthy food choices!
