Top 5 Foods in America (all pretty blah!)

Dear Yoga Student,

According to the USDA, here’s a shortlist of the most-consumed foods (in no particular order):

  • Milk
  • Processed cheese
  • White breads & flour
  • Refined sugar
  • Colas
  • Ground beef

Milk might be a good food for some people, particularly for those whose body tolerates it and if they can find a local, whole, non-pasteurized and non-homogenized source (extremely rare).

But the rest? If you never ate that stuff again, you’d probably give yourself an instant bump in health and vitality.

Here’s the thing though:

We all get into weird patterns of eating where breakfast is ALWAYS the same and lunch consists of one of two options, and before you know it, it’s really easy to just eat milk, wheat, sugar, and corn all day long (in various forms) with
some other stuff on the side.

Does that happen to you?

Biodiversity in your diet is really fun, and it’s extremely healthy – particularly when you eat locally and focus on ugly, bumpy, army green colored veggies.

Here’s an experiment I’ve been doing, maybe you want to try for yourself…


Make a laundry list of every single plant(and animal) food you ate last week, and then try to double it this week. Most people have 15 or less, to give you an idea, so aim to eat at least 30+.

Let me know how it goes…

Stay bendy,
