HFHU Group Members Access Only Week 3: Recipes
This week's recipe focus is on making ordinary items more nutrient-dense. The easiest way to healthify your current diet is to start adding one or more nutrient-dense items (i.e. plants) to your existing favorites. Aim to Super Power, not Super Size, your food! (This week marks our first virtual Demonstration class which will feature this week's recipes. We will also be discussing this concept of nutrient-density and look at ways to do this in your everyday cooking!)

This week's recipes are a few simple, nutrient-dense dishes that use some of the items that were featured in the cook-along and demonstration classes.

HFHU Group Members Access Only Quick Start Video Overview
This video steps you through the preliminary actions to take in preparation for the release of Module 1.
HFHU Group Members Access Only Administrative Tasks
This section covers some items to get set-up and ready before the program starts.
HFHU Group Members Access Only Finding Your Baseline
The goal of this program is to get you to eat more REAL food. In order to do this, you need to know your starting point. This lesson provides a worksheet so you can track your current eating habits.
HFHU Group Members Access Only The Power of Protein
It seems like everyone these days recommends that you consume MORE PROTEIN. It is true that protein is vital for overall health and wellbeing, but it is more about the quality than the quantity, of what you eat. In this lesson, you will learn all about protein and its role in the body. You will also learn the best protein sources and the differences between animal and plant-based proteins.
HFHU Group Members Access Only The Truth About Carbs
Carbohydrates are the main energy source for the body. In this module, we look at what carbs are, what role they play in the body, and how to make better choices in our eating choices.
HFHU Group Members Access Only The Benefits of Fiber
Fiber is a type of carbohydrate and is essential for good health. With modern food processing, we do not get nearly enough on a daily basis. This lesson will take a look at what fiber is, some of the best sources, and easy ways to increase your intake.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to threats. When your body recognizes anything that is foreign such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, chemical or you sustain an injury such as a cut, your immune system becomes activated. This often triggers a process called inflammation. Intermittent bouts of inflammation directed at truly threatening invaders protect your health.However, sometimes inflammation persists, day in and day out, even when you are not threatened by a foreign invader. That's when inflammation can become your enemy. Many major diseases that plague us—including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer's—have been linked to chronic inflammation.
HFHU Group Members Access Only Anti-Inflammatory Eating
One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation comes not from the pharmacy, but from the grocery store. Choose the right anti-inflammatory foods, and you may be able to reduce your risk of illness. Consistently pick the wrong ones, and you could accelerate the inflammatory disease process.This lesson lists some of the foods to include and avoid if you are battling chronic inflammatory issues.
HFHU Group Members Access Only The Digestive System
The digestive system is responsible for taking whole foods and turning them into energy and nutrients to allow the body to function, grow, and repair itself. In this lesson, we will look at the different phases of the digestive process, look at the role of our thinking and surroundings and discuss ways to improve digestion naturally.
HFHU Group Members Access Only Leaky Gut Syndrome
Many digestive and other health conditions are the result of leaky gut syndrome. This is caused when the natural barrier that lines the gastrointestinal tract does not work properly or develops holes that allow large food particles, bacteria, and toxins directly into the bloodstream. This lesson will discuss how this happens and what we can do about it.
HFHU Group Members Access Only Digestive Enzymes
Enzymes are compounds that help critical biochemical reactions to happen in your body. Digestive enzymes are specifically those enzymes needed for digestion. This lesson will explain why they are important, the most common strains, natural food sources, and considerations for taking a supplement.
