Am I just trying to justify eating things that are bad for me because I like eggs and bacon for breakfast and an after-dinner dessert that isn’t “low-fat”?
Not at all. Not only do I enjoy natural foods that are high in cholesterol, but I can eat them without worry because I know that these foods are actually good for my body.

In this post, I’ll show you how you can make the most of sprouted grains.
