This then affects your immune system.

The Primed Lifestyle involves eating more healthy fats and quality Carbohydrates. This week I will highlight 7 quality Carbohydrate Recipes that are far superior in nutrients to any of the cheap carbs mentioned above.

Eat more quality carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein and you will reduce inflammation in your body (less aches and pains), bring your blood sugars down to a healthy level and stabilize them (better moods), and build your immune system so as to fight, not feed, disease.
