A key focus of AC Art Of Food is derives from focusing on foods that benefit the body as a whole. One specific component in particular, our blood. And I have a super list of 7 Benefits of Eating Right for Your Blood. Think about it, blood is our lifeline and is essentially the juice we need to exist! Our blood cells heal us and if compromised will ultimately lead to our demise. So it's absolutely essential that this element in our bodies is operating at the highest level of efficiency.
I first became aware of this particular way of eating by reading the actual book specifying this regimen. Over the years I have experienced, as well as witnessed, numerous accounts of this eating style where weight has been successfully lost and maintained, health significantly improved, and energy levels skyrocketed!
So doesn't eating right for your blood make basic common sense? Still not convinced? If not, check out the list below and let me know your thoughts!
7 Benefits of Eating Right for Your Blood
1. Consuming specific foods that condition the blood for your optimal heath.
2. Ideal weight loss by eating the right food combinations specifically battling your fat and stress.
3. A healthy diet custom for your make-up boosting energy levels.
4. The ability to determine which foods to avoid that work against your body and identify those acting as medicine for healing.
5. Determine which types of exercise will give you the best results inside and out.
6. Become aware of which diseases and infections you are most prone to and eating the right foods to fight back.
7. Slow down the aging process by consuming specific foods focusing on cell regeneration.
what are your thoughts on eating according to your blood type?
The Verdict: AWESOME!! I do believe my favorite part of the bar though was the amazing variety of sweet and luscious tropical fruit- truly earth's candy if I ever tasted. Our amazing server Bridgette gave us an awesome tip: Come down to dine 30 minutes prior to the end of the buffet. That way we'd pretty much be satisfied for most of the day! Boy was she ever right! And as an added bonus, Bridgette became such an insight to me as our 'culinary health' discussions regarding blood conditioning provided validation for a facet of AC Art Of Food. She was and is a true gem!
The Verdict: A toe-wiggling winner!
The Verdict: The perfect ending bite to a perfect vacation!

I try my very best to develop and enhance recipes that are the tastiest versions of plants. While I have a few tricks up my sleeve that produce delicious outcomes, one of my favorite methods is using infused oils and vinegars- full flavor less guilt. You can always make your own collection of these tasty culinary accessories and bottle them, as I tend to do from time to time. But what I love to do (and most convenient) is pick up the delicious bottles of gourmet oils and vinegars from the foodie aisles of my neighborhood TJMaxx, HomeGoods, and Marshall’s.
From exotic herb steeped vinegars to rare truffle and fruit infused oils, you can’t beat these culinary-dream-finds that for the most part are under $10! And some for as low as $4.99! Plus the flavor enhancement it adds is unbeatable. Both my roasted green beans and grilled rainbow trout were popping with amazing flavor. The added benefit also is that these oils are healthy ones full of the 'good fat' our bodies and brains need to thrive. The general base of the oils I find are olive(virgin and extra virgin), grape seed, and avocado. Did I mention these make wonderful gifts for the foodie in your life? #WINNING
So the next time you’re out shopping for throw pillows for your couch, or that perfect dress for your vacation, don’t forget to visit the specialty foodie aisles and grab a few bottles of these treasures, your tastebuds will thank you!
Be sure to comment below and share your fav finds from these stores that you’ve discovered, I’d love to hear about them!
