5. Stick to Organic
Lamb, turkey, duck, and chicken are all fair game, as is the occasional serving of grass-fed beef, all of which will minimize your exposure to hormones and synthetic chemicals used in conventional food production. Acceptable seafood sources include wild salmon, black cod, trout, anchovies, herring, and sardines (fresh and canned). For other low-mercury fish options, check seafoodwatch.org. And if you're having sushi, make yours a brown-rice version and check the soy sauce to make sure it's wheat-free.
