While I don’t think it is right to label foods “good” or “bad”, as this can create a negative relationship with food – I personally believe that there are foods that I would label “good, better and best” depending on what your specific health goals are.
Is your current diet tailored to your health goals?
A lot of people don’t realize that specific foods have specific healing properties.
There are foods that can fight inflammation, foods for glowing skin, foods that boost elastin production, foods that can slow aging and reduce wrinkling, and foods that can bust cellulite and fat deposits etc.
It’s pretty simple:
You want glowing skin? Try incorporating chia seeds into your diet!
You want to fight wrinkles? Try incorporating some acai!
By consuming a nutrient dense whole foods diet that is rich in superfoods, you can reduce oxidative stress and cellular damage caused by free radicals.
I personally think that enjoying processed foods here and there isn’t “bad”, but constantly consuming a diet that is rich in processed foods will likely result in accumulation of toxins, hormonal imbalances, poor circulation and even disease (which in my eyes, isn’t the “best”).
How to make Chocolate Chia Pudding:

Once it forms a gel consistency, mix in 2 tbsp of raw cacao (and optional stevia to sweeten)
In a sauce pan, heat a handful of mixed berries
Add to chia pudding and enjoy!
