Meat & Refrigerated Items

I feel the need to include every sort of disclaimer here because these foods are not perfect and I am sure many will find reasons to criticize them. However, I will absolutely admit how hard it can be to switch your family to a whole food based diet when coming from the standard American diet. While theses foods are not ideal and can be very inflammatory due to poor quality oils, sugar, non-organic, high in x,y,z etc. they may help reduce free glutamate exposure and/or are slightly cleaner options when switching to a whole food diet.

Because some of these foods are not completely REID approved, I will refrain from posting them to the REID Facebook group. However, I will [...]
