The idea is to eat more whole grains and plant based foods. That doesn't mean that you can never eat meat again it simply means that you should limit the amount of animal protein and processed foods that you ingest.
If you choose to eat chicken or beef, make sure that it is organic, cage free, grass fed, no hormones, no antibiotics. In addition to all the hormones and antibiotics, animal products are higher in fat and cholesterol. It also contains casein which is a known carcinogen.
If you can switch from cow's milk to almond, rice or coconut milk; they are healthier options.
When was the last time you saw a cow giving it's newborn goat milk or or any other type of milk and vice versa?
*Denotes that soy products including tofu is a good source of protein but should be not be consumed in large amounts due to the estrogenic effects.
