EAT WELL AND PROSPER
EAT THIS:“I'm into fine fish with a slight lime twist, veggies on the side of course” —Rick Ross, “Yacht Club”
Nutritional Value:“Fish is a cold-water animal. It has vitamin D and omega fatty acids that help reduce your blood pressure and heart disease, as opposed to red meats, pork or chicken. It’s better to bake or broil instead of frying, which adds more fat. Citrus helps enhance any food, but limes have vitamin C, which helps increase your immune system, fight off disease, increase white blood cells and fight off certain bacteria.”
NOT THAT:“I hit the liquor spot, then the chicken spot/Three pieces, French fries—I hope my shit still hot” —Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, “Chicken Spot Rock”
Nutritional Value:“All animal products have cholesterol and saturated fats. The more you eat, the harder they are on your liver and organs to try and process it. It also raises your blood pressure and cholesterol. If you’re not eating organic beef and chicken, then you are subject to hormones and steroids put into those foods that can affect all kinds of things in your body, from cysts and growth to cancer.”
