Healthy Meal Ideas: I recommend you have a look at a few of my favorite books: Grain Brain by Dr David Perlmutter, M.D., The Paleo Approach by Sarah Ballantyne, Phd, and The Perfect Gene diet by Pam McDonald, N.P. Avoid most or all grains (certainly avoid gluten), eat dark leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, 8 to 10 vegetables and fruits per day, olive oil, coconut oil, whole eggs, avocados, lean proteins.

See below: Anything in moderation. Keep off bottled drinks, sugary drinks, fruit juices (basically any drink other that water) and cut down fried food to minimum. About half of your plate has to be colorful (vegetables and fruit).

Natural Origin, No!: The idea the saturated fats were unhealthy was dishonestly promoted by ancel keys, starting in 1953. This was his "theory", though the evidence available to him contradicted his theory. So what did he do? He cherry picked the data - fraudulant, & did not look at other factors. Study: "how the government makes you fat", "stossel debunking food myths" foxnews, also nusi.Org. "lustig fatchance", etc.

Excercise vs. Eating healthy, what's more important, why, and can we do one without the other?

Both crucial but...: I would say eating healthy is definitely more important. If you eat poorly, no matter how much you exercise you will still be unhealthy. If one eats healthily they might have decent health even without much exercise. But obviously it is best to eat healthy and have at least a moderate amount of exercise. I would add practicing stress reduction & avoiding toxins to the list of essential practices.
