In today’s economy it is important to make your every food dollar count towards health. People are living on tighter budgets than ever before and it’s important to know when you are serving “real food.” Nutritionists weigh in on some foods are thought to be “fatty” or lead to the demise of your health. (see slide show photos for Top 10 foods and their descriptions).
Properly prepared the opposite is true
You want foods to be healthy and filling. Food is nourishment and eaten for health. Diet Coke has one calorie but an avocado has 340 calories, which one is actually “good” for you? The Diet Coke is nothing but chemicals and holds no nutritional value, while the avocado speeds up your metabolism, supplies you with monounsaturated fats and omega-6 which increases metabolic rate.
Vegetable are not just a side dish
They are a meal like meat and can hold their own when it comes to nutritional value. Eat slowly and gently until you are full, not with a “feast or famine” approach gulping food down until you are over full. A good Miso soup chock full of nutrients is good to have before dinner if you are a “gulper” to slow you down make you feel full and leave room for important food to come.
Take restorative exercise
The vain and shallow sweat it out at the gym decreasing the health benefits and valuable “chi.” Healthy activity that activates and restores the mind, body and soul approach achieves well-being for the long haul and doesn’t deplete nutrients and promotes an active metabolism.
