When you are on a diet, remember that healthy eating starts with what you buy. Your cart at the grocery store should be balanced the same way you balance your meals. This means making about half your purchases in produce, a quarter in grains, and the final quarter in lean protein sources. This way, the healthy options are always available when you get hungry.
If you’re reducing your red meat consumption but still trying to consume enough protein in your daily diet, then think about trying Quinoa. It is one non-meat food that has beneficial amino acids. It’s also chock full of vitamins and free of gluten. You are going to enjoy eating this healthy food too, because it has a mild, nutty flavor.
Getting the right nutrition is important for your body to function properly. To make sure you are getting the right vitamins for your body, you can take a multi vitamin. You can go to any health food shop, and find what will suit you best. And always check with your Doctor before taking any sort of supplements.
Nightshades (eggplant, tomatoes, capsicums/bell peppers) have pros and cons nutritionally. Consider them carefully. They may not agree with your digestion. (Remember BIO-INDIVIDUALITY). On the other hand, they may add real food value to your diet. The tomato has recently been cited as a great source of lycopene, which may help prevent cancer. Capsicums contain vitamin C.
Shopping more frequently for produce can reduce waste and increase the likelihood of actually eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Lots of people purchase their groceries once a week and sometimes forget to eat their fresh produce. If you stop by the store slightly more often, things won’t spoil as often and you’ll get into the habit of eating more fresh produce in no time.
Nuts contain good, natural oils that nourish your skin, nails, hair and body. Be sure to choose natural, unsalted nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, peanuts, etc.) to snack on instead of candies, chips and other empty foods. Nuts are a healthful, nourishing, skin-friendly alternative to mass produced snacks, that damage your health and your skin.
A great nutritional tip is to start eating prawns. Prawns are loaded with quality nutrition, including protein, essential fats, and alanine. Alanine is an amino acid, and it’s important because it produces carnosine, which is an antioxidant that helps the body respond better to the acid produced by exercise.
