1 – You are really what you eat
Recent dietary research has discovered 14 different nutrient-rich foods that again and again promote good overall health. Coined “superfoods” tend to have fewer calories, higher levels of vitamins and minerals, and many antioxidants that fight disease.
Beans (legumes), berries (especially cranberries), broccoli, green tea, nuts (especially nuts), oranges, squash, salmon. Soy, spinach, tomato, turkey, whole grains, oats, and yogurt can help stop and even reverse diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and some forms of cancer. And where one can have an effect on a certain part of the body, it can also affect the health of other functions and the performance of the body, since the whole body is connected. With these 14 foods as the basis of a balanced and solid diet, weight loss tricks and other nighttime shows can become a thing of the past in your life.
On the contrary, the harmful effects of an unbalanced diet are several and varied. Low energy levels, mood swings, fatigue all the time, weight changes, discomfort with the body are just some signs that your diet is unbalanced. An unbalanced diet can cause problems with the maintenance of body tissues, growth, and development, the functioning of the brain and nervous system, as well as problems with the bone and muscle systems.
Symptoms of malnutrition include lack of energy, irritability, a weakened immune system that causes frequent colds or allergies, and depletion of minerals that can trigger a variety of health problems, including anemia.
And since the body is connected, realizing that an unhealthy body will result in an unhealthy spirit only makes sense. When we nourish our body with these superfoods and supplement them with other fresh foods rich in nutrients and healthy, our spirit will be vitalized and healthy as a direct result.
Many modern diets based on pre-packaged prepared foods lack many vitamins and minerals, which can also affect our mental abilities and cause irritability, confusion and the feeling of being “in the fog” all the time.
Superfoods can be the basis of a healthy, healthy and nutritious solution to cure many of these ailments and more.
2 – Prevention is worth a pound of cure
It seems that everywhere you look, there is a new pill or medication that will “instantly cure” your illness, illness or health problem. And while you take a pill to cure the ills that may be convenient and simple, maybe it’s really time to sit down and take a good look at what you are feeding your body, or how it could be, without feeding your body. Are you really giving your body the nutrients it needs to take care of itself? When we look at what we have eaten, most of us discover that the decisions we have made in the name of convenience, simplicity or saving time have been really detrimental to our overall health: body, mind, and spirit.
Our modern diet consists mainly of excessive consumption of starch, sugar, fried and fatty foods. As a result, diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and some cancers are becoming more common.
Healthy foods and good nutrition can not only help you stay in shape but also help treat diseases. You may not even have to go to a health food store. You can buy them directly at your grocery store or take a trip to the local farmers market. And if you focus on basing a healthy and balanced diet in the 14 “Super Foods”, the harmful effects of these diseases can slow down, stop or even reverse.
And when you nourish your body physically with these nutrient-rich foods, your mental capacities increase, and your spiritual well-being also increases. Also, since your spiritual health is optimal, it will shine outward, and people will realize that you are happy, calm and that your stress levels have drastically decreased.
So look for ways to eliminate garbage from your daily diet and replace it with members of the Superfoods group. Your body, mind, and spirit will be healthier as a direct result.
3 – Color your way to daily health
It is important that we eat many different fruits and vegetables every day. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Fruits and vegetables provide essential vitamins and minerals, fiber and other substances that are important for good health. Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling up.
You’ve probably heard about the 5 A Day for Better Health program. It provides easy ways to add more fruits and vegetables to your daily eating patterns. It is vital that we eat a wide variety of vegetables and fruits in orange/yellow, red, green, white and blue/purple colors every day. By eating vegetables and fruits from each color group, you will benefit from the essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that each color group has to offer alone and in combination.
There are several different but simple ways to start incorporating vegetables and fruits into your family and favorite foods. You can start the day with 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice, cut bananas or strawberries on top of your cereal, or eat a salad with lunch and an apple for a snack. Include a vegetable with dinner and you already have about 5 cups of fruits and vegetables. You can even try adding a piece of fruit for a snack or an extra vegetable at dinner.
Do not be afraid to try something new to increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables. There are so many options when selecting fruits and vegetables. The kiwi, the asparagus, and the mango can become your new favorite. Keep things fresh and interesting by combining fruits and vegetables of different flavors and colors, such as red grapes with pieces of pineapple, or cucumbers and red peppers.
Get into the habit of keeping fruits and vegetables visible and easily accessible: you will tend to eat them more. Store cut and clean products at eye level in the refrigerator, or keep a large bowl of colorful fruits on the table.
