Let’s Talk Nutrition…
Healthy eating is so important! When we put good food in, we get good results in return. Healthy eating can help with weight loss, muscle gain, disease prevention, and speedy recovery. Healthy diets produce healthy bodies that can do more and live longer.
Eating healthy is not as easy as it used to be. We are constantly being bombarded with information from “nutrition experts” in the media who all say different things. Supermarkets are packed with an abundance of unhealthy, packaged, processed foods that are marketed to people living crazy hectic lives like us. Those sneaky jerks! Healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard or confusing or a headache. Let us help!
So What should I eat?
Basically, base your diet on garden vegetables (especially greens), lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch, and no sugar. That's about as simple as we can get. Keeping your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store while avoiding the inside aisles is a great way to protect your health. Real food goes bad so the stuff with long shelf lives are all suspect. Eating more real food and less of all the other stuff is a great place to start your healthy eating journey.
What Foods should I avoid?
Coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity, and physiological dysfunctions have all been linked to a diet too high in refined or processed carbohydrates. The less processed foods and added sugars we eat the better. Check out our blog posts on avoiding processed foods and added sugars for more information on what foods fall under those categories and what real foods you can replace them with.
