Healthy Eating Ideas For Your Best Life
Food is meant for the human body as sustenance and nutrition. Truly, that is its only intent. It is meant to provide essential nutrients that work to support internal bodily process and nutrify major organs. It provides us with energy and is essential for the proper physical development of children.
Healthy eating eludes many people today and we are seeing the consequences of this everywhere, Obesity, heart disease, diabetes and stroke are a few of the illnesses that are chronic. It doesn't have to be this way.
You may be continuing unhealthy eating patterns without even knowing it. You may need another wake-up call around ways you can eat healthier in order to avoid the complications that come from poor nutrition and poor eating habits:
You Eat Food That Has Been Created In A Factory
Instead of cooking with fresh life-affirming real organic ingredients, you might be choosing to eat highly processed foods, which are high in preservatives and are usually high in salt and/or calories.
Take the time to cook a meal with fresh real life-affirming real ingredients, which are healthier foods.
Find a nice selection of home-cooked meals you can put into your own personal cookbook.
When you cook for yourself, you know exactly what has gone into making any particular meal and you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing what you put into your body. If cooking at home is not a practice for you, the easiest way to begin is find 3 recipes you will enjoy and then learn how to make them until you are comfortable cooking them. Then learn 3 more. Over a year you will have 12 new recipes that you are now skilled at. Enjoy.
Be sure to share the recipe you enjoy the most in the comments. My best recipe is turmeric, cayenne pepper, black pepper chicken wings, with baked carrot fries and a Caesar salad.
You Finish Your Meal Before Anyone Else
If you are the first one done eating at the dinner table, you are probably eating mindlessly and are not savoring your meal in healthy ways.
Chowing down your meal within a few minutes can lead to indigestion and a second helping, which can lead to weight issues over time.
Instead, consider taking a moment to have gratitude for your day and the food you are about to eat that will nourish your body. And then consider eating more slowly, taking part in whatever conversation is going on around the table.
Your hormonal signal to turn off eating takes about 20 minutes so if you finish much sooner than that, you will feel hungry even when you have taken in enough calories, which typically results in eating more food than you really need.
