Simple Ways To Eat Healthy

Posted on 29. Apr, 2013 by in Wellness

One of the best things you can do to prevent a number of common illnesses is to eat healthy. Adding green leafy vegetables, nuts, beans, high fiber fruits, and whole grains to your diet will help you accomplish this task. Select fresh, colorful vegetables and use extra virgin olive oil instead of butter or margarine when cooking.

A daily intake of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals are necessary components of a healthy diet. Purchase lean, low fat meat, as well as grass fed beef, and free range poultry when you shop. While dairy products like milk, cheese, and eggs supply fats needed by the body, an excessive amount can lead to weight gain. Low fat dairy products can help reduce the amount of fat in your diet.

When shopping for food, buy organic products as often as you can. Certified organic foods are produced without pesticides, synthetic hormones, or antibiotics. Cows graze in certified organic pastures, eggs are nest laid, and meats are humanely raised on organic farms.

An essential ingredient that is often overlooked when trying to eat healthy is water. Water supplies adequate hydration, but it can not be stored by the body. Without a sufficient amount of water, the body will dehydrate. Dehydration can lead to a wide variety of health problems such as ulcers, allergies, hypertension, arthritis, and asthma. Because it interferes with digestion, never drink water with your meals. The suggested wait time for drinking water after a meal is two hours or more.
