A poor diet can lead to multiple health problems: headaches, fatigue, and somnolence. Natural foods may reduce stress, reduce anxiety, and bring relief to the common complaints listed above. Perhaps, many of your problems arise from the foods found in your fridge.
A healthy diet will increase vitality, improve complexion, and combat the ill effects of the polluted world we live in. Engineered foods contain unhealthy amounts of sugar, salt, and even more toxic chemicals. Many engineered foods have little nutritional value. With so little nutritional intake, no wonder you feel tired.
Some foods which start out having nutritional value get adulterated before they reach the market. Consumers cover peanut butter with a sugar-laced icing. Ketchup is merely sugar flavored tomatoes. Soy, which is healthy, gets turned into a sauce by adding caramel, sugar and salt.
For cooking oils, salad dressings, and mayonnaise, the bottle may say “cold pressed”, but the products have been heat processed to increase not their nutritional value but their self life.
Beverages, desserts and even yogurt can contain aspartame and other artificial sweeteners. Potato chips, pretzels, licorice and candy are just junk foods. Pizza, cake, pastries, waffles, pancakes, crackers, and most breads contain unhealthy white flour.
The energy in energy bars is often just sugar. Often there is no cream in whipped cream. These processed foods are unhealthy, and you suffer when you ingest them. Isn’t it time for a change? Eat healthy to reduce cholesterol. Stop poisoning yourself. Switch brands. Better, purchase pure and unprocessed farm-fresh products, or grow them yourself.
Here are some facts about healthy eating. Process foods are relatively new in human history. For millennium, we humans thrived on a natural diet. Nature provided the proteins, complex carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, water, and a dependable source of vitamins. Your energy factory, the intracellular mitochondria, depend on these natural foods.
Fruits contain essential nutrients; vegetables, important anti-oxidants. They boost your immune system and protect you from disease. The grocery self is loaded with salt, sugar and chemicals that are hidden in the foods we buy.
All major health organizations tell us to limit our intake of processed foods. These organization include health departments, heart and stroke foundations, and cancer societies. Perhaps, a small amount of processed foods will do little harm; but both children and adults are addicted to the taste of unhealthy foods.
Sugar-laced, processed food is sadly the norm. Become a prudent shopper. Read labels. Choose high quality foods. Avoid excess sugar and salt. Avoid additives and preservatives. Don’t feed your pets better than you feed yourself. Get back to basics.
Healthy is not boring; healthy means variety. Choose whole grain products such as whole rye, brown rice. Choose breads and cereals made from these wholesome grains. Choose fish, chicken, lamb, turkey for protein. Cheese, soy, eggs and plain yogurt are also good sources of protein.
If you need to stock something with a long self life, try canned tuna or salmon. Eat a large variety of colorful plant foods: vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and beans. A small amount of healthy fat can be obtained from olive oil, butter, olives, avocados, and natural peanut or almond butter.
If you can afford the small added price of going organic, purchasing organic products may well pay for itself by reducing the diseases from ingesting artificial chemicals. Organic may reduce you chance of suffering from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis. For your own health, take charge of your eating habits. Switch to pure, simple, life-sustaining foods. Let holistic nutrition shape your body and heal your mind.
It is very important we eat healthy and balanced food in order to stay physically healthy. If you suffer from tinnitus or ringing in your inner ear, it is even more important you eat healthy food in order to get rid of the pesky sound.
