Which Foods Are Healthy?

Share

I think you will agree that there is a lot of confusing information about healthy foods.

There are many different contradicting advice on the internet. How do you know which is correct?

The best person to determine which food is healthy for you is YOU.

Are your favorite meals making you feel tired or bloated? Than you probably need to change what you eat.

Do you feel good after eating and you have a lot of energy? Than you are eating the right thing.

My idea about a healthy meal is one that contains most, if not all the essential nutrients the body needs.

Consider this: there are over 80 essential nutrients like essential minerals, trace-minerals, essential vitamins and essential amino-acids.

They are named essential because although these are needed for the body, it cannot produce these, but relies on getting them from food.

There is not one single type of vegetable or fruit that would contain all the essential nutrients, thus the more fruit and vegetables you consume the higher the chance that you are giving your body all the nutrients it needs.

Highly processed foods are void of nutrients. The best way to control what nutrients goes in to your body is making your own nutritious meal.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water as the body needs a lot of fluid daily.

Coffee dehydrates. If you are a coffee lover, like me, try to change your morning coffee for a green drink or lemonade and reduce your daily coffee amount.

Most important thing however is to listen to your body. It sends you its signals, and only you can decode them.
