In a perfect world, food would be wholesome, fresh and delicious and we wouldn’t need to worry about trying to eat healthier. But in the real world the plethora of processed, packaged, an chemically-sprayed foods makes us uncertain of the wholesomeness and safety of our food. Genetic engineering and gene insertion are modern techniques that make today’s food choices even more risky.
Unfortunately, we cannot change today’s food industry. Instead we have to choose wisely and in a more informed and responsible a manner than ever before to make sure we eat healthier. Adding a supplement such as VascuCleanse for heart health or our Farm-acy Greens or Fruits for increased nutrition can help immensely to bridge the gap left by today’s standard diet.
Foods of 100 years ago by the same name may not be the same as grown or eaten today. Yet, it seems that there is always something wrong with whatever we choose to be a “healthful” replacement for something harmful. Though we have to read package labels, we cannot fully understand what is written on them unless we know the “specialized jargon” of food labeling. And then we can’t even trust with certainty what is written on the package.
Keep it simple to eat healthier!
Here are a few suggestions that stand true, regardless of changes in the food industry that will help you eat healthier:
- Eat fresh, seasonal foods as grown, especially beans/legumes and green leafy vegetables.
- Prepare them simply and tastefully but without spice and unhealthful condiments.
- Get plenty of variety and colors over the course of a week.
- Don’t forget nuts and seeds, especially flax and chia.
- Eat enough to be just short of being satisfied, and wait to feel satiated.
- Avoid animal products. (If eaten, they should be clean, range-grown, defatted, drained of blood, well cooked and in small portions.)
- Food choices should ensure adequate nutrients, phytochemicals, and abundant fiber.
- Supplementary intake of Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D (in temperate zones) is a prudent dietary practice.
- Pure water should be the preferred beverage (drink plenty between meals, not during).
- Eat 2-3 balanced meals per day and breakfast every day.
