Healthy Meals for a New and Improved you
In America, the average consumer eats too much junk food and does not consume enough wholesome fruits and vegetables. It’s imperative to start eating healthy at some point in your life and it starts with you, on YOUR plate. If your plate is full of fast-food, sugars and chemicals, chances are that your body will not stay healthy very long. On the other hand, if your plate is colored with vegetables, fruits, complex carbohydrates and lean protein, your body will take care of you. And since healthy living starts with the food you eat, it is important to know what food you should be eating. Healthy meals are balanced meals. And balanced meals consist of a variety of foods.
Components of Healthy Meals
Start with vegetables. The first thing you put on your plate should be a serving of vegetables. Whether hidden in a soup, pasta dish, salsa, in a salad or just plain raw—vegetables offer immense benefits to your health. Not only do they provide a host of vitamins and minerals but they are also low in calories and high in fiber. Add them in and you’ll eventually see the health benefits.
Like vegetables, fruits are full of vitamins and minerals. The inclusion of fruit into your diet can improve your skin tone, appearance and energy levels. Additionally, with the wide variety of fruits available, you are sure to find one you like. However, caution should be taken with fruit since they are naturally high in sugar, so don’t consume too much at once.
There are a lot of misconceptions about carbohydrates or carbs for short. Many people think that all carbs are bad, but that is not the case. Complex carbs like whole grain, corn and potato take time to digest before the body can turn the food into energy, but this will keep you feeling full longer.
Lean protein can be found in premium cuts of animal meat, nuts and certain grains. Since protein is the building block of muscles, it is a key component of healthy meals.
Vitamins and Minerals
Although not commonly included as a component of healthy meals, vitamins and minerals are absolutely necessary for your health. Consult with your doctor to see if you have any vitamin deficiencies and add in the appropriate supplements (if necessary)—or eat foods that contain the vitamins and minerals you need for proper health.
With balanced, healthy meals and proper nutritional supplements, good health is just around the corner.
