Making healthy food approaches and eating well are not difficult. Doing simple things, changing your shopping habits, learning to cook healthy foods, and limiting your intake of certain foods, can result in a better diet and a healthier you.
Eating industrial food is the biggest problem; people who attempt to be well-being fail to admit: you cannot change everything overnight.
If you could, it would be so easy to go from eating bad to eating healthy.
Megan Rossi is a registered dietitian and nutritionist with a PhD in gut health from the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Queensland, has written many books about eating well (including the best seller Eat Yourself Healthy).
In her opinion, our food needs to be defended against ” needless complications ” from “nutrition science and from the food industry.”
According to Rossi, we need to stop reading labels and listening to the so-called scientific “experts.” Instead, she offered some simple, yet practical, tips for eating well and staying well-being.
Tip 1: ” Eat healthy natural food. Mostly plants.”
In other words, says Rossi, only eat “real food” or things your parents would recognize as healthy food such as spinach, beans, and lentils..
Make fruit and vegetables your main source of food and limit your meat intake. And when you eat, says Rossi, do so in moderation.
Tip 2: Shopping for meat or dairy products at the market is probably okay, but a supermarket is also full of unhealthy items like instant noodles, sodas, and similar products, the ones that aren’t good for us. Instead, try to shop at a farmer’s market or a local store when you can. The food there is fresher and healthier.
Tip 3: Rossi says that eating is not only about physical health and nutrition. ” Food is also about pleasure, about community and family.”
In other words, choosing the right food to eat is only the first step. Learning how to cook and sharing a meal with others are also important parts of eating well and being healthy.
Tip 4: Sally Fouad, an Egyptian nutritionist suggested replacing fried and greasy foods — which contain large amounts of carbohydrates and sugars — with green vegetables, salads, fruits and grilled meats.
Finally, Doing simple things, changing your shopping habits, learning to cook healthy foods, and limiting your intake of certain junk foods, can result in a better diet and a healthier you.
