We are what we eat
Updated: Sep 15, 2021
Since the beginning of creation, God created the food to act as medicine.
"Then God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you."
Eating healthy shouldn't be about strict limitations on what you can and cannot eat.
Rather, it should be about fueling your body, having more energy, improving your mood and overall your health.
In general, most of us just consume foods based on the taste, smell
appearance. We should really pay more attention to the benefits we get from what we put in our mouth.
In order to eat healthy, all we have to do is combine nutritional science, common sense and moderation to obtain pure enjoyment from our meals. Let's say that you have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and today you crave a juicy steak, great.
Get the stake of your choice, make sure it is not 16oz but 8-10oz. Make a delicious simple salad and add a garniture of yummy sautéed veggies. Now let's see what foods are there to keep high blood pressure and cholesterol in check.
Blood Pressure: Beets, brocoli, tomatoes, celery, carrots, beans, lentils, berries and pistachios.
High cholesterol: dark chocolate, fatty fish, walnuts, avocados, wholegrain, garlic, dark leafy greens
Eat lots of fruits and veggies daily, (it is recommended to eat 3 veggies and 2 fruits daily)
Base your daily meals on starchy carbohydrates and high fiber foods such as whole grain and wholewheat bread, pasta, crackers, brown rice and potatoes.
Change your meals daily, in order to obtain all the nutritional values needed for our bodies.
Hydrate and stay active
Stay away from unhealthy fats, sodas, sugar, salt and alcohol.
Stay healthy, stay safe and positive
