Is what you eat healthy?
Are you a junk food junkie, or do you try to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet?
How do you know that what you are eating is actually healthy for you?
Go into your kitchen and look in your refrigerator and pantry.
Do you know what types of things should NOT be there?
Contrary to the lovely television commercials reassuring you that corn syrup is safe….. that is the first thing I recommend that you search for and eliminate from your kitchen.
When you begin searching, you will see that high fructose corn syrup is in everything!
Your body does not even recognize this stuff as a food source and does NOT secrete insulin to digest it when you eat it!
HFCS must be detoxed through your liver because your body is not digesting it.
If you eat enough high fructose corn syrup, you will crave it, BUT it isn’t really food!
Get it out of your kitchen.
Every time you resist health robbing foods, and choose fruits and vegetables instead, you improve your health instead of adding to your distress.
If you eat a diet of highly processed and chemicalized foods, odds are your palate is coated with yeasty build up so that you aren’t enjoying how wonderful Mother Nature’s goodies taste!
Increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables and your palate will be washed clean so that you can actually taste the wonderful subtle flavors of natural foods.
Replacing undesirable foods with wholesome foods will play a big role in your healthy diet plan.
What food to you need to stock in your kitchen in order to support a healthy diet plan?
If you remove from your kitchen all of the junk foods that tempt you, and only eat them when you are not at your home…. you will eat far less of these unhealthy foods.
It will be so much easier to choose healthy snacks when they aren’t hidden behind the potato chips and candy.
The good news here is that there are many choices to choose from when stocking healthy foods in your kitchen.
A healthy diet plan is only possible if you plan ahead.
Healthy Foods That Should Be On Your Grocery List
- raw nuts and/or nut butters (raw almonds are super food you know!)
- fresh fruits and vegetables (preferably organic, put a garden in your yard or start one with your neighbors)
- caffeine free herbal teas
- fresh lemons to squeeze into your water (a much better habit than soda)
- organic grains (oatmeal, short grain brown rice, millet, rye, etc.)
- dried beans
- flesh foods (meat) should be fresh and lean, and small portions, seafood is a healthier choice
- raw seeds
- cooking oils should be cold pressed (extra virgin olive oil is best, but not above medium heat)
- sprouted bread (made with sprouted grains NOT flour)
These are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Add good whole foods to your menu and avoid a few bad ingredients to get your healthy diet plan rolling.
Once you start to feel better you will have more motivation to start illuminating processed foods.
If you’ve become used to them, and they are your comfort foods, you may find it challenging.
Give your healthy diet plan the attention it deserves, and start enjoying your life more than you have in years!
