Be Thy Healer feast to your health

Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”

Looking to build healthier habits? But your BUSY right! You want to create a healthier diet and lifestyle for you and your family but Life and scheduling keeps getting in the way. Time is often perceived as the most precious commodity to the average family today. But a shift is rising and many are beginning to recognize that the most prized commodity one truly has is our health! What our lifestyle and environment consists of is either protecting and fighting disease or feeding it and many individuals are seeking to shift their current approach. Remember, you don’t have to change everything all at once. Start with small steps that you can feel good about. In a previous post I discussed the importance of pure water as our major source of hydration. Today I am writing on basic food choices one should try to follow.

  1. Add nutrient-rich foods. Instead of thinking about what not to eat, think about the things you can add to your diet. Strive to incorporate more greens and colorful veggies into your meals. If possible use GMO free and organic when possible.
  2. Eat closer to nature. Concentrate on whole foods in their natural forms, such as fruits and vegetables. If it looks like it did when it grew from the earth, that’s your queue that it’s a healthier choice. I good rule of thumb is also if it’s in a package its been processed, and we want as minimal processing possible in our diet.
  3. Go for whole grains. Instead of reaching for regular pasta or white bread, look for varieties made with 100% whole grain flour. Better yet, fill your belly with whole grains, such as brown rice, quinoa, oats or barley avoiding wheat flour altogether.
  4. Avoid “low-fat” products, instead look for unadulterated whole and better yet organic options.
  5. Reorganize your plate. Think of lean meat and fish caught not farmed as flavor boosters instead of the main event. Put beans, whole grains and veggies in the spotlight, and keep servings of meat and fish(wild caught) at 3 ounces or less (that’s about the size of a deck of playing cards).IMG_9439

Nutrition does not have to be complicated but our current grocery store often seems pretty overwhelming. I great tip is to meal plan lay out your recipes and ingredients needed make a detailed list and do not stray from it. Try to stick to the outer rim of the store or a fantastic option is to avoid the store and its temptations all together. Many grocers now offer an order online and simple pick up option. Jet.com is also fantastic and has free shipping on orders over $35 as well and coupon codes galore! Farmers markets are also a great place to get local produce and get to know your farmer and their farming practices. Plant a garden to alleviate grocery costs get a few chickens if possible. Eating well can be more expensive yes but there are many tips and tricks to keep costs down. Stay tuns for those tips and more.
