Eating Healthy Foods!

December 19, 2009

Eating Healthy FoodsHealthy eating habits have forgotten. You can see everywhere, people are lined up at the drive-thru and gouging themselves with fast foods. And I hope this article will open your eyes to some benefits of healthy eating.

A healthy list of food choices for a nutritious diet includes fruits, vegetables, and proteins. The health benefits of these foods help prevent illness, flu and diseases.

Fruits are high in vitamin C. This vitamin helps the immune system and keeps illnesses at bay. These vitamins contain essential nutrients the body needs to stay healthy. You can try apples strawberries, oranges, lemons and blueberries.

Adding vegetables to your daily meals will provide other vitamins and nutrition. The health benefits of eating tomatoes and leafy greens such as spinach helps fight against heart disease and even some types of cancers.

Eating fruits and vegetables in their most natural state is the best, but if you have to cook them try to steam or boil them to keep some nutritional value. Also avoid adding an excess of saturated fats such as butters and oils. These things just take away nutrition and add fat to your diet.

Other foods on the healthy list include legumes from the family of peas and beans, the darker legumes especially provide nutritional value.

Proteins such as salmon and nuts are rich in omega 3. Omega 3 is good for brain development. And, snacks such as carrots, celeries, nuts, peanut butter and bananas are excellent sources to improve physical health as well as the loss of a few pounds. When consuming a nutritious snack you can eat as much as you want without having that guilty conscious.

The desire to eat smarter is catching on as obesity and diseases are running rapid. Going back to what you learned in school and eating from the four food groups still applies today for a healthy diet.
