While many experts agree that you exercise should be an important part of your life (if you want to be healthy—and who doesn’t?), good health begins and ends with the proper diet. After all, you need energy to be able to work out and you need antioxidants to repair the damage done to your cells when you work out (this is a good thing).
Where do you get these things? Well, you can always take a natural vitamin and mineral supplement, but for the best results you should simply try and eat better. Here are a few things you need to remember when trying to maintain a proper diet:’
We are all living in a very advanced and fast-paced world full of stress, takeaway food, coffee, and more stress. With that, it can be very difficult to keep yourself healthy and find time to exercise, especially if you have the same time schedule as me. I work throughout the day, thus I do not have any spare time to exercise. I cannot go on a diet either. Apart from I cannot find the best diet plan for myself, I feel that eating healthy foods is enough to keep myself trim and fit.
Reasons I chose eating healthy over diet
What is the first thing that comes to your mind once you hear the word “breakfast”? For me, what comes to mind is a plate full of toast, bacon, and scrambled eggs. Eggs have always been a staple to every breakfast meal because they are packed with nutrients and proteins that will help keep your energy levels up during the day.
However, most people I know tend to shy away from making eggs a part of their daily habit. Blame the news, studies, and findings stating how eggs are full of cholesterol and that people should not always have them for their meal since it will have negative effects to the body. I used to believe that notion too, until a recent British study opposed the entire negative claims about eggs and health.
Many dieters believe that consuming five servings or portions of fruits and vegetable each day is the best way to achieve a healthy body. Well, this belief is no longer true because recent studies show that achieving a healthy and disease-resistant body is possible if we consume a minimum of eight servings or portions of fruits and vegetables.
With the fast pace of society seemingly gaining speed as each year passes, the temptation for parents to allow their children to eat what they like, if its a quick fix, is also increasing. The fast food outlets offer an easy alternative to a packed lunch and enable time saving solutions. However, if they were to step back and just take a moment to think about what they’re subjecting their kids to, most would be horrified and start to realise that maybe they should be looking to a more healthy routine.
With money now still being tight since the recent recession (my country Portugal is still in the recession) I have decided to show you how easy it is cook wonderful family meals at home for very little money.
Our main objective is to make these recipes healthy so that you are your children are getting all the nutrients that they need.
My other objective is to offer meals that will have you and your family full without feeling that you have just endured half portions.
There are many reasons why I love to cook fresh food and the number one reason is that the taste is so different from food that is not fresh. The problem is that many people unfortunately do not ever taste fresh food and they just cannot imagine that it would taste any different. After all, a carrots a carrot and a piece of salmon is a piece of salmon, isn’t it. Well no, not really. Fresh vegetables for example really do taste so much different from tinned vegetables that you would not believe it.
