WHAT FOOD IS HEALTHY ? 🤔 LEARN THE PLANT PASED FOOD PYRAMID !
First and foremost, there is not "healthy food" or "bad food", the thing is to find balance and what works for YOU !
So here is something I ALWAYS tell to my clients and I will share it a little with you all !
Our body is complex and require a wide range of nutriment to function properly.
Some nutrients doesn't need to be eating in a extreme large quantities (such as healthy fats), some should be eating everyday in abundance (such as grains, veggies, ...)
This will give you an idea of the plant-based food pyramid !
🔸 As you see, leafy greens are one of the most important food group, and I see too many people neglected them ! 🌿
Make sure to always combine a source of healthy fat with your greens, because some nutrients can't be absorb without them. Leafy greens are chock-full of macro- and micronutrients, including calcium, fiber, folate, vitamins C, B6, B2, E, potassium, manganese, magnesium, phytochemicals (such as lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene)
Remember, you are what you ABSORB, not so what you eat.
🔸 In the vegetable category, it includes carotenoid-rich and starchy vegetables (carrots, sweet potatoes, corn, tomatoes, ... )
🔸 Fruit have vitamins A, C, some B vitamins as well as some minerals. Dried fruit can contain iron.
🔸 Whole grains are the most important part of the plant-based diet, they provide fiber, protein, iron, B vitamins, ... It includes: brown rice, whole grain, oats, quinoa, bread, ...
🔸 Legumes have a supporting role in the diet, and should not be negect especially for active people as they are rich in protein, fiber, iron, calcium, zinc, selenium. It include cooked beans, lentils, chickpeas,, soy, ...
Then you have the healthy fat (olives, avocado, nuts and seeds) They are important to consume in an adequate omega 3/6 ratio. They contain fiber, protein, fat, iron, calcium, and minerals. They shouldn't be negected as they play a role in your cells welness, hormones, and whole body function.
No, there is not bad or good food that will make you healthy or fat when it is whole food. It's how you consume it, how much, and how you combine it. (I don't talk about processed junk food, it is another topic)
