What does a Healthy Diet consist of? In my eyes, I see a health conscious person, who eats fresh, organic if possible, who has switched to olive oil or grape seed oil, who focuses on veggies, who takes their time to eat, and who is willing to feed their soul.
Healthy Diet is about meeting your nutrient needs and your emotional ones. It is about nourishing your whole being. – mind body and spirit.
Healthy Diet is about taking in the amount of calories you expel, remaining the same weight. Fad dieting is not what healthy diet is about. Healthy Diet consists of eating a good healthy breakfast. i.e. cereal with nuts, fruit on a bed of healthful pro biotic yogurt; add milk. This breakfast has all the nutrients one needs to get a good start for the day.
Healthy snacking is good – a dark healthy plum, or nectarine is perfect.
Lunch could consist of a healthy salad, full of greens, avocado, seeds, and perhaps some asiago thinly sliced cheese on top or Greek feta cheese in sprinkles. Perhaps a sparkler or a herbal tea.
Healthy snack for a healthy diet in the afternoon how about an apple?
Dinner does not have to be heavy, so how about Chicken with Tandori Butter which is a recipe that has every healthy nutrient in it.
An evening snack you say? Not too late – but a piece of dark chocolate 80% to 90% chocolate and a half an apple or pear with it.
The goal of a healthy diet is not only to feel good on the outside, but to feel good inside as well.
Drink approximately 8 cups of water extra daily to keep your system cleansed.
Get your 8 hours of sleep uninterrupted nightly.
Above all, get exercise, and meditate. This is my concept of a healthy diet.
