Looking for the best way to live healthy? The importance of a healthy diet menu cannot be emphasized enough! Sticking to a healthy diet menu isn't as challenging as you may think. Moreover, it will also help you get into shape. So, in case you are contemplating going on some extreme diet which requires you to only eat a specific food, you may want to reconsider.
There is certainly a lot of truth in the fact that lesser processed foods are more nutrient rich. Remember, fresh food is a better alternative to frozen food. On the other hand, frozen food is a better alternative to packaged or canned food. When you opt for a healthy diet menu, make sure it is simple enough to encourage you to stick to it in the long term.
A healthy diet menu must begin with a healthy breakfast that includes foods that will boost your energy. This includes oatmeal, strawberries, chopped nuts and blueberries, brown bread. etc. The perfect recommendation for lunch is a sandwich made from whole grain bread, a vegetable salad or a bowl of fresh vegetables. For an evening snack you can opt for low calorie food such as a apple or a handful of walnuts.
For dinner, you can consume a healthy diet menu that includes a serving of broccoli and spinach or a portion of baked or roasted chicken breast, steamed asparagus, a small size baked potato with salsa and a whole grain roll.
Keep in mind, broccoli and spinach contain higher amounts of protein as compared to meat. Although, turkey and chicken are extremely rich in protein and low in saturated fat, yet broccoli and spinach contain a much higher amount of protein. The best part is that broccoli and spinach have zero fat. Remember, plant-based proteins are more bio-available for your body. Moreover, they are also non-acidic.
Drink lots of water all through the day. Opt for fresh fruits and leafy greens, whole grain breads and lean meats. Stay away from GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms), sweetened and fatty foods, as these are the foods well known to cause cancer.
