It’s only a full plate if you pile on the antioxidants, the fiber, and the super foods like blueberries and broccoli.
Forget the high calories, fat, sugar and salt.
That was the message today at an event I attended where some super doc’s spoke to a room full of mostly women about super foods, staying healthy in body and mind; yes what goes into your stomach feeds your brain too, and pushes back on things like cancer, heart attack, diabetes, and high blood pressure.
This was a no nonsense morning on healthy living.
I think most of us, these days, try to eat better. No one wants to invite cancer or hearth trouble into their body on purpose. But that’s what we do when we consume big amounts of sugar and salt in our diets. Studies have shown we flirt with these issues if we don’t watch what we eat and there’s this little thing called exercise and proper rest that factor into our health status too.
If it grows from a plant, it’s probably good for you, but if it comes from a plant, it probably isn’t….Fresh healthy foods versus processed food from a package…In a nut shell, that’s the way the dietician summed up healthy eating vs. not so healthy eating and that translates in a healthy body.
Of course genetics factor into this equation too. We can only do so much where that’s concerned.
So pile on the kale, berries, salmon and broccoli and do it with a smile on your face!
