One of the pillars of good health is eating natural foods. Organically grown whole foods and super foods are the essential selections for eating wisely and building health.
Protein, carbohydrates, fats and fiber are emphasized by diet authorities, with warnings about salt, fats and cholesterol.
Conventional thinking focuses on the “balanced diet” food groups of proteins (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds, beans, peas), dairy, grains, fruits and vegetables. Few people have been well taught in their upbringing about even this degree of consideration about what to eat.
Vitamins, minerals, enzymes, pigments, phytonutrients and antioxidants are given minimal attention. Is it assumed that all these will be present in commercial food at the supermarket? Even the store fruits and vegetables rarely contain adequate quantities of these needed nutrients.
Antioxidants, special nutrient compounds that counter damaging free radicals, are needed daily.
Deficiency of minerals is common due to chemical agriculture. These building blocks of almost everything are essential to the health of living organisms. Minerals are normally restored to soil with organic farming. Choose organically grown foods whenever possible.
Super foods and herbs are very important to be added to the diet for the minerals and phytonutrient compounds they provide. Please visit ReallyWell.com for outstanding natural health information and products.
