I abide by the principles of nutrition and diet. For me it allows me to eat larger meals, gives me energy, but the foods have nutrient density that provide bulk without a lot of calories. And nutrient-dense foods are often among the least expensive.
We are talking about foods that offer the most nutrients per calorie and some of them are vegetables, especially the nonstarchy vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, peppers, and tomatoes. These foods are rich in phytochemicals that are thought to protect against diseases.
I know these foods can take time to prepare, because you have to peel and slice them in preparation of making a salad, but they are so much better for you than a high-fat, high-sugar dessert.
Have you ever tried a coconut chocolate blackberry pudding or a chia seed pudding, some raspberry mousse or a mango blueberry sorbet? Those are just some of the desserts you’ll enjoy throughout my 5-day renewal programs.
Our amazing body relies on at least forty nutrients found in food for life-sustaining functions. That’s how much foods factor into our genes, DNA, it is part of our very being. Also, there are other nutrients and other essential food components.
You are being asked here to supply your body with a selection of foods that supplies an appropriate amount of essential nutrients, fiber, phytochemicals and energy without excess intakes of fat, sugar, and salt.
The plan here is to always eat nutritiously and in a balanced way while making it adequate to stop craving, fulfilling, and flavorful with certain foods that are fills your body’s continuing needs.
All this is central to the principles of nutrition and diet, in achieving nutritional health. It is not only about the individual foods you choose but the way in which you combine them into your meals on a daily basis.
Nutrition is a science that can be used to create artfully, pleasing, and nourishing diet.
Look at these two breakfast that offer 500 calories each, but they differ greatly in the nutrients they provide per calorie.
Nutritious Breakfast #1: One Turkey sausage, one slice toast, one scramble eggs, a cup of cut-up strawberries and apples, a bowl of 4 thinly sliced ripe banana, with bran cornflakes with low fat milk, and cup of black coffee. You have here calcium, iron, vitamins A and C.
Breakfast #2: Two doughnuts and block cup of coffee. You have a little calcium and iron. Not very nutritious.
The trick is always think of nutrient density when planning your meals.
