Choose Whole Foods!
Most of the recent nutrition goals and guidelines have had one point in common: They tend to favor a return to a more whole-food, plant based diet. The more a food resembles the original, farm-grown product, the more nutritious it is likely to be. During processing, some nutrients may be lost, and food producers often add nutrient-poor ingredients such as sugar, salt and fat. For example, a potato contains 20 milligrams of vitamin C, but the same number of calories in French fries contains only about 7 milligrams, and the same number of calories in a potato chips contains only 2 milligrams of vitamin C.
Start choosing foods such as fish, eggs, flaxseeds and chia seeds that are rich in Omega-3 Fatty acids. As well as leafy green vegetables, lentils and dried fruits which are packed with iron. Whole-grain foods are healthy because they contain fiber. A diet high in fiber can help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Whole grains, such as whole-wheat flour and brown rice, also have more fiber than refined white flour and white rice.
People who change their diet and begin to eat fewer processed foods and more whole-food, plant based products can expect many health benefits! So choose whole foods!!!!!!!
