Essential health and weight loss facts…

If there’s only one thing you get out of this article, remember and stay mindful of this: It is essential you pay attention to the amount of salt, sugar and oil in the food you eat.

Furthermore, the only way I know of to have any control over it whatsoever is to prepare, cook and eat your own plant based whole food. This way, you know for sure there’s nothing added to it.

‘Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart disease, including heart attack and stroke [1 choosemyplate.gov]’.

But, we have to know which plant foods are the healthiest to eat. This means, it’s better to buy organic and non-GMO fruits and vegetables. There are those you don’t necessarily have to buy organic because they aren’t sprayed with bug sprays.
Don’t have to buy these organic…

  • Pineapples
  • Onions
  • Avocado
  • Asparagus
  • Peas
  • Mangoes
  • Eggplant
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cabbage
  • Mushrooms

Buy these organic…

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Spinach
  • Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Grapes
  • Bell peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Lettuce
  • Kale

Things to bear in mind if you want to stay healthy and lose weight

  • Kale (buy organic) is the most nutritious leafy green you can eat so, steam some with broccoli
  • Strawberries are the best berry (eat these organic)
  • Dairy and all animal products are the worst to eat (none of these)
  • Avoid sugar, salt and oils (no snack or junk foods or processed and refined)
  • Make sure you eat a green salad, beans or lentils, brown rice or basmati, and/or potatoes every day (make your own no oil salad dressings)
  • Eat a small handful of nuts and seeds (get roasted and organic)
  • Use onions and mushrooms in your cooking to make your meals more enjoyable and nutritious
  • Go to recipes
