Eating only natural food and maintaining proper nutrition is not as easy as it seems. Many products contain chemical additives or non-natural preservatives. Even in some purchased vegetables and fruits.
To follow a natural diet, you need to carefully read the labels on the products. Arm yourself with knowledge and be honest with yourself about the contents of the foods you eat. Let’s figure out what you need to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and how to eat right every day that will keep you healthy.
When it’s breakfast time, wake up and stay positive about your diet. Best breakfast food: Fresh organic fruit. They’re all natural, don’t spike your blood sugar like sugary breakfasts, and provide you with plenty of nutrients and energy.
The night before, chop up a large portion of apples, peaches, pears, strawberries, and blueberries to make enough for breakfast. For variety, you can buy natural or organic cereal. A serving of cereal with a handful of raw almonds and a couple of tablespoons of organic low-fat yogurt makes for a hearty and energizing breakfast.
If you prefer meat and eggs in the morning, you can eat them, but only those that are grown at home without chemicals. It is also recommended to eat them in small portions. Too much meat causes fatigue, as the body spends more energy processing protein.
For lunch, eat a natural sandwich and salad. To do this, you need to find organic bread without artificial sweeteners and additives. Home-grown chicken or beef and organic cheese make a great addition to your sandwich. For a change, buy peanut butter, but also natural.
You can make any salad, since almost all vegetables are organic. Start with lettuce and add carrots, tomatoes, beets, onions, broccoli, or any other vegetables you like. This way you keep proper nutrition.
Instead of unhealthy mayonnaise and other dressings, season your salad with apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. If you still want a different flavored dressing, look for a natural sauce that suits your taste requirements. If sandwiches aren’t your thing, try salmon or organic spaghetti with vegetables for lunch.
Choose among a large number of delicious snacks that you like. In a natural diet, snacks play an important role: they help you wait until the next meal and refrain from eating unnatural food. This is one of the principles that go into proper nutrition. Raw nuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and protein. Eat a handful of almonds or walnuts with natural raw honey.
In stores, you can also find natural muesli bars that will help satisfy your hunger. If you haven’t finished your meal at lunch or breakfast, you can save some for later so you can eat later. With such a diet, hunger is inevitable, so you should always have organic food on hand.
Enjoy meat, potatoes, or vegetables of your choice for dinner, as long as you are sure the meat is grass-fed. Season the potatoes with fresh herbs, not butter, and steam the vegetables only lightly. Organic meat does not contain the chemical antibiotics found in “regular” meat.
Potatoes with fresh herbs taste great, and fresh herbs add vitamins and minerals not found in dried herbs. Light heat treatment will allow vegetables to retain a large amount of nutrients that will be lost during intensive cooking or frying.
Experiment with different organic and natural products to create a menu of dishes that you like. Follow this diet for as long as you want – this is universal proper nutrition.
