Nourish your body with real nutrient dense Whole Foods. Nutrition is not about being hungry and starving yourself, limiting your calories or eating low fat alternatives. A whole food diet includes consumption of vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, beans, nuts, seeds, along with plant proteins and if you eat meat, animal proteins.
The most important part is be mindful of the quality of the foods you eat.
When your eating a whole food diet, you will naturally want less of fast foods and processed snacks and refined grains. Clean eating doesn’t mean giving up convenience. Choose minimally processed foods such as canned chickpeas, canned tomatoes, wholegrains, oats, quinoa and the list goes on. There’s always a way to find a healthy alternative to a more processed food. Eating well is about an overall pattern.
Dont deprive yourself of that weekend treat, that may be a waste of precious energy to food guilt yourself and your more likely to give up eating healthy and nutritiously with no treats. It’s all about striking a healthy balance. We all need a gooey chocolate brownie from time to time!
For example, consider what’s the best way to use and spend your precious energy daily. Imagine yourself in a desert and your in survival mode. How would you conserve your energy to make it out alive? You would be forced to ask yourself, what’s the best use of my energy! Apply that to everyday living. Rather then draining your energy trying to control things you can’t, focus on the things you can control. Remember, you are in control to make conscious food choices of what you will or won’t eat. This also applies to lifestyle.
Ultimately, SMILE and be happy with YOU and make the best use of that precious energy!!
My favourite colour is red and always has been. In Eastern cultures such as China red is the color for good luck. In Indian culture it symbolizes purity and is often used in their wedding gowns. Being the color of physical movement, the color red awakens our physical life force. Take notice of the colours your wearing daily and what they symbolise, and how they impact your mood. Each colour has a different frequency, thereby having a different effect on the body when exposed.
Wishing you a colourful, positive and healthy weekend!
