One should not compromise with the health. In today’s world, full of junk foods, you should know what to eat and in what you should invest your money because as they truly say “You are what you eat”. Maintaining health in the long-term needs should be a top priority. You need to give a serious thought what you’re taking in the name of food.
There are some simple tips and tricks which if you apply in your daily routine you can maintain a long term healthy and happy life. I am trying these following few practices and thought of sharing these with you all.
- Try to have Oatmeal instead of Cereal. Oatmeal is one of the best foods to eat at the start of your day. It’s a slow-digesting carbohydrate, provides a high source of dietary fiber and contains a small amount of protein with hardly any sugar at all.
- You need protein to maintain your health. One of the best sources to get this protein is lean Chicken Breasts. But don’t worry if you are a veggies! Soybean is an extremely good source of protein and it offers a large variety of products for you to choose from. It contains all the essential amino acids and surpasses all other food plants in the amount of protein that it can deliver to the human system. In this regard, it is nearly equal to meat.
- Okay. If you are a fan of fruit jam then try to avoid it because it is high in sugar content which is not very good for your health. A good replacement is natural Peanut Butter. Natural peanut butter is a versatile source of healthy fats.
- Skip pasta. This is a highly carbohydrate laden food and for pasta lovers it’s very easy to over eat and gain unwanted fats. Instead of pasta go for Brown Rice. It digests slowly and can be eaten with a wide variety of meals.
- Cottage Cheese is a very good source for calcium and protein. If you like diary product then it’s better to have Cottage Cheese rather than yoghurt. Yoghurt is lower in protein and higher in carbohydrate compare to Cottage Cheese.
This is of course my personal suggestions. You should follow your diet rules after consulting your family doctor.
