Healthy Eating Tips

No healthy eating tips information can not make mention of fruits and vegetables.

Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that may help protect you from chronic diseases.

If you compare people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables to those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet, the fruit and vegetable eaters are likely to have reduced risk of chronic diseases, including stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers.

To get a healthy variety, think color. Eating fruits and vegetables of different colors gives your body a wide range of needed valuable nutrients, like fiber, folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C.

Some examples of the great variety include green spinach, orange sweet potatoes, black beans, yellow corn, purple plums, red watermelon, and white onions. For more variety, try new fruits and vegetables regularly.

Eating a also includes eating plenty of starchy foods such as wholegrain bread, pasta and rice, some protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs and lentils and some dairy foods. Preferably it should also be low in fat (especially saturated fat), salt and sugar.

Aim for at least two portions of fish each week, including a portion of oily fish. You can choose from fresh, frozen or canned - but remember that canned and smoked fish can be high in salt.

This probably goes without saying but try to eat fewer foods containing added sugar, such as sweets, cakes and biscuits, and drinking fewer sugary soft and fizzy drinks.

Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. It has been proven that people with high blood pressure are three times more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke than people with normal blood pressure.

Try to drink about 6 to 8 glasses of water, or other fluids, every day to stop from getting dehydrated.

Consider adding brown rice and whole wheat pasta to your diet. These are very good sources of fiber.

These healthy eating tips should be a must for all of us.

My wife was a diabetic for over 40 years until she received a pancreas transplant recently. Healthy food has always been something we strived for and, of course, our menu had to be planned around her needs.
