Real, Whole Food Ingredients
The greatness of healthy eating is not just that it helps you to look great and lose fat, but that it provides you with the essential nutrients you need to function at your best. Healthy foods provide a nice balance of macronutrients (fat, carbohydrates, and protein) as well as a variety of the all-important micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), both of which are best used by your body from real food (not synthetic vitamins and supplements). Having a sufficient amount of macronutrients and micronutrients will benefit you in infinite ways, but feeling your best, fighting and preventing illness and disease from the common cold to cancer, regenerating healthy cells, and supplying adequate amounts of energy are just a few of the benefits.
When you’re reading a recipe, check that the majority of ingredients are whole foods like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables (both colorful veggies and leafy greens), high-quality proteins like chicken, fish, eggs, and legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
