While I’m off gallivanting and taking in the CHFA West in the beautiful city that is Vancouver; I thought I would be remiss to leave you with nothing to whet your natural health appetites. So I’ve lined up some guest posts, to keep you entertained.
Everybody wants to have a healthy and vitalized life. However, it’s one thing to want it and another thing to actually live it. Having a life full of energy and vigor doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time and effort; but it’s not hard to do! Here are the basics to leading a vitalized life.
You are what you eat!
We all have a certain diet; by diet, we basically mean our food intake. People opt for different types of diets such as vegetarian, protein-rich, carbohydrate free- you name it; however, having a balanced diet is one of the best ways to achieve a vitalized life. This means that you get to eat everything, within reason.
Our bodies needs all the nutrients it can get from grains, vegetables, fruits, oils, dairy, and meat; it simply boils down to the right ratio of each food group. There is no golden diet plan that applies to everyone; each person has a different nutritional needs. You may follow the food pyramid and determine—based on your current diet—what food group you need to increase or decrease your intake to make it healthier and more balanced.
Making incremental changes like eating more fruits and veggies over the next seven days can exact significant changes to how one feels. But be sure to start small; it’s easier to sustain dietary changes with mindful baby steps. rather than with giant diet leaps.
