Simply is healthy

Today we have been tended to complicate our lives too much and it has no differences with nutrition also. Why is it so difficult to understand, what is a healthy nutrition? Why are we the only kind of animals who are racking our brains with proper nutrition? Wolf doesn’t have a problem to figure out what is for him a proper nutrition. Birds also. Why are we so special, that in the thousands of books is written about proper nutrition, but despite of that, humanity is still sicker and more obese.

Media afraid us with deficiencies of vitamins and minerals, while simultaneously bombard us with advertisements for what could be hardly called food. In principle, the rule is that the real food is generally not advertised! So, the ‘food producers’ simply compete, to convince us that it is not so, constantly inventing a new systems of labeling like ‘healthy food’, ‘no sugar’, with ‘0% fat’, ‘enriched with fiber’, ‘enriched with vitamins’.

When you read something of that, be assured that it is not the real food, because something is taken away or added to it. The real food doesn’t have any bombastic labels; in fact it is not even packed usually. So, if you eat enough of that food, it will satisfy all your needs, without adding or subtracting anything. Healthy food is the same as simple food, that everyone knows how to prepare. You don’t need any special counseling, blood analysis or apparatus.

Here is, for example: steamed or bake a pound of potatoes without oil, spice it with a little sea salt and a spoon of butter.

It is important to know, what is the real food. It includes: fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and eggs. It also can included cereals, legumes and dairy products. Although these groceries have some disadvantages, such as phytates in grains and legumes or lactose in milk, many authorities in terms of nutrition have shown that by certain procedures these groceries can be also healthy food. Phytate from whole grains and legumes can be removed by soaking before cooking or if we eat only natural unleavened bread. Old cheese, such as Emmental often contain a little or no lactose, affecting by useful cheese culture and it provides a good source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.

What in our nutrition doesn’t need to be found is before of all, industrial food such as carbonated drinks, caned food, nibbles or biscuits. Also oil from the seeds should be removed and used coconut oil for cooking and a small amount of olive oil for salads, just so we can avoid too much of omega-6 fatty acids in the nutrition. Nuts and seeds should be eaten sparingly, because if you’re in nature and if you have to collect them or peel, how would you manage to peel them in one day?

Back To The Basics – Yin And Yang Groceries

It is very important to listen to your body’s needs.  So, for example, if you need some water u will take it or if you feel exhausted u will take some vitamins. But what I suggest to you is that you need to take enough water,  more fruits and vegetables as well as natural juices, because it is primarily basic food!

Fruits and Vegitables

It is necessary to harmonize the balance in the body and it is recommended that the daily intake is at least 60% of the basic foods in order to neutralize the acidity in the organism.

Rights basic nutrition means nutrition of fruitage as they are in the nature.

All the groceries that we take to ourselves changing the pH value of our blood. Our body tends to be in equilibrium and for this it is necessary that the blood is slightly basic.Different groceries have a different pH values and affect the level of alkalinity or acidity in the body.If we introduced too many acidic foods the body is unable to neutralize them, and they are deposited as a hazardous waste and pollute the body.

There are tables where you can exactly determine which food is acidic and which are base, and that on the basis of them you can establish a balance. What is important is that if you eat acidic foodstuffs, you must ensure that in nutrition you introduce groceries that your body will lead to the necessary balance.

Lemon vs. sugar!

Lemon is an excellent example of alkalinizational though it tastes sour, while on the other side sugar creates an extremely acidic environment.

In order to have a clearer picture of it I will point out to you some nutritional support groups in the intensity of the base and acid reaction.

Strong base reaction (yang) includes:                      

  • celery
  • figs
  • Herbal Teas
  • melon
  • watermelon
  • lemon
  • mango

  • orange
  • Sesame seeds

 

Neutral foods:

  • Cow’s milk
  • yogurt
  • whey
  • butter
  • Oil (except for olive)

 

Slightly acidic reaction (yin):

 

  • eggs
  • Red beans
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • barley

 

Moderately acid reaction (yin):

 

  • Honey (pasteurized)
  • bran
  • cheeses
  • dry coconut
  • fish

  • dry legumes (except soy)
  • Nuts (except almonds)
  • rye
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • plum
  • popcorn
  • Potatoes (peeled)
  • Prunes
  • rice

 

Strongly acidic (yin):

 

  • White bread
  • Rolls and cakes from white flour

  • pork
  • chicken
  • fish
  • Refined grains
  • cranberries

Now on the basis of this you can see how properly you can combine groceries.To reiterate,  You should take as much as possible raw food and that is fresh fruit and vegetables.

In accordance to a soul, each of us can choose how we will work on ourselves.Why is the food so important and can it really affect on our lives in several important levels? In some way it is logical that we generally start from food when we try to bring some changes in our life. Everything we eat and the way we eat affects on our physical as well as on the mental and emotional level.
