Looking for healthy food choices?
Topic: Looking for healthy food choices?
November 23, 2019 / By Delaiah Question:
I'd like to start eating more healthy. I don't live near any organic food stores or anything like that so what types of food should I eat? Are there any brands to avoid or ingredients to avoid? If so, which ones? Also if you have any websites or links that lead me to some good choices that would help too! Also what is good snack food? not pop, chips or anything like that but something actually healthy?
I'm not looking for a diet because I don't need to lose weight. Just healthier foods

Got a blender? If so, make yourself a kale smoothie each morning and add brown rice protein powder. It's vegan, and high protein, and it's got pulped cruciferous veggies in it. A great way to start the day. Take any good recipe for kale smoothie from a google search, and simply add a dose of protein powder. Just rinse your blender out fast before it starts drying or you'll have a hard time with cleanup. I honestly can't think of anything more healthy.
Another high protein choice is Tofu scramble. Fast and easy to make. I make mine with curry powder because I like curry, but that may not be breakfasty enough for some people. Check google again for recipes, but I find that scallions are the perfect "onion" type for that semi-egg flavor. you can get prechopped scallions in some fresh food stores like Whole foods sometimes, or you can prechop a buch and put them in tupperware ready to use.
Hummus wrap with chopped veggie burger is not a bad way to start the day either. Or an Amy's Burrito, she even makes breakfast burritos if you can find them. Delicious with a dab of bbq or (sweet) teriyaki sauce.
The first 3 sites are recipe sites. You can find great foods that aren't terrible for your health, and some pretty awesome recipes to try.
Also, it's important to know what foods are unhealthy for you. The middle 4 links are for lists of unhealthy foods. Some are obvious, like french fries and donuts, but some are less obvious.
There are also tons of additives and artificial ingredients in pre-packaged foods and drinks. When you can, buy fresh ingredients and make a meal from scratch. This gives you more control over what goes into your meal and gives you a chance to make sure that your fruits and vegetables are washed clean of dirt, germs, and any chemicals that lie on the surfaces. Of course, not everyone has the time, energy, or budget to make every meal from scratch, so the last 4 links provide lists of food additives to try to avoid if possible. You'd be surprised as to what *really* goes into the food you eat.
You don't have to live near an organic food store to get organic food! Some major grocery stores have begun to carry a fair amount of organic and natural foods. Check labels. Make sure that you recognize the ingredients and that there aren't 40 different ingredients for something as simple as peanut butter.

Look in the back of food products you buy and make sure they dont have hydrogen in it. Some healthy....
1.) nuts (they're actually REALLY healthy for you, especially walnuts and try to eat usalted nuts)
2.) Dried fruits
3.) Fresh fruits
6.) Cottage cheese topped on whoel grain crackers
7.) carrots, celery, and grape/cherry tomatoes
9.) Chicken salad
1.) Stuffed Tofu
2.) Chicken wraps (corn tortilla wraps with bbq sauce, chickn cutlets strips, cheese, beans, diced tomatoes and sour cream)
3.) Whole grain pasta with a HOMEMADE pasta sauce (in a blender, mix 3 cups of chopped tomatoes, 4 full basil leaves chopped, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, a few splashes of olive oil, a mint leaf (optional) and add cubed mozzarella cheese after blending. This has to be my FAVORITE meal
4.) A pizza with whole wheat crust, (if youre making the pizza, then use the sauce i just gave u) and topped with provolone and mozzarella cheese with vegetables on the top.
remember eating healthy should include meats too for protein
boiled eggs, stuffed mushrooms are good but some people dot liek mushrooms.

Japanese food and diet is the healthiest in the world. Try and add more Japanese food to your diet. The best foods are natto (fermented soy bean), tofu, nori (seaweed), miso and green tea. These are all regarded as super foods and contain powerful antioxidants with compounds that can shield you from many harmful diseases and help with weight loss.

its not junk food your body craves it is the fats - try this eat tons of green vegetables turnips collards mustard greens and nothing white. no potatoes bread sugar rice. eat small meals and snack on fresh vegetables and fruit. also try drinking one once of water for every pound you weigh. drink that water every day. no soda or sweet tea. walk 3 miles every day 11/2 miles in the morning and 11/2 miles in the evening.
if you really crave junk food try this. take one once of olive oil. the olive oil will help with the craving for junk food. it will help with the cravings for fats.
when you drink your water you can put lemon juice in the water. the lemon acts as a mild diuretic.
start a journal of the foods you eat.
no soda's coffee, tea....nothing with caffeine.
soup with clear broth is good also. eat more vegetables than you might normally do.

Well...how about a chicken item from the menu, without the sauce...a side salad, and a diet coke.
To me, would be much less harmful to your diet and still "fast food satisfying".
