The Complete Guide to Eating Healthy
The Complete Guide To Eating Healthy is a blog post that talks about everything you need to know about eating healthy. It includes what foods are the best for your body, how to cook them, and how you should prepare your meals. This guide will teach you the basics of cooking healthy food so that you can start living a healthier lifestyle today!
One of the most important things you need to know about eating healthy is that it’s not all about counting calories. In fact, if you focus too much on counting calories, you might end up eating unhealthy foods that are low in nutrients but high in calories. Instead, try to focus on eating whole, natural foods that are packed with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.
Some of the best foods for your body include fruits, vegetables, lean protein sources, and unrefined carbohydrates like oatmeal and quinoa. These foods provide your body with the energy and nutrients it needs to stay healthy and function properly. Plus, they’re all relatively easy to cook – so there’s no excuse not to include them in your diet!
One of the best ways to ensure that you’re eating healthy is to cook your own meals. This way, you can control what goes into your food and how it’s prepared. Plus, cooking at home is often much cheaper than eating out at restaurants.
There are plenty of healthy recipes available online, so be sure to do some research before getting started. Here are a few of our favorites:
Omelet with vegetables: Start by heating a small amount of oil in a pan over medium heat. Add your desired vegetables and cook until they’re soft, about five minutes. Whisk together two eggs and pour them into the pan. Cook until the eggs are set and then serve immediately.
Salmon with roasted vegetables: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the salmon filets on top. Spread your desired vegetables around the salmon filets and drizzle with olive oil or melted butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
Chicken stir fry: Start by cutting your chicken into thin strips. Heat a small amount of oil in a wok or large pan over medium-high heat and cook the chicken until it’s no longer pink about three minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside. Add additional coconut amino, ginger root, garlic cloves, red pepper flakes (optional), mushrooms, broccoli florets, green peppers (julienned), carrots (julienned), bok choy to the same pan with some sesame seeds for added flavor; sauté vegetables until tender but still crisp – this may take up to ten minutes if you are using hardier veggies like carrots; push everything on one side of your pan and add a beaten egg to the other side, scramble until cooked; return chicken and all other ingredients to the pan and toss everything together.
Quinoa salad: Cook one cup of quinoa according to package instructions. Once it’s cooled, mix in ¼ diced red onion, ½ diced cucumber, ⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley leaves, the juice of ½ lemon, and two tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
Black bean brownies: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an eight-inch baking dish with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. In a food processor, combine one can of black beans (rinsed and drained), three tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, two tablespoons coconut oil (melted), one tablespoon pure vanilla extract, one teaspoon ground flax seed mixed with three tablespoons of water to create a “flax egg”, ½ cup maple syrup or agave nectar, ¼ cup almond meal/flour, ¼ teaspoon baking soda and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Blend until smooth; pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes then let cool completely before cutting into squares.
