A Balanced Meal Leads To Proper Nutrition

Food is a very important part of our life. It helps us function everyday and it also keeps the body healthy. It is very important to eat healthy foods, especially in our current time that the health risk all over the world is growing. A balanced meal can help you get the right nutrition for your body. Food does not only satisfy hunger but it also provides essential nutrients that are needed to nurture and repair damaged cells. It helps the body recover from an injury and prevents potential health risks. Exercise a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced meal.

With a healthy and balanced eating plan that helps you manage your weight includes a variety of foods you may not have considered. If "healthy eating" makes you think about the foods you can't have, try refocusing on all the new foods you can eat:

  • Fresh fruits ― don't think just apples or bananas. All fresh fruits are great choices. Be sure to try some "exotic" fruits, too. How about a mango? Or a juicy pineapple or kiwi fruit! When your favorite fresh fruits aren't in season, try a frozen, canned, or dried variety of a fresh fruit you enjoy. One caution about canned fruits is that they may contain added sugars or syrups. Be sure and choose canned varieties of fruit packed in water or in their own juice.
  • Fresh vegetables ― try something new. You may find that you love grilled vegetables or steamed vegetables with an herb you haven't tried like rosemary. You can sauté (panfry) vegetables in a non-stick pan with a small amount of cooking spray. Or try frozen or canned vegetables for a quick side dish — just microwave and serve. When trying canned vegetables, look for vegetables without added salt, butter, or cream sauces.
  • Calcium-rich foods ― you may automatically think of a glass of low-fat or fat-free milk when someone says "eat more dairy products." But what about low-fat and fat-free yogurts without added sugars? These come in a wide variety of flavors and can be a great dessert substitute for those with a sweet tooth.
