Boost Your Energy With Fresh Foods

raw-foods-300x225Fresh whole foods are top of the line when it comes to nutrition, digestibility and optimal health!

And . . . Green vegetables are nutrient dense, water rich, and naturally low in calories.

You might agree on an intellectual level that eating raw foods is a good idea and will nourish your body better than cooked processed foods.

But does the thought of abandoning a lifetime of eating habits for the sake of what seems like a good idea seem like more than you can do?

For many it is. So don’t!

Don’t think of restricting yourself to “rabbit food”.

That’s silly and the surest way to guarantee you won’t even give whole food a fighting chance.

Mistakes will be made. Adjustments will be sometimes difficult.

But, do “Everything in moderation”, and we think that applies to even the healthiest notions. It’s guaranteed not healthy if you won’t do it!

We think if you add in things like raw vegetables, sprouts, fruits and juices gradually, you won’t be as hungry. When you’re not hungry, you won’t be as apt to give into impulsive eating or overeating.

Once you notice how good you feel and how much more energy you have, those junk foods just won’t look as good to you. This is a fact. We have seen this time after time.

You’ll need to do a little research into which foods have the essential proteins, or what combinations of food you need to eat to get enough protein. Or just add in some meats and fish from time to time and ensure that you get the nutrients you need.

One way to ensure that you are getting enough nutrients and lots of variety is to incorporate a new vegetable every week. Buy something you have never heard of, like a “leek”, or “swiss chard.” Try something different with it.

You will find a whole new world of tastes and textures open up to you. You will find you have more energy and better health because of it. Go for it, try adding more fresh foods to your diet and see the difference it makes to your day.
