Balance Your Meals

Balance is the key to eating properly by eating a wide range of foods in the right proportions. Achieving the balance can be tedious when one is stressed living a hectic lifestyle. Making your health and eating regime a number one priority will need commitment in finding the time, discipline and prep work in following a routine to go health food shopping, find time to plan meals and make them.

There are five key food groups to choose from to balance your meals:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Protein: Meats, fish, egg, beans, poultry, nuts, seeds, black bean, mung, legumes
  • Grains: gluten-free preferable such as brown rice, quinoa, sorghum
  • Foods containing fats Alternative non-dairy products for cheese, milk, yogurt, butter or organic dairy products

The real problem comes with an imbalance of eating and consuming too many foods from one food group. Many people are eating too much sugar and unhealthy fats, and this is one way to accelerate the aging factor on the road to disease and health ailments.  Obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, chronic inflammation and certain cancers are at risk with this type of eating.

What’s your dietary preference and how would you classify yourself ?

  • Protein lover
  • Carbohydrate Craver
  • Veggie energizer
  • Fruit lover
  • Cheese lover
  • Paleo
  • Vegetarian
  • Omnivore
  • Gluten-Free
  • Dairy-Free
  • GFCF

Identifying your eating patterns can lead to setting yourself up for success with some manageable steps.

Start slow and make changes to balance your ratio of incorporating foods from each group. Think of your diet in terms of rainbow colors and add variety to include foods from each color of that rainbow. Focus on how you feel after eating your meals and realize every healthy change will positively affect your overall health. Keep your eye on the long term health benefits along the daily journey. You must enjoy feeling more energized, having mental clarity and feeling great!
