Healthy Habits and Natural Nutrition

There are many benefits to re-engineering your lifestyle with healthy habits and natural nutrition. After you read this blog, be sure to create a blueprint, game plan, LIFE map, treasure map, or vision board with your new mission and vision statement.

Changing your daily lifestyle starts with a clear goal and vision for what you want and then creating a massive action plan with the key benefits and rewards as your driving force and motivation:

  • Avoid microwaving food which damages the natural nutrition of whole foods.
  • DIY meals will normally be healthier than fake, fast, and Frankenstein foods (Genetically Engineered GE) that are excessively processed, refined, and saturated with salt, sugars, synthetic stuff, syrups, and sweeteners.
  • Fast-food franchises and restaurant chains typically use the cheapest and least healthy ingredients. Then they pay big bucks on advertising and marketing programs to make it look like a good deal in order to make a nice profit for the shareholders at the expense of your health and well-being. By cutting out the middle man and buying healthy ingredients you can make satisfying, simple, and smart meals that provide natural nutrition and healthy leftovers at a lower cost.
  • Fresh fruits provide a beneficial variety of antioxidants, enzymes, fiber, minerals, phytonutrients, trace elements, and vitamins. Apples, bananas, berries, dates, figs, grapefruit, grapes, oranges, plums, and tangerines are low-cost and high-quality natural nutrition.
  • Fresh vegetables provide a beneficial variety of antioxidants, enzymes, fiber, minerals, phytonutrients, trace elements, and vitamins. Consider eating carrots, celery, cucumbers, jicama, and radish with hummus with a delicious double benefit.
  • Having a few basic appliances and tools will make preparing meals easier, faster, and more enjoyable. A good blender, ceramic pans, and pots, crockpot, food processor, and set of knives will help.
  • Making a meal in crock pots is easy and efficient. Beans, chickpeas, and lentils are examples of easy-to-prepare plant-based meals that you turn on in the morning and enjoy for supper.
  • Old fashion meals, methods, and minimalist recipes are simple and smart suggestions. Remember all the delicious and easy meals with beans, casseroles, chilies, crockpot meals, ethnic foods, leftovers, mystery meals, oatmeal, pasta, porridge, and soups you ate while growing up. This is a great way to reconnect with your family, friends, and roots
  • Smoothies and blended beverages are easy ways to boost your natural nutrition.

Satisfying, Simple, and Smart Suggestions

  • All beans, lentils, and pulses offer high-quality plant-based protein and low-cost natural nutrition.
  • Beverages at food establishments are a high-profit item. People waste significant money when they buy coffee, sodas, and teas at food establishments. Buy and make your own beverages like chai tea, coffee, green powders, green tea, hibiscus tea, and peppermint tea to save big bucks and start healthy habits.
  • Coconut oil, MCT oil, and olive oil are very filling, healthy, and nutrient-dense food. Consuming some healthy oil at the beginning of your meal will send signals to the brain that you are getting great natural nutrition so you will need fewer other foods. Avoid canola, corn, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, soy, and sunflower oils because they are highly heated, processed, refined, and treated with chemicals that damage the oil and make it unhealthy for humans.
  • Dried coconut is a great dessert and snack. Fresh coconut is a superfood that is affordable, delicious, and nutrient-dense. Coconut is one of the best bargains on the planet.
  • Dried fruit has a longer shelf life than fresh fruit so be sure to keep a variety of options handy. Consider buying dried berries, craisins, dates, prunes, and raisins.
  • Energy bars can be a healthy option if you read the ingredients carefully to avoid unhealthy ones or make them yourself. Consider coconut, dates, dried fruit, nuts, oatmeal, seeds, and vegetables (beets, carrots, pumpkin, and squash) to make healthy and natural nutrition energy bars. Dry and heat them in a dehydrator or oven to remove the excess water and then refrigerate them.
  • Fruit roll-ups are easy to make. After blending fruits you can pour a thin layer into a pan to heat in the oven at a low temperature until it dries out.
  • Gatorade replacement beverages are easy to make and help save your health and money. Consider adding a little bit of honey, maple syrup, or stevia to some blended fruits like apples, bananas, berries, grapes, kiwis, lemons, limes, oranges, or pitted plums and enjoy so delicious natural nutrition and healthy energy drink.
  • Granola bars can be healthy if you avoid high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). You can also make your own granola bars fairly easily. See the energy bar suggestion above.
  • Herbs are easy to grow and offer a wide range of health and nutritional benefits.
  • Jerky can be easy to make and offer a healthy meal or snack. Jerky can be made with beef, fish, mushrooms, venison, and wild game. By buying a side of beef, goat, or lamb or harvesting a deer or wild hog you can make dried jerky or sausage that will last for months and save money.
  • Main meals can be prepared in a crockpot with a few basic ingredients and allowed to slow cook during the day.
  • Raw nuts and seeds are nutrient-dense and offer a wide range of beneficial antioxidants, enzymes, fiber, minerals, phytonutrients, trace elements, and vitamins.
  • Smoothies and blended beverages are easy and efficient ways to prepare healthy meals and snacks.
  • Snacks, treats, and tasty desserts can be healthy habits when you choose healthy whole-food options.
  • With the holiday seasons upon us now may be the perfect time to help support your health, lifestyle, nutrition, and well-being with some new healthy habits and natural nutrition ingenuity.
