what are healthy amounts of everything you need for your body?
everything. i will be going shopping in a little and would like to switch up my grocery list to healthy foods.
It doesn’t really matter. Various cultures have shown that there is more than one type of healthy diet (high-carb + low-fat, or the opposite, or high-protein low-carb, etc). The only thing that really matters is that you eat actual food, as opposed to processed food. This means vegetables, fruits, whole grains (100% whole, meaning nothing like “modified corn starch” listed in the ingredients), nuts, beans, brown rice, eggs. Whereas processed foods are things like white bread, white rice, ramen noodles, cheerios (and all cereals found in a regular store), canned soup, TV dinners, snacks, basically the vast majority of items in the grocery store are things you wanna avoid.
Why are good tasting foods so bad for us?
Now I know some of you enjoy some “healthy foods“,but I am talking about sweets and greasy fatty foods, you know all the food we want but probably shouldn’t eat.
#2 hydrogenated oils
#3 bad fats
the list goes on
Help me with a grocery store list that is simple and lazy and healthy?
I live alone and I want to see if I can do simple, lazy and healthy food shopping and food prep and eating. About the most I “cook” is to hard boil eggs. But I do own a skillet and several pans and a microwave. I am lactose intolerant and have GERD so milk and tomato products are out. Looking for a shopping list for about 7 days and I have some basics already here. I am trying to eat better thanks in advance.
I don’t know how simple this would be in practice, but shouldnt require too much thinking… Choose a variety of foods that reflect the food pyramid, stay away from refined ie white anything (bread, pasta, rice, sugar, and in your case milk is in there jejje), and try and buy foods as close to their natural state as possible, ie: fresh fruit and veg instead of canned or in a pop tart, steak or fish or chicken raw and cook it yourself, even if just grilled and not ham, lunchmeat, etc, avoid prepackaged foods with sauces or read the ingredients on the label to be sure whats in them. Oh! And an easy way of getting your veg and fruit is by having it delivered to your door each week or fortnight. It’s sometimes even cheaper than going to the store.
What would be good and healthy to plant inside or on a balcony in March/April?
What should I plant? Healthy foods. In Western Canada.
What are some healthy fruits/veggies/herbs that I could plant either inside on on a balcony in early to mid-March? And also what is the best way to get organic Non-GMO seeds?
Look for heirloom seeds wherever you shop, a quick google should pull up plenty online .. You could do alot in containers with partial shade such as on a balcony, many herbs and most greens and root crops should do ok, peppers, oregano, onions, if you have about 6 good hours of sun the list can be long the more sun the better though as a rule of thumb, just realize alot of things can get BIG … Use some good soil in your pots and the largest pots you can handle will work out better .. Some time release fertilizer will work good for a strict potted garden, something like osmocote available at ace works well, mix it in with your soil before putting it in the pot ….
What is the best vegan book?
It would be nice if it included information, how to be healthy, food list, recipes, meal ideas, statistics, scientific research, history, etc.
Becoming Vegan. Like someone else said. It includes pretty much evertyhing you mentioned. Lost of graphs and statistics. Too much nitty gritty health info for me.
I also have “Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, And wear cows” not with everything you are looking for, but interesting.
A vegan is someone who does not consume any animal products. This includes meat, dairy, eggs, honey, and animal byproducts (gelatin, whey, casein, rennet.) In addition with not consuming animal products, they do not buy any clothing articles that are made from animals, buy any animal tested products or products with animal ingredients, and they do not support places which make money off of animal exploitation, such as Rodeos, SeaWorld, Zoos, etc. This is a philosophy/lifestyle not a fad diet. In 1951, the British Vegan Society, the first vegan society, explained the definition of veganism as “ the doctrine that man should live without exploiting animals,”
If you want a REALLY amazing speech on veganism. You must watch “The best speech you will ever hear” on youtube. I’m serious, it’s fantastic.
