How you can kickstart the healthier lifestyle:
Healthy living is simple but it is portrayed as something very complex. Here are two simple steps that would make a big difference:
1. Understand micronutrients: This is a word you might’ve heard a lot, but do you really understand want it means? Micronutrients are your vitamins and minerals. They not only nourish your cells, but also clean and remove the waste and help them resist diseases. Without micronutrients, our cells are weakened. Our bodies need micronutrients to function at its best. Eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables to to benefit from a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
Where are they found? Plant-based food like: fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and beans.
2. Make the switch to whole foods Food in its purest form; unprocessed and unrefined. Rely on food in its natural state, rather than bits that remain after processing that have lost vitamins, minerals and nutrients. The more whole foods you consume, the less additives, colors, fats, preservatives, chemicals, sodium and sugar you’re exposed to.
