Eating well can be confusing. There are so many diets out there that seem to contradict each other, and there seems to be advice coming from just about everyone on what’s best to eat. If you put all of these ideas and diets together, there appear to be some basic foundations that we can all live by in order to be more healthy and more vibrant. Here are three dietary choices you can make that can put you on the road to better health.
Cut Back the Carbs
Carbs are great, but in moderation. When we have too many carbs, our sugar spikes and we can become diabetic. Carbs are also heavy and can cause us to be sluggish, tired, and unmotivated. Certain diets like the keto diet reduce carbs in your daily eating routine. There are several recipes out there in the keto world that will allow you to still enjoy your favorite carbohydrate rich foods without actually having the carbs. Replacements like cauliflower create the same taste and flavor profile that other carbs or starches create. Try this low carb Fathead pizza dough recipe the next time you crave pizza. There are other great recipes that you can find on the internet as well.
Reduce Red Meat
Too much red meat can cause a lot of problems with your body. From heart disease to gout and digestive problems, red meat should only be eaten rarely. It is recommended to eat red meat only once a month in order to keep a healthy diet. There are a lot of red meat alternatives like Impossible Meat that tastes just like meat, but is actually plant based. Plant based meat alternatives are great for your digestion and they won’t make you feel as tired as red meat does when it is consumed in large quantities. Save the real thing for special occasions so that you can truly savor the flavor. In the meantime, try other proteins and replacements.
Detox With Water
Half your body weight in ounces of water is a goal. Water is a natural detoxifier by cleansing your body off all its waste. Add some citrus to your water to magnify the cleansing power.
We hope these 3 simple steps will help you on the road to better health.
