Now I bet you didn’t know rice can actually be unhealthy! Not all rice though. White rice is very bad for you, but on the other hand, brown rice can be one of the healthiest things in your diet. It is jam-packed with nutrients which are normally scraped off white rice in order to give it the white color and smooth texture. So remember, when you’re at the store, buy the brown rice, as opposed to the white rice.
Also, one of the other products consumed often by many people on a regular basis is red meat. Shocking results show that red meat is the number one cause of cancer, after smoking and alcohol. You can still eat red meat, but not alone, eat it in proportion with a large amount of vegetables or beans. Also, don’t eat it on an everyday basis, make it more of a once in a while kind of thing.
Another item on our list of foods to avoid is white bread, white bread is a very bad thing to eat. When you consume white bread, your blood sugar rises up to very high rates. When this happens, your pancreas creates insulin to get your blood sugar down. It makes you feel tired because your blood sugar drops lower than normal, and when your blood sugar goes high, it makes you more energized. After eating too much white bread, your pancreas will get tired and weak. Therefore it won’t be able to create insulin to bring your blood sugar down, causing high blood sugar problems which can lead to many, many other problems down the road. Next time you’re thinking about going to the grocery store, pick up brown bread, instead of white bread.
Now, good food to put in your body would be things like kale. Kale is filled with calcium, vitamin K, beta carotene and vitamin C. Add it in a smoothie with other fruits, such as blueberries or strawberries, which are very good antioxidants. The good thing about adding kale to a smoothie, with other fruits, is that you won’t even taste it. It only tastes like cabbage or lettuce, and generally has a very mild taste to it. Also, eat your vegetables and/or fruits raw. Cooking them is like taking all the good properties out of them, they are most healthy raw. This is a very easy way to stay healthy. Just munch on a raw carrot or maybe just a piece of celery, any fruit or vegetable will be great for your body! When you’re on the go, grab your favourite fruit or vegetable to take with you, it’s simple, quick and easy!
