Diet and Nutrition for All
“Diet and Nutrition For All”
Our bodies should be treated as if they are sanctuaries. They are our temples after all and it’s remarkable how often we eat and ingest products that have no business entering our sacred temples. The key is always whole, organic and healthy ingredients full of nutrients and vitamins naturally!
At S.A.L.A.D. we typically follow a diet with no added sugars, low fat, no meat and low sodium content. On the flip side, we concentrate on filling up with plenty of vegetables, fruits and high-protein foods. Our favorite non-meat protein foods include nuts, seeds, tofu, spinach and sparingly, if you are not vegan, forms of dairy.
By ingesting foods that your body can easily break down, digest and distribute the nutrients, you are setting your body up for success, including your mind! By eating processed, unnatural foods, the body’s functions are slowed and we can end up feeling lethargic, cranky, sad and unable to tap into the natural energy that whole foods bestow upon us.
As for vitamins, we encourage ingesting them the natural way — not through the use of supplements, but rather by incorporating food in your diet that has the imperative vitamins your body requires naturally.
Vitamin A — Carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, kale, spinach and some spices like paprika and cayenne pepper are all high in Vitamin A which keeps hair and nails healthy along with our teeth and bones. Not only that, but Vitamin A also helps ward off viral infections.
Vitamin B — Leafy green vegetables are what it’s all about when it comes to Vitamin B, which supports brain function, prevents anemia and boosts our metabolisms. Milk and eggs are also full of Vitamin B if your diet allows.
Vitamin C — Berries, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and citrus fruits are excellent sources of Vitamin C, which protects our cells, improves iron levels and ups our immune systems.
Vitamin D — Obviously natural sunshine takes care of this one, but don’t forget about milk, eggs and mushrooms for Vitamin D intake. Vitamin D supports bone and immune system health while also lowering the risk of some cancers.
Vitamin E — A powerful antioxidant, Vitamin E can be found in sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach, bell peppers and asparagus.
Vitamin K — And finally, Vitamin K is strengthens our blood while also aiding in bone health. Stick to greens for this vitamin — kale, swiss chard, broccoli, parsley and the list goes on!
We think you’ll notice immediate results the quicker you adapt to a whole, organic and natural diet. Your energy levels will be through the roof, your body will feel leaner and stronger and of course, your mind will feel fresh and clear to tackle what lies ahead. If you already have yet to adapt a healthy diet and nutrition plan, there’s no better time to start than today. You can do it!
