Nutrition : Inverted values
Many people have a wrong idea of what it is to be healthy.
When someone says, “I am healthy” or “I’m eating a more balanced diet, dieting,” most of them think in deprivation, starvation, a lettuce leaf, or a pea.
When they think of hamburgers, cakes, snacks, hot dogs and pizza, their eyes fill up, but they don’t react the same way when they look at a fruit.
These are the inverted values in nutrition.
What is good became bad and what is bad became good, have you noticed that? It looks like I’ve seen this story in another part of life, isn’t it so?
And then many do not know why they do not feel good about themselves.
Every time I eat a plate of salad, vegetables, fruit, I see health. And that’s how I chose to see the goodness that it really brings me! In fact, I see God’s creation, because everything we would need in order to survive, He created in nature.
Vegetables and fruits are very rich in several vitamins, nutrients and minerals that our body very much needs; each one with different nutrients that help our body to function and release strength and energy to live.
This does not mean that you will never again eat some candy or something you want, no, but you will be balanced and will do it only sporadically.
Learn to “listen” to your body. The well-being, vitality, or the lack thereof, tiredness, moodiness, skin, hair and weak nails, are small signs that your nutrition needs to improve.
So, may one of your resolutions for 2015 be to nourish yourself and take better care of your body. After all, apart from our looks, we are the true temple of God in this world.
Choose to do what is good for you.
