It is important to eat a balanced diet in which you get the nutrition you need while also enjoying yourself. There are so many competing ideas about what it means to eat healthy, but some things are certain:
- Nuts are healthy, nutritious, and full of good fats that help fuel our brains and bodies.
- Too much sugar takes a toll on the body because we are not able to process a lot of the sweet stuff; thus, it ends up wreaking havoc by causing inflammation and stomach upset as it becomes toxic (just like anything else. If we ate meat and could not process it and eliminate the waste, it would also cause problems).
- Veggies and fruits should be a mainstay of any nutritious eating plan.
- Protein is an essential building block for your body and brain! Whether you prefer veggies beans and nuts, or fish, chicken and lean meat, there are lots of interesting ways to get protein into your day!
Breakfast is the most important meal you eat! It gets your metabolism moving and sets the tone for the rest of the day. Having a mixture of fat, protein and carbohydrates is a great morning goal, and what better way to do it than with some healthy, tasty pancakes! These are not your typical pancakes though – they have 5 nutritious ingredients and are both sugar and gluten free. With nut butter, eggs, yogurt, vanilla, and a touch of honey, you will be both happy and fulfilled! Have a great day!
