Healthy Diet! — Fill’er Up With Premium, Please!

As you all know by now, the aim of this blog is to learn to cook and eat traditional wholesome real food the way nature intended.

The food you eat contributes a great deal to your health and well being.

Eating a healthy diet that is loaded with the nutrition your body needs, and will help prevent sickness.

I believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: literally.

One of the problems we face today is the consumption of fast and convenient food, that is full of fillers, chemical preservatives, sugar, trans fats, sodium, and a lot of artificial flavors and colors. These foods will eventually make us sick and are not condusive to maintaining a healthy diet.

Then of course, conventional medicine has a plethora of drugs to offer us when we do get sick. When you watch TV these days, practically every commercial is trying to sell you some kind of drug to treat what ails you. Notice how I didn’t say “cure?” That’s because the drugs advertised on the market today only treat the symptoms and temporarily alleviate them to make you feel better or maybe even feel worse, considering all the side effects that are associated with many of them.  Oh, and rest assured there are medications to deal with those side effects too.  It’s a never ending cycle.

My answer to all of this is, instead of living on drugs, why not live on good wholesome food to fill ourselves up with the nutrients our bodies need so that we don’t get sick and won’t have to take drugs.

Maintaining a Healthy Diet

For example, if your new car requires you to put only premium fuel in it or the engine might falter, you would do it, right? If for nothing else, you’d do it to save yourself a costly engine replacement, right?

Well, why not put premium fuel in your body? Aren’t you more worth it than your car? Think of it this way. Your car is running on, let’s say…filet mignon and you’re running on burgers and fries? Now you tell me what’s wrong with that picture?


Eating a healthy diet consisting of fresh meats, veggies, fruits, healthy fats and probiotics can prevent disease and can serve to prevent conditions that lead to disease, such as obesity.  So, give up the fast food, processed food, food that comes in a box, etc.  and cook from scratch and eat fresh.  I know that with the way inflation is now, good healthy food is expensive, especially meat.  But by eating foods that provide your body with the nourishment it needs, you won’t be as hungry.  The chemicals in processed foods make you addicted so that you keep wanting more.  Also, your body isn’t getting all the nutrients it needs so it keeps making you want more.  If you replace all the processed junk with nourishing food, you won’t be as humgry, because your body is getting all it needs.   Therefore, you’ll eat less and therefore, spend less.

Also, as far as meat, one portion should be about the size of a deck of cards.  So that steak that you ordered at the restaurant that’s hanging off the sides of your plate is enough for 2 or maybe even 3 meals.  Buy yourself a steak like that at the grocery store and cut it up into portions for each meal.  Freeze them and just cook them when you need them.  You’ll get at least 2 meals, maybe more, from that one steak.  Supplement each portion of steak with a lot of veggies.  Consume more vegetables, either cooked or raw in a salad.  Raw is the best, because some nutrients are destroyed by heat when veggies are cooked.   For a snack, instead of grabbing a bag of chips, grab some crunchy veggies, like broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, carrots, etc…and munch on those for a snack.  The benefits far outweigh what you get from a bag of chips.

That’s it for now. If any of you would like to add your comments, feel free to do so, or just drop me an email.
