Good Healthy Food And Its Advantages

The benefit of a good, healthy diet is that it provides your body with the nutrients it needs to function efficiently. This relieves a lot of stress, stops food cravings and prevents illness.

The standard Western diet consists of about 50% processed foods and 40% animal protein. Cooking animal protein changes the protein, making it harder to digest, absorb, and excrete. Animal protein does not contain a wide variety of complex nutrients.

This leaves only 10% or less real food. It’s impossible for your body to function well if only 10% is nutrient dense food.

Not only is it impossible, it also keeps you hungry all the time, increasing the chance of a snack. This inevitably leads to weight gain.

Cruciferous vegetables are among the most complete foods there is. They belong to the Brassicaceae plant family and include root vegetables, leafy vegetables and flowers. The most common are broccoli, kale, collards, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, arugula, watercress, horseradish, collards, turnip greens, turnip greens, radishes, radishes, bok choy, bok choy, Swiss chard, rapini, wasabi, and rutabagas.

They are rich in fiber, macro minerals, trace elements, vitamins, proteins and omega-3 fatty acids, phytochemicals and antioxidants.

The green family members are particularly healthy. The cruciferous vegetables all have a slightly spicy or pungent aroma and/or a slightly spicy taste. This comes from the sulfur-containing compound sulfaphane.

Sulfaphane is known for:

  • protect cellular enzyme activity
  • induce destruction of cancer cells
  • targets cancer stem cells
  • heals the blood-brain barrier
  • reduces chronic inflammation

It is interesting that this is the favorite vegetable for fermenting, which enhances the healing abilities of the vegetable.

The benefits of a regular supply of this vegetable include:

  • elimination of heavy metals
  • Neutralization of harmful chemicals

This is reassuring in today’s age of high toxicity, toxins, chemicals and environmental degradation.

The best way to eat well and healthily is to eat them fresh and raw if possible. Growing your own vegetables can ensure the freshest supply.

Eating it raw can be challenging. It’s often an acquired taste. But here’s a recipe that may tickle your taste buds.

Combine freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice. Let the chopped kale marinate in it overnight.

Healthy, delicious!
