Eating The Right Way

Clean eating is a very controversial subject with many people. In the article that I read they are trying to say that you might as well become a vegan with the minimal items that you are allowed to eat. That is not at all true. When you begin a clean eating diet, they have you start out by doing a cleanse and flushing your body of all the toxins that may be built up in your body making it hard for you to lose weight and to become more healthy. But once you are done with the one or two day clease you can basically eat any fruits you want in moderation and any vegetables that you want. You also are aloud to eat white meats and fish. And if I am right vegans aren’t allowed to eat any of those things. White meats consist of chicken, and turkey. And if you feel the need to eat red meat, make sure that it is extra lean.

One thing about this article that they say that I believe is true is that sometimes by entering into a clean eating lifestyle and habit, you can sometimes eliminate the possibility of having to take medications for illnesses. Say, you have high blood pressure as mentioned, you could just start eating a little bit more healthy and over time your body could get use to the way that you have been eating and your blood pressure could start to gradually decrease over that time.

So, in my opinion clean eating is something that is good for your body. I don’t see where it is harmful to your body, or even where it is like being a vegan. You basically have free range to eat whatever you want as long as you do it in moderation and don’t go over the top with unhealthy items.

Better Your Eating Habits By Reading This Info-graphic

infographic.pngAn info-graphic is a digital representation that uses elements of something to tell you about what you are looking into. So for example my blog topic is on clean eating, so when I went to look for an info-graphic I typed in “Clean Eating Info-graphic”, and then a bunch of different ones popped up. The reason I chose the one that I did is because I felt that it related better to the things that I am talking about on my blog. It talks about not eating processed foods, eating more raw vegetables, and drinking more fluids. Those are the things that really relate to my blogs.  

The info-graphic that I picked out tells you ways to make your eating more clean. It gives you six simple steps to make your diet healthier and a good example of clean eating.

Some of the things that the clean eating info-graphic tells you is that you should avoid processed food and that you should eat more at home. If you are going to need a “fast food meal” that day, take some fruit or vegetables, those can be used as good substitutes when you are on the go and need a fast meal. It also tells you to eat more raw greens, they are very good for your body.

I felt that this info-graphic related well to my blog because my blog is on good ways to eat clean, hints the name of the info-graphic “Clean eating basics”. It demonstrates well the things that I bring up on my blog.

Looking at this, it gives you a lot of other ways that also are a very effective ways to change your diet. It says that you should eat more natural fats, and that you should eat less protein. Eating too much protein is not always the answer to a good diet. Also, if you think that taking gluten out of your diet when you don’t have an intolerance to it is also not a good option. If you are not allergic to it, you should not cut it out of your diet completely in some ways it is good for you.

It also gives a very good statement. Most people think that it is good to cut down on how much that you eat, but that is not always the option. Eating like a “squirrel” is not good for you. It is not good to starve yourself, and it is not a diet.

I think that this info-graphic is a very good thing to check out. It taught me a lot just by reading it!

Coconut Oil: A Healthier Substitute To Your Diet*

Island Fresh Superior Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, 54 Ounce
Have you ever thought about making the change from regular cooking oils to Coconut Oil? Coconut Oil is a great oil substitute when you are cooking food. I first started using it 3 years ago, when my mom and I had learned about it through a diet we were starting. The diet was called 21 Day Fix, and you were aloud to eat chicken and the only thing that the chicken could be cooked in was Organic Coconut Oil. This is now the only type of oil we use when cooking any types of foods that calls for oil. It is great when trying to eat healthier. And did I mention that it even adds a great taste to the food that you are cooking it in!  

There are many reasons why Coconut Oil is a better substitute than regular cooking oils. One of the main reasons that it is good for you is because it has MCT’s in it that are a very good and effective way to keep and maintain a healthy metabolism. Also, it turns into a healthy energy source as well. Who wouldn’t want to use a product that would help you to maintain a healthy body.

Many people may think they do not know how to use Coconut Oil, but it is very simple. Whenever a recipe calls for vegetable or all purpose cooking oil you would just use the Coconut Oil instead. For me and my family we use it when cooking chicken or vegetables, and also when we are baking. It is just a more all natural organic way to cook healthy foods. Coconut Oil can be found in any store that sells groceries or other types of cooking oils. It is even in the same department or isle.

So if you are trying to eat healthier or to cleanse your body of all the bad oils you many be putting into your body through foods, just try and use Coconut Oil. It is just a simple fix and change to your diet and you will be eating a little bit healthier every time that you use the Coconut Oil. And if you have ever thought I don’t know how I can change my diet to make it healthier, well here is a great start and an easy change.
