Today we are going to talk about healthy eating and how to choose the right food. Have a look at the table. You see that Healthy Lifestyles consists of Mental Health and Physical Health. Food belongs to physical health and consists of dieting, nutrition and eating disorders.
Proverbs dealing with food: EARLY TO BED AND EARLY TO RISE MAKES A MAN HEALTHY, WEALTHY AND WISE. HEALTH IS ABOVE WEALTH. AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS A DOCTOR AWAY EAT TO LIVE BUT DONT LIVE TO EAT EAT AT PLEASURE BUT WITH MEASURE APPETITE COMES WITH EATING. Lets speak a little bit about colors and their influence on our health.
Summing up, you have had a look at the triangle where you could vividly see foods highest/lowest in nutrients and calories and you have had a chance to listen to advices on important vitamins and nutrients on the Internet from Natalie. Now read the text to yourself and then speak about your own favorite food. You should always keep in mind the balance of good health.
For some food is a source of pleasure, for others - a source of energy. For me food is a pleasant source of energy. I think that pleasant food is healthy food. To my mind healthy food should be quite simple. I eat complicated dishes only in restaurants. My daily meals consist of the same dishes every day. First of all I would like to say that I do not eat animal meat at all. I prefer fish and other sea products. So in the morning I usually have some cottage cheese with kefir, then I have tea with two cheeseburgers. At dinner I have vegetable soup, a salad and fried fish. I do not have desserts, but only tea with lemon. For supper I have just a salad and then I eat fruit. I love all kinds of milk products, especially kefir, cottage cheese and cheese. I prefer cheeses from Germany, France or Switzerland. As for sea products I love shrimps, salmon and trout. I like different kinds of salads, dressed with olive oil or sour cream. I also love all kinds of potato dishes. I usually drink down food with natural juices or kvass. I prefer to have tea with bitter chocolate or home-made jams. As I do not change my daily dishes, I very seldom have stomach problems. Actually I think that the simpler food is, the better is its taste. Well, of course, on weekends I want to try a new dish. If I have free time, I try to invent a new salad or find an interesting recipe. On weekends I let myself have fast food, but its not good to have it all the time. Well, many doctors say that many fast foods have a lot of sugar or salt or fat in them - all the things that your body only needs a little bit of. I do not buy in shops ready or semi-manufactured food products, because this is unhealthy. It is better to spend some time cooking, than to have problems with overweight and heart.
Today we have known a lot. Im sure that you know what food is healthy and what is junk. So, when you have to choose what to eat youll recall our lesson. But now try to make equal diet and health on these scales:
