I just ran across an incredible post by Eat This, Not That. They list the worst things you can eat at certain Fast Food Resturants. Here’s the link. It’s amazing the amount of salt that is being used in Fast Food. I was shocked actually. None of its going to kill you if you only eat out once in awhile. But if you are consuming this food regularly, well…get ready for some real health concerns!
It’s much healthier to prepare your meals at home. Here are some tips to help you do that:
- Keep the salt to a minimum. (d)Too much salt is not healthy for you. Use Himalayan or sea salt in place of iodized salt. Himalayan salt has beneficial minerals that iodized salt does not and it takes less in quantity to make your food taste good.
- Never use MSG. (e)MSG has some real health concerns, and so I’d stir completely away from it. Be aware that the product SeasonAll has MSG in it.
- Make enough for leftovers. This is a great strategy to use so you’re not cooking every day. Instead, make enough for two or three days at a time. You don’t have to eat the same thing three days in a row. You can make another meal alternate days with each meal.
- After making your favorite foods, freeze them into lunch size amounts and take them to work. It’s an easy grab and take and helps you avoid the Fast food drive through.
- (a) (c)Have fish at least twice a week to help keep your body fresh with Omega 3’s which has many benefits such as better cognitive functions. The following fish are good for Omega 3’s:
- A. Anchovies
- B. Bluefish
- C. Herring
- D. Mackerel
- E. Salmon (Buy only wild caught because it has more omega-3s than farmed and less mercury.)
- F. Sardines
- G. Sturgeon
- H. Lake trout
- I. Tuna
- When possible, try to get omega-3 fatty acids from foods rather than supplements. But if you are someone that just hates all kinds of fish and just can’t stand the thought of eating them, then I’d suggest a supplement such as OmegaGize3 from Young Living at least since it’s so important to get omega 3’s into your body regularly. (Don’t try to skimp and buy something at the Supermarket. Many fish oil supplements found at the supermarket have been discovered to have PCB’s in them. (b)(PCBs are a probable human carcinogen).
- Use plenty of natural spices and herbs to make your food taste great and stay healthy.
- Remember to include plenty of fresh veggies and fruits in your diet.
