The How to Non Diet And Avoidance Routine Part 2 (The Game is Afoot)
The Fat Guy in Front Needs My Diet
Get Healthy and Buy This?
There will be no links here. The reason is simple. Every one of the articles online have agendas. Most often to sell you a gadget or a supplement. And way too many use the “you are going to die if you do not get this supplement”. So I will often use buzz words you can cut and paste to your browser. And normally skip the ad ones. My favorite theme on those sites goes like this; “Follow this diet and you will be healthy – and take this 100$ supplement of mine and you will be super healthy.” Well that is just plain snake oil salesmanship.
And let us be clear here that programs that focus on weight loss and increased libido and energy are a little bit silly. Programs have to focus on happy. Yes that should be the goal. Have you ever seen an unhappy person in great shape? Of course you have. I am as serious as death here. Joy! That is what we are looking at. Nobody is ever really happy being a glutton.
Do not eat that Apple! Do not eat Black Pepper! Do not eat pickles! And for the Lordy’s sake never ever ever eat Pizza! How about not eating anything with wheat or corn in it. And the general rule of thumb to never buy anything with more than 3 ingredients, and you must be able to pronounce on first try. Stuff with sugar, no way. Fat or no fat? And of course veggie verses carnivore.
I hope your head is spinning and asking “what and why?” But here is the strange part. All of the above has a good reason to it. And all of the above is probably good to stay away from. But but making it a hard rule is as ridiculous as a religious strict notion.
So as promised in part one for the rest of this installment we will look at what folks love to call “superfoods”. Let’s go ahead and start being happier!
I Do Indeed Want Love Alive And at My Breakfast
Food Must Be Love
Honey Baby I Might Be Fat But I Am Happy!
It is my humble opinion that fruits that are still hanging on that tree or vine are the healthiest overall food. Of course as always in moderation. And of course not a plant that has chemicals all over and in it. Some evidence suggests that a fruit or vegetable loses up to 30% of its nutrient value within 30 minutes of harvesting. That maybe more of a thought than not. But the concept helps get that point across. I caught my elder son pulling down a branch and eating an apple on the tree. I was content picking it, shining it on my shirt and chomping down. Yes we can take this to extremes, and if that is fun for you go for it.
And our friend the apple is a great example here. For most folks 200 or so carbohydrates is a daily suggestion. So the 25 or so carbs in an apple is just great. However for a fat burning concept carbs are to be avoided as much as possible. But check this out.
Tons of fiber and vitamin C, tiny amount calories, basically salt free, and of course no cholesterol or fats. And these babies are loaded with the antioxidants known as polyphenols. Way to go apple! For sure an apple a day keeps that medical bill away. I hope a reader can give us a link to a great recipe for a healthy apple pie. Please not too healthy. My mom used to send me out to pick apples from our trees and run them back and she would make pies straight away and not add brown sugar. Tart and great.
Some people use a tea of Echinacea to help prevent colds and as an all around health booster. I find no reason not to. But if you find a cold coming on eat the apple also, please.
Almonds and Brazil nuts. These babies are crazy good for you. If they are just a little bland and dry for you get some of that fancy pink salt and add it. I often go with my favorite pure hot sauce so I get the benefits of red and green peppers also. I find nothing to suggest slow roasting takes away any nutrients.
This here is what they got, with maybe Almonds with a little more – a tight race.
About eight grams of vitamin E per 100 grams. Check out these compounds and minerals, it is like crazy; calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc, manganese, selenium, potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. B complex vitamins, niacin, folate, pyridoxine, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid also a lot of fiber. Ok now go look at your Centrum multi vitamin – look familiar?
Avocado is pretty darn good for you. Cut in half and eat at least a couple a week. They have these fats for you that are like the best. This Omega 3 deal is something I buy into, I do not think it a fad. So fatty acids by way of something called alpha-linolenic acid. Of course they have a full blast of anti-oxidant’s. And again the nutrients look like your one a day vitamin. Personally I like to mix them up with another outstanding food, cucumbers, chill, Lemon juice and any kind of spices. Again I am a freak for hot sauce but beg of you no Tapatio. Will visit sodium benzoate later.
Let Go. It Is Just a Fun Song About Eating
Mud Pies Anyone?
Politics and Religion - Forget About It. But Lets' Argue Food!
Ok, I feel your pain if you do not like any of the above.
Go with tomatoes. You are just looking at a laundry list again. vitamin B6, folate, niacin, fiber, vitamins A, and B6, folate, niacin, vitamin E, phosphorus, vitamin C, biotin, molybdenum and vitamin K. Copper, potassium, manganese. Again for me it is chilled lemon juice or some kind of healthy apple vinegar type deal with, in this case I like Italian herbal seasoning. Although for me I admit to eating them like an apple in my garden.
OK get out the rocks and start throwing. Blue cheeses. (or other similar like Goat cheese) Named for that penicillin stuff in it. No more than a heaping teaspoon. It is a bad fat food. Yes it is in fact a good protein and it has some fine nutrients in it. But you eat a heaping tablespoon of this stuff and you could reach a fat intake that is as much as you should have in a day. I love it as you are scratching your head and calling me a name regarding my veracity.
Dr. Dierker is way ahead you. There are two reason why some awesome cheeses are good for you. Sorry but your cheap cheddar or God forbid American cheese are slow murderers. First I firmly believe that the bacteria in them is complementary to our own bacteria. From what I have found, fermentation and any preservative free aging is good for us. But a real reason is taste and happy. We just need some fun stuff to eat. And do not worry if cheese is not your thing we will get to others. With all this lemon for alkalizing and non-seasoning to avoid salts and sugars. Give me a break.
Here is a fav just for me, akin to what my mom called fire and ice. A good onion cut and halved into half circle type pieces. Avocado and Tomato in a vinaigrette which you can make healthy wise and then that teaspoon of a pungent cheese in like a crumble. Personally I tend to go with homemade goat cheese from south of our border just a few miles away.
We went too far today. Please leave a comment suggesting stuff and requesting particulars on a food you love. Oh and by all means attack the concepts. It is easy to do and I like it.
