What is Healthy Eating?

Healthy foods for a better quality of life

Firstly, healthy eating is not a diet full of restrictions or tasteless. It ensures that the body is receiving all the nutrients it needs. Such as proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fibers, vitamins, water, and minerals. These items are essentials for all people who want to have a better life.

Besides, it is essential to avoid the consumption of processed foods. They are composed of substances that harm our organisms, such as dyes, preservatives, sodium, and sugar in large quantities. So, the more natural the food, the better!

A healthy diet improves people´s quality of life. For instance, it helps to prevent diseases and makes our body function works properly.

Canada’s Food Guide

The Canadian food guide

In order to help Canadians maintain and improve their health, and make the population aware of the good habits of healthy eating, the Health Canada (government department) released the revised Canada’s food guide.
With this intention, the guide recommends eating a variety of healthy foods each day including plenty of vegetables and fruits, protein foods (preferably of vegetable origin), and whole-grain foods. It also recommends limiting highly processed foods.

The Canadian food guide is divided into 3 groups of foods: Vegetables and Fruits, Protein, and Whole Grain.

Examples of foods in each group:

Vegetables and Fruits: Apple, banana, papaya, orange, carrot, beet, zucchini, pumpkin, cucumber, watercress, onion, chard, cabbage, broccoli, celery, etc.

Protein: Lean chicken, lean pork, fish, lean beef, tofu, beans, lentils, low-fat yogurt, milk, cheese, seeds, nuts, eggs, etc.

Whole Grain: Wheat, oats, rice, corn, sorghum, rye, millet, quinoa, whole grain pasta, whole grain bread, oatmeal, whole-grain brown, etc.

Benefits of healthy eating

The benefits of healthy eating are many, but the main ones are:

– Ensures more energy to carry out daily activities and practice physical activity.
– Prevents infectious diseases as it improves the function of the immune system.
– Decreases the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
– Promotes tissue growth and renewal, especially bones, skin, and muscles.
– Improves performance and concentration on daily tasks.
– Regulates hormone production.
– Helps prevent premature aging.
– Increases sleep quality.

The relationship between healthy eating and physical activities

For those who practice some physical activity regularly, healthy eating is a fundamental factor to guarantee a good result. Therefore, the diet must be balanced and complete for allowing the body to perform its functions properly.

The correct nutrition guarantees the energy needed for your workouts, helps in the recovery period, decreases the risk of injuries, and reduces fatigue. On the other hand, not meeting adequate nutritional demands can impair post-workout recovery and compromise our health. Regardless of the activity, you will be burning energy and therefore, your body will need macro and micronutrient replacement.

In conclusion, healthy eating is essential for physical activity, just as exercising is essential for healthy living. After all, it is this balance that will improve performance and boost your results, right?

Boosting your memory

Studies have shown that exercises effect directly the hippocampus, part of our brain responsible for learning and memory. In other words, by exercising, you improve your cardiovascular system, resulting in immediate improvements in your capacity to store information. Yes! Simple physical activities such as walking, running or cycling before your studies can help you remember more things for your test.

Enhancing your concentration
