Luckily for us, we don’t have to look far and wide for healthy foods to incorporate into our diet. It won’t amaze you that some foods are healthier than other ones. Therefore, I’ve gathered five foods that, if eaten regularly, can improve your health majorly. So, are you ready to take in, write down, and memorize these healthy eats? Then read on, my friend!
Hi, and welcome to the post of today!
I have periods in my life where I’m really good at eating healthy, and periods where all that “healthy eating” moves down on my priority list. I usually don’t make a big deal out of the last situation, because I will notice the negative effects after a certain amount of time… so I find myself jumping right back eventually. But! Not with some effort. Sometimes I just lack the motivation, because eating unhealthy is easier… that’s what I tell myself though. Of course, that’s not the case (be on the lookout for a post about this!).
If I want to be back to eating healthy, most of the time I ask myself a very simple question. Here comes:
Why do I want to eat healthily?
And my answer to that is always:
“Because I want to feel good, be energetic, prevent/heal sickness and provide my body with the right fuel to perform at its best.”
And since I’m a mom, I add the part below for some extra
“I have to set an example for my kids and at the same time prepare or give them food that nourishes their little bodies and keeps them healthy, happy and energized.”
Every time I tell myself this (mantra much?), a feeling of guilt washes over me, and I’m ready to start eating healthy again. So it’s important to ask yourself this question in order to get your focus back.
Yes! The first move is made. Now onto the next steps:
The eternal struggle of eating enough vegetables… Those who can relate know what I’m talking about. We all know how important it is to get your veggies in; according to the orthomolecular medicine, you need 700 grams of vegetables a day! If you’re not used to eating vegetables that is quite a lot. However, I may have found some strategies (if you will) that have helped me a ton, and I figured that you may be benefitting from them as well.
Vegetables (especially organic ones) are full of vitamins and minerals which are essential for our bodies. Did you know that in order for your body to function properly it needs 15 essential nutrients that can’t be produced by the body itself? Those include Magnesium (spinach), Iron (mushrooms) and Calcium (broccoli). If you consistently eat vegetables and bring variety in them, your body will benefit from that tremendously.
So let’s move on to what you’re all here for…

Sipping from some soup aren’t ya?
I love soups. You can literally throw in the most random vegetables with some vegetable broth and let everything cook (not too much). After that, you just have to process everything with a blender so you can enjoy your delicious meal.
One of my favorite soups is broccoli soup.
