What is a nutritious, balanced diet?

Many of young adults dismiss the idea of eating healthy when they move out of home for the first time due to time constraints, money shortage or a lack of cooking skills and basic knowledge about balanced diet. Unfortunately, eating instant noodles and McDonald’s every second day of the week won’t do you any good. Of course it will save you some money but you’re very likely to increase your risk for heart disease and other chronic health problems like diabetes as well as experience issues with maintaining a healthy weight in a long run. By limiting your diet to only processed food, you’re illuminating important nutrients such as protein, calcium, potassium, healthy omega-3 fats which are essential at this stage of your life.

Health Diets by My Sweet Love Language

So make sure that your diet includes:
• plenty of fruit and vegetables
• plenty of bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and other starchy foods (choosing wholegrain varieties when possible)
• some milk and dairy foods
• some meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein
• just a small amount of foods high in fat and sugar
• about six to eight glasses of water every day

It’s also very important to consider the amount of caffeine, soft drinks and alcohol you consume as its consumption diminishes calcium and affects how your body uses nutrients from food. So next time you are at a supermarket, take a look at your shopping trolley and make sure that you have a few items from each of the food groups.
