Healthy food = happy mood!
Wondering what constitutes healthy eating and perplexed with all the conflicting information? You aren’t alone! Healthy eating doesn’t mean you starve yourself of food you love or have limitations set in stone! It’s a simple rule of maximizing energy, feeling zealous and enhancing your mood, according to your body type or nature.
The basics of healthy eating are simple. A balanced inclusion of proteins, fats, fiber, carbs and the other required nutrients. And keeping yourself hydrated. Instead of eliminating categories of food, finding alternatives is the smart way to go. A yummy, nutritious and varied diet can work wonders for your body and mind. Make way for locally available foods rather than trying out fancy foreign supplements!
What to include more: fruits and veggies, whole grains and pulses, fish and seafood, beans, nuts, seeds and 2-3 liters of water
What to reduce: full-fat dairy items, red and processed meats, highly refined and processed grains, sugars, coffee/tea and sugary drinks.
