You decided to lead a healthy lifestyle? Then first of all you need to eat healthy.
What products should you eat? Undoubtedly – vegetables and fruits. Vegetables and fruits should be included in your every day menu, because they can not be replaced by anything. They contain a lot of organic acids, vitamins, phytoncids, and fiber (cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin) which control the functioning of your gastrointestinal tract.
Many vegetables and fruits contain such important carbohydrates as glucose, fructose and sucrose. This combination can be found only in honey. The peculiarity of carbohydrates of fruits and vegetables is that they are slowly decomposed and absorbed in small amounts without causing an excessive concentration of sugar in blood. This ensures their proper use without becoming fat, which is very good for overweight and older people.Some vegetables should be eaten without cooking (or at least frozen, pickled or canned), since cooking destroys a large proportion of vitamins, enzymes and phytoncides. When preparing dinner add a little onions, garlic, celery, parsley, dill – this will increase the biological value of your diet.Eating too little fresh vegetables can cause serious diseases, because of the lack of vitamins, organic acids, nutrients and other substances that can be found in fresh vegetables, fruits and berries.
Vitamin nutrition should be given special attention. Because the lack of vitamins (especially in spring) can reduce your resistance to various diseases.
