Nutrition Bites - Time to Detox
February 5, 2019
I need a detox....from all the diet talk. I'm happy the quick fixes and magic pills of January are slowing down, because they are often missing the big picture.
Let's get back to basics here. Your body needs calories to work. Calories come from the breakdown of fat, protein and carbohydrates (macro nutrients). Foods that contain carbs, fats and protein also give us essential vitamins, minerals and fiber, which is why it's important to have all the food groups! While everyone's needs are a little different, try to incorporate the following components on your plate to make sure you're meeting your body's needs.
- Grains/Starches (Oats, Wheat, Barley, Rice etc)
- Protein (Fish, Eggs, Meat, Dairy, Tofu etc)
- Fat (Oils, Nuts, Seeds etc)
- Produce (Fruits and Veggies: the more color, the better!)
