Nutrition is KingPosted in Fitness, Food, Health, Nutrition, Vitamins
Letting nutrition be king over just a craving is essential to maintaining optimal health and wellness. In America taste is all the rage while in some unfortunate places many people lack even having enough food, let alone the right foods. While America is rich in options we are poor with our selection. I hope to convince you that choosing nutrition will be a difficult discipline at first but you will learn to love how you feel and possibly change the scale if you do it. In the last blog I was sharing some of the value of B vitamins. I’d like to add to that in this blog. In the B vitamin list I’m including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamins B6, B12 and folate as well as pantothenate, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), inositol, biotin and choline = B complex. Our physical and mental wellness are dependent on these resources. Our skin, sleep, heart, eyes, energy levels, a balanced mental state, and help reducing stress can all be effected by your uptake of B vitamins. White flour, in so many of our food selections, is devoid of so many of the Bs that are in the flour in its’ whole state. I consistently recommend that sprouted grain is an optimal choice if you are going to eat bread. After that a quality whole grain, organic if possible. Don’t take up your calorie space with things your body can’t use when it really needs the proper amount of nutrients for optimizing your health and vitality. Our focus shouldn’t be low calories as much as it should be good calories. I tell my kids in Super Sport class that we need a lot of the good stuff and just a little bit of the not so good stuff. Learn it, live it and teach it to your kids.
