There is a saying “our body is our temple and we need to take proper care of it to lead a healthy life”. Fruits and berries are among the world’s most popular health foods. If you cannot get them to eat healthy food, there are some ways to “sneak” the healthy food in, such as making muffins out of apples or bananas or pizza with vegetable toppings. So if you do eat animal products you definitely want to be sure to choose organic as often as possible so that you’re avoiding any toxic ingredients like chemicals or growth hormones.\n\nThe beneficial health effects of vegetables and fruits and other foods recommended in a balanced diet are well documented, but the jury is still out and not ready to conclude whether choosing the organic alternatives would provide additional benefits.\n\n1) Eat whole foods. Try eating things like oatmeal, blueberries, and soy products like tofu. Choose low fat items such as chicken breast over fatty red meat. Organic foods convey lower pesticide residue exposure than do conventionally produced foods, but the impact of this on human health is not clear.\n\n2. We all know that our bodies require many vitamins, minerals, and natural substances to provide fuel for our physical and mental vitality; to build and maintain our body structure; and to sustain all the wonderful complexity of physiological function.\n\nFrozen vegetables are sometimes even better than fresh ones. In developed countries, most of us eat far too much, so for some time we can reduce the quantity of our meals without losing any weight at all. Your body gets nutrients from meat, but not as much as you get from fresh fruits and veggies, so it’s important to get a variety – you don’t want to overload on some nutrients and leave others off, that’s not healthy food eating.
