Plant-based eating is one of the best things that you can do for your body. People don't realize the trauma that they are putting themselves through with poor meal choices. The bottom line is this, protein comes from plants. Animals eat plants. Humans eat animals to get the recycled protein. So, why not get it directly from the source?!
During the Holidays, people tend to go a little overboard with the food, and don't even get me started on the desserts, because I have a real sweet tooth, and I finished Thanksgiving's pumpkin pie in a week by myself! Yes, I am proud of that, we all need to indulge a little sometimes! However, it is important to remember Balance.
When planning your meals out, or making your trips to the grocery store, try to include fruits and veggies of every color. Grab as many colors as you can find! Did you know that carrots come in a variety of colors like purple, orange, white, etc. When you eat all of the colors, you are getting an excellent supply of much needed nutrients!
Is there a farmer's market near you? Not sure... Google It! Find your way around excuses, like "oh, it's too expensive to eat organic" or "I don't have time to..." Well, do you want to be healthy or not? You only get that one body that you're cruising around in, and you don't have to, but it would benefit you greatly to take care of it. So, put the excuses aside and get to work!
Broccoli and brown rice, when paired together, are highly recommended as great sources of protein, so eat up! Frances Moore Lappe, author of "Diet for a Small Planet," recommends pairing a whole-grain, such as brown rice, with a complementary protein source, such as foods from the legume family. Pairing these two food groups together results in a complete protein. Brown rice and red beans, both cooked without salt, give you 10.2 g of protein per 1 cup serving of the beans and rice, as well as a trace of sodium and 579 calories. Adding a variety of steamed vegetables increases the nutrient content of the dish.
