How to eat healthy?


Unfortunately not everyone is able to produce healthy food in your own garden.
With the increasing growth rate is good to know where and what kind of food to buy.
Take time for serious shopping, you allow trial and error.


In this way you will find out where you can make the best purchase.
If your city have more health food stores, find out who has the better deals for certain foods.
You'll be surprised when you realize that in some expensive stores some items costing less than elsewhere.
If you think you have no money for quality, ecologically grown food, just add up how much you spend a month on the chips, dips, pizza, snacks and other junk food.
Processed foods contain unhealthy additives that increase appetite. This can cause very expensive addiction.

Remember two things:

First Do not eat just for the pleasure of language, because you'll buy because of unhealthy and expensive foods.
Second Avoid frequent meals out, because this way you'll spend more money.

A few handy tips

Bread
Try to find a local bakery that offers fresh bread without additives. Organic bread and sourdough bread with sprouts is healthy. If possible buy a breadmaker and bake your own bread at home.

Cereals and pulses
Price of organic grains and beans is relatively affordable, especially if you buy them directly from the local eco-farmers (try to find one nearby). Use extra virgin olive oil, lemon and spices to add flavor variety of cereals.

Avoid canned beans. Dried beans before cooking the night should soak in water. Organic lens is a healthy and inexpensive and does not require any pre-soaking.
Most other legumes such as black beans and chickpeas, also do not require soaking before cooking.
Some experts recommend that the grains are soaked overnight to remove phytic acid that blocks nutrients.
Soaking the oats overnight makes morning you faster and healthier preparation. Morning oats cook until boiling, turn off heat and let stand covered for 15-20 minutes.

Vegetables and fruits
Finding fresh organic fruits and vegetables at affordable prices is the hardest part of the job. This requires serious planning.
A good solution is to find older people who sell their own fruit and vegetables at the market. Many of them still do not use pesticides, but it is safer to ask them to be sure to.

It is best to eat vegetables raw or steamed briefly. One salad a day with dark green vegetables and grated carrot is a great way of consuming vegetables.

You can buy a juicer to make cold and crush fruit and vegetable. Or, according to the method Boutenko, making green smoothies with a blender.

Soups
Do not buy soups because they contain harmful MSG - a flavor or "practical" cans. Simmer soup at home the old fashioned way with vegetables and potatoes. Cook for several days and store in the refrigerator.

Bean sprouts
Germs are another way to make your kitchen healthier and more diverse.
