How to buy healthy food for a healthy lifestyle
Buy packaged food with the minimum number of ingredients
Buy grass fed meat
Grain fed meat, on the other hand, is obtained from animals which are mostly fed grains and artificial ingredients to increase their meat production. Grains are not the only diet of these animals because they require grass in their diet for their optimum health, and feeding them only grains causes the animals to get sick. Hence, they are given antibiotics and other medicines which are passed on to their meat. Buying grass fed meat is the best choice for your body as it is free from antibiotics and other harmful chemicals.
Buy vegetables and fruits
Vegetables and fruits are a very important part of our diet and they contain most of the nutrients that our body needs. Consuming mostly raw and minimally cooked vegetables and fruits is most beneficial to your body as most of the nutrients will be present in the food as cooking destroys the nutrients.
Buy pasture-raised eggs
Many eggs nowadays are marketed as cage free eggs and free range eggs. But they are not really cage free eggs as the chicken are allowed less than 2 square feet of space in a confined barn. They are fed purely feed which consists of corn and soy. Pasture-raised eggs on the other end are the real deal. Chickens are let out in the morning and are let to roam free and eat whatever they want to feed on including grass, worms, insects and feed. They are stress free chickens in a natural environment, eating natural food.
Avoid processed foods
