Why we should eat vegetables?
As it was mentioned in the previous rows, you may already know that vegetables are the best source of vitamins and minerals. They have many properties thanks to their fibers content, proteins and all the other nutrients they may contain as well. Each season comes with their own types of vegetables and fruits. You also know from your own experience that vegetables are quite rejected by people, because they do not consider them too tasty. You, as a child, you must have hated them, as much as your own children, in case you have them, do.
In this situation, how can we solve this problem? The main step is to understand why we should eat vegetables. Nature can helps us in many ways, and to provide food, is one of them. No other processed food will be able to fulfill our needs such as the one provided by nature. People lived longer in the past and they had less technology and less chemicals or preservatives around them. Can you guess why? They fed themselves with all the things they could found or grew in nature and they eat raw vegetables or grilled meat with no other fats added.
The vegetables today, if they are naturally grown in an unpolluted environment, they can only bring you benefits regarding your organs functioning abilities. They are able to lower your blood pressure, decrease your bad cholesterol, improve your blood flow, increase the level of your immunity system and they can help your lungs and liver to function at their highest ability.
If you think about the level of stress and pollution that we have to endure every day all these benefits can only help us to survive in better conditions. The temptations that we must face every day, regarding food, such as fast food, alcohol, smoking and the lack of sleep can lower our chances of staying healthy. They will only cause the appearance of different kinds of dysfunctions and illnesses.
What types of vegetables should we eat?
Now, because the reason why we should eat these vegetables was established, now we may want to know which vegetables are the best for us. Some people may say that all of them. Others may say that they are good as long as we eat them in a raw state. This is not entirely true in any of the situations mentioned. The best veggies are the season’ veggies. When you feed yourself with what nature gives you in a specific period of the year, it means that you feed yourself exactly with what your organism desires. Are they all good? As long you do not notice any side effects such as flatulence or bloating’ syndromes things are great for you. Do you have to eat them raw? If you do not have stomach issues that may not help you tolerate raw food to well, you can eat them like that but the cooked version is just as good.
How to cook vegetables?
The full question will be how to cook them so everyone will like to eat them? Some people consider that cooking the vegetables means that you destroy all their nutrients. This is not true at all, as long you cook them properly so you can enjoy all their benefits. If you cook them right they will also look better and more tempting for everyone who sits at the table. Not too many persons will like to eat their meat simple with nothing added. Most people will also choose a nice salad or some nice gasket next to it. Let’s make this gasket from vegetables.
The main secret is to cook them less. Like that, they will preserve their color and their taste along with vitamins, antioxidants and everything else. Another tip will be to always use a bit of liquid when you cook them, even when you fry them. When I say a little bit of liquid it means a little, not too much. Even if you cook just a few vegetables, you should use a big pan. They should not stay one over another because you will turn your vegetables in some unaesthetic stew. They contain already enough water so you should not add too much.
Another secret is to not boil them too much if this is how you want to prepare them. They will not just lose their color but they will lose also their taste. Grilled vegetables can be a very good choice. Also, when you want to add oil, you should not add to much of it and you should choose olive oil instead of the one made from sunflower seeds.
What you must remember is that cooking them in your own home, will make them even more appealing. In time, you can even start eating less meat. You will notice quite soon the benefits that such diet brought into your life. You will feel more energized, you will get sick less often and you will even lose weight with no major efforts. You will see that this is just what you have missed before, so you could feel healthier. Fatty foods can get your belly filled but you will also feel more tired after such heavy meals. If you eat vegetables with regularity, you will function better.
My name is Aura and I am a very active woman. I like being like that because I consider that I have many things to learn from this life.
The main reason why I started to write, was to increase my income. In time I realized that this was not my real goal. I wanted to prove to me, that I have the ability to communicate through writing with people around the world.
I like the idea of sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people even if sometimes they may not agree with me. This is maybe the most important thing in this job. You must allow other people to come with their own ideas backed up by solid arguments.
Another thing, that made me fall in love with writing, was the fact that I can do, even if I do it in my spare time, something I really wanted to do my entire life. Expressing myself through writing gives me the freedom that I can’ t find when I am at my daily workplace.
With all these things being said, I hope you will find my articles interesting and useful.
