Healthy Eating: Start the day with Whole Foods
Fit food method starts with eating more whole foods throughout the day. These include fruits, vegetables, grains like rice and whole wheat, pulses including beans and lentils, complete protein from whole meats and diary, along with fats found in nuts and seeds.
Whole foods provide all the necessary macros like fats, carbs, and protein needed to repair and rebuild the damage done by day’s fatigue. They are also high in micronutrients like vitamins and minerals needed to run many of the enzymatic reactions. Most enzymes are activated by certain vitamins, such as vitamin A and D, which further exhibit hormone-like functions. Minerals are essential for proteins to take shape and do their work. Iron, in particular, is important in the fight against fatigue, by binding oxygen to red blood cells.
Quick and Easy way to do this:
Start your day with a piece of fruit like an apple or banana, adding it to breakfast oatmeal or whole grain cereal. Chopping a few walnuts into this breakfast bowl or grabbing a handful as a side further increases this meal’s nutritional profile. You begin your day with energy lasting meal containing fiber filled grains, vitamin, and mineral filled fruit, protein, and essential fat filled nuts.
