High nutritional sources
Sunday, April 09, 2017
From my time studying nutrition both in biology and during food technology, there were Commonwealth Government printed Food tables that gave a breakdown of the different nutrients contained in different foods.
High on the list are the foods that are prepared to sustain new life.
This includes such things as seeds, nuts, pulses cereal grains, beans and eggs.
They have the components present to grow a whole new entity.
As mammals, milk is used to sustain young ones, irrespective of whether they grow up to be herbivores, carnivores or omnivores.
Unfortunately in this day and age some people develop sensitivities to certain of these foods groups such as gluten, nuts or dairy.
The good news is that there is some interchangeability between the groups such as having nut milk instead of dairy and beans, nuts or gluten-free cereals instead of glutinous cereals
Organ meat such as liver has a high degree of nutrients if the source is from an already-grown animal.
It can be seen that some of these commonplace items can help form the basis of a high nutrition diet
Problems arise when especially cereal items are stripped of their nutrition when being made into processed foods.
The above items can form the healthy basis of a diet, supplemented by the various phytochemicals and antioxidants derived from fruit and veges.
