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.

Thanks for reading my blog.

    It looks like those sources are similar to the foods that people in the Blue Zones eat. They are likely part of what allows them to live long lives with little degenerative disease, in comparison to modern cultures. (They also tend to eat a lot fewer calories overall than are recommended in developed countries, to snack little, and move more. And sweet is a minor flavor in comparison, too.) I've gravitated towards them more and more in recent years. I can't prove now that this is more in my interest than going LCHF, but since I miss starches more than I miss flesh when I cut either one a lot, these are winning. It's a gamble either way. I just know life is better now than it was when I was compulsively overeating a lot of manufactured foods, despite the effort it took and takes. Mazel tov.

    You are so very knowledgeable Richard!

    I'm an avid believer in geno types and body types as you already would be aware of. They make so much sense to me as I find what I hate or what I'm attracted to eating and food wise goes hand in hand with these two eating plans.

    Liver does have lots of nutrients, I have not had it in possibly at least 3 or 4 years. Guess I just never think to buy it and cook it.

    I*'m now learning to limit fruit intake to 2 possibly 3 per day in the morning only. Wish my husband who suffers from IBS would understand this but alias he likes his mix of fruit salad after dinner.

    There's a lot to be learnt also i'm finding out from food combining and digestion of certain foods.

    Boy oh Boy when you get into real true health not just kind of health for weight loss but you actually get to the nitty gritty of true health there is so much to know and so much more I have yet to learn.

    With your knowledge though you are very lucky and are leaps and bounds ahead of me.
