The Basics of Balanced Nutrition

🍎🥦🥚🥗 Understanding the basics of balanced nutrition is the first step toward a healthier lifestyle. Here’s a quick guide to help you get started:

1️⃣ Essential Nutrients: Our bodies need a variety of nutrients to function properly. This includes vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, water, and carbohydrates. Each plays a unique role in maintaining our health.

2️⃣ Food Groups: Aim to include all food groups in your meals - fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy (if tolerable) or alternatives. This ensures a wide range of nutrients in your diet.

3️⃣ Portion Control: It’s not just about what you eat, but also how much. Be mindful of portion sizes, especially with calorically dense foods, to avoid overeating.

4️⃣ Hydration: Water is crucial for many of our bodies processes and functions! Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

5️⃣ Regular Physical Activity: Combine a balanced diet with regular exercise for optimal health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate activity daily, and get outside for walks in fresh air.

6️⃣ Mindful Eating: Pay attention to what you’re eating and savor each bite. This can help prevent overeating and make meals more enjoyable.
