Would you put a lower grade of gasoline in your Mercedes-Benz? I sure wouldn’t because I would want my Benz to run smooth without any knocking and pinging. Well, consider your body temple like a Mercedes-Benz or any car that you would consider your dream car. What would you put into it?
You know you would put only the best fuel into your most prized possession. Why not put the best fuel into your body? Do you realize that we oftentimes treat our vehicles and other valuable objects better than we treat our own bodies? It is the truth and it is a shame.
Your body needs the best fuel to run smoothly and efficiently. You need the best fuel because it will not only help you in your day-to-day activities, but the best fuel will also contribute to you being, feeling and looking healthy.
You are probably wondering what the best fuel is for your body. Well, no need to fear, I’m hear to tell you. I realize that everyone will not be a vegetarian or vegan, but you still can give your body the best fuel by increasing the good stuff and decreasing the bad stuff.
Good Stuff #1 – Vegetables
It is a known fact that vegetable consumption is low. I have family members who hardly ever eat vegetables, so I can see some truth in this. I have a family member thinks that whenever he eats a sandwich from McDonald’s that happens to have lettuce and tomato on it, that he has had his vegetables for the day. No, no, no, not so!
Let’s look at what vegetables are and how what they contain.
A vegetable is the edible part of a plant. This is usually the leaf, stem or root of the plant.
- Little protein
- Little fat
- Dietary Minerals
Vegetables are packed with all kinds of goodies. Good things that your cells need and will benefit from by you eating them on a regular basis.
Good Stuff # 2 – Fruit
Most people have no problems eating fruit. Because fruit is usually sweet to the taste, but there are some fruits that are not sweet to the taste. Some call these fruits vegetable fruits. Either way it goes, fruit is another goodie that you should be eating on the regular.
Fruit is the structure of the plant that contains its seeds.
Fruits are high in:
- Vitamin C
- Contain various phytochemicals
There is more good stuff out here, but I’ve only shared 2 of the main ones that I believe are the most important. I believe these lay the foundation for you to Become a Healthier You.
