Nutritional Transformation
My nutritional intake is far from good. Before, I only thought of keeping a food log and always promised to start it on the following Monday and never reallyaccomplished it. During this course, my realization of my daily food intake made me make changes and fast.
In an overall view of my nutritional situation, I have a lot of work to do. For someone like me, substituting my indulgences for rather other healthier foods can at first seem like an impossible task, but with a little more imagination and experimentation I will be able to convert the typical, notso good looking healthy food, into a delicious part of a meal. According to my log, I am under the appropriate nutritional value of foods that I need in every category: grain, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and protein foods. Like stated in the Core Concepts page 207, “Just meeting energy needs is not enough, however. Your body needs enough of the essential nutrients to grow and function properly.” Ican substantially improve all of these categories just by combining the right foods the right way. Though, I do admit that my cooking strategies are far from skilled I can use some of the websites that provide simple steps to making healthy foods. Like the video from one of the modules that showed quick and easy recipes to make a delicious looking quesadilla that actually had spinach.
To startoff as a great morning breakfast and increasing my grain intake in at least three different ways is to do instant oatmeal with milk, put it in the microwave and while I wait I can finish getting ready or do other things. Another possibility is to buy some of the ready to eat cereals that are whole grain and add some raisins (I like raisins) and both of these combinations have really goodnutritional value. Also substituting regular bread for whole grain or multigrain and toast it with a bit of cream cheese or honey on top sounds delicious and healthy! As of now, I consume only half of what I need. Vegetables on the other hand are one of the ones that I have to be able to spice it up. For one, I can mix some broccolis and asparagus together and fry it with some spices and flavorings andserve it as a side dish. I heard about some juices that can count for the daily servings of vegetables that we need and I can drink one of those and not waste any time in preparing. The other way I can do it is to put them in vapor with a bit of butter for flavoring and cook chicken with it. Basically, just adding them to anything I can do it in creative ways since I only consume 11% of what I need....
