I don’t know about you but my newsfeed is jammed with Juicing recipes and Detox programmes this week. Its seems everyone is on a health kick. Isn’t it always the same for the first few weeks of January? We almost all feel the need for more nutrients in our diet. The whole area of nutrition seems to be filled with rules and regulations. There is so much information about what to eat and what not to eat and sometimes it can get confusing. I’ve been reading and studying Natural Health for a number of years now and what I know for sure … I mean 100% … no doubt …
ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL. ONE DIET DOES NOT SUIT EVERYONE and ONE WAY OF EATING IS NOT THE ONLY WAY OF EATING.
I believe it’s important to discover what types of food suit YOU. Individually we all have a unique constitution. This means we digest and absorb our food differently depending on the environment we are in and other conditions of our UNIQUE-NESS. Consider your genetics, your belief systems, the needs of your body, your lifestyle. What about your stress levels, the current status of your health, the performance of your endocrine system, your sleep patterns. What about your food, the source of your food, the time of your meals. All of these factors influence how our bodies metabolise food.
EVERYONE is different and the key to good healthy nutrition is finding out what works for YOU !
I’m no different this week. I am full of thoughts of new beginnings, goal setting and I’m excited about the year ahead. I’m also trying to rewrite my eating patterns after some indulgence over Christmas. Planning more nutrient rich meals is normally where I start and for us, the secret to getting back on track in January is having some yummy healthy snacks to turn to when the sweet tooth wants to indulge.
So I’m sharing some of my GO TO SNACK recipes here on the blog this week, starting with my very nutritious Crunchy Oat Bars. You might also feel the need to distract those sugar cravings with some nice nutritious, casual treats.
I would love to hear your feedback and suggestions on what works for you.
