Food as Medicine

May 19th, 2014 Posted in Healthy Foods | no comment »

There are so many different kinds of food that are therapeutic to the body, can help you keep fit and trim and are just great for you.

Keeping your full: Resistive Starches
Number one on the list are beans. Packed with fiber they help with keeping your full and satisfied. You don’t even have to eat a lot of beans; each half a cup has about 7 grams of fiber.

The most potent type of resistive starches also include whole grains, potatoes, bananas and legumes ( split peas and lentils).

The ultimate fill me up legumes- split peas and lentils!

Fill up your belly with legumes

Oats Are So Very Good For You~

oats

I start most of my days with 1/4 cup steel cut and 1/4 plain rolled oats steamed for about 5 minutes mixed with 1/4 cup of almond milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I also add a chopped apple.
So nutritious and filling to start your day.
The other benefit is that oats can lower your cholesterol.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make it a nutritious one.
