A Healthy Diet Never Has to Be Boring!

It has been said that variety is the spice of life, and that is certainly true when trying to eat a healthy diet. No one likes to eat the same thing day after day, and boredom is the enemy of a healthy diet.

Fortunately for those trying to follow a healthy diet, there is plenty of variety to be had in healthy foods. In addition to the hundreds of varieties of fruits and vegetables available at the average grocery store, there is a wide variety of beans, lentils, healthy oats, nut milk, dried fruits and raw nuts. There is no need for boredom to set in when pursuing a healthier lifestyle.

The key to enjoying a variety of foods while eating healthy is to be creative, planning meals carefully and be sure to use the many varieties of foods that are available. Using a combination of fresh fruit, fruit juices, vegetables, vegetable juices, nuts and whole grains, it is possible to create fresh, exciting and healthful meals every day of the week.

Nutritionists often stress the importance of a varied diet, both for nutritional and psychological reasons. A varied diet is essential for good health, since different types of foods contain different types of nutrients. And following a varied diet is important to your psychological well being as well, since feeling deprived of sufficient amounts of essential whole live foods can lead you to give up your healthy lifestyle.

It is much better to continue eating the foods you need to be healthy, but also to eat a variety of fruits, nuts, vegetables and grains in variety and creatively in combination dishes. As with everything else in life, good nutrition is daily ritual that requires practice, refinement and creative preparation of meals.

Of course simply choosing foods from the various groupings of fruits, vegetables and nuts is not enough.

No matter what your reason for following a healthy diet, or what your ultimate fitness goals may be, you will find that a good understanding of nutrition will form the basis of your healthy diet. Understanding how the various groupings of whole live foods work together to form a healthy diet will go a long way toward helping you meet your ultimate fitness goals. Whether your goal is to run a marathon, lose ten pounds or just feel better, knowledge is power, and nutritional knowledge will power your diet for the rest of your life.

I can never stress enough that a healthy diet includes purified water. If your goal is to achieve the maximum of health, inner and outer purity–light and vibrant life, begin purifying your water. Then train yourself to drink copious, sufficient amounts of purified water, on a daily basis.

And in all of your experimenting with an organic, whole live foods diet, I also encourage you to learn about the most ancient and basic principle of good health.

When you consume any food that body must work so hard to digest that the energy released from the digesting of the food is less than the energy required to digest it, you are starving your body and your mind.

Inversely, when you consume food that the body has to work far less to digest and the energy released in digesting is greater than the energy consumed in digesting it, you are making more vibrant healing energy available to the body than is exhausted in the digestive process. You feel full and satisfied, not because of overeating, but because your are providing your body and brain-mind the minimal volume of the right combinations of nutrient-containing foods your whole material system needs to feel and be healthy, vibrant and glowing with abundant energy.

Learn everything you possibly can about this principle-in-action. And you may reverse all tendency toward disease and create an environment within the body, wherein the contributors to disease–fungus, bacteria and viruses cannot grow and thrive. And when fungus, bacteria and viruses do not have the acid environment, in which they grow and thrive, they weaken and are destroyed by the immune system or simply leave the body.

    1. Hi Mathew. You are so very right in what you say. As a child, in the fifties, McDonald’s, for example, already had a toehold in the American economy and new McDonald’s were popping up, everywhere. Gas was 25 cents a gallon. So when the first McDonald’s appeared in Fort Wayne, Indiana, it was cheaper for my dad to haul the family 45 miles to the east of us for a McDonald’s meal of Hamburgers, fries and shakes than to feed us, at home. Then when the First McDonald’s appeared in Warsaw, Indiana, just 15 miles to the west of my dad’s house, eating at McDonald’s, or alternating at the A&W Root Beer Stand, where they served cheap hot dogs, smothered in chili was a weekly occurrence.

      Over the years, there was increasingly more potato chips and pop in my early dietary habits, at home. Even into my early twenties, it was still a habit to go to McDonald’s for a cheap meal, when I got hungry.

      When you grow up with junk food, it is terribly difficult to let go of it, to break away from this addictive “taste good, feel good” fast food culture that has permeated every aspect of our culture, not just here in the U.S., but almost universally around the world.

      It takes great spiritual courage to become wholly conscious of everything that goes into the mouth, which determines whether the body and brain will be health, or degenerate into sickness and disease.

      Thank you for your comment, Mathew. 🙂
