Go Organic!

Organic Food Info. net is my source for this entry...

According to current theory among dieticians, diet plays a vital role in giving our bodies the strength they need to fight off infection, reading up on organic food information will help you to build up your own immunity.

One of the most common diseases we face today is cancer, the incidences of which seem to rise daily.

Arming Yourself With Organic Food Information To Fight Disease

Eat anti-oxidant rich foods

Organic foods are naturally high in anti-oxidants as they retain much more of the natural constituents and plant compounds, which are so good for our health.

Eat your five a day

Common organic food information and advice but are you following it?

It is easy to eat five fruit and vegetable portions a day. Have a piece of fruit for breakfast, say a banana then have two portions portions at lunch and in your evening meal.

If you can eat raw vegetables such as peppers and tomatoes then so much the better. The lack of cooking means more nutrients are retained.

Eat a high fibre intake. Fibre rich foods aid digestion by carrying waste and toxic products through your body, so it can pass them quickly without absorbing too much.

Sound organic food information suggests you eat rich sources of fiber such as beans, peas, broccoli, prunes, figs, whole grains and other commonly available plant materials, organically grown to ensure the highest nutrient levels.

Eat healthy fats

Eat oily fish or take the Omega family of supplements, and eat fresh nuts and seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower seeds. These you can easily consume by sprinkling them over your breakfast or adding to salads.
