How to Use Food Combining Guidelines (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 42)
 
03:17
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode explains the basics of food combining and how to use these guidelines for best health, energy, weight and digestion. Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: The types of foods you eat and the amounts you eat them in both play a role in the creation of proper health, energy and weight, or lack thereof. But how you combine your foods, as part of your meals is also important to consider, as different types of food require different enzymes, pH levels and digestion times. Food combining is based on the concept that certain foods go well together and complement each other biochemically, while others interfere with each other’s digestion resulting in many problems, like malabsorption of nutrients, fatigue, mental fog, bloating, indigestion, excess or unpleasant gas, constipation or diarrhea, toxicity and food sensitivities. If you have poor digestion, or would like to improve or support your digestive system’s function and your energy levels, here are the most useful and important food combining guidelines: In general, fruits should be consumed on their own, on an empty stomach either before or in between meals, as they are the fastest and easiest to digest. Some fruits combine well with leafy greens, for example as part of green smoothies, and some can be paired with real grains, such as a bowl of oatmeal or buckwheat. Non-starchy vegetables combine well with starchy vegetables, such as asparagus with potatoes. Most vegetables also combine well with beans and real grains, for meals like veggie soups, chilis and whole-meal salads. Animal foods, like meat or eggs combine well with most water-rich vegetables, but not starchy vegetables or grains. If you eat such foods, having some meat or eggs with a common salad would be fine, where as having them with potatoes, rice or bread would not. Isolated and concentrated fats, like oils do not go well with most foods high in starch or protein. Eat healthy fats from whole plant foods instead, like nuts, seeds, avocados, coconuts and olives, predominantly with vegetables. Overall, simple meals and ones made of whole, real plant foods are the best, rather than meals made of many different foods, refined foods or animal foods. Note, that food combining is not nutrient combining and some food combining guidelines can be faulty, complicated or impractical by focusing on isolated nutrients too much. Food is a collection of nutrients, not a single nutrient. Beans, for example, are high in both protein and starch, and animal foods are high in both protein and fat. Be sure, therefore, to use conscious discernment with any food combining guidelines you choose and most importantly pay attention to how your body feels.

10 Problematic Food & Meal Combinations (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 43)
 
03:40
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode shares 10 examples of some of the worst food combinations, which can prevent optimal health, weight and energy, and create or further aggravate food sensitivities and weak digestion. Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: An often overlooked part of healthy eating is proper food combining, which acknowledges the different enzymes, pH levels and digestion times needed by different foods to become properly digested and absorbed. Here are 10 of the worst food combinations that should be avoided for best health, weight, and energy levels, and those with food sensitivities or weak digestion: 1. Melons with Any Food — Melons like watermelon, cantaloupe or honeydew do not pair well with any food, including other fruits and should only be eaten alone, on an empty stomach. 2. Fruits with Dairy — The quick and easy digestion of fruits conflicts with the high animal fat and protein digestion needs of dairy. Dairy also blocks the absorption of antioxidants, which are disease-preventing and health-promoting nutrients found in whole, plant foods, like fruits. 3. Fruits with Meat or Eggs — The quick and easy digestion of fruits conflicts with the high animal fat and protein digestion needs of meat and eggs. 4. Acidic foods with Potatoes or Grains— Initially acidic foods, like like citrus fruits, tomatoes or their juices interfere with proper starch digestion. 5. Avocados with Eggs — Both of these are high fat foods, making for a very high fat and heavy to digest meal. Enjoy the healthy fats of avocados with vegetables and other whole plant foods, and skip the problematic animal fats associated with eggs altogether. 6. Meat or Eggs with Potatoes or Grains — Animal foods require a highly acidic pH for proper digestion, where as starchy vegetables and grains require an alkaline pH. The high animal fat and protein of meat and eggs also conflicts with the high starch content of potatoes and grains. If you eat any of these foods, it is best to pair them with non-starchy vegetables, like leafy greens, broccoli, asparagus, etc. 7. Dairy with Any Food — Dairy does not pair well with other foods, and milk from other species is problematic and unnatural for the human body. 8. Oils with Any Food — Isolated fats are stressful for the human body partly due to their unnaturally concentrated fat content, and interfere with optimal digestion. Eat healthy fats from whole plant foods instead, like nuts, seeds, avocados, coconuts and olives. 9. Dessert or Sweets with Meals — Whether they come from whole or refined sources, foods rich in simple sugars do not digest properly with other foods. Enjoy wholesome sweet treats in between meals, as snacks. 10. Drinks with Meals — Sugary, acidic and cold drinks each have their own problems when mixed with foods, and water dilutes the digestive juices needed for proper digestion. Drink ample water in between meals and small amounts before or after meals, if needed.

Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode explores stressors and common causes of stress. Learn effective stress solutions to relieve your stress and anxiety with the MAP Yoga Path online video program: http://www.mapyogapath.com/ Video transcript: The experience of stress is triggered by stressors, which come from external or internal stimuli, and create a sense of mental or physical discomfort within you. While there are many specific stressors, which we collectively recognize as unpleasant, negative or destructive, most of our stress is influenced by our beliefs and perceptions about various stimuli. Being able to identify your personal stressors, can help you avoid, minimize or overcome your stress in effective ways. Stressors can be: * physical, such as overeating, lack of sleep or strenuous exercise * chemical, such as alcohol, pesticides or artificial fragrance * biological, such as an injury, disease or hormonal imbalance * social, such as overcrowding, public speaking or peer pressure * environmental, such as uncomfortable temperatures, bright lights, or loud noises * circumstantial, such as a death, divorce or job loss * psychological, such as fear, anger or guilt Minimizing your stressors and learning how to effectively deal with your stressors are both essential to helping you achieve a better state of health and wellbeing.

Effects of Stress and Poor Sleep (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 10)
 
01:55
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode shares how stress impacts your sleep and the effects of poor sleep on your physical, mental and emotional health. Learn effective stress solutions to relieve your stress and anxiety with the MAP Yoga Path online video program: http://www.mapyogapath.com/ Video transcript: You may be aware that getting at least 7 hours of quality sleep per night is important for your health and wellbeing. By paying attention to the things that cause you stress and taking action, you can help ensure you are getting a good night's sleep. Long-term or chronic stress can make it hard to fall asleep and may bring on insomnia. It can also make it hard to stay asleep and may cause you to wake up too early. A lot of this has to do with high levels of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol levels can become imbalanced by long-term or extreme stress. Missing out on a good night’s sleep triggers a number of problems, which can cause you more stress. The first and most obvious effect of poor sleep is waking up feeling tired and groggy. This often creates a cycle of caffeine dependence, which creates further imbalance in our energy levels, sleep and health. It negatively impacts your memory and ability to focus, concentrate and be productive. It depresses your mood, creates emotional instability and makes you more prone to anxiety and depression. Ultimately, it increases your risk of infections and chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. To break this destructive cycle, be sure to engage in effective stress management, by identifying your stressors and minimizing their presence in your life and impact on you. You can accomplish this by practicing stress reducing exercises and developing healthy habits, like getting regular physical activity and eating nutritious foods.

Top 10 Vegan Diet Nutrition Tips (Healthytarian Minutes ep.46)
 
03:43
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode shares the top 10 most important nutrition tips for vegans to take into consideration, for best health, weight, energy and vitality. Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: Adopting a vegan lifestyle, which eliminates the use of all animal products, is a wonderful step to take on our journey of mindful living, to avoid supporting and contributing to the horrific animal cruelty that takes place to produce many of the foods, clothes and products in our world today. An appropriate vegan diet can also be the most healthful way of eating and help us easily achieve optimal health, weight, energy and vitality. However, inadequate vegan diets can be just as harmful as any other diet, which is deficient in essential nutrients and/or full of harmful substances. Here are 10 nutrition considerations for vegans to get the most benefit and least risk from their diet: 1. Focus on eating whole, plant foods, not refined or processed vegan foods. The latter options may help the animals, but they are not going to help you thrive. 2. Eat enough food for your needs daily. Even though it is energetically more efficient to eat lower on the food chain, most plant foods are naturally low in calories and require you to eat enough of them to properly sustain your body’s needs. 3. Eat enough variety of foods. A proper vegan diet should be based on lots of vegetables and fruits, along with some legumes or beans and grains or starchy vegetables daily. There should also be some nuts and seeds, as well as mushrooms, herbs and spices. 4. Eat enough vegetables, especially green vegetables and leafy greens daily. These are the most healing, protective and nutrient dense foods available on Earth for us. 5. Eat sea vegetables, like kelp, nori, dulse, wakame, kombu and arame. These are a great source of iodine and other valuable minerals, and should be consumed on a regular basis. 6. Eat omega-3 rich seeds daily, these being flax, chia or hemp. A whole food, vegan diet is naturally anti-inflammatory, but it is always important to have a good amount of essential fatty acids in the diet. Focus also, on decreasing your omega-6 levels, predominantly by avoiding vegetable oils. 7. Eat naturally fermented foods. Depending on your health needs, naturally fermented foods like raw apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, kombucha and plant kefirs should be part of your diet, on some kind of a regular basis. 8. Take a B12 supplement. A proper vegan diet should not require any supplements, aside from vitamin B12. 9. Get a healthy amount of sun regularly. Vitamin D functions like a hormone and is best obtained directly from the sun through our skin, as opposed to supplements or fortified foods. Practice smart sun habits to obtain this substance most safely and naturally. 10. Drink enough pure, high quality water daily. Be sure to depend most heavily on water as your main, daily beverage and minimize or avoid any processed or problematic beverages.

Stress Reducing Benefits of Journalling & How to Journal (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 5)
 
01:59
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode explores the benefits of journalling to relieve, reduce and eliminate stress, and how to journal. Learn effective stress solutions to relieve your stress and anxiety with the MAP Yoga Path online video program: http://www.mapyogapath.com/ Video Transcript Writing in a journal, or journalling, can serve as a powerful tool to help you reduce the effects of stress and anxiety. Writing allows us to express, examine and process our thoughts and feelings. Writing accesses the left brain and creates an opportunity for the right brain to intuit and feel. With open access to your emotions, you are less likely to suppress or repress them, which only leads to physical disease and mental unease. Writing about stressful events, for example, helps you come to terms with them, reducing the impact of stress on your health. Writing about anger, sadness and other painful emotions helps to release the intensity of these feelings. Journalling provides an open, all-accepting and nonjudgemental platform for personal expression. It can help you gain clarity and broaden your perspective to be more effective at problem solving and conflict resolution. Journalling is best done by using a pen and paper, as opposed to using a computer or other digital device. You can choose a simple notebook or purchase a specific journal that represents you. You can journal throughout the day, as different situations or emotions arise, or at the end of each day to process that day’s events, or journal whenever you feel the need or desire to do so. You can start by writing how you feel and why, and then allow the writing to flow naturally and go where it needs to. While grammar and spelling is not a priority, be sure to keep your journal in a safe and private spot, so that you can freely express anything you need, without censoring yourself.

How to Avoid GMOs in Your Food (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 47)
 
03:16
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode provides guidance and tips to avoid genetically modified foods for best health and wellbeing. Further resources: 1. Institute for Responsible Technology (http://responsibletechnology.org) 2. GMO Awareness (https://gmo-awareness.com/) 3. Article: Scientist speaks out about GMO dangers (https://foodrevolution.org/blog/former-pro-gmo-scientist/) Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: Aside from eating the right foods for the human body, in the right amounts for our personal needs, we also need to consider the quality of our food on our journey of optimal health. In addition to eating organic, local, seasonal and fresh food, as much as possible, it is also wise to avoid genetically engineered food. GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, include plants and animals who have had their DNA changed to include the DNA of another organism. BT corn is a common example, where the corn includes the DNA of a bacterium. GMOs have been found to be hazardous to both our health and the health of our environment, resulting in various risks and negative consequences. Currently, over 60 countries label GMOs, so that consumers can make smart choices. Unfortunately countries like Canada and the US do not, where GMOs are found in the majority of processed foods. Here is what you can do to avoid consuming and supporting GMOs. Buy certified organic foods, which cannot intentionally include any GMOs. Such foods will include at minimum 1 organic certification label and if they are fresh fruits or vegetables will have a produce sticker that begins with the number 9. Focus on real, whole and unrefined foods, as much as possible, and minimize or avoid processed foods. If you buy any processed, packaged foods, aside from any organic options, choose ones with the “Non-GMO Project” verification label. Note that foods with this label are not automatically healthy or good choices. If you eat any animal foods, know that unless they were certified organic, they are routinely fed with GMO foods, like soy, corn and alfalfa, which then end up in your body. Avoid these high risk foods and ingredients, unless they are organic: - corn, including fresh, frozen, popcorn, corn starch, corn flour, corn syrup and corn oil - soy, including tofu, tempeh, soy milk, soy ice cream, soy protein, soy sauce and soybean oil - canola, specifically canola oil - cottonseed, specifically cottonseed oil - sugar beets, commonly listed as “sugar” on ingredient lists - Hawaiian papaya - yellow and green zucchini Be mindful that many supplements, like vitamins and probiotics, also commonly contain GMOs. Always be sure to read all of your ingredients and make smart choices when dining out as well. To learn more about GMOs, visit the Institute for Responsible Technology at responsibletechnology.org

Quality & Quantity of Protein in Plant Foods (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 45)
 
03:09
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode shares about protein, its quality, and how much protein different plant foods have. Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Resources: 1. Infographic: Protein in Plant Foods (http://www.healthytarian.com/post/protein-in-plant-foods) 2. Article: 8 Protein Myths About Plant and Animal Sources (http://www.evolvingwellness.com/post/protein-myths-about-plant-and-animal-protein-sources) Video transcript: When food is whole, unrefined and unprocessed, it provides us with all the nutrients we need, like carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals, assuming that we eat enough for our needs, of the right foods. For the human body to thrive, this means eating a diet based on, or solely composed of, whole plant foods. Unfortunately, many myths and misguided ideas over the years have led us to form faulty beliefs about the nutrition potential of plant foods. This is most strongly seen in our perceptions about protein and plant foods, with common fears revolving around plants not having enough protein or the right quality of protein. However, nothing could be further from the truth, as all whole plant foods contain the right quantity and quality of protein for us to thrive. There is no counting needed, no supplementation needed, and no special combining needed. In addition, protein from plant foods is less acid-forming, than that from animal foods, does not come with a high unhealthy fat composition, but instead comes with a high healthy fiber composition, and does not trigger our immune and inflammatory responses, the way animal protein does. To meet and exceed our human needs for protein, we only need around 10% of our daily calories to come from protein, and more is not better, as high protein diets increase our risk of numerous health conditions. Here are the general ranges of protein compositions, as a percent of calories, in plant and fungi foods: Fruits: 3 - 13% protein Vegetables: 15 - 55% protein Legumes: 20 - 45% protein Grains: 10 - 15% protein Nuts / Seeds: 10 - 15% protein Mushrooms: 25 - 55% protein As you can see, there is more than enough protein in plant foods, which supply us with all the essential and non-essential amino acids. However, to have a healthy relationship with our food, we must stop seeing it and thinking of it in terms of isolated nutrients and numbers, and embrace the perfection of whole food, as intelligently created by nature for us. When you eat enough of the right foods, you get the right nutrients. For more information on this topic, see the Healthytarian Infographic “Protein in Plant Foods” and article, “8 Protein Myths About Plant and Animal Sources”, linked to below this video.

This predominantly means fruits, vegetables, beans and real grains. Refined or processed carbohydrates wreak havoc on our health, weight, energy and inflammation levels. To reduce or remove refined or processed carbohydrates from your diet, implement the following tips: Center meals around vegetables, as opposed to bread or pasta products. Swap white flour products for their whole grain counterparts. Swap flour-based foods for real grain foods. For example, choose brown rice instead of rice pasta. When dining out, say 'no' to the bread basket, or similar refined carbs, like chips. Choose salads and soups over subs and sandwiches. If eating any kind of burger, swap the bun for a bed of greens or salad instead. Choose soups based on vegetables and beans, instead of any kind of noodles. Replace boxed cereals with real grain options, like oats, buckwheat or quinoa. Replace snacks like cookies, crackers, donuts or granola bars, with fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts or seeds, or homemade goodies made of them. Pass, on desserts made of sugars and flours. Choose fresh fruits instead, as snacks in between meals. Avoid alcoholic drinks like beer, coolers and mixed drinks, which are a major source of empty-carb calories.

Healthy Bread: Food for Life's Ezekiel (http://www.evolvingwellness.com/post/a-way-to-enjoy-healthy-bread-food-for-lifes-ezekiel-products) Video Transcript: Bread used to be a healthy staple of many diets. Unfortunately modern bread has turned into a problematic food source for our health, weight, and energy levels. Today’s bread is highly processed, uses refined grain products, added fats and sugars, and is high in sodium. However there are several things you can do to pick a healthier bread and it all starts with reading the ingredients so that you: - Choose breads that are fully based on whole grain flours. Note that multigrain claims don’t guarantee whole grains. - Choose breads without added fats or oils. - Choose breads without added sugars. - Choose breads without artificial additives or preservatives. - Choose breads without genetically modified ingredients. - Choose breads based on organic ingredients, as much as possible. If you need to or want to avoid gluten, look for gluten-free options that are as wholesome as possible, and also follow these guidelines. Also, be sure to check the nutrition facts label to see the sodium level of your bread. The sodium amount per serving should be equal to or less than the amount of calories. Ultimately, the healthiest bread you can choose is one made of whole, soaked, sprouted and/or fermented grains. This means a high quality sourdough bread or a true Ezekiel bread, which is flourless and extremely nutrient-dense.

Enjoy an instant discount with this coupon: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video Transcript: One of the most effective ways to break unhealthy eating habits is via mindfulness, whether this be by engaging in mindful eating or making mindful choices when at the grocery store, kitchen, restaurants or work. Mindfulness allows you to pause between your triggers and your actions to consider the choice and outcome, and often this is enough to break unhealthy habits and form new, healthy habits by making better choices. Another effective method for breaking unhealthy eating habits is controlling your food environment. This includes not bringing home junk foods or unhealthy foods, bringing your own snacks and lunch to work, and minimizing your exposure to fast food or convenience food. The right education and support can also do wonders to get us to switch from negatively destructive to positively constructive habits. For example, if sugar is your weakness, invest some time in reading or watching content about its effects and engage family or friends to support your efforts. Finally, getting to know your stressors, or what causes you stress, and the cues that trigger unhealthy eating habits is also essential to get to the root of the problem and remove or deal with the stressors effectively.

10 Ways to Reduce Toxins in Your Home (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 48)
 
04:13
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode provides 10 guidance tips on how to detoxify our homes to reduce the amount of toxins in them, for our best health and wellbeing. For more guidance on healthy living, take Evita's online video course: The 5 Pillars of Optimal Health here: https://www.udemy.com/optimal-health/?couponCode=SiteSpecial Video transcript: The most important healthy lifestyle habits, like eating a diet based on high quality, wholesome plant foods, drinking enough pure water daily, moving enough and sleeping enough are how we create the best state of health, weight, energy and longevity. However, given the highly synthetic nature of our world today, it is also essential to decrease the stress and burden of toxins on our body by detoxifying our lives, as much as possible. Toxins found in commonly used everyday products can disrupt hormones, damage the nervous system, stress the liver, and cause headaches, fatigue, all sorts of allergies and respiratory conditions. Here are 10 ways to reduce toxins in your home: 1. Open windows and air out your house regularly. Due to the high concentration of toxins within the home off-gassing constantly, indoor air quality is almost always worse than outdoor air quality. The more fresh air you introduce, the more you improve your indoor air. 2. Switch conventional cleaning products to natural cleaning products. Choose fragrance-free versions, whenever possible, and know that simple things like water, baking soda, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice are some of the most effective cleaning agents available. 3. Remove all air fresheners, including scented candles. These are some of the most toxic products and highly irritating for our respiratory system. Use a diffuser with pure essential oils, or natural candles, if any fragrance is desired. 4. Switch conventional personal care products, to natural options. What you put onto your body is just as important as what you put into your body. Reduce the amount of products you use, and aim to use the least harmful options available. There is an abundance of choices available today for every budget. 5. Change your bedding to organic cotton and/or bamboo options. Cotton is one of the most heavily pesticide treated crops and chemically treated fibers. The slew of synthetic fibers, including polyester, come with all sorts of other problems. And given that about one-third of your day is spent in your bed sleeping, it is valuable to make it as safe and healthy, as possible. Organic cotton and bamboo mattresses, pillows, covers, sheets and blankets are all widely available today. 6. Remove carpets and opt for hardwood or tile flooring, as much as possible. Carpets harbor lots irritants and heavily off-gas due to their highly synthetic nature. 7. Switch plastic food containers, tupperware, cups and bottles for glass, as much as possible. Plastics are highly synthetic and can easily leach toxins into our food, especially if heated. 8. Avoid PVC — polyvinyl chloride — products, including many shower curtains, toys, vinyl flooring, and garden hoses. 9. Reduce the amount of stuff you have. One of the simplest and cheapest methods to reduce the concentration of toxins, is to reduce the amount of things we buy and have in our homes. Aim to have high quality versions of what you need for your lifestyle, without all the problematic excess. 10. Be mindful of what new products you choose to bring into your home. Make conscious choices when you purchase new things, that are both safe and healthy for you and our environment, on our journey of mindful living.

Here are some tips for preparing and packing your lunch: Cook a double portion of dinner the night before, and pack the second half as your lunch to bring to work the next day. Use batch cooking, that is preparing large quantities of food ahead of time, which can provide ready-made-meals to pack, or quick access to putting together meals for your lunch. For best afternoon energy and productivity, focus on whole-meal salads, hearty soups or chilis, wholesome wraps and vegetable-based entrees as your lunch choices, and avoid refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and heavy or greasy foods in your lunch. Make sure that your lunch, or the food your bring for your day, also includes plenty of healthy snacks like fresh or dried fruits; nuts, seeds, or homemade trail mix; homemade bars, squares or similar treats made of nuts, seeds and dried fruits; or vegetable sticks and hummus. This will ensure quick and easy access to healthy foods that can fuel you throughout your day and prevent reliance on unhealthy snacks that zap your energy and cause your body stress.

Enjoy an instant discount with this coupon: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: What you eat and how much you eat will greatly determine the quality of your health, weight, energy and overall wellbeing. To build a nutritionally sound and optimally healthy plate, follow these tips: Focus on eating the right foods, rather than specific nutrients. All whole, plant foods provide an excellent spectrum of nutrients and meet our nutrition needs adequately when we eat a variety of them daily. All whole plant foods contain protein, and foundational foods like fruits, vegetables, grains and beans are naturally high in healthy carbohydrates (our body’s main fuel) and fiber, as well as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients, and they are naturally low in fat. For typical meals: About two-thirds of your plate should consist of vegetables. Aim for raw, steamed or gently cooked vegetables, as much as possible, as opposed to canned or heavily cooked ones. This would resemble about 2 cups of vegetables. The remaining one-third of your plate should consist of beans or whole grains, and would resemble about 1 cup. If your diet includes any animal foods, be sure to keep its portion to about ½ cup, 3 ounces or the size of a deck of cards, and increase your vegetable amount even more. Standard food groups are not an ideal way to eat and you do not have to try to get all food groups in one sitting. It is actually better for your digestion to focus on simpler meals and smart food combining. For example, make a meal plate by combining vegetables with grains, such as a brown rice and vegetable curry; or make a meal plate by combining vegetables with beans, such as a whole-meal salad or veggie chili. For best digestion, eat your fruits on their own, as snacks or in between meals. Aim for at least 3 to 4 fruits, or fruit servings daily. Herbs and spices can be used liberally, and nuts and seeds can be used in small amounts to enhance your meals, whether on their own, or as part of homemade sauces.

How to Use Healthy Fat Guidelines (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 44)
 
02:40
Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode explains how to use healthy fat guidelines, as they relate to saturated and unsaturated fats. Learn how to eat an optimal diet for your health and weight with the Eat Real Food: Whole-Food, Plant-Based Eating online video program: https://www.udemy.com/whole-food-plant-based-diet/?couponCode=youtube25 Video transcript: A common recommendation for healthy eating is to focus on unsaturated fat and reduce saturated fat in the diet, as saturated fatty acids are more closely associated with risk factors for heart disease than unsaturated fatty acids. While this has value and merit, it is overly simplistic in its approach to be fully effective for best health, weight and energy levels. First, you need to know what food sources contain saturated fat. Typically animal foods, including meat, fish, eggs and dairy are the main sources of saturated fat. Foods like pizza, cheese, ice cream, chicken, sausages and burgers are some of the highest and worst sources. Saturated fat is limited in plant foods, predominantly found in nuts and seeds, and highest in coconut and palm kernels, and their oils. Second, you need to know that not all saturated fat is bad and not all unsaturated fat is good. It all depends on the source of the fat and its form. Saturated fat from plant foods does not pose the same risks as saturated fat from animal foods. Unsaturated and saturated fat from whole foods does not pose the same risks as that from extracted sources. For example, most oils are high in unsaturated fat, but oils of any kind are not optimally healthy foods, as they unnaturally isolate the fat from the whole food and cause artery damage. It is important therefore to focus on eating whole foods and plant foods for best protection, prevention and support for your health, weight and cardiovascular system. Third, you need to know how to keep a healthy quantity of fat in your diet. In general, diets must contain some fat, but also be low in fat. Eating a diet based on whole, plant foods can easily provide us with a naturally low fat diet, which also contains the healthiest versions of both saturated and unsaturated fats. This means eating a high amount of vegetables, fruits, legumes and real grains, along with small amounts of nuts, seeds, avocados, coconuts, and olives.
