Hello all! I am desperately behind on my homework for my current course, with my next assignment due Thursday…I still have reading to do…and I haven’t even started the assignment. So, for the remainder of the week, I’ll be reposting some of my old articles, from when I first started my blog, sort of a “Best of..” The Purple Almond. 😉
This article is the second article I posted in the “How to eat healthy” series. The article features 5 videos, highlighting experts in the field of nutrition, giving their tips on eating healthy. Here are just a few of their tips:
Onto the main article and the 5 videos… Tip, if you only have time to watch one video, I recommend video #2 from Prevention Magazine. It’s quite enlightening!
In part 2 of what I decided would be a series of blogs on “how to eat healthy.” I have gathered together 5 videos. In these videos you’ll learn: better ways to distinguish whole foods from processed/refined food, how much sugar is actually in that “low fat” fruit yogurt you eat, secrets of the food industry, ways to incorporate whole food into your diet and how to read labels. I hope you enjoy!
Corrina Rachel-Certified Holistic Health Coach gives tips to help distinguish the difference between whole food and processed food.
Prevention Magazine-and the Sugar Showdown– whole food vs processed food. This video illustrates the sugar content of processed food and their whole food counterpart.
Kia Sanford-Clinical Nutritionist and Counselor discusses food labels and how to read them. The main thing to take away from this one… “If you can shop the perimeter of your grocery store, there are no labels there. Makes it easy. You know why? It’s real food: fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat. That’s the main part of what you should be building your meals from anyway. Then you don’t have to worry about a food label.”
