Foods we avoid for no reason

By Harley Kemp / 2017-11-14

We are well known as a country whose cuisine revolves around fast food. We are also known for not using ingredients that everyone else uses. And some of those foods we avoid are extremely healthy, and we should use them on a regular basis.

The food industry is focused on a dozen or so foods that they advertise and sell. But things we buy on a regular basis aren’t the tastiest or the healthiest options we have. We are made to believe that they are better than everything else, but the truth is that they are trash compared to foods about which you will read here.

Tasty ingredients we should include in our diets

It’s strange how little we pay attention to green vegetables. For example, you got kale, a veggie similar to broccoli and cabbage in some nutrients it contains. It has a mildly peppery taste and works well in many salads. You can eat it instead of the cabbage or broccoli, and your health will improve as this vegetable has more lutein and zeaxanthin than spinach, which is known as one of the healthiest green plants. I should mention spinach as well, as we don’t eat it on a regular basis even though it is both tasty and healthy at the same time.

Greek yogurt doesn’t have any strong taste, and thus everyone can use it in cooking. It’s a healthy yogurt, and it contains a lot of protein. It works well in both sweet and salty dishes as it doesn’t add any substantial taste to them. The best way to consume Greek yogurt is to add it to a salad as a part of the dressing.

We eat little beans even though they are a tasty ingredient. I am not talking about one type of beans but as a food group. And don’t think that canned beans are a good thing because it isn’t. Buy fresh beans and either cook or fry them. They work well when added to green salads and they create a delicious broth when you combine them with cooked meat.

Sweet foods we should eat on regular basis

Pomegranate is a fruit that contains a broad array of nutrients, and it’s a shame people aren’t using to more than they do. Its juice works exceptionally well in marines, dressing, and sauces. Many chefs add it to their salads or combine them with roast meat. You can do all that, or you can eat it raw as it is a tasty fruit.

You might consider papaya as being an exotic fruit which is not available in our country, but you would be wrong to think that. Many Asian shops sell this fruit, and you should buy it as soon as you see one. Its taste is unlike anything you have tried. It is a healthy fruit which is an excellent addition to fruit salads.

Avocado is another fruit we avoid. It packs more nutrients than any other fruit, and it is readily available in every shop throughout the country. You can add it to various dishes, or just eat it raw, as its taste is something everyone loves.

Unique Foods For Cleansing And Detoxing Your Body

If you want to live a long and happy life, then you first need to take care of one important thing and that is your personal health. If you don’t take good care of your health, then you will most likely get some disease that will impact your entire life. Of course, everyone wants to live healthily, but the issue is that not that many people know exactly how to do it. People that don’t know how are trying to change their diet, start exercising, which is not bad, but there is one thing that you must do before all of that. If you don’t do this, then the results will be coming much slower than you were expecting. The thing that I am suggesting right now is cleansing and detoxication which is essentially the same thing.

Detoxing your body is extremely important, especially when you don’t watch your diet. During years of unhealthy eating, harmful toxins such as fats are accumulated in your body, and the easiest way to get rid of those harmful toxins is with a detoxication process. This process requires you to eat certain types of food that will cleanse your body. Here are some of the foods that I personally recommend trying out.

Chia Seeds

Chia SeedsDefinitely without second-guessing the most powerful cleansing type of foods are seeds. If you include seeds in your everyday diet plan, then you will start feeling much better about your health because they are very healthy. However, there is one seed type that stands out and that is the Chia seed. This is a tiny seed which is perfect for cleansing your guts. They will help you clean out completely your stomach. I personally recommend adding these seeds to your smoothies and drinking them in the morning to start your day the best way possible.

Probiotics

If you don’t know what probiotics don’t worry because that’s my job to educate you about them. probiotics are essentially food that is fermented and it contains a high level of “healthy” bacteria. I said “healthy” because these bacteria are very beneficial to your entire body, not like other bacteria’s that will make you feel sick. The issue with probiotics is that they have a very sour taste, but if you want to become healthy, then you have to deal with the taste. usually, everything that is healthy will have some unique taste that majority of people dislike.

Leafy Greens

Leafy GreensCleansing your body is a process that takes time and effort. You have to stay consistent with your diet if you want to completely cleanse your body from these harmful toxins. All of these foods that I have listed above need to be consumed regularly and not just a few times. You will not have the healing effect if you don’t stay dedicated. One more food type that is great for detoxication is leafy greens. Anything that has a big green leaf will help your body to clean itself, that’s why I suggest adding these leaves to your diet. Try putting them inside a soup that way you don’t have to deal with the taste.

If you are a type of person who likes to go out with his friends to hang out at some club, while enjoying some really unique tasking and looking cocktails, then we might have something in common. One issue that some people are having, that I realized when they need to order a drink, they don’t know which one to choose because none of them are familiar to them. If you don’t know anything about cocktails, then you will most likely have a hard time figuring out which drink to order. However, you don’t need to worry about it anymore because I am here to help you out by educating you about some of the most exotic cocktails in the world that you simply must try out.

Lychee Martini


Every cocktail that you see will be prepared differently, you can find some cocktails that are very similar tasting, but usually, they are served differently. One of the things that you must know about cocktails is that there are two major types women cocktails and men cocktails. When you go out with your guy friends, you don’t want to embarrass yourself by ordering a girly cocktail. If you are a woman, then a Lychee Martini is a great choice because it is served as a girly cocktail. This cocktail is a mix of vodka, lychee juice, and some vermouth.

Blue Lagoon

Blue LagoonIf you are all about trying out some new things every time that you visit a cocktail bar, then I recommend that next time you go try ordering a blue lagoon. This is a drink that you might have heard of because it is very popular, there is no person that I know who doesn’t like a blue lagoon. If you close your eyes for few seconds while you are drinking this cocktail, then you can experience the Caribbean waters. You need to let the drink take you away, and enjoy every little bit of it. This drink is a mixture of vodka and Curacao. Very simple drink, but unique tasting because of the curacao ingredient. The unique taste is coming from the Curacao island where a laraha fruit can be found.

Pina Colada
I present to you another very famous cocktail that many people like because of the unique and sweet taste. If you like the smell or the taste of rum, then this is the perfect cocktail for you because it has a mixture of 2 different rums. White and dark rum are combined with pineapple juice and a little bit of coconut cream. All of this when mixed together gives you the taste that you will never forget. This drink is the official cocktail of Puerto Rico and they say that this drink is just for people that know how to spell FUN.Pina Colada

Losing weight can be extremely hard and complicated process for some people, especially when they have to lose a lot of extra weight. However, if you put enough dedication and knowledge into it, everyone can do it. I get asked a lot of times what is the best weight loss food because I have a lot of knowledge about it, so I decided that I will help out everyone that wants to start a diet plan to lose weight. Having a proper diet plan can be enough to lose the amount of weight that you want, the key thing is to know exactly what you are supposed to eat and when. Once you have learned which food is good for your body, then you can start making your own diet plan. Until then, take a look at this short list about some of the best weight loss foods that you can try out.

Artichokes

Artichokes

Most likely you have heard about this vegetable before, but there is a high chance that you have never tried it. Food prepared with artichokes is not the most popular, but if you are searching for the best diet plan, then you must include this vegetable in your diet. It has a very high level of fiber, which is essential for your weight loss. I personally strongly suggest eating artichokes as an appetizer like as a salad before a bigger meal.

Avocados

AvocadoIf you are looking for a superfood, then avocados might be your solution. Avocados have a lot of important vitamins and other ingredients inside of them. These ingredients are so unique that they cannot be found easily in other foods. It can improve your vision, make your heart much healthier and reduce the risk of some dangerous cancers. Therefore, I suggest eating avocados even if you don’t want to lose weight because they are overall just a great fruit. That’s right, avocado is actually a fruit and not a vegetable as the majority of people might think.

Blueberries


When you want to have a diet plan to lose weight fast, then you need to search for foods that will cleanse your entire body from some toxins. Once your body has cleansed, you will be able to lose weight much faster. For that, I recommend that you start eating blueberries regularly because they contain a lot of antioxidants and fiber. They will also make your body feel full and energized for much longer time.
