Our food should be our medecine and our medecine should be our food - Hippocrates


During my training in nutrition and dietetics we had to submit an advisory file, I was oriented towards naturopathic nutrition.


I would like to share with you what I have learned over the past few years. These tips are only ideas and must be adapted according to the person, the environment, the constitution, the age etc ...


Key points: nutritional rebalancing

  • Decrease sugar consumption

  • Increase the consumption of vegetables (favor organic and local)

  • Reduce the intake of bad fats in favor of good vegetable oils

Key points: health

  • Hydrate well

  • Prefer organic vegetables cooked al dente in gentle steam

  • Use raw organic oils from first cold pressing (olive, walnut, rapeseed, sesame, hemp, flax, etc.)

    • Warning: Only olive oil and goose fat can be cooked moderately, they must not smoke / darken

  • Alternate protein sources (animal proteins: fish, eggs, chicken, turkey, lamb and vegetables: legumes, soy)

  • Recommended vegetarian days (combine cereals with legumes: lentils with brown rice, corn with beans, millet with chickpeas)

  • MASTICALLY TO BETTER DIGERATE

  • Avoid eating in front of the TV. Enjoy the meal at the table

  • Promote exercise, a healthy lifestyle, sleep, walks in nature

  • Manage / avoid stress

  • Remember: Thoughts change the way our brain communicates with our body and can change body biochemistry, practice positive thinking

  • Treat yourself once a week with for example dessert / a weekend meal

Practical advice :


In the cupboard: rice, quinoa, buckwheat, flower bread

Fridge: coconut or goat yogurts, compotes (homemade), coconut cream (replaces the cream)

Freezer: uncooked vegetables (peas, beans, mixed vegetables, zucchini, etc.), fish (best to eat fresh food)

At the restaurant: simple dishes: grilled or steamed fish, roasted or grilled meat, stew, seafood platters, salad


Health supplements:


Pomegranate rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory

Turmeric (+ pepper): anti-inflammatory and digestion

Garlic and onion: help fight digestive infections

Green tea: antioxidant and helps restore the tightness of the intestinal mucosa, 'fat burner'

Fatty fish: rich in omega-3

Ginger: shape and tone

Ginseng: shape, tone, stress

Peppermint: digestion, refreshment, tonic

WHERE TO START?

Promote organic food, local products. Eat mindfully, with respect, especially animals.


Everything is poison, nothing is poison: it is the dose that makes the poison. "Paracelsus"

Eat in moderation and above all WITH PLEASURE!

FOOD

Today we are living in an increasingly stressful society with difficult access to organic food that respects nature.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

I worked for 15 years for the industry as an engineer in a company interested more in performance than in the well-being of employees. Working 100%, it seemed difficult for me after work to go to a local farm or go to the local markets. Living in an apartment, I couldn't have my own vegetables either, but I didn't feel like consuming junk food: vegetables coated with pesticides and industrial meat that consumed a lot of antibiotics.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

So I started to educate myself and look for alternatives.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

For example, I order the organic basket from a local association that works with farms in the region. It can be more expensive, which is why I am more careful not to throw the food away. By making, for example, soups, juices with the rest of the vegetables. I eat little meat and when I eat it I take quality meat: organic and animals that have been outside. Respect for the animal is important to me.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

I also try to buy my products from local merchants and avoid big box stores. I also admit that I am not a great cook, which is why I use easy and practical recipes that I share in another article.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

I would also like to share with you some of my reading that opened my eyes:

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

For example The book "Eat, chronicles of a wild animal in the food jungle" by Gilles Lartigot which I recommend.

Gilles talks to us about living and organic food, intensive breeding and the toxic society in which we live, through interviews with experts in the field.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Some points that touched me:

- good and less good foods: watch out for refined sugars, food additives and oils loaded with omega-6 (recommended proportion: three omega 6 for one omega 3) Try instead: miso, wheatgrass juice, fresh herbs, raw honey, plants, garlic, turmeric ....

- be careful, the more inexpensive the meats, the more industrially fattened the animals and stuffed with transgenic corn and soybeans, antibiotics, vaccines and hormones.

- a controversial subject, dairy products: milk contains a lot of hormones, pesticides ... In addition, cows are inseminated from the age of 15 months with frozen sperm, in gestation for 9 months and their offspring their will be removed only 2-3 days after calving. After 5 to 6 years of this hellish treatment, they will end up in the form of minced meat.

-the conditions in the slaughterhouses: not only the animals but the employees. The animals are stressed, the standards are hardly respected, the employees are also stressed (slaughter every minute). More than a billion animals are slaughtered in France each year: a veritable infernal cycle.
