Resilience: Eating Right, Eating Well

September 10, 2010

When you are really busy, sometimes it’s easier to just take vitamins, but paying attention to what you eat can keep you healthier.

World’s Healthiest Foods website has some good information about the importance of getting healthy foods into your diet, and describes some realistic ways to do this.

Essential nutrients are nutrients that your body can’t make on its own. How these nutrients are introduced into your body may have a great impact on how well they are utilized. Nutrients do not work alone but in concert (synergistically) with other nutrients. The benefit of deriving nutrients from eating fresh whole foods such as those included on the list of the World’s Healthiest Foods is that they provide not only an abundance of individual nutrients but also the variety necessary for their optimal function.

This weeks’ HEALTHbeat Extra from Harvard Medical School has an excellent article on the best ways to get essential nutrients from your diet.  The article is so well-written that I’m not going to try to summarize it here, but strongly recommend you check out the article yourself.
