What you feed your body during each meal can affect how you feel, your mood, your health and confidence. It can even affect your performance. Don’t eat a heavy meal full of carbohydrates before you go for a job interview. You may end up becoming sluggish and sleepy because of the food breakdown processes going on in your stomach and intestines, the focus of blood flow would be to your stomach and related areas rather than to your brain.
On the other hand eating fruits and veggies, drinking a small amount of coffee, and eating a small amount of carbohydrates can help you to stay alert, focused and ready -to-go, when you go for an interview or presentation. The other thing to remember is that you will feel physically better when you eat smart and healthy. You will also be able to sleep better, have more energy, and greater immunity to fight off infections.
You have to remember that the more healthy you make each meal the more your body will be able to fight off illness. You will also gain less weight and stay more emotionally and spiritually uplifted. You don’t have to drastically change your meals to make them better. One of the easiest and smartest ways to make your food more healthy is to simply add more healthy food and nutritious options to each meal.
You can do to do this by adding chia seeds to your meal. You can add chia seeds to any meal you are eating. You can add it to your yogurt, to your soup, salad and your drinks. It is an ancient way of increasing your food fiber and nutritious food value. The more nutrients you provide by healthy food choices and additions to your meal, the more you can keep your mind strong and clear. This will put you in a better position to exercise when you want to and pursue your daily goals with less limitations and set backs.
What do you do before eating any meal? First check your food size or portion.
You can begin with half the portion offered in the menu or half the serving size other people are eating. You can always add more or simply top it up with nuts and fruits after the meal.
Finally ask yourself if you are making good decisions by the food choices you make during each of your daily meals. Which meal is most challenging you? What is the worst food you eat each day? Can you make better choices. I used to eat many slices of bread and soda with each of my daily meals. I decided to make more healthy food choices out of fear of gaining too much weight or un-intentionally developing nutrition-related illnesses like diabetes, heart disease or high-blood pressure. Fear of un-intended health consequences from bad food choices made me become more vigilant with each meal? What about you?
