Eating enough nutrients might feel hard because take a look at how many there are:
Vitamines: VitE, D, K, A, B12, B6, C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Biotin,
Minerals: Magnesium, Calcium, Natrium, Chlorid, Potassium, Iron, Fluorid, Zinc, Manganese, Selenium, Copper, Chrome, Phosphors,
omega-3-fatty acids, fibre, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, CLAs
And what are you: a man, a woman, a child, pregnant, breast feeding, very old?
Nutrients are a very complex subject for a nutritions and we do this as a job. We are not just only interested in those numbers, we work with them.
I could tell you that broccoli contains a lot of Vit C, Bs, K and Folat but also potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. If you want to increase the amount of iron your body absorbs, you add more VitC of a lemon for instance. But broccoli has no fat. So you must eat flaxseed oil to eat enough omega-3-fatty acids. Oh, sorry, you don’t like broccoli or flaxseed oil.
Let’s stop right here.
It’s great when a nutritionist or dietitian can tell you which vegetables contains which nutrients. But nutrients are way too complicated, we could talk days about them and we all have different preferences. Let me give you advices that actually help you:
Advice #1 that actually helps you:
Eat real food. Vegetables, meat, eggs, rice, legumes and so on.
Eat a high amount of ingredients in one meal. I don’t mean to use food that has a long ingredient list. I mean to chose a lot of vegetables, herbs and spices frequently in one meal.
Change the ingredients frequently if not daily.
Eat legumes every other day.
This might feel overwhelming because a lot of our recipes don’t contain enough vegetables. Think of macaroni and cheese. You might feel like it is very difficult to eat enough nutrients.
I see you
and that is why I created Wisdom of food providing. This course gives you the fundamental structure to eat enough nutrients. It doesn’t matter which vegetables you like and don’t like to eat, it doesn’t matter what needs you have, if you are male or pregnant or have to feed kids as well. It teaches how to cook one meal in 30 minutes without prepping or planning anything. You also learn how to personalize the portions so everyone you have to feed eats enough.
I am not telling you this to sell my course, I am telling you this because I know how much you struggle with eating enough nutrients. The way to eat more is to cook. But cooking, food providing is a chore, that I hate as much as you do. I found my way to make it as efficient as possible. I don’t get frustrated about it anymore. So instead of giving you a bunch of other advices, I offer you true help that can change your life, too. If you let me, I show you how I do it.
