In addition we need to consider physical activities we do everyday and based on what energy needed to perform such tasks effectively we can make our own nutrition table. Many recipes ranging from vegan and non vegan are available and today recipes tend to pay more attention on such balance.
Among ingredients contained in healthy foods are grains. Eating whole grains more often is very recommended by nutritionist since it helps us to feel fullness and key nutrients. We can also choosew foods for example fat free or low fat milk, cheese, yogurt and soymilk to support our bone strength.
In addition to these ingredients, the way we cook also matter. Some important nutrients may be damaged during preparation steps. That’s why eating raw food such as sushi ensure our body get enough nutrients. However we must bear in mind about hygiene of the raw foods.
Every culture has its own healthy foods to balance with their heavy and high calories food. India for example, as country with wellknown thick sauce, high saturated fat milk also presents numerous vegan dishes which are very supportive for our body.
