The Food Pyramid
A healthy lifestyle includes quality of rest, reduction of stress and a good diet. In this segment Marina Cortese – Registered Holistic Nutritionist, takes us through the recommended food pyramid; the Nour-ish.ca way. In a beautiful kitchen designed by Paula Kerr and her interior design firm “Your Home Design”, Marina stresses the importance of fruits and veggies and encourages fitting as many vegetables as possible into your diet. Conversely she addresses complex carbohydrates such as starches’ and grains should be kept to a minimum to avoid blood sugar spikes. A side tip is that in order to reduce bloating from carbs, wheat free alternatives are a welcomed avenue to still feel full while providing easier digestion. Protein provides the building blocks of each life stage and immune system support. It can be found in many meat alternatives or in healthy organic non vegetarian forms such as organic fish, chicken and eggs. Once all of your ingestion needs are met… don’t hesitate to indulge a little! Be happy, healthy and stay awesome!
