Eating healthy can vary based on your reason for wanting to eat healthy, but generally means eating a variety of nutrient rich foods such as protein, vegetables whole grains and carbohydrates. We should all strive to eat healthy on a regular basis, but the truth is, most of us don’t pay much attention to what we eat until we find ourselves in a disease or painful state. If you are struggling with an illness or a disease, eating healthy can takes on a different meaning and level of strictness, and you will need to go far beyond the standard healthy meal plan. You will need to eat foods that are high in vitamins and nutrients, foods that heal and repair organs that have been damaged as a result of poor eating habits. This may including lots of fruits and leafy green vegetables with little to no meats. The makeup of the foods you include will be determined by the disease or diseases you are trying to heal.
