Top 10 easiest ways to improve your health

I was recently asked what my top 10 health tips are, so here it is… what’s good to eat, what’s not, and HOW TO EASILY IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH WITH JUST A FEW CHANGES.
The thing is EATING DOESN’T NEED TO BE STRESSFUL. It’s actually a really great way to express yourself creatively. It’s not meant to be overwhelming, neither is exercise.
What we help you do at MEDIMOVE is INTEGRATE HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE CHOICES INTO YOUR LIFE WITH EASE – using whole foods, not shakes and capsules! 🤦‍♀️
So here it is community, your stepping stone to creating those HEALTHIER CHOICES. THE TOP 10 EASIEST WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH:
  1. Substitute potato for roast pumpkin and cauliflower – low GI, low fat and high in electrolytes
  2. Make dark chocolate at home using 1:1 ratio of cacao: coconut oil/cacao butter, add honey, nuts, nut butter and/or essential oils to flavour and freeze in moulds
  3. Heating olive oil turns it into a saturated fat, use coconut oil for cooking and olive oil for salads and homemade dips
  4. Almond meal is great substitute for flour, it’s gluten free and will lower your cholesterol
  5. Use avocado instead of butter – its improves brain function, and actually lowers your cholesterol, rather of increasing it.
  6. Drink soda water with alcohol, to lower the sugar content and reduce the hangover. Also approximately 3 small glasses of red wine a week, helps to lower your blood pressure!
  7. Eat or drink a carbohydrate and protein blend of food, within 30 mins – 2 hours after exercise, to replenish your muscles faster and reduce DOMS. E.g.: protein powder and fruit smoothie, or cottage cheese or nut butter on rice crackers, or hummus and celery.
  8. Substitute dairy milk for almond or coconut milk. You can get more calcium from eating leafy green veggies, than you can from cow’s milk. Plus, it’s not sustainable for our environment to continue drinking cow’s milk at the rate we are.
  9. Lower your meat intake to once per week to lower your cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, and limit the impact on the environment. Kangaroo meat is the most sustainable, is the highest in Iron and the lowest in fat.
  10. Eat seeds or RAW nuts when you’re peckish, they lower your cholesterol, increase brain function, and are great added to salads or smoothies.
This is your starting block. The truth is, you will get faster, MORE EFFECTIVE RESULTS when you USE these dietary changes IN COMBINATION WITH EXERCISE. I wrote a blog on exercise guidelines last year, click here to recap on that. This that help with motivation are to get out in nature, grab a mate to walk with, do some yoga at home… JUST MOVE. It really is THE BEST MEDICINE!

 

I hope you found this helpful, I can’t wait to see your results!
