These days, one of the most famous books in America is “How NOT to die?” by D-r Michael Greger. This book also becomes popular in the whole world. D-r Greger is an expert in food safety, public health and nutrition. He managed to discover which 6 ingredients we should intake every day so that we can protect ourselves from all the serious diseases. We are all aware that numerous have become a real epidemic and can even lead to death. Some of them include diabetes,heart diseases, and cancer.
According to this doctor, the greatest secret of medicine is to know what to eat or drink so that your body can cure itself and you become healthy and energetic!
Some of the most important leguminous plants include chickpea, lentils, soy,dried halves of green peasas well as all types of beans. You may not think that peas soup and dipping carrots in some hummus (chickpea spread) can be useful, but you also intake leguminous plants this way. Make sure you eat at least 3 portions of leguminous plants a day. One portion can be tofu, a quarter of a cup of hummus, lentils, a full cup of fresh peas or sprouted lentilsor half a cup of cooked beans. Peanuts are also leguminous plants although technically, but doctor Gregerputs them in the category of nuts (because of their nutritive value).
One portion of berries should be about half a cup of fresh or frozen berries. If you take them dried, take a quarter of a cup. Biologically speaking, watermelons,banana and avocado belong to the group of berries. They are all the small eatable fruits. Here, we’ll also add grapes and raisins. Many people also consider these fruits as berries, although technically they are not: cherries, blueberries, cranberries, mulberriesandstrawberries.
In this group we include Swiss chards, broccoli, borecole, kaleand cabbage. Greger recommends taking at least one portion (half a cup) of these plants a day, no matter if they are herbaceousorleafy.
We should all eat at least 1 teaspoon of ground flax seeds a day, but make sure you also intake a portion of other nuts or seeds. A quarter of a cup of nuts would be enough for one portion. If you like butter (for example, peanut butter), don’t eat more than 2 tablespoons in one meal. Nutritiously,chestnut and coconut don’t belong in the group of nuts.
Doctor Gregerclaims that you can use any spice you like. He recommends a quarter of a tablespoon of curcuma, but you should avoid using salt.
Whole grain cereals
Eat whole grain cereals to have longevity! For example, half a cup of boiled rice, quinoa,warm oatmeal, or buckwheat, a cup of cold cereals (the ones you buy at the stores), boiled pasta and corn, half a bagel or muffin,a tortilla or a piece of integral bread,three cups of popcorn etc.
