Simple Tips on Healthy Eating



Eating is a pleasure and I enjoy eating.  I want to eat and stay healthy.  Nobody should be stopped from eating as long as the food is not detrimental to one’s body.  Hence, it is important to know the art of healthy eating.  Thus here, I would like to share some simple tips on healthy eating.

Needless to say, what we eat has a strong impact on our wellness or illness.  Many illnesses or diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and obesity arose because of our failure to recognize the importance of healthy eating.  Even if we recognized, we failed to upkeep healthy eating.

Easy Healthy Eating Tips

Healthy eating requires discipline, consciousness and awareness.  Do I have to deprive myself of food in order to stay discipline?  Not at all.  Discipline does not call for deprivation of food but rather management.  Managing oneself of his/her habits of eating is the subject matter.

In fact, everything we do, need proper planning.  Likewise, healthy eating.  We have to plan what to eat, when is the best time to eat or not to eat and how do you eat to attain maximum benefits.  Hence eating is a conscious activity.  We don’t just grab anything reachable and flushed down our stomach.Healthy Food

In order to be conscious of what goes down our throat with maximum benefits, we need awareness.  Therefore, knowledge is a crucial factor to bring awareness.  How nutritious a food is, how should it be cooked or consumed so as not to lose its nutritional values, requires knowledge.  ( Does nutrient intake affect your health)

In addition, eating in moderation is a good practice to achieve healthy eating as extravagance is disastrous to our health.  In most cases, extravagance leads to illnesses or diseases.  On top of eating in moderation, it is recommended to eat in small portion.  But of course that small portion must be a source that contribute to balanced diet.  Our body needs substantial nutrients and calories for our organs to function effectively.  Lacking in nutrients and calories resulted in health disaster!

Rock Salt Benefits

The next tip is that  “rock salt”.

Do you know that a pinch of rock salt before starting a meal does a great job to our body?  Our body needs mineral and rock salt is one of the sources of minerals.  Rock salt is also an effective healer for food poisoning.

According to doctors, the initial treatment for food poisoning victim in hospitals is sodium chloride and of course one of the souces of sodium chloride is rock salt.

So remember to take that pinch of rock salt before eating your meal because that rock salt can prevent food poisoning.

Well if you look around, you will notice that there are people eating with forks and spoons,  some with chopsticks and others with their hands.

What is the secret behind eating with the right hand?

Take Care of Stomacheat with finger

For your information, scientists have discovered that our fingers release digestive juices and enzymes when in contact with food.  In fact, the moment our fingers touch the food, millions of nerves ending on the tips of our finger receive temperature and texture reading that is immediately send to the stomach.  This helps with the digestive process.  Also the release of the digestive juices and enzymes helps the bowel system thus ease constipation.

Another simple tip to help with the digestive process is to chew our food thoroughly before we allow it to go down the stomach.  This will surely reduce the pressure put on the intestine.

Improve Digestive System Naturallyfinger licking after eating

Before you clean or wash your hand after eating, make sure you practise the “finger licking after eating”.  Licking fingers produces more saliva which help to digest food faster.  But of course before you eat with your fingers, make sure you  wash your hands thoroughly.  Only then will you enjoy the benefits of finger licking after eating.

Well, these are some of the simple tips on healthy eating.  Simple and easy to practise.  Tips that could give great impact on our health. Do take advantage of these simple tips on healthy eating and start living a healthy life.

  2. Great article- the art of healthy eating – you are sooo right – it is an art and a lost art

    I had heard different types of clay are good for food poisoning, like bentonite clay or activated charcoal; never heard about rock salt, what about the inorganic minerals that some people say can’t be digested? Have you heard of pink salt, Himalayan salt ?

    • Hi Moz, glad I could share these simple tips on healthy eating with you. As health is important, sharing every little thing counts.
      You’re right, some used bentonite clay or activated charcoal for food poisoning.
      My suggestion was to practise a pinch of rock salt before starting a meal so as to prevent food poisoning.
      Well, Himalayan crystal salt is also commonly known as rock salt and is classified under inorganic minerals.
      Looking forward to more sharing, Moz.

  5. Norleila,

    There is so much excess in the ‘greedy part of the world’ that I agree totally with reducing size of meals etc.

    Have you ever noticed how, when you order at a restaurant, what you want to be, say a simple sandwich, you get instead a huge meal with a huge price to go with it! (The restaurant gets “fatter” but so do you!)

    Another habit I am trying is to half the amount in the cup, of the tea, coffee etc I have. Usually I still get more than enough, but with half the sugar and milk.

    I like your simple advice and nice site. Often simpler is better.

    • Hi Shawn,
      Very sad to see that on one part of the world there are so much excess and on the other, people hardly have food to eat. At the end of the day, both become unhealthy.
      Looking forward to a day, we practise all these natural, simple way of life. Thanks for your insights. Take care and stay well.

  6. Hey, Norleila, great post!

    That was so informative! I never knew some of those things before! My mom always taught me to eat with a fork! She would NEVER let me eat with my hands! I thought it was unsanitary to do so!

    On the other hand, my wife eats with her hands a lot! She grew up in Honduras, Central America, and that is a habit there! I thought she was disgusting for doing that! Turns out she is wiser, whether, or not she realizes it!

    Thanks so much for this information and keep up the good work!

    • Hey Donnie,
      Hope we could start with these simple tips on healthy eating as health is very important. What more with the alarming health statistics, we need to help ourselves.
      Your wife is sure being wise, knowingly or not.
      Thank you for your kind visit and contribution.
      Take care and good health to you always.

  7. Hi Norleila,

    This is great information and I am pleased you are sharing it. It brought back memories of a primary school teacher I had.

    He made us chew a piece of plain bread thirty times before swallowing it. By then the saliva had greatly increased and that bread tasted really sweet, like jam, and easily went down like a liquid.

    Thanks to your article here I am going to put more awareness into my eating habits!

    • Hey,hey Ben!
