Healthy recipes, understanding the concept is knowing that what you eat has an enormous effect on your health. “Food is our greatest drug. It can be used incorrectly and cause great problem or when used correctly, will protect your health. By eating healthy recipe and exercising moderately, it is possible to reduce significantly chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, and cancers.
But what should a healthy recipe contain? We have to be conscious that every time we eat, we are making informed and good choice of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat.
What Carbohydrate Makes Healthy Recipes
Carbohydrates are in other words long chains of sugars. After consumption and digestion, they enter in the body at various rates. The difference between a good and a bad carbohydrate is the impact on the glycemic index.
Glycemix index is the rate of how fast the levels of sugar in the blood increase after consumption of a particular carbohydrate. White bread, white flour, pasta, and rice are high-glycemic because they release very quickly their sugar in the blood. Using less of them is a good choice for healthy recipes.
Examples of good carbohydrate are cauliflower, beans, asparagus, apples, oranges, and grapes. They release their sugars more slowly and thus prevent the blood sugar levels from spiking.
If you want a suggestion for low glycemic formula, I would recommend you MOA, a proprietary, nutrient-rich blend of 36 superfoods and superfruits combined developed by ARIIX.

Proteins – Source of essential amino acids in Healthy recipes
Amino acids are a group of essential nutrients for our body’s functions and present only in proteins. Therefore, protein is an essential part of healthy recipes. Dr Ray Strand, one the world respected specialist in nutritional and preventive medicine recommends protein sources in the following order:
Vegetable proteins are often criticised for not being complete but in fact, they are the best proteins. Nuts, legumes, and certain whole grains are some examples. For example, pulses like beans, peas, and lentils, are very good sources of protein with low fat and high fiber content.
Cold Water Fish
In addition of containing good source of proteins, they also provide good amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. Examples include salmon, mackerel, sardines, and tuna.
The advantage of chicken and turkey is that fat generally accumulate in the outside of meat rather than inside and can be easily remove before cooking.
Nutrition specialists recommend less red meat is ranked low because saturated fat tends to marble inside the meat. Use small cuts along with low glycemic vegetables.
The least desirable source of protein according to Dr Strand. They have the highest concentration of saturated fats.
As part of its weight management program, ARIIX proposed PureNourish, a formulation that uses proteins derived from plants as opposed to animal proteins as the sole source of protein, allowing for easier digestion.
