That is a heavy title, right? What is the right food and what is the right time? Let’s find out!
Who doesn’t love snacks? Mid-day snacks or evening tea snacks; the midnight snacks are favorites! What time of the day do you like to have snacks?
Snacking is one of life’s great pleasures, and it can be a healthy way to bridge the gap between meals. But the timing matters just as much as what we put in our bodies – eating too close together or late at night can result in digestive troubles or even an increased risk for chronic health problems down the line. As they say: “Eat your breakfast like a king, lunch like a common man, and dinner like a beggar.”, so start your day with plenty nutritious high fibre foods and keep snacks light throughout the rest of your wakeful hours.
This famous saying depicts the right amount of food you have to eat as the day goes on. Our digestive system needs more time to digest food when we sleep and fatty food takes the longest time to digest compared to high fibre food; essentially if you’ve eaten a cheeseburger at lunchtime, your body is still trying to digest it when you sleep off at night. When food gets stored in the body for longer periods, it turns toxic; and random mid-day snacks which are low in nutrition cause a plethora of problems.
We all know, nutrient rich food is the right kind of food which is good for health. This is mainly because it not only has a wide range of essential macro and micro-nutrients but also fibre. It is easy to digest, protects the body from bad cholesterol, improves energy and mood, and prevention of certain diseases. The exact opposite happens when we eat unhealthy, greasy, carb-rich, and fatty food. When we eat ‘bad food’ it creates an imbalance in the body and that leads to a lot of health problems and that is why we have to be careful about what we eat and when we eat it.
Time of consumption is just as important, as our body reacts differently to different foods at different times. Eating healthy doesn’t only mean eating boiled vegetables and raw fruits, you can have your favourite food, but the key is to know when and at what frequency is it allowed. Incorporating 5 servings of raw fruits, vegetables and leaves every single day prevents us from making the wrong food choices. Nutrient rich food keeps us satiated for long time.
Our body is a very powerful tool; only if we know how to nurture it in the right way. Giving your body all the nutrients is necessary but knowing when to give them is also important. Consistency is the key to success whether in life or being in optimal health. Eating the right food at the right time is key to maintaining your energy throughout the day and reaching your health goals.
