Good health comes down to three things, breakfast, lunch and dinner

(NaturalNews) By any measure, the world's health is failing. We spend far more on health care each year and very little on disease prevention. To make matters worse, we are leading our youth down a path of disease earlier and earlier in their lives. Kids are overweight or are at a risk of becoming overweight and are falling prey to a form of diabetes that used to be seen only in adults, and children now take more prescription drugs than ever before. What's the answer? It really is very simple: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

It is indisputable; breakfast is the most important meal of the day

Breakfast makes the biggest impact on your health; it is true medicine. Breaking the 'fast' after sleeping, we need energy to get going. Blood sugar can be low from fasting during the night. Wholegrains make the perfect breakfast by releasing energy slowly and keeping you on your toes all morning, because they are burned most efficiently as a fuel source. Miso soup is a great vehicle to nourish the spleen, which governs digestion, and is a wonderful alkalising food and perfect to start off your day. Beans are the most alkalizing form of protein, and as you know, miso is made from organic soy beans. Remember, only organic soybeans should be used; avoid GMO's. Green Juice is also a perfect start to the day, delivering incredible health benefits, or for the more adventurous of you, try some steamed greens.

What to do?

The simplest way to begin is by setting a direction for yourself and moving towards a goal that you feel is possible to reach. Write down the steps you need to take to get you there. Something like, "in three months' time, I will have a sugar, dairy and animal food free kitchen" (or whatever it is you desire). Check out your local supermarket and natural food store for healthy alternatives. Start reading labels. Many of the foods labelled 'healthy' have fructose, corn syrup and other forms of processed chemicals and additives, so anything with more than 3 or 4 ingredients in it is made by a chemist and not Mother Nature. Connect with people who are also eating a healthy diet.

It is not always possible to make an immediate change especially when families are involved who might have differing views. When shopping, start buying organic produce and sugar free jams, biscuits and juices. Slowly begin to replace the processed items with those of better quality such as sea salt, brown rice vinegar, sesame and olive and organic products.

You can't change your life, without changing your life

Try a new recipe each week that would appeal to your family such as noodles or fried rice once or twice a week with lots of tasty steamed or sauteed vegetables. Soups are always a popular choice. You can add miso to almost any bean or vegetable soup. You will be surprised how a small shift in direction will start to have great results. If your family are willing to try the new foods, they will also begin to change their diet naturally without it being forced upon them.

Change often seems more difficult than it actually is and the constant thinking about it is what gets us stuck. Once you create action by starting to put things into practice, life becomes much easier. Suggest to your family that they also become involved in this new way of eating and research the effect of food on their health.
