Wild Zora creates truly healthy gluten-free snacks that you can feel confident to feed to your family. In the interest of helping you start -- or continue -- to eat with nutrition in mind, we’ve put together a list of the benefits of a healthy diet. Some may really surprise you!
Top 5 Benefits of Eating Healthy:
You will be happier and less stressed. What we eat affects our brain, and certain foods can increase good hormones and/or moderate detrimental ones. For example, kale contains a plant-based omega-3 called ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid), which helps lower risk of depression and decrease anxiety. And the folic acid found in spinach supports serotonin regulation, a key contributor to feelings of well-being and happiness.
You will maintain the weight you want -- or lose if you need to. Eating less bread, starch and sugar and more meats and vegetables will help you reach -- and maintain -- a healthy weight. With this type of diet, you reduce your carb intake, minimize cravings and feel more satisfied from less food. Everyone’s healthy weight range is different, so make sure to talk to your doctor about what is best for you.
You will reduce your risk for heart disease and high blood pressure. Trading processed junk food for fresh fruits, veggies and meats will lower your risk of heart disease. It will also help regulate or prevent high blood pressure -- a serious and common ailment that can lead to heart disease.
You will be at lower risk of getting cancer. Your lifestyle and diet affect your risk of getting cancer. Eating lots of fruits and veggies helps lower that risk.
- You’ll be more efficient. Foods with grain and added sugars lead to sudden spikes and drops in blood sugar levels which causes fatigue and puts you at risk of losing productivity. Choose healthy, gluten-free snacks for lasting energy.
