Why Is A Balanced Diet Important?

Our body needs a balanced diet as a source of the nutrients we need to maintain good health, and to quite simply, help us function properly. To achieve a healthy and balanced diet, we need to get calories from a variety of different food sources. Healthy foods to eat include fresh vegetables, fruit, lean proteins, good fats and whole grains. All of the nutritional information can be found on the Green Chef recipe cards. This way, you know that you’re on the right track with the best nutrients to help maintain a healthy equilibrium, meaning that your body is working in sync and perfectly balanced.

<h2>Healthy Diet Plan</h2>

Healthy Diet Plan

The key to starting a healthy diet plan is to establish a routine that you’ll be able to maintain easily. When planning your healthy meal plan for the week ahead, you should consider:

  • Five a day: Try to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day.
  • Fibre: Include healthy, high fibre ingredients into your meals, such as rice, pasta and potatoes.
  • Protein: A healthy meal plan will include high protein foods, such as beans, pulses, fish, eggs and meat. Don’t worry if you follow a vegan diet, there are plenty of high protein vegan foods to enjoy too!
  • Dairy: Dairy or dairy alternatives (such as soya or oat milks) are an essential part of a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of fluids, mostly water, alongside your healthy meals.
  • Treats, in moderation: Following a healthy diet plan doesn’t mean giving up on the little treats you love, such as sugary snacks and pastries. Just make sure to eat them in moderation and balance out with healthy alternatives!
    With Green Chef recipe boxes, enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that everything you need for a healthy diet plan will be delivered each week - no need for last-minute trips to the supermarket where snack temptation could get the better of you.
