Hello friends. Sorry, I forgot to post yesterday, so here we go on Thursday this time. Today I want to show you one of the videos where I get my information from that I present to you. Today I want to not tell you what I learned by watching the video, I want to show the video directly to you, because I don´t think I can summarize it any further. I am also thinking about doing this more often because I think that M. Greger can explain some things much better to you than I can. Anyway: Enjoy this video about nuts and their amazing ability to burn calories while you eat them:

Have a good time, may the Force be with you.

Hallo friends.

To conclude our conversation about nuts and seeds: how much nuts or seeds should we eat in one day? Well, it seems that the best option would be to eat at least 30 g of nuts or seeds out of the list I posted 2 weeks ago OR 2 tablespoons of unsweetened nut butter.

Next week we are going to talk about the last of the nutrients I want to tell you about: whole grains. If we truly stick to a plant based diet, this is the stuff that delivers our calories for the day, that make as full and satisfied.

But Wellness Wednesday is not going to end after this chapter, we are still gonna talk about how much water we should drink in a day and how much exercise we are supposed to do.

And after all this I am going to keep you up to date with the newest results of research concerning nutrition.

So, until next week,

May the Force be with you.

Hello friends.

So far we have talked about a lot of healthy stuff to eat, but finally we need something that makes us really full and satisfied. I don´t know what you think, but I can eat a lot of vegetables and fruit, but that doesn´t make me full for more than a few hours. But – whole grains – are on the one hand healthy and on the other hand they make us full for several hours and satisfy very well. In this series I want to first start about what whole grains are and how much we should ideally eat of them each day, and next week I am going to show you why it is a good idea to eat them.

So what are whole grains? Here we go:

Barley,
Buckwheat,
Millet,
Oats,
Popcorn,
Quinoa,
Rye,
Teff,
Whole-wheat pasta.

We are looking for the “whole grain”, so no refined wheat or anything!

How much should we eat ideally each day:

3 serving sizes

What is ONE serving size:

100 g hot cereal or cooked grains, pasta, or corn kernels
50 g cold cereal
1 tortilla or slice of bread
½ a bagel or English muffin
30 g popped popcorn

Yes, even popcorn is a very good idea! Great to hear isn´t it?

So, until next week!

May the Force be with yall.
