You are what you eat. I say this because as a proud vegan, nutrients from the foods you eat provide the foundation, structure, function, and integrity of every little cell in your body. From your skin and hair to your muscles, bones, digestive and immune systems, food is a self-serving guide to the human body. One should always be cautious about the food and the things they allow into their body.
To help guide you, here are a few tips & notes.
A balanced diet or balanced plate is one that gives your body the nutrients it needs to function correctly. To get the proper nutrition from your diet, you should consume the majority of your daily calories in: fruits, vegetables, grains, liquids, proteins, etc. If you consume more calories than your body can take, may lead to severe health risk. Having a balanced plate means that you acknowledge your dietary needs and restrictions. You should always consume foods that are low in fats, and sugars. Eat foods that are high in vitamins, mineral and other nutrients.
If you are traveler, be extra careful what you eat.
Travel tip: Always carry multivitamins with you.
