Healing food pyramid


The Healing Foods Pyramid’s base is water. Next are the multihued vegetables and fruits followed by healthy fats, eggs, grains, dairy products, legumes, fish or other seafood, and lean meats. Next are onions, herbs, and garlic, then trimmings which involve dark chocolate, tea and alcohol.

The Healing Food Pyramid gives every day voluntary choices which may be mingled properly and matched suitably for the people either vegetarian, out of health challenges, or having needful dietary requirements.

The food pyramid is developed for having healing advantages by consumption of essential nutrients. Contemporary eating habits are mainly dependent on foods, which are processed.  The pyramid recommends reduction of processed food and promotes natural food.  Healing guidelines include vegetables and fruits, and suggest 2 to 4 servings of fruit in a meal everyday with the accompaniment of at least 5 servings of vegetables in a day.

These healing foods are lesser in calorie count, but are rich in vitamins, phytochemicals, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Consumption of such food items may diminish the risk of heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and obesity to an amazing level, if followed as per the instructions of the Healing Food Pyramid.

Other guidelines include 64 to 96 ounces of water daily, four to eleven servings of grain daily, mainly whole grains, 2 to 5 servings of legumes daily, 3 to 9 servings of healthy fats, and seasonings with a different herbs, alliums and spices every day, one egg  daily  excepting people suffering from  high cholesterol problem( optional) ,2 to 4 servings  of fish and seafood weekly as these are rich in fatty acids omega-3, 1 to 3 servings of lean meats weekly (optional),  1 to 2 serving of alcohol daily considering the age and health history. Although alcohol consumption involves problems, but it reduces the chance of stroke resulted from the blocking of blood vessels and can also decrease the chance of heart attack and coronary artery disease.
