The Doctors welcome holistic nutritionist and health coach Maria Marlowe, who says a great way to clean and lighten your diet is to add more vegetables and plant-based foods to your diet. She also suggests swapping out a few meals containing meat each week and going vegetarian for certain meals.
She notes research has shown that eating a plant-based diet can improve someone's longevity and also lower a person's risk for health concerns like:
- Cardiac disease
If changing your diet sounds difficult or not very interesting, Maria suggests each week trying a new vegetable and a new spice. "When you go to the grocery store, pick up something you've never seen before and Google a recipe," she tells The Doctors.
Another area to clean is your snack drawer. Instead of reaching for processed foods, Maria suggests eating vegetable and fruit-based jerky, which are dehydrated fruits and veggies, sometimes with added spices. During the low-temperature cooking of jerky, most of the nutrition, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are preserved in the food. It also makes the flavor of the food concentrated and really pop.
Also, Maria says there's a new hot vegetable you'll want to try instead of kale -- and it comes from the ocean. In the video below, find how why kelp is being called "the new kale."
And if you are eating too many carbs lately, it is time to rethink what type of carbs you are consuming. Maria encourages us to try and eat as many natural carbs as possible and shares some creative ways to indulge your carb cravings by eating whole and unprocessed foods.
