Making Health Science Simple

Visit HumanaNatura                                                 Like Us on Facebook

All of us live in modern times, but are from ancient ones. We are billions of years in the making, and have long-evolved natural needs and capacities that lead to and ensure our natural health and fulfilling life. When we live in harmony with our ancient nature today, our health and well-being increase. But when we live contrary to this nature – as we often do in our time for a variety of reasons – our health and quality of life reliably regress, as does that of the people we influence.

Through science, we now know that our natural health is really that straightforward in practice, implying a needed new synthesis of natural and modern life in many areas. We also know that we now have the opportunity in our science-rich times to expand upon and greatly progress our original natural health and vitality. Unfortunately, the science underlying our natural health and its new modern potential can be involved and complex.

An optimal modern natural diet explained simply via OurPlate

Unless we find ways to make key health principles simple and clear to everyone, many of us (and thus all of us) will live with lowered levels of health and quality of life than is possible in the modern age.

World’s Healthiest Cupcakes!

OurPlate Score: 8

There’s not much you can say about most cupcakes that is good from a health standpoint. After all, almost every ingredient that goes into them is unhealthy – carbohydrate and lectin-rich grains, health-destroying sugars, and artery-clogging fats. Cupcakes are small and cute of course, qualities that naturally minimize the amount of unhealthy food involved. But these qualities also prove extra-stimulating to our brains and make cupcakes harder for us to resist. To make this familiar modern food healthy, we really need to throw out all the ingredients and start from scratch, but can keep their appealing form and even use this appeal to encourage healthier snacking.

This  HumanaNatura variation on traditional cupcakes is a far healthier alternative, but keeps their appealing smallness and cuteness. Our “World’s Healthiest Cupcakes” begin with a base of chopped greens and then add an appetizing mix of natural foods and tastes, in this case parboiled broccoli bits, a small wedge of cucumber, a sliver or two of red onion, a few blueberries and pearl tomatoes, and a bit of chopped dates. The cupcakes are lightly dressed and finished with parsley, paprika, coriander, and black pepper. Have one anytime. Seconds or thirds? Sure, why not!

Spicy Sliced Pork Salad Meal!

Eating optimally the HumanaNatura  way and using HumanaNatura’s OurPlate guidelines couldn’t be easier. This delicious salad meal took minutes to prepare, uses simple ingredients, reflects our best science about healthy nutrition, and is a joy to serve and have at mealtime.

It begins with a cold-sliced and then gently re-warmed fillet of pork, one that was previously pan-cooked with red and black pepper, turmeric, ginger, and finely diced onion. This lean and spicy protein is combined with a generous bed of arugula, diced cucumber, orange wedges, quartered grape tomatoes, and just a bit of thinly sliced raw red onion. It’s a rich combination of tastes that is garnished simply with pistachios, parsley, coriander, and black pepper. A fast, attractive, satisfying, and extra healthy meal – enjoy!
