Balanced nutrition should not be viewed as a too difficult task to master, it does take some time and planning. Time to plan a shopping list that has all nutritional needs covered, that includes the major food groups initially, and from there keep refining the list for personal needs.
It may start from several fruit types, five vegetable types (fresh or frozen), oils and fats, I use real butter and good oils, protein needs, dried fruit and nuts, fish, chicken or red meat, can of tuna is better than missing out on protein altogether, sometimes out of convenience it is a good idea to stock up on tinned fish products. Maybe because you are too busy, going away for the weekend, camping, road trip whatever, wholemeal rye bread, salad and a tin of tuna can go a long way.
“Nutrition is the selection of foods and preparation of foods, and their ingestion to be assimilated by the body. By practicing a healthy diet, many of the known health issues can be avoided. The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the perceived palatability of foods”
“A healthy diet is one that helps maintain or improve general health. A healthy diet provides the body with essential nutrition: fluid, adequate essential amino acids from protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and adequate calories. The requirements for a healthy diet can be met from a variety of plant-based and animal-based foods”.

Here is the reasoning behind Dr. Joel Wallach optimized Nutrition Mission to the world as stated on the website Wallach online states: http://www.wallachonline.com/products/index.htm
We cannot get all the vitamins and minerals we need for metabolic competence from the standard three meals a day.
When the body has been assaulted by stressors, drugs, pollutants, injury or sickness, nutrients are lost more rapidly than normal and if they are not replaced, the victim’s ability to withstand stressors or fight off disease is reduced.
We use so many labor-saving devices that we need fewer calories. As food intake is reduced, it is nearly impossible to get all the nutrients we need without taking supplements.
Pollutants in the air, food & water put a stress on all of us. As a result, we require more vitamins and minerals to support the enzyme systems which aid in discharging these unwanted toxins.
Those sweet, “empty calorie” foods we eat rob the body of the nutrients required for digestion and absorption. In addition, food sensitivities and yeast infections damage intestinal lining cells so that even when we do eat nutrient dense food, absorption is limited.
There are skeptical unbelieving people in the world that make a living out of being a skeptic; there is a place in the heart of the human personality for: genuine good will, good faith, belief, morality, agreement, reasoning, values, logic and rational natural healthy living. Some people will not believe anything that is outside of their circle of interest, experience or pleasures. They may have a long addictive habit of smoking cigarettes, initiated during the early teenage years at college, by a particular social group peer pressure. Initially a social pressure, which became a social status in a group, perceived as being “desirable cool”. The fine tuning balance of the human body with the eleven organ systems to regulate and to maintain the body functioning in a healthy state as a unit was completely disregarded at that point in time. Social creatures behaving as the herd, without thinking rationally about the long-term health consequences. After 10, 20, 30 or more years of smoking tobacco cigarettes, an unbelieving skeptic may argue that there is no evidence to support that regular smoking has been a waste of money or that it is a negative undesirable habit. They may argue for the intoxicating sensation to the nerve center that a fresh dose of nicotine in the veins produces, but it is a subjective physical sensational experience that the person has become addicted to, defending their personal addiction.
Balanced nutrition with a natural perspective
Balanced nutrition and the health needs to be looked at from a neutral perspective, what is in the best interest of the person or animal overall. Dr Joel Wallach extensive experience as a veterinary doctor seeing and recording with his own eyes how birth defects and abnormalities were at times or places common amongst nutrient deficient birth givers, and they were not genetic as wrongly often assumed. One such proven example told in a Dr. Joel Wallach YouTube video the was that a birth defects with Arctic fox male and female pair, it occurred every time over many years, but the defects were always a different defect. The problem was fixed by supplementing the diet with a well-balanced diet of minerals and vitamins. The arctic foxes started giving birth to healthy pups over and over as long as the diet was well balanced and healthy for the fox couple. This long career in the veterinary discipline has given Dr Joel Wallach an insight into the important role that nutrition has, because it is common knowledge among the stock breeders of livestock that it is very costly to have a poor birth rate. In case, you did not know or realize this but the food that people enjoy eating in a restaurant or even buying it at the local butchers that are all young animals, the lambs are only about eight to sixteen weeks old 2-4 months. Many people gloat with pleasure when they discover how tender and soft the meat of young cow veal is but they give no thought to the fact that they are eating a baby cows meat.
A lot of research has been done to improve the rate of healthy stock being born, in all farm animals imaginable, from chicken, ducks, and geese to goats, pigs, cattle, and horses. Healthy farm animal births mean consistent revenue for the farmers business. According to Dr Joel Wallach the stock animal industry has eliminated hundreds of diseases and defects from the farm stocks over the last hundred years. The use of mineral and vitamin supplements with the farm animals has been scientifically proven to work, they have a track record that proves the results, and better health is produced by providing the farm animals a well-balanced nutritional diet.
I am also a strong believer of free eggs, I never buy battery eggs, and never consciously buy Veal even after being in the commercial cookery industry over 20 years, I don’t accept mistreatment of animals, and producing baby animals just so that they can be eaten at the “Baby” stage is immoral in my opinion. It does not respect the natural gift of life. Maybe eating chicken eggs is also immoral in that sense, I think it immoral for those people that don’t make the world a better more morally responsible place. Everyone has to start somewhere, to carry responsibility and to be morally responsible. To sacrificing a lifetime, to use others to make money and not to give anything back, by influence or sharing ideas that others may benefit is too common in our greedy world of selfish gain. What I perceive from the materials that I have listened and watched Dr. Joel Wallach is not one of those people that has a mission for selfish gain, his has genuine compassion to help others get a natural healthy quality of life by providing information and resources to mineral and vitamin supplements, and giving lectures on the importance of a healthy balanced nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
