Protective Foods by Paramhansa Yogananda

To maintain the highest state of health and an abundant supply of energy, along with a high resistance to infection of all kinds, it is necessary to have an adequate daily supply of all the vitamins and mineral salts. Luckily the same foods supply both and they are called the “protective foods” because they protect you from the deficiency diseases which have been discussed separately under the individual vitamins. You can make up your own list of protective foods by referring to the lists given with the vitamins.

It is the home maker’s duty to prevent the troubles due to nutritional deficiencies by properly planning menus which supply all of the necessary food elements. If such a condition exists in your family do not try to treat it yourself, but consult an expert who will prescribe the particular diet necessary. Of course, now that you know some of the basic facts about nutrition, you will plan your menus so that they will be varied, interesting, appetizing, and nutritious, and will keep your family in the pink of condition.

Next week we will give a chart of the vitamins and protective foods so that they may be selected easily.
