Micro vs. Macronutrients

The closer your food is to it's natural state, the healthier it is! Some of you might not know the difference between micro and macronutrients. To sum it up the easiest way possible.

Micronutrients: your vitamins and minerals. Mainly found in plant foods, (fruit,veggies,seeds and beans) which are all beneficial and essential to ones health. It helps build muscles, and your immune system.

Macronutrients: is everything else. Proteins... Fats... And carbs

Nutrients are absorbed not in the order of their arrival in the intestine, but according to how fast they are broken down. Fats takes the longest to break down, that's why high fat foods keep you fuller longer.
