I often talk about exercise and how important it is for health and not just for weight loss. The same is SO true of healthy eating. While I believe we all inherently know we should eat better, in our superficial culture, we are often so focused on the numbers on the scale, we overlook the real reason we should be eating well.
Eating well simplified:
More fruits and vegetables
More whole grains
Minimize sugar and sugar substitutes
Carbohydrates in moderation
Why? (Even if you don’t need to lose weight.)
— AND OF COURSE, healthy eating promotes improved long term health
Next time you are in the food store, focus on your overall health and the health of your family rather than calories, and your pantry will be stocked with the recipe for a happier, healthier, more energetic life.
