My daughter posted a picture on FaceBook this week that sums up the chaos and confusion in the nutrition industry. I’ve attached it below…
There is evidence, even if it’s only anecdotal, that everything is good for you, and everything is bad for you. (Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING, but you get the point.) No wonder so many people don’t know what is the best option for health!
Here’s my thought on the matter… just eat REAL FOOD!!!
Stay away from the drive-thru’s, avoid the boxed food aisle at the grocery store, put down the frozen burrito!
Instead, shop the perimeter of the grocery store for fresh meats, fruits and vegetables. Or go to a farmer’s market to get local, seasonal options. Or even better yet, grow your own! Spring is finally here, so it’s the perfect time to plan your garden.
Here’s a question I like to consider when shopping for food… Could I grow and/or make this at home? Not will I, or do I know how, but could I. And if the answer is no, maybe it is best avoided. Especially if the answer is no because it contains a lot of chemicals and preservatives that you can’t even pronounce, much less make at home!
So, what is your favorite real food? And what food might you look at replacing?
Let me know if you have questions or want to talk about this further!
