Choosing healthy and nutritious foods is very important. Most often we do not realize how important eating the right food is until it is too late. We spend hundreds of dollars each year eating out and putting all types of junk food in our body, before you know it, we looking in the mirror wondering how did we gain so much weight.
So, what can we do to promote eating healthy foods? It starts with educating the community about nutrition. That means we need to get educated about what we should and should not put in our bodies. It starts with learning the food pyramid. If that is too difficult than we get a food nutritionist to help us understand it better. The main thing is we take small steps to reach big goals.
I think it is true what they say “We should eat to live, not live to eat.” If you wake up in the morning thinking about what type of breakfast and lunch you are going to have then, you have a problem. We should all wake up thinking about how much exercise will we be able to get in and then what healthy foods, to choose after working out so hard.
We have options when it comes to the foods we put in our body. It we lived in a society where we could not grow our own fruits and vegetables then we might would have an excuse about not having access to healthy and nutritious foods. We cannot use that excuse because for most people whether you have a job or not, you can home grow healthy foods. Growing your own food cost a lot less than purchasing your items out of the grocery store. It is time for all of us to make a choice, that choice is to eat, live and be healthy.
