The main purpose for eating is to maintain good health and have the energy we need to have an active lifestyle. That sounds so simple but it is far from simple for many people. So many factors affect how well we eat; knowledge, finances and time are probably key factors in determining how healthy our diet will be. Perhaps we should include one’s ability and desire to prepare food too!
Are you in control of your eating?
Those of us who enjoy eating have to be in control!
Those of us who eat because we are hungry have to be in control!
Those of us who don’t eat enough have to be in control!
Those of us who eat too much have to be in control!
There is a National Food Guide to help us make wise choices when planning meals and buying food. We have Canada’s Food Guide and our American neighbours have a very similar Food Guide Pyramid.
It definately takes time to plan meals, purchase groceries and prepare meals!
