“The preparation and consumption of good food improves mental well-being and therefore physical health.” ~ Mark Bittman, How To Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food.
Consider adopting his motto for eating for health:
“I eliminate nothing from my diet except bad food—by which I mean most “fast” food, most “convenience” food, and all “microwavable” food. I eat everything I’m offered at least once.“
So, you make your own decisions, but here are some basic things to consider in order to eat healthy:
Call to Action:
- Eat lots of fruit and vegetables (fresh, raw is best in most cases)
- Minimize your intake of fat, especially fat that is solid at room temperature.
- Eat a wide variety of foods, all in moderation.
Mr. Bittman goes on to say his doctor thinks he’ll live to be 100 (he hopes so, but doesn’t think so), although he doesn’t think food is going to kill him. Is the food you’re eating on a regular basis going to kill you?
To your good health,
