Last week we talked about the benefit of drinking pure, clean water, and this week we will talk about the most wonderful Joy of Healthy Living: Real Delicious Food. So many people think that being healthy shorts them of great tasting food, but it’s actually the opposite. Go through any fast food window and you will most likely end up with a combination of a fatty meat, a starchy bread, and a possible fried side. You may even go crazy and add cheese!
There is so much more available than such a mundane existence. Fresh flavors, tasty fruits and berries, delicious lean, well-seasoned meats, and scores of exotic produce to spice up any meal. So instead of eating a bunch of processed food, let’s look at some healthy, delicious food instead.
So what is real food? Just that: real food; not something out of a box with a list of ingredients 10 lines long. When you think about eating, think about real food. Don’t pick up apple chips; eat apples. Don’t eat potato chips, eat potatoes. Don’t eat soup in a can, eat vibrant, tasty vegetable stew that’s simmered on a stove. There is a whole world of delicious food out there that doesn’t taste like it came out of a box.
So many people think they have to get on a healthy “diet”, but it’s not about limiting yourself. It’s about expanding your enjoyment and potential. It’s about getting out of a rut. If you eat at the same fast food place every day – that’s limiting. Try something new – try a diet with lean, delicious meats, new and different vegetables roasted to perfection, some whole grain bread, and finish it off with a nice melody of berries and fruit.
Experience all that life has to offer by getting off the packaged food and into a healthy eating plan.
