Everyone has access to healthy natural food but so many choose unhealthy alternatives. This is so ridiculous because healthy food is better in so many ways. It is more filling, sustaining, tastier, and better for your health.
Healthy food is readily available. Never before has there been such a choice. We are no longer limited by seasonal or geographical availability. You can have any type of fruit or vegetable anytime you choose.
Always buy fresh fruit and vegetables. Don’t buy food if it is wilted, bruised or discoloured. Some foods can make you unwell if they have deteriorated badly. Refuse to accept anything but the best quality.
Fresh, uncooked fruit and vegetables are best but if you prefer to cook your food, cook it lightly for the best nutritional quality as some vitamins are destroyed by heat. Try different foods and try combinations of different foods. Fruit and vegetables can be combined for unusually surprising results. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
There are many health-oriented cookbooks available. Your local newsagent or supermarket has many magazines devoted to healthy food preparation. The popular magazines have lots of ideas, hints and information. You can follow the recipes exactly or you can adapt them to your own tastes. The internet is a great resource for recipes and information on what is available and what to do with it.
You should be able to please everyone with fresh, healthy food. There are so many choices. There are sweet, tart, crunchy, crisp, bland and spicy choices. You can add herbs and spices to come up with even more variety. Don’t limit yourself to salt and pepper. Try different types of cuisine, for example, Cajun or French.
Mediterranean or Japanese cultures traditionally ate natural foods and until they adapted their diets to the Western style, they lived long healthy productive lives. Try using some of their traditional recipes regularly.
Try to eat healthy meals regularly, saving the trips to the fast food establishments for special occasions for the children. You may be surprised to find the children asking to go less often. After a while, their taste buds adapt and they find the taste of the takeaway food less pleasant. They will also develop healthy eating habits and will be less likely to lose them when they grow up. You could be responsible for their healthy eating habits for life.
