Over the past several years I have read some great books regarding the way we eat and how that affects our health. I glean great information from each one and try to implement that into the way we eat. The latest diet and health fads will come and go, but I believe in eating and thoroughly enjoying all of the good things that are made for food, while keeping two things in mind:
- Eat in moderation
- Eat everything as close to its natural form and organic when possible
For our family, this means that while we eat healthy foods, we do not limit ourselves to a boring, lifeless diet. In fact, our diet includes chocolate, honey, coffee and fat. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? I’ll be sharing more details about why we have made these choices in the weeks and months to come.
