but now its over and i am free!
and just in time for a great food holiday, THANKSGIVING! which i will in fact be in Florida for :) we are meeting up with my dad, who lives abroad, in Florida so we can all have thanksgiving together and go to harry potter world.
So today;'s post i wanted to mainly dedicate to what your perception of healthy is.
now a days you see that label every where in many different places, so often that i think the word has really lost meaning.
many people look at healthy food the wrong way, maybe for them its a way to not feel guilty about eating chocolate cake, or a way to lose weight. but no. i don't think that's really what it means.
When i look at healthy as a term to label food, i consider the facts.
- how can i benefit from this?
- will it give me energy?
- does it contain essential fats, or/and minerals, and vitamins i need to have a functioning body?
- does it have harmful preservatives?
- is it organic?
its mostly used by the weight loss and diet industry as a ploy to use their products.
now, what IS healthy?
whole grains, homegrown vegetables lacking in preservatives, olive oil, nuts, berries, meat from farmers markets (though i don't partake in that) certain kinds of dairy etc.
so next time you go to eat something thats "healthy" really look at it.
till next time!
