It’s The Right Thing To Do…..

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Everywhere we look we’re being told to “Eat whole grains.” “Eat fresh food.” It’s very popular and quite hip to buy organic, at farmers markets or to grow your own food.

When did the food world turn upside down? Not more than two generations ago it was the poor people who ate whole grains & grew their own food because processing was more expensive.

I am going to fly in the face of the pundits who say it’s expensive to eat healthy foods. Ounce for ounce, you still get better value & better food value if you buy whole foods instead of processed foods. Compare by weight and nutritional labels the difference between un-popped popcorn and pre-packaged popcorn; old fashioned oatmeal and instant oatmeal; Rice a Roni™; a bag of potatoes and a box of instant cheesy potatoes; fresh chicken or even chicken pieces and frozen, breaded chicken fingers…

We don’t have to let hipster, foodies and food industry marketing hijack healthy eating. Ignore all the hype and serve and eat whole and fresh foods because you know it’s the right thing to do.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Monday, July 8th, 2013

There’s a study that tells us if we want a mentor we shouldn’t pick the flashy, high profile producer (the fastest runner, biggest loser or mother-of-the-year).  The study suggests we select the solid producer who day in & day out does a good job.  They are easier to copy because their production isn’t likely to have included some luck or big risks that happened to work out. 

 Once again, slow & steady wins the race.  That usually goes for changing your health habits, too.
