Food Choices

Many of us make poor food choices for various reasons.

Most people report that they make poor food choices due to stress or because they did not plan a healthy meal, and they tend to grab the quickest food to satisfy hunger. Planning and preparing healthy meals and snacks takes time, and many people struggle with a lack of time in their busy lives. Therefore, they suffer guilt and the roller coaster ride of weight loss, gain, and health issues due to poor eating habits. It is funny that the fuel that makes our bodies run is the last thing we plan, yet it is the most important. Eating healthy whole foods will help you to feel more energized and alert and increase your overall happiness. We can discuss healthy eating options by exploring healthy food choices and setting your nutrition goals.

I have followed a healthy food and exercise lifestyle for over forty years. My dietary restrictions include gluten and dairy. I love making delicious healthy meals and can assist anyone in developing a healthy lifestyle with my knowledge of various diets, including Plant-based, Pescatarian, Gluten-free, Mediterranean, and Intermittent Fasting.

Eating Habits Can Change

We live in a busier and more stressful world today. Oftentimes, families don’t get that quality time to enjoy food together, and many foods are processed and unhealthy. Consequently, adult and child obesity and diseases are on the rise. A lot of these health problems can be avoided.

Let food be thy medicine“is a famous quote by Hippocrates. ”You are what you eat, and what you eat eats” is another popular quote by Michael Pollan. Both quotes emphasize the importance of food in our wellness. The message is to eat whole, unprocessed, organic, antibiotic, hormone-free foods. You need well-balanced meals with nutrient-dense foods to nourish your body and feel your best. Since we cannot always be sure we are getting all the necessary nutrients, you will also need to take a good multivitamin and supplements as directed by your doctor. The responsibility of maintaining your wellness is on you. Discover what you need to become the healthiest version of yourself, and we will partner together to set and achieve your goals. Each day is a chance to live healthier. Give yourself the chance to become the best you can be.
