Once again, I need to apologize about the length of time between posts.

I want to address the issue of eating healthy. Eating healthy foods in proper amounts is a cornerstone of health and wellness, and with the economy the way it is, it seems like a lot of people are having more troubles achieving a balanced healthy diet. It is an unfortunate fact that the fruits and vegetables that we should base our diet on are generally overpriced and do not store long. But are well worth it in the whole scheme of things when you consider the health issues that come up when fruits and vegetables are not in your diet.

Eating healthy involves keeping several things in mind when choosing what to eat. Being mindful of how processed a food is (in general the more processed something is the less wholesome it becomes), what the nutrients are (remember, keep it balanced), how many calories and portion control, along with where the food came from (traveling time impacts amount of nutrients and the soil the food is grown in also determines the amount of nutrients) are all important.

The internet is full of information so I will provide some links for you,
lots of good information to start with here- you can personalize one for everybody in your family- keep in mind though that according to some nutritionists you do not need as much dairy and meat that may be suggested for you.
A nice little video to give some quick pointers

This is just a beginning. There will be more to come.
