You Would Think We Would All Take Much Better Care of Our Only “House”

Superfood-Plate2joshaxeIt’s incredible how bad most “food” is for you.  I’ve been reading labels the last couple days and have been reminded of this a lot.  I also find it interesting that 75% of Americans believe they eat healthy, yet obesity rates are at an all time high.  Why does this disconnect exist?  I guess it comes down to how people define healthy.  The nutritionist  might define healthy as eating 6 servings of veggies per day, no refined sugars, and drinking plenty of water.   Others might define healthy eating as only eating McDonald’s 3 times per week instead of 6 times.

I’m not exactly sure what eating healthy is, but I do know that an incredibly small percentage of people do it; present company included.  You would think we would all take much better care of our only “house”.

  1. I take your point about who defines what is healthy, and 3 McDonald’s is better than 6, but perhaps we need to be presented with a physical health problem before we take notice of what we should and shouldn’t be putting in our bodies?

  2. I understand the challenge! I’ve heard it said that you need to gather all of your foods from the perimeter of the grocery store everything else in the middle is processed. And to remember to eat the rainbow every day!

  3. Oh, I hear you. We’ve been trying to eat healthy at my house, but ate out once at McDonald’s this week. As I looked at my sandwich (the artesian) I wondered if it was made of real chicken breast or that pink stuff.

    1. I like McDonald’s fries, but every time I eat there (which is not often) I feel awful physically. I could not imagine eating that all the time.
