Of course we all know what we should eat, but often don’t. We buy the right food items and sometimes they sit and rot in the vegetable compartment without being touched. I really hate that. And as I often complain regarding the USDA new food regs for children, “They can’t get any nutrition from it if they won’t eat it.”
The food industries allure on us of all the over-processed so-called food items on the market today may be one of the hardest things that our 21st century brains are NOT designed to resist. “Resistance is futile” once again...

That being said, organic fruits and vegetables, legumes, grains, low fat dairy, and lean meats (unless you are vegetarian) should be the diet of choice to keep us at our healthy-best; don’t forget plenty of water. And we know that we should eliminate or lower our consumption of sugar, fats and salt. We all know how hard this is to accomplish, but it’s worth fighting for! And it is the fight against ourselves more than anything else that seems the hardest. And remember that if we can eat healthy, we just might feel better over all for Optimum Health.
