What's a healthy eater to do? Just what the heck *is* healthy eating, anyway?
I have tried many different healthy eating styles during my journey. In tbe end, I make up my own, as I so often do, but I take away a little something from pretty much everything I try.
The best way to eat for YOU is the one that makes the most sense to you & properly fuels your body.
Do you have enough energy to get thru your days?
Do you feel happy?
Do you look forward to your meals?
Do you rarely get sick?
Those are just a few of the questions you should be saying yes to to determine whether or not your way of eating is working for you.
I'm intrigued by the idea of a paleo but I don't really eat much meat nor do I want to. I'm a non-vegetarian who eats mostly vegetarian. The whole Paleo thing doesn't quite resonate with me because I think our ancestors probably didn't eat meat with most meals -- hunting isn't easy. But I'm still intrigued enough by the concept to order The Paleo Diet for Athletes from the library.
I know I won't be going Paleo, but will no doubt flirt with it a bit & keep some of it in my repertoire.
What eating style works best for you?
