I so agree with you COOKINGGRANNY it can be quite scary when you read some of the ingredients all those numbers that we have no idea what they mean.
I was only saying to a friend the other day. Why do we have all the additives, preservatives in food today when we have fridges and freezers. There were none of those added things years ago when there were no fridges, freezers .............

It is important to begin healthy eating no matter what age you are. You feel so much better and the sooner you reward your body with healthy food choices, the fewer problems you will have. When you begin to read labels, it is a real eye opener as to just what is being added to our foods.

My husband and I have been eating healthy for some time. Results: Doctor said we have the colon of a 15 year old after a colonoscapy. He is 73 and I am 67. Last week another doctor said we have perfect cholesterol. My husband who is diabetic maintains a perfect blood sugar (A1C)? We both exercise every day and eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Lots of whole grains and lean meats. If only we had done this years ago. We will never go back to the old way of eating.

Dear God, May there be less of me tomorrow! We can do it together.

Why should I make healthy food choices?


Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body. These nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active, and your muscles working.

Nutrients also help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.

Good nutrition can lower your risk of developing a range of chronic diseases. For example, eating more fruit and vegetables can help lower blood pressure and may lower your risk of certain types of cancer (such as colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer). Eating less saturated fat may also lower your risk of heart disease.

Healthy eating can also help people that already have some types of disease or illness such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure. And, of course, improving your eating habits will contribute to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

Try to achieve a balance with the foods you eat and include lots of variety and remember, all things in moderation.
