You know, canned veggies sometimes are packed in BPA lined cans; milk may have the A1, not the A2 protein; fresh veggies--farmers market style-- need to be organic (clean), etc. Many of these tidbits are not something my hubby likes to discuss, but he was attentive and entered into the conversation. He wondered how much information that is passed around these days is just faddish, or scare tactics. Well, I am not anywhere near an expert and I am not one to blanketly believe everything that I hear either. But it is important to be careful with our choices when we buy our food. Healthy is better, and I do believe that.
Changing a lifetime of habits can be difficult. From my meager experience, I believe it is important to change gradually. Like cutting out one type of food at a time. I know this will sound silly, (but it is a start and a commitment): stop ordering fries with your meal if you have to go through the drive thru. And don't replace it with anything! I know, I know, I can just hear you---"But potatoes are not bad for you, and I love the saltiness " Well, forgoing it lowers your caloric intake and reduces the amount of fat that you are putting in your body. BTW--I drink diet soda with my hamburger, but there are pros and cons with that too!
Whatcha gonna do?
P.S. Next month is Heart Health Month!
