Can someone honestly explain a good diet? Not like a oh I want to lose five pounds diet, but a proper eating diet where I can enjoy the food I’m eating, not feel like my arteries are clogging as I take each bite, and the food really doing great things for my body. In my opinion, wheatgrass and artichokes are impossible to consume on a daily basis. So is there a fulfilling diet? Should I just eat and not worry about it until I hit 40 and a doctor says, “Hey, you’ve got to take it easy on the potato chips!” Or is eating “naturally” or “healthily” or “organically” the way to go?
I just read this article the other day and it said that the prices we pay at Whole Foods may not be worth it nutritionally as the same products at let’s say Wal-Mart have close to the same nutritional ingredients. Personally, while I enjoy a nice pita chip and humus snack, I think it’s all mental. To say I’m eating “organically” sounds better on the tip of a person’s tongue rather than “let’s go get some food from the local grocery store!” So as you read this, I want to ask for some help…what is good eating to you? Where do you shop? How much do you really pay?
