To say many of us have a complicated relationship with food would be an understatement. Food production and practices are the source of much controversy. Add to that the issues many of us experience with body image, and you’ve got a tricky subject indeed. Amidst all the confusion, it’s no wonder many of us lose sight of what we should actually be eating.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it may be best to take this back to basics. Remember the phrase ‘you are what you eat,’. With that in mind, consider what you want to be eating. If your food made you the person you are, what would your meals consist of? To help you decide, we’re going to look at some of your options.
A taste of nature
If you want to become a better you, getting in touch with nature is a good way to go. The same can be said for your food. Making use of what God gave us is a sure way to a healthy diet. That means eating as much fresh food as possible. If you neglect fruit and veg, it’s no wonder your relationship with food is lacking. In reality, you should incorporate them into as many meals as possible. If you don’t eat fresh foods as it stands, introduce them gradually. Try things you haven’t tasted before, and see what you do and don’t like. You’re sure to find a few things which appeal this way.
Your homely side
We all love to get in touch with our homely sides on occasion. This is, after all, us at our most unguarded. And, it’s good to get in touch with that same side when it comes to our cooking. Rest assured that home cooked offerings are better for you than ready meals. If you are what you eat, then you need to know exactly what you’re consuming. How else can you be sure of a healthy diet? Home cooking also gives you a perfect chance to use those fresh foods mentioned above!
A little something extra
It’s difficult to get everything we need into our diets, no matter how well we tackle the issue. In this instance, it may help to turn to supplements to keep us fit and healthy. This could put a spring in your step, and improve your health. To get it right, think about what you would benefit from the most. Do you need more vitamins? Would you prefer to turn to something containing Protodioscin, and other ingredients which help with your physicality? Bear in mind that you can’t rely on these things as alternatives to a healthy diet. These should remain as extras at all times.
A final word
Obviously, we’re all after something different here. But, this should give you some idea of how to develop a diet which suits. If ever you’re in doubt, come back that original ‘you are what you eat’ thinking. If you don’t want to be it, don’t put it in your body.
