Salt, Sugar, and Fat….

The perfect combination to keep us eating all the wrong foods. The food industry spends a lot of time and a lot more money to study exactly what ratio of each will keep us buying and eating their food or “food like substances”. Click on the link below for more details.

I know you have heard this all before but you really need to read the labels. Anything with “quick” or “instant” or ingredient lists with words that you cannot pronounce or have more  than 3 items should not be permitted in our houses.  Feeding ourselves and our families should be one of the most important things we do. I have met so many people that think that high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimers’ disease are all just the normal progression of aging or “it’s in my family”.

These are all preventable diseases. You do not have to spend the last 30 years of your life taking handfuls of pills. What you eat matters and it  matters now. You know what you need to do.  You have all heard it before.  Keep the processed food out of your house and you and your whole family will be less tempted. Eat more meals at home more often. Plan your meals.

How much exercise you get also matters. If you haven’t read this book yet, I highly recommend it. One is written with women in mind and one for men. A little motivation can go a long way. Only 21 days to form a new habit, start today:)
