We can find many different ideas on ways to eat that benefit our physical, mental, and emotional state. Although it might be difficult to decide which suggestions to follow, cutting down on fats and sugars, while eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains is a good place to start.
Eating healthy can:
- Limit heart disease
- Prevent diabetes (type 2)
- Moderate blood pressure
- Enhance moods
- Keep us at an appropriate weight
How I add this to my life: I adore dark chocolate and, although I’d love to latch on to the suggestion that it’s good for me, I try to manage my intake. Some days are easier than others. Occasionally. I may use a handful of chips as a reward (for finishing one of these postings, for example), but I try to connect my dessert to a meal instead.
