We were focused on nutrition this morning! I participate in a preschool co-op with my four-year-old, and it was our turn to host. We learned about the five food groups, and I was struck by how simple nutrition can be, yet many of us are still confused about how to take care of our bodies.
When you take care of your body, and eat healthy, you will have more energy, and everything in your day will go better. I’ve experienced extremes in this, during pregnancy. I have been anemic during this pregnancy, and even after I got over the whole puking period, my diet has affected my mood and energy levels in an extreme way. As an example, here is a journal entry from a while ago, where I gave some advice to my future self. It probably shouldn’t have been such a surprising discovery.
I was kind of a wreck that day. There wasn’t really a great reason for me to be upset. I just couldn’t seem to handle even small hurdles. After I had eaten, I suddenly felt like all of those things I had been upset about were insignificant. It’s amazing what a taco can do for your attitude towards life. 🙂
It is my opinion that the more homemade it is, the better it is for your body. The more ingredients you can recognize on the label, the better it will be for you. I think the biggest problem many of us face in 2016 is finding food that has not been so processed that it is barely considered food. Everyone is busy, and looking for easier and faster. Most of the time, we don’t have time to spend three hours on a meal. We can try to eat more natural foods, and look at labels though. Take care of your body, and your body will take care of you.
