I’m trying to work more on the health aspect of food. I don’t want to be so strict that I’m depriving myself of something that I actually need. I also don’t want to be so restrictive with my food choices that I’m starving myself.
We hear from the mouth of one of the most prominent nutritionists in the country, Dr. Ruth Heller. She has an interesting perspective on the importance of variety, moderation, and variety of foods. She says the most important thing we can do for our health is to be aware of what we eat.
She goes on to say that we should be eating the foods we like, and that we should avoid foods that we don’t like. She also says that we should eat the most healthful foods that we can find. She also says that we should eat the most varied food in order to get the most nutrients.
In our food-list, a bit of science tells us that a lot of food is actually nutrient-dense, so I don’t see why we should eat much of it. But if we want to eat it, we better eat it first.
jr foods is a new concept here at FoodLab, and it is also a bit confusing. I’m not sure exactly what they mean by “the most healthful foods,” but I suppose we should just eat the best healthful foods that we can find. It sounds like a good idea, especially when you consider that the only vegetables that jr foods actually wants to eat are those that are super healthy. But I do wonder what kind of food that really was.
Well, first we have to check on the healthfulness of jr foods. The jr foods that are on the menu (and on our website at home) are mainly the vegetables that contain vitamins A, D, and E. And on the site, it says that the food contains a lot of vitamins A and C. But we have a lot of other foods to check for healthfulness as well, like our own bread.
I’ve found the jr foods that we choose to eat when we’re dining out to be pretty healthy, but I’m always going back to our bread if I want to get something that’s good to eat.
I still find it a bit silly that we can choose to eat certain foods whenever we want, but I can’t help but feel like we’re giving up our independence to eat certain things all the time. Maybe it’s that I’ve been a vegetarian for so long, and I’m just used to eating meat that is on a schedule.
I can totally see your point. We are so used to what we have come to know as “fast food” that we have no idea what it is or what it’s like to eat it. We have no idea how it feels to eat it, or what the difference is between what we eat and “fast food.” It seems like they are so different that they are in competition with each other, and that makes it difficult to compare them.
With the exception of that one time you took a McDonald’s cheeseburger with your morning bowl of soup, you are almost certainly eating fast food. And like I said, you’re probably not eating it in the correct order. This is where things get a little tricky. First of all, fast food is a lot more than just the items listed. It’s not just the fast food burger. It’s the things that come with it.
