There is not just one factor causing chronic illness in children today. There are many.
But one thing is for sure. What we eat plays a huge roll in all of these conditions. Food matters. Food can make us sicker or help us heal.
What's confusing about "how to eat healthy" is that we're all different and what might be good for one person, may not be a good choice for another. That's where the help of a trained professional, skilled in this area of nutrition can be helpful.
However, given we're all different, I do think there are SOME general guidelines we can all follow to improve health and prevent dis-ease for ourselves and our kids. Over the next couple of weeks I'm going to outline these guidelines for you right here on the blog. I'm hoping this will help you cut through the confusion that you're feeling about how to eat. Here is just some of what we'll cover:
- What NOT to eat: Food to clear out of your pantry now
- Meat: healthy or not?
- All about fat: Why you're probably not getting enough
- Vegetables & Fruits: How to get more into your daily life
- Grains: The good, the bad, the ugly
- Seeds/Nuts/Legumes, Oh my!
Leave any topics or questions you have in comments so I can be sure to cover those as well.
