Small Bites of Food Facts
When you were a kid and your mom would set a plate of food in front of you, it often seemed a daunting task that you could actually eat it all, especially if there were certain foods on that plate that weren’t your favorite things.
Then, your mom would tell you to just take some "small bites" and pretty soon, before you knew it, your plate would be empty and your tummy would be full of all the good things you needed to grow healthy and strong. It may not have always worked that way, but it’s still a great concept!
In the same way, do you sometimes find that the vast amount of information available about healthy eating is just too much to take in all at once? You are really interested in eating healthy and feeling well, but the task of consuming everything in the “information pantry,” so to speak, can be formidable.
It is sometimes much easier to obtain your knowledge in small, manageable bites and in a way that is useful, today, right now. This approach makes it possible for you to improve your eating habits for better health and longevity in incremental steps, one piece at a time.
