Health and Nutrition Links

You probably have already figured out that health and nutrition are closely connected. It is difficult to have the first without paying attention to the second. The foods you choose on a regular basis will have a huge effect on the way you feel and your susceptibility to illness and disease.

In order to make better choices, you need to educate yourself about nutrients, the food supply, meal planning and how to successfully navigate to a healthy eating lifestyle.

Do you like"healthy" foods?

There is an impression out there that if a food is healthy, it won’t taste good. When you consider the variety of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, beans, whole grains, etc., it’s difficult to imagine that there aren't some foods in each of these groups that would taste good.

If you don’t like tofu or bran cereal, don’t eat them! Instead, find some healthy foods that do appeal to you. If you are accustomed to eating junk food, you may have to retrain your thinking and your taste buds a bit, but you may find that foods that enhance your health and nutrition become your new favorite foods!
