KIS - Choose To Eat Healthier Food

A simple way to take better care of ourselves is by choosing to eat healthier food.  It is important to purchase the healthiest and best quality food that one can afford.

The closer we are to a food's original form the healthier it is.  Remarkably, it is also less expensive.  The more a food is manipulated and changed end the higher the chance is that it contains more additives and preservatives as well as the higher the price.

Fresh, whole foods don’t last as long as those containing preservatives, which requires more frequent shopping, especially with regard to produce and dairy.  Meats and some dairy products, do freeze for greater longevity.

Read labels to see exactly what is inside that can, jar or bottle.  Many manufacturers now offer healthier, more naturally processed options.  A good rule of thumb is if you don't recognize and ingredient or you can't pronounce it, leave it on the shelf.

While grass fed beef and free range chicken is marketed at a dramatically higher price consider what you might spend on a package of frozen breaded chicken pieces and the prices may seem a little more reasonable.  All natural vacuum packed frozen fish versus a box of fish sticks isn't a lot different in price but turn that package over and read the ingredients and you definitely will see a difference.

Healthy, affordable, whole food options can be found at a regular grocery store.  Shop the perimeter of the store for the majority of these healthy options.  By shopping for the fresh stuff you will most likely save money.  By choosing to eat healthier foods you will definitely feel better and you may even lose some extra weight in the process.  Sounds like a win-win to me!
