Is healthy eating worth it?
Everywhere you look these days, people are talking or blogging about sugar free, clean eating, plant based, vegan, vegetarian, organic food. Is it a fad or is any of it actually worth it?
Real food can sometimes costs a little more than processed food however when you add it up and look at the consequences, you’ll spend less by taking care of your body now rather than trying to fix it later. And wouldn’t you rather support a farmer now than the drug companies later?
As a country, we are spending more on healthcare than ever before. Let’s take heed of the phrase, “prevention is better than cure” and address the lack of food education and literacy in our homes and in our schools.
If we can start considering our diets as a form of preventative health care, we might be more careful what we feed our families. As Hippocrates said, “Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food.”
Let’s start recognising the power of healthy eating and help educate our children now so that they will be better able to make responsible choices in the future.
