If you google “Healthy Eating” you get a huge number of “authorities” giving you advice from magazine editors to professional organizations to our own federal government. As a result, sifting through all of this information can be confusing and it may leave you asking yourself, “Who’s right?” or “So what am I supposed to follow?” or “What is the healthiest way to feed myself and my family?” Therefore, what I like to emphasize are the similarities between many of these healthy eating recommendations.
Hence, the main message is, you should eat:
- Lots of vegetables and fruits
- A small portion of healthy sources of protein (ie: poultry, seafood, eggs, beans, nuts and seeds)
- A small portion of grains, with an emphasis on whole grains
