19 Sep Eating can be simple
I love reading the NYTimes and the Seattle Times. They have great articles on health and science, two of my favorite topics. While I sipping tea this morning I read a Seattle Times article on the best healthy foods to eat if you are feeling depressed. A week or so ago I read a similar article listing foods that have been touted to boost stamina in athletes.
It occurred to me…why don’t we stop worrying about which foods to eat for mood, which foods are super foods, and which foods will keep our appetite at bay? Instead let’s focus on eating fruits and vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, and nuts. We like the taste of fast food and junk food, but these foods make us gain weight, feel sluggish, and less tolerant of stress. Stop and savor the taste of a carrot or apple. Fill up on a well-balanced meal. Snack on nuts or fruits. See how much better you can feel.
