D.K. Thanks for dropping by the food section.
Eating is such a wonderful pleasure but it is important to choose our foods wisely.
Because our food choices each day affect our health—how you feel today, tomorrow and in the future.
The Impact of Nutrition on Our Health
“Unhealthy eating habits have contributed to the obesity epidemic in the United States: about one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 are obese. Even for people at a healthy weight, a poor diet is associated with major health risks that can cause illness and even death. These include heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and certain types of cancer. By making smart food choices, you can help protect yourself from these health issues. The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore.”

D.K. I didn’t share with you earlier that I witness my Dad on a ventilator twice. He was exposed to unhealthy chemicals in his construction days and also was a sugar junkie! When I would visit during college breaks I would find Dad’s sweets in canisters under his bed! He didn’t want to disappoint me because I did encourage him to eat healthier; not to be mean but because I cared about his health.
When I was in middle school I pondered what I wanted to do when I grew up. Originally I wanted to be a pediatrician because I love kids and wanted to help people. The realities of the job sunk in when I realized I would see a lot of pain and suffering! Then I realized that job would not be for me! I have been fascinated with healthy eating since high school. I stopped eating meat then and much preferred salads as I continue to“crave” them everyday.
Please keep checking back as I have a lot more to share such as; healthy recipes I create or have seen in my health magazines.
