The world today is all about instant gratification. Fast tracks, fast cars, instant food, ready to cook meals and instant everything. Everywhere you look, you would see different advertisements promoting unhealthy eating. The world is now suffering from this that there is a significant amount of people suffering from obesity and other complications associated with it. You don’t want to spend the rest of your life lying on your bed watching the days go by. You certainly don’t want to sit in your rocking chair letting the life in you just pass by.
You can start by changing what you put in your mouth. Start eating healthy and your body will go in accordance. In the supermarket, check the label and say goodbye to harmful chemicals that can potentially shorten your life. If you haven’t noticed, all processed foods have preservatives in it. Some you know, some you don’t know, and some you don’t even know how to pronounce. Food manufacturers use different kinds of chemicals to preserve your food. Chemicals you don’t know. A manufacturer can simply add something, for instance, sawdust, in your food and you don’t even know it. They can simply change the name into something impossible to pronounce. You don’t want to end up feeding yourself or your family sawdust in the end. The point is, as much as possible, you have to avoid processed food and stick to fresh fruits and vegetables.
You may agree or you may not, but there is nothing like the natural flavor of fresh fruits, meat, and vegetables. There is an explosion of flavors happening inside your mouth if you are eating fresh foods and vegetables. Natural flavors are not found in canned and processed food. This is the same reason that you will find artificial flavoring in the ingredients of most processed foods in the market. If you want to eat a mushroom, why opt for the processed one when you can have a fresh one? Not to mention that it is way healthier?
As they say, you are what you eat. If you want to live long, you have to change your eating habit and stick to unprocessed food. Living a healthy and happy life is always a choice, and it is up to you to make it. However, if you want to live long enough to see your grandchildren grow, you have to eat healthily and start living healthy.
