Here is my granddaughter Alerie sharing grilled Tilapia, salad, orange juice and cheesy mashed potatoes. We had mixed fruit for dessert.
Stay away from highly processed food of any type. If it takes a long time to spoil it’s not good for you! Stay away from high sugar and fat drinks!They are not good for you either.Stay away from deep-fried food of any type. Don’t add fatty dips or dressing to healthy food! You’ll notice I didn’t say never eat these foods you just need to limit your servings.
Do add health food to your consumption – notice I didn’t say diet. Diet to me means the short-term. I am talking lifetime commitment to healthy eating. Add more fruit , fruit juice, whole grain cereal, nuts,salads. Most definitely add fish especially fish high in omega-3′. Limit red meats and pork. Grilling is about the healthiest way to cook. Don’t stop grilling because it’s not summer!
Are there any guarantees doing all this will increase your life time? No.But why not put as many high cards in your hand just for the heck of it? As Mickey Mantel once said ” If I had known I was going to live so long I would have taken better care of myself “. Now let’s add excercise to the equation. Reduced fat intake + more excercise = reduced weight!
Your body natually loses muscle mass as you get older. Muscles burn fat. Add muscle building to your routine. Walk as much as possible, return the cart to the corral when you shop!
Encourage healthy eating in your children, “Do” as you say! 2012 is not the end – it is just the beginning of the age of enlightenment !
Wake up! Eat right to live right!
