When you ask about the nutritional value of food it's like asking if the fuel in your car's gas tank is any good ...
by David Brant, who became a successful althlete in high school, has studied health and nutritional issues for over 15 years and personally uses many fitness ideas and supplements that he writes about.
We, today, don't often stop to think about the nutritional value of food. We think about the taste of food, or how filling it is for us, or whether it is supposedly "heart healthy" ... but the nutritional value of food eludes our thinking for the most part, at least for most people. Food is our energy, however. Although it is also more than that, as it is also one of life's greatest pleasures and the preparation of it can be an art form, food is primarily for our energy.
When we talk about the nutritional value of our food, it's true that we are
talking in part about the importance of getting a balanced diet that provides us with much goodness in
terms of the substances that our bodies need. But beyond that, and more importantly, we are really
talking about how to keep our nutrient-giving foods as nutritional as possible. This is not as easy in
modern life as at first it is assumed to be by most people.
So, we do need to eat better foods, generally speaking. We can do this by:
trying to buy as much locally-produced food as possible; keeping a garden for ourselves; preparing our
own meals, not relying so much on "TV dinners"; and replacing those refined and sugary foods with more
whole grains and the use of different (but not artificial) sweeteners like brown sugar, honey, and
stevia. (See Nutritional Value of Common Foods, the Food Nutritional Value in Packaged Foods and Footnotes to and Label Lingos of Food Nutritional Values) There are also a couple of other things we can do:
Be mindful of the nutritional value of your foods. Your life will change...for the better!
Just because you want food which is nutritious doesn't mean it can't be delicious. Imagine Deep Chocolate
