I’ve been asked to share my recipes and healthy food advice with the Gourmet Girl Magazine, a monthly online publication, which I am thrilled about! In addition to showcasing my healthy recipes I’m also writing healthy articles. Just between you and me, I never would’ve thought my beer drinking burger eating past would flourish into being an “expert” in health! Just proves to show that anyone can change.
My goal with these articles is to highlight nutritional information, current food trends, how to make healthier choices when choosing ingredients and so on. As you know, I’m passionate about health, especially healthy cooking so this is a great avenue for me to share great tips and information regarding both. This month’s article?–I take on Nutrition! It’s like laying out the floor plan to your new health.
Put in simple terms, nutrition is the way the body uses food. Every living thing needs food and water to survive. Food provides the body with both energy and nutrients. The energy we get from food enables us to do our day-to-day activities and the nutrients we get from food helps us sustain a healthy body. Food is the common denominator. It is the fuel on which the body runs. Without enough food you don’t have enough energy. Knowing this, it stands to reason that the better the food, the better the nutrients, the better our bodies will perform.
