Food Choices, Everywhere.

Food Choices, Everywhere.

It's common to hear that way too many Americans consume sugar, sodium, and fat at gravity-adding levels.

While it seems true that there is no single one-size-fits-all diet solution that is perfect for everyone, we do keep hearing this very simple and consistent message: Fresh fruits, vegetables, and grains are healthy choices.

Health.gov put out some guidelines for eating right and you can find them here. Their 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans comes with a section devoted to "the science behind healthy eating patterns." And if you're really into it, you can download and print their entire 200+ page PDF for some inspiring reading at bedtime.

All this information can seem overwhelming. Most of us have super-busy schedules and a limited amount of time to devote to learning all there is to know about healthy food choices.

All the choices in the marketplace, all the claims clamouring for our allegiance, all the seductive cravings, all the latest studies, and all the seeming inconsistencies among those promoting certain ideas about health can cause some of us to throw our hands in the air and say, "I'll take a bacon double cheeseburger, large fries and a Diet Coke." Only to make that bloated and guilt-ridden trek back to work.

But you don't have to be a food scholar to know at least this one consistent theme: Fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and lean proteins seem to be stayed suggested preferables in what is commonly thought of as healthy eating.
