Hey guys! Welcome to Everyday Eating!
My hope with this blog is that is becomes your go-to tool when you need a quick and easy recipe, want to share your own recipes or experiences or even just need a motivational push in the right direction. I'm a firm believer that two heads are better than one, so please, if you have any suggestions, requests or topics you want more information on, do not hesitate to give me a shout.
So to jump right into things, I wanted to quickly share with you guys, the definitions of two familiar words that we see on an almost everyday basis and that are often misconstrued - diet and food.
The word diet is usually always paired with thoughts of starvation, misery and deprivation however.... the true meaning of diet is:
a regulated course of food and drink to promote health or for weight control, to eat according to prescribed rules, "a way of living"
Furthermore... the term food is often associated with a way to reward or treat yourself, or something you eat to get pleasure, when actually, food means:
that which is eaten to sustain life, provide energy and promote the growth and repair of tissues, nourishment
Pretty interesting, huh?
My challenge for you today, is to choose your food based on it's actual definition. Is that mid-afternoon Snickers bar sustaining your health? How about that all grapefruit diet? Is that a way of living?
Stay Healthy and Positive,
