What do you know about food?

February 22, 2019

We all know that food is critical to survival.  The way gas fuels a vehicle, food fuels our body.  Beyond that, how much do you know?  Do you know what the different macro nutrients do for our bodies?  Proteins, carbohydrates and fats all do different things to the human body and we need a healthy variety of these nutrients to have a balanced, healthy life.

Can you eat too much protein?

Are vegetables carbohydrates?

What’s the difference between good fats and bad fats?

How much “fun” food is okay and how much should I be eating healthy, nutritious meals?

What about sugar?  How bad is it really?

We are going to have regular posts on this blog, focusing on nutrition, debunking the myths about food, opening our eyes to some realities and for some, embracing a love for food and what it does for us which you maybe never had!

Nutrition in the senior years changes with social changes like losing a spouse, or friends passing on, medical conditions and medications, and simply becoming less active.  We will also address some of these issues and how you can manage the task of taking care of your nutrition even if your appetite isn’t what it used to be!
