Words of Wisdom Wednesday – Throwback – Defining Healthy

Hello my lovely followers! I got a notification that it’s my 1 year anniversary of starting my blog.. SO exciting!! Didn’t think this blog would go very far but it’s been an amazing experience, I’ve met many amazing people, done amazing things and learned even more about health on my journey to help OTHERS.

So I wanted to do a throwback of my FIRST post ever, because I think it’s a good one and many people didn’t get to see it since it was a whole year ago 😉 So here it goes – Thank you to everyone whose made this blog so rewarding and fun!

Unfortunately, a lot of people fall for those commercials that claim their foods are made with “natural flavors” or have the most natural ingredients. But in reality they make them the first few ingredients and then add a ton of crap as “preservatives” at the end that makes it unhealthy. Healthy food is WHOLE foods – Real meat, fruits, vegetables. Foods that aren’t processed or come from a freezer.

All my life I had heard “Eating healthy is too expensive” and saw people eat unhealthy thinking that it was true, because.. It had to be right? Or else people wouldn’t be doing it.. And when you go to a fast food place the salad is usually more expensive than the fattening food. So you would assume that it is usually correct that healthy food is pricey.

But when you go into the store you notice that when you cut out all of the frozen food, chips, soda, bread, etc. that your bill really isn’t very high! For instance, my husband went to the grocery store today and found a TON of chicken on sale and came home with around 8 bags of fruits, vegetables and meats and it was only $48! We saved $30 with our King Soopers card. And now we’ll have meats to freeze to keep them from going bad and have food for quite a while!

Don’t believe the hype that you cannot eat healthy due to the price or that some foods are “healthy” because the commercial claims them to have natural ingredients in them. You catch on really quickly that if you want something that may not be a WHOLE food to look at the ingredients. We use coconut sugar, it is made solely from the coconut flower and is a non-refined sugar that the body can process easier. If you look at the ingredients it tells you just that, there aren’t long names that you cannot pronounce.

Foods make a lot of claims, you just need to know the trick to decided which is a gimmick and which is truly good for your body!:)
