And you know, if we can make our own food and drinks it will keep us healtier.
If we don't know how to cook then now is the time to learn as we must take time on preparing the very healthiest food to eat.
Easy to say, difficult to do sometimes but it is processed food and lazy eating that is the killer.
I read a fantastic point made by an American commentator....he said: Eat as much junk food as you like as long as you make it yourself....
So imagine the burgers, the buns, the humus, the cakes etc - then think of how you would make them from scratch....you soon see the whopping unhealthy ingredients or, in seemingly healthy food like humus, how fattening the combination can be. Take for example cake...often you are asked to take 200g of butter etc etc...and all the rest...sure, why not as a treat but as long as you realise exactly what has gone in to it (and you can freeze the rest in small portions as treats for others, to eat another day so you can ration yourself).
All too easy to buy biscuits and cakes and not look at what is in them. Make them, then you see! And then you realise they have to be a once in a while.
We all need to eat a variety of food that is seasonal and delicious - it is our responsablity, no one else's for our weight and our general health and well being (in the sense of doing what we can...)
We should consider food more, respect it more...think about where it comes from....and choose to only eat great stuff or, at the very least, the best of what we can afford. And we can all afford to eat more and better if we prepare food ourselves without wasting anything...and, as mentioned earlier, learning to cook if we don't know. Not knowing about calories, nutrition, cooking and avoiding food waste is a big fat sin!
