The good news is that Australians are living longer than ever before – but the bad news is that we’re not living healthier. More and more of us succumb every year to “lifestyle” diseases and conditions, which are caused by the way we choose to live our lives.
BUT… we all have the power to turn the tide! The simple facts are that just by changing what and how we eat, we can prevent 60-70 per cent of chronic (long-lasting) disease and premature death.
Billions of dollars are spent every year to entice us to eat fast foods that are easy to buy and easy to eat. (heeeeeeellpppp, runnnnnnn). The trick is, if you are going to cook for yourself, purchase fresh produce. Get the whole experience at the market. Use your senses. If you are going to purchase ready made, make sure it is hand made food, produced daily. Avoid the preservatives and packaged on shelf products and you are good to go. We must be kind to our bodies, make even small, gradual changes to what we eat and how we live and we can all start the journey, towards living happily ever after.
Go get em!
