ONLY...Two Rules for a Good Diet.

In the Opinion Section of the New York Times yesterday, I found this well-written and to-the-point article by Mark Bittman (journalist, food writer and author) which focuses on us placing our efforts on what truly makes a good diet.

In this article, it is made clear that we have a much louder voice than we may realize. While our food system is in need of help, we can do something every day to make our own choices. It really is in implementing a few simple rules that involve making a strong effort to avoid eating junk food/processed foods whenever possible, eating more greens every day and start cooking!

The one thing I do love about cooking is in the choices of ingredients that we can use while preparing a meal. At times, it could even be fun to "think outside of the box" and use that hidden spice "Turmeric" that you have hidden in your pantry or that Swiss Chard that is sitting in your vegetable crisper or what about those turnips that you bought last week? Maybe you were thinking of making something special with them -- or not. Now-a-days we have so much information at our disposal. If you don't know how to prepare the turnips -- what can you do? What about looking up recipes on the web? So easy and you may just create a dish that becomes a "keeper" in your recipe arsenal.

Lastly, as Mark Bittman points out, "No need to rely on corporate benevolence or the government getting things right. The power lies with you." Let's take the power into our own hands, take care of our health and see how far we can go...
