I spend a lot of time here talking about why you should eat healthier, offering tips to make healthy eating easier, and answering your questions about food and nutrition. But I never say why I even care what people eat, and what really drives Eating Made Easy. I thought Valentine’s Day would be a perfect time to chat about this. Because really, it all boils down to love.
When it comes to food, I believe:
- Food should fuel our bodies so we can have a high quality life
- Food should taste good and bring us pleasure
- Food requires attention, but not obsession or stress or overwhelm
- Food should strengthen the ties between us and our families, communities, farmers, and planet
I know these seem like lofty and maybe even obvious statements. But I think that small step by small step, we can make these food visions more of a reality. So this is what I always have in mind when I’m writing. I really want my readers to feel like they can buy, prepare, and eat food that tastes good, makes them feel good, and provides them more quality time with loved ones. I hope you find the ideas, information, and recipes on Eating Made Easy are helping to fill your life with a little more love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
