I have always been interested in health and how food affects the body, especially in the last few years. I found out in 2015 that I am allergic to wheat, dairy , and eggs. This impacted my life dramatically and has drastically affected how I eat. I now eat much healthier and eat lots of fruits and veggies. I would like to claim that I am a super healthy, all organic eater; but that’s just not true. Unfortunately, there is still an abundance of junk food options that I can eat. So while I do eat healthy, I do have some junk food thrown in the mix. As I get older I hope to continue to broaden my spectrum of foods and find new healthy foods that I truly enjoy. The phrase “Hope is not a strategy” is meant to be an encouragement. Hope is something that has to be found truly in a persons heart and not something that can be manipulated. A schedule or strategy is an example of one person trying to control his or her life. Instead of over controlling your life, it is important to find hope in the Lord and His plans.
Here is a link to a website we refer to in my nutrition class on what a balance diet is supposed to look like. It shows the proportions of what grains and proteins a person is supposed to eat each day. I have found this to be very helpful!
