Latest From Food Gets Real

Eating well to me should be an aim - a direction in which we are often off target, we'll never be perfect and there are so many differing opinions ideas and trends that it can feel like an impossible labyrinth

With so many questions such as

Should I take vitamins or get my vitamins wholly from the food I eat?

Processed food is bad but what exactly does it mean?  Is bread a processed food? or oil? 

How far back to "scratch" do you go to "cook meals from scratch"? I bake my own pies - but does that make them any healthier than a shop bought one?

Is it healthy to go totally vegan?

which is more healthy? High carbohydrate? or High protein? or are they both "red herrings"?

Does natural always mean healthy?  Does man made always mean unhealthy?

So where do you begin?

One step at a time.  

That pie mentioned above may not be the healthielst food - full of fat and processed grains, but it's a step better than a purchased pie with a long list of unpronouncable ingredients.

This website recognises this that not everyone eats teh same - some recipes and ideas may not be the healthiest but are aiming for "healthier" real foods rather than manufactured addictive food-like products

This is a blog about eating well

Of course that is all a matter of opinion. 

If you are living in a famine then any food is good food.  If you are living in prosperity good food is what you can afford that others can't

If you are overweight good food is what ever will help you reduce your size

But generally speaking its not just good food you need - it's the best you can source and afford becaus eif you keep eating food that is not the best fo ryour helth it could be decades before the consequences come to light, and then it is too late.  So eat the best you can right now
