No, this is not about how I used to eat in the fifth grade. It’s about the fact that my current eating habits could be described as what a fifth grader would eat if left alone in the house. For example, this morning I am contemplating a breakfast consisting of chocolate birthday cake (leftover from Sunday), and another cup of coffee (okay, the coffee isn’t usually a fifth grade choice, but you get what I’m saying).
I want to begin eating healthier. It seems every time I decide to focus on improving my eating habits, vanity creeps in. What begins as a desire to eat in a way that honors God and contributes to energy for the tasks He has called me to, degenerates into trying to lose weight or look better.
I read a book a while ago called Love to Eat, Hate to eat by Elise Fitzpatrick. I think I’ll pull it out again. It discusses the heart issues behind eating (or not eating). But what I would love to get my hands on is a website, book, magazine, etc. that tells how to just eat healthy. No low-carb trends. No barley green beneath the tongue. Just good old fashion nutrition. Does anybody know of such a resource? If you could leave your suggestions that would be great.
