The country of overweight and unhealthy eaters.  Fast food and process food is killing our children and citizens.  We eat everyday!  How important is the food that we put into our bodies?  Very!

Healthy hearts and good cholesterol counts should be a priority for all of us.  We have a choice when we select what we put into our mouths.  By taking a few moments to think before we eat, we could be making some of the more important decisions that we will ever make in our lifetimes.

So, what can we do to find and eat better and healthier food products?  Work at it...yes, you need to go out of your way to start reading food labels.  Each label will tell you how much fat, protein, sodium and other ingredients are in each product.  By starting here you will be amazed how you can substitute one product for another and cut down your sodium and/or fat or anything else that is bad for us.

After the label reading, we recommend that you start buying some or the organic products that most stores are now carrying.  Some stores will also offer locally produced foods and produce that may be healthier than the produce that has been shipped in from several states over.  Eating healthy is very important and here is a good site that we feel may help; Healthy Eating

Stay away from high saturated fat foods.  Start adding more fruits and vegetables to your menu's.  Also, start adding whole grains, high fiber type of foods, if you eat meat, find the leaner meats and poultry.  Try to include cold water, non-farm raised, fish in your diet at least once or twice a week.  When you are picking up the milk and dairy products, go fat-free or the lower fat dairy products.  All these ideas are very simple and quick and will not impact the meals, other than you will be eating better.
