A Colorful Table

The table hajs been neatly arranged with all the delicacies that your best chef only knows how. There is Meat of all colors, red meat,white meat and others. The table is laid with all the appetite arousing colors. There are flowers and candle light burning that one may think you are celebrating a wedding anniversary or birthday. No, it is just a normal meal.

Are you choosy what you eat?

Do you just fall on the food and eat gluttoneously over any type of food or you watch what you eat? Do not tell me that you have not been refused any food by the doctor. Are you waiting for the doctor to tell you to mind what you eat. You must choose as you are the solo doctor of your body.

Are you aware of these?

Your body needs no meat in your diet. If it is a must that you eat meat, then opt for white meat like fish, chicken, rabbit e.t.c.
Eat plenty of vegetables. Vegetables are known to have most of the essential minerals and vitamins that your body badly needs.Some vegetables like stinging nettles or urtica are known to have curative and preventive qualities to diseases.

Take plenty of fruits daily. I know your mind has gone to bananas and fruits such as coconuts. Yes, they are fine fruits. What I meant was that you eat more than five types of fruits daily. They must be fruits that you eat both the peels, succulent flesh and seeds.
Always be wary of the oils used to prepare the meals. Solid fats contain too much cholesterol and solidify quickly Making them not good enough.
Sugar intake should also be controlled. The body Needs only One Spoonful of sugar a day. Too much of it is poisonous. If You were to Take soda then Take club soda Otherwise the Other sodas have too much sugar.
Take plenty of water. Twelve glasses are needed by the body daily. Water assists in digestion, food Swallowing  and excretion. Most of the body Is water. Blood And  milk  is One Hundred percent water.

Do you do exercise?

This is another Vital part of Dating. Exercise is very necessary. It assists to burn down the food eaten. Exercise opens the pores as it rids the body of excess water, urea and salts.

    1. I do my best to eat healthy. I have been blessed to make it to 60 years of age and have not experienced any severe health problems that were the result of a bad diet. I eat meat, fruits, veggies, sweets, etc. My weakness is cheesecake. 🙂

       
      • Congratulations for being sweet sixty. We have to thank God for that. Thank you for your comment too. Be blessed. Stbrians is on mylot and seems not to meet you.

        Eating right and exercise leadgs to health and long life. Our bodies need the right kinds of food in the right quantities. Avoid red meat if you are to keep healthy. Take more fruit. It is medicine.

        Majority of people think it is depriving to avoid certain foods. It is not. It is healthy.

         
    2. I am a vegetarian so I don’t eat at most places. In fact, there is on one restaurant I do eat at, in all cases I would rather wait until I get home and cook something or just have a drink or a fruit.

       
      • Being a vegeterian happens to be the strictiest discipline that ever existed on earth. It happens to be a very health exercise. One needs to watch what he eats and where he eats. They may opt to starve rather than break the discipline.

        @kaylar you have chosen the right path where nutrition is concerned. Many attempt it but are defeated miserably. Meat is like alcohol. They get hooked to it and find it hard to quit. Finally it bring diseases that send them to the grave

         
    3. I eat everything. Am very healthy. Dont see why I should not eat meat. It is too sweet to do away with it. A good write though

       
    4. Choose is only for wealthy people, poor people will never choose what food they eat. But because the question is going out for individual like me, my answer would be ‘it depends on the situation’.

      When I attend party and lots of foods in the table, I choose what to pick, I don’t pick fried fish and other kinds of fish. I choose meat and vegetable salads. Fruits, any kinds of fruits will do for me.

      But when crisis come and only one meal in the table during lunch or dinner at house, no way we can choose. Its okay, any foods served in the house is always the most delicious food we’ve ever taste.

       
    5. nice article. Conveyed everything beautifully in a good way.

      I do agree that we are wanting eating habits.
      My way of eating is exactly the one you have described above. This is my habit from my childhood. I was eating in a selective manner. I was covering all most everything that gives Vitamins, proteins, oil, sugar, carbohydrates, minerals, in the adequate proportions. Even the elderly people were changing their way of eating when once they see me in any marriage functions and family get together functions.

      There are people as observed by me who collect every item in their plate select a chair laying in a corner and give good exercise to their mouth. This is what I hate.

      Generally, people hesitate to take their food in front of me for fear of my discipline. This is the saddest part of life.

       
    6. Very nice educating write-up. It’s also a good idea to drink warm water every morning before taking any meal as it flushes all fats in the body. The similitude of this is that of the kitchen sink. If the kitchen sink is not flush with warm water regularly it is bound to block as oil will solidify in the its pipe.

       
    7. That’s is some good writing right there. You be a laid out all the facts right. Okay for me i am a choosy eater of course I don’t eat everything but in my meals everyday i try to incooperate evrything. There is the protein, cabohydrates and vitamins. I think those are three most essential things you need to be a in your meals. Even doctors and experts have said it before eating meat is not bad, but say it in bits. It’s better to have white meat than red meat alright but you should not skip it altogether. Anyway all the other things that you have mentioned are very important in our daily eating. It’s true that we are what we eat. Our eating habits are definitely getting out of control and that has to be checked.

       
    8. I am not choosy in terms of eating some food. However, I don’t eat certain menus that I didn’t how it was being prepared. I can’t afford to jeopardize my health. There are some instances, people had eaten something that took a matter of time before they realized having an allergic to it. This simple principle of knowing when we traveled to a foreign land. We need to be sure before eating some foreign delicacies.
