Eating Healthy

Eating healthy means something different to different people. It could mean eating more fruits and veggies and less processed food. It could mean eating organic, buying locally or following the Raw food movement. Yikes...

For many of us it's a choice that becomes difficult as there are so many choices and what is good for me as a 30 something Mom with three kids who works full time may be different than yours.

Another factor that makes healthy food choices difficult is the cost of the food. A report produced by the Heart and Stroke foundation found that depending on where we live the cost of fresh fruits and veggies can be double or even six times more expensive. This is just fresh produce - never mind organic.

Take a look at CBC's article for more detail - it really is interesting and shows how making healthy choices is not always easy. But in the long run I would suggest it is essential. So keep trying Canada - baby steps!
