Eating healthy

Jessica's Healthy Peach Cobbler Recipe

 Eating healthy in today’s world can be difficult, tiring, and seem almost impossible. When it’s easier to eat frozen and processed foods than it is to cut up vegetables for a salad, we tend to forget (conveniently) the health benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables.  I know, I know. There are many benefits to eating fast foods. It’s fast; it’s easy; it’s cheap; it’s CONVENIENT.  Whether you are running around with kids, in school, or working, you don’t have a lot of time to spend preparing meals when you can barely keep your eyes open as it is. But what would you say if I told you that healthy eating could be as simple as making a single change a day, or even a single change a week, until you develop a whole new way of eating—a whole new way of living.

Eating healthy is not only important for your own health and well-being. Your family is also greatly influenced by the lifestyle that you have. Once you realize the impact your actions—eating, and everything else—have on your family and yourself, you can realize that a healthy lifestyle is one of the most important things you will ever do for yourself or anyone else. 

I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the list of ingredients for whatever you are looking to buy. Many people check the Nutrition Facts label and think they are doing what they are supposed to do but that is very wrong. Something can look pretty perfect on the Nutrition Facts but may contain many unwanted, harmful chemicals. For more information about healthy eating or if you have questions about anything in this article, you can e-mail me at
