Healthy eating has become a controversial topic, with many differing opinions on what constitutes a healthy diet.
Is there a one-size-fits-all diet that most supports human health? If so, then why are there so many conflicting beliefs about what constitutes the healthiest diet?
Hasn't science been able to determine which foods are best by now?
Is there a way to determine the best food selections for each individual, regardless of what the 'experts' claim?
To determine what constitutes healthy eating for you will also depend on the context of your past habits, and current condition.
Within the greater framework of our TYTN Diet Plan, there is an ideal set of foods that can be determined based on your personal goals and needs.
What constitutes healthy eating will vary for each person, however there are basic rules that apply to all, such as avoiding the foods that are definitely not part of a healthy diet, as mentioned above, and as outlined here.
It is our desire to empower people to free themselves from rigid dietary boxes, prevent potential health challenges, and enjoy ones diet and life. We have experienced the cognitive dissonance that comes from adhering to dogma, while ignoring our own innate wisdom.
Preparing natural, healthy meals is a sacred act. When we are mindful, and have embodied the above principles, we can finally trust ourselves to be the best determiner of what healthy eating looks like for each of us individually, more easily tuning out the rest of the noise in the endless sea of dietary fads and advice.
Ultimately, we are each responsible for our own choices, and the creator of our outcomes. Determining what is healthy eating is a personal journey, one that can save you countless dollars in medical bills, and provide you with a much greater quality of life!
Embracing the responsibility to eat healthy is a far more empowering and liberating way to live!
Macrobiotic diets typically focus on whole grains and a variety of greens and land and sea vegetables, along with some beans and legumes ~ foods we once considered foundational to healthy eating.
If you are interested in simple recipes incorporating a more plant-based focus, including some whole grains, beans, and more greens and vegetables, I will be making my previous books in the Basic Macrobiotic Book Series, along with Make Every Bite Count available as a FREE PDF.
