In the last couple of years, I have done extensive study in a number of areas concerning healthy eating. In my studies, I have found it incredible that so many of the common health issues have been caused by diet, and how many of these problems can be
either prevented or even cured by relatively simple changes in the diet. The old adage "You are what you eat" is more true than most people can imagine.
Initially, my studies started with finding healthy foods for my parrots (I am a breeder), and very quickly expanded to healthier eating for my husband and I. Even though I have always prepared balanced meals, and had included a variety of food groups, I learned
that some of the foods we were eating were not as beneficial as I thought they were. Since I talk to quite a few people in all areas of the U.S. about the parrots that I raise, the subject of diet often became a topic of conversation. I was surprised to learn
how many people had either no or very little knowledge about the foods that we eat. Although my specialty is grains and whole grain baking, the subjects discussed on this blog will include information outside of this topic.
In this blog, as time permits, I will share with you the information I have found in my studies. Some will be entirely informational in content, and others you may find to be somewhat frightening and controversial if you are not already aware of them. In some
cases, the subjects include a tremendous amount of information, and further research may be required for you learn more about them.
My hope, and intent, for this blog is to try to educate people about the foods that we have available, and the foods we eat, in an effort to possibly prevent and eliminate some of the diseases that have become so common to the people, and the children, in
the U.S. I welcome all comments and additions that may be offered by visitors to this blog as I believe we can all learn from each other.
