You have all heard about it. Some food is considered downright unhealthy, while others is basking in goodwill. Are eggs healthy or do they increase our bad cholesterol? What about tomatoes? I’ve heard they are unhealthy. Sugared drinks? Naw..! Cheese? Whole milk? Cream? Butter? Coffee or tea?
We could continue this list for ever. Some people say meat is wrong, others know that our vegetables are all genetically modified and therefore dangerous.
Is there anything left we can eat without getting nightmares of it?
Like with many other things, I think the truth is simple and somewhere hidden in the middle. For my needs I prefer a varied diet, which contains moderate amounts of just about everything and a good deal more of what is mentioned above. I do prefer to eat at home contra in an unknown and therefore suspicious restaurant. The reason: I like to know what I shovel into my mouth.
I have searched a bit around on the internet and found this link. The article is written by a Norwegian. He is attacking some foods which most of us wouldn’t think contains anything unhealthy. Again, this needs to be read with caution. When the author talks about some vegetable oils being not good for you then that means you should not use it all the time. If you drink only diet-type soda then you should know that it ain’t good for you. But if you are visiting old auntie Sofie who’s offering you a diet 7-up because she is a diabetic, then for Pete’s sake you don’t have to refuse it. You won’t die of it.
I sure like to extinguish my thirst with the occasional beer. That doesn’t mean I’m an alcoholic. I never even drink 2 beers after each other, not even 2 on the same day.
But I think you understand what I’m trying to tell you. Don’t panic if you read the horror-picture-news in any health-guru magazine you have picked up at Wally-mart. In fact, you can save the money and buy yourself a healthy steak instead.
Thanks for stopping by and keep that good food coming!
