What makes food healthy?
This next week I'm going to be pondering this question. I think it's a good starting point when I'm deciding how to live and why-- beginning with the premise that God has given us physical bodies that we have to figure out how to take care of-- not always an easy task.
It's easy to get caught up in the fad without knowing exactly what's good and what's not, right? This week I'm going to work on understanding my objectives clearly. I mean, can you always taste the difference between organic and non-organic food? I can't. Should that matter? Should we immediately discount the role of processed food in our lives?
There's a lot of different emphases you might have, so these are the smaller questions I want to answer before Wednesday:
1) Is the food healthy for the planet?
2) What is healthy food?
3) Why is processed food less healthy than unprocessed food, if indeed it is?
4) How would growing food help attain the goals you set for yourself?
If you would like to give me your insights or other questions, they are more than welcome.
