I've come to know that it's harder to eat real food, and it is the reason why we are so unhealthy. But I've also been through the struggles of trying to balance food in such a way that it doesn't taste bad, break the bank or become completely unhealthy. It's not a change of diet; it's a change of lifestyle and mindset. I think that's why it's so hard for many of us to change our habits. We have to understand that it's a mindset.
After reading Vani Hari's book, The Foodbabe Way, and Mireille Guiliano's book, French Women Don't Get Fat, and watching endless videos on clean eating and healthy lifestyle, these are the ten things I think everyone can do to help nourish themselves without becoming complicated.
