Thursday, January 21

No food is healthy. Not even kale. That's the title of an article on washingtonpost.com and it's all about the language of food and being skeptical of buzz words in the food industry.

The foods we eat are not "healthy" they are "nutritious." Or, they should be. We will be healthy if we eat nutritious food.

Now, I don't want to get too caught up in semantics, but we need to be aware of what we are putting into our bodies and that means parsing the language used in marketing campaigns and food labels.

What is refined? Enriched? Natural? Are these things good for us?

In the end it's up to you. You should be reading ingredient lists and checking the nutrition facts. Or, best case, you should be buying foods that don't have nutrition labels, like whole vegetables and meats.

Read the article for yourself and get a better understanding of the food industry and how things change over time. Foods that were once considered nutritious turn bad and now they're coming back to the good side. It all gets a little confusing, but the more you know, the better decisions you can make.
