This week will be discussing the questions you had about food, vitamins, going green and everything in between. So here are the questions of the week:
Tee: There are many different studies out now saying you don't have to follow the food pyramid anymore. Is that true and how do you feel?
Dee: Well there are many different food pyramids, but anyone of them is a good place to start for basic nutrition. I personally don't follow the pyramid or fad diets. As you from grouping up in the same house hold as me we ate a ton of veggies. Creating a well balance meal with fruits (F) and vegetable (V) should be your starting point. Learning about which F & V are in season and varies ways to prepare those F& V can also help. As for meats I usually go the chicken breast route, on occasions I'll eat dark meat. Low fat dairy products show be incorporated also. Easy shopping tip, shop on the outskirts of your grocery store. Those high processed food are in the aisles and those are what add tires to your body especially when you don't exercise. In short eat more F, V, less takeout, and most off all get out side and move!
Tee: What are good snacks for people on the run to eat?
Dee: Recipes are really my style. Having a army dad kind of made me eat like an army kid. So i tend to throw food together that i like and eat it. Baked potato with scrambled eggs and cheese. Breakfast: 1 1/2 cups (3 serving) oatmeal, 1 whole sliced bananas, generic crystal lite peach tea about 22 oz, 5 egg whites. That's slow start to a day, but because my activity has drop down from playing sport i need to adjust my eating habits.
Tee: How do you feel about whole foods and the farmer markets that are popping up everywhere?
Tee: Are you going green with your eating habits?
Dee: Huh? me going green I was green when it was cool to watch the Smurfs! Adjust you TV set little sis. I've always love veggies especially carrots. Some friends think I'm a vegetarian. Anyway combination of veggies and cooking styles is want help me to find things I love to eat. Make sure you try foods more then one time, and more then one way.
