Food, fun, and friends. For those who love to cook and those who enjoy a great meal. Who says healthy has to be boring & hard?

You can improve your eating habits with healthy food choices you can incorporate in your everyday life.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body. These nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active, and your muscles working.

Nutrients also help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.

Good nutrition can lower your risk of developing a range of chronic diseases.  For example, eating more fruit and vegetables can help lower blood pressure and may lower your risk of certain types of cancer (such as colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer). Eating less saturated fat may also lower your risk of heart disease.

Healthy eating can also help people that already have some types of disease or illness such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure.  And, of course, improving your eating habits will contribute to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

Trying to achieve a balance with the foods you eat and include lots of variety can be a fun and rewarding experience not only for you but also your entire family.

Here we post healthy & healthier choice recipes and tips. Some recipes are very close to traditional recipes with just a few adjustments keeping the delicious tastes but reducing the fats & calories. Enjoy & Bon Appétit!
