This week, I revisited my healthy lifestyle goals and I went to workout for the first time in a year (gasp). The workout got me thinking about what I eat. I have to be honest with myself, I don’t know much about nutrition. With a toddler, I am more thoughtful with food. I meal plan, stay away from processed food much more than I have before, but that doesn’t guarantee a balanced diet for our family. I don’t really know what a true balanced diet would look like.
I have decided to get my food act together. I am determined to get myself food smart. To start, I need to understand those darn labels on the back of food packages. Now, at least, when I’m munching on my Pirates Booty, I will know what I’m doing to my body. Good or bad.
I found this helpful video explaining how to read nutritional labels. Take a look. Maybe you’ll learn something new. I did.
