[CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

Healthy eating is relevant to all of us and not only does it effect our physical health, but our mental health too. Our diets are made up of a variety of nutrients, so knowing what is healthy and what isn't can be pretty hard to navigate. But if we have the knowledge, we have the power! The power to make healthy choices that is Smiley Winkgiphy

 

 

Join us on Monday the 13th of August at 7:30 PM AEST to have a chat about what healthy eating is and how we can make healthy choices for ourselves. If you're interested in doing some research beforehand check out the information here! This fact sheet outlines the macro nutrients in food, and how we use them in our bodies.

Hello everyone!

Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

And now for tonight's first question:

 

What do you think healthy eating is? Do you think eating the odd snack snack (chips, ice cream) is still considered healthy eating?

Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

heathy eating is to help maintain your health and being able to function for the day. healthy eating is to give the right nutrients to give yourself the correct energy. i think if you eat something unhealthy rarely then it won’t effect your health but if you eat it constantly than you’re not receiving the right nutrition.

For me healthy eating is making sure I eat lots of veggies, legumes and fruit and making sure I am getting the nutrients I need. I think it's ok and pretty much unavoidable to eat junk food sometimes Smiley Happy

Re: [CHAT] Healthy Eating Aug 13

Good question @lokifish!
I think healthy eating is having a balanced diet, trying to have lots of fruit and vegetables and trying to cook at home so you know what you're putting inside.
Restaurants tend to put a lot of salt or msg in their food.
I think having the occasional treat is completely fine and human! It's hard to be 100% all the time and it's important to enjoy your life Smiley Happy
