Healthy eating (and no more diets)

I (April) love to purchase produce when it's on sale and fill our counters. And my daughter Grace likes to decorate it.

We received a question from a mom who was wondering what healthy eating can and should be for a mom. She’s seen the never-ending diets that are flaunted on magazine covers at all the check-out stands. She’s heard about all the latest “superfoods.” But she was wanted to know if there’s a way to simply eat healthfully all the time rather than dieting – and if so, how that could work.

Since healthy eating for themselves and their families is something April and Saren think about and talk about a lot, they decided to devote this week’s radio show to this important and often tricky topic. In this 35-minute show, they share:

  • some simple the food “rules” they’ve made for themselves
  • tips for eating healthily while on the run as moms
  • ideas for helping ourselves and our kids develop a real appetite for healthy foods
  • thoughts on how we can develop a more positive and realistic attitude towards food and towards our bodies
