What's Eating You Today?

Many of us simply don't think about food. Its plentiful. And, its easy to find. No matter where you are reading this, I'd wager a bet that there is food accessible to you within a few hundred feet.

Food is just food. But, when you really stop and think about it, food is terribly complicated. Not only is it linked with your waist line, its linked to your health and your mood. And, we need to eat - for many of us thats 6 times a day. Food is a BIG part of our day.

Now, on the other hand, some of us think about food TOO much! It takes up most of our waking hours, and even some we should be sleeping. For some food is a challenge (allergies, food preferences, medical conditions, eating disorders), to others its not. What to eat? What not to eat? It can take over your life.

I'm starting this blog to help figure out what's eating us today?  It can be so many things. Are you worried about your cholesterol? Aging rapidly? Feeling sluggish? Have kids and not sure what is best? Maybe you're an athlete and need some help? Or, maybe I'm just doing this to rank about silly food things that are eating me today! For example, as I sit here at the local mall food court, I just saw a mom buy her 2 and 4 year old girls an ice cream cone - sure, that might seem like a regular occurence but its 10:30 a.m.!!! What happened to an apple or banana as a morning snack?

Well, I suppose we are what we eat.
