Got this little questionnaire from Kath. Enjoy!
Q: What do you consider healthy eating?
The most important part of healthy eating is being happy with what you are eating and not stressing out about it. This matters more than whether or not sugar is evil (I think it is but I would never give up any food group), whether or not you’re a vegetarian (I’m not), whether or not you think fat is healthy (I do), etc…
But if you want more specifics than that, here is my philosophy: on the whole, I think it’s important to minimize processed foods in your diet and eat what you want, in moderation. If your mind is happy, usually your body will follow!
I also like Michael Pollan’s quote, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
Q: Do you consider your diet healthy?
In general, yes. Much more so now than in the past, anyway.
Q: What’s your favorite healthy food?
I don’t like labels. So my “general” favorite foods are: butter, bacon, broccoli, and burdock. Those all happen to start with B… I also like cabbage and Brussels sprouts, hijiki seaweed, lotus root, papaya salads, and kabocha squash.
Q: What’s one thing you could do to improve your diet?
I could probably skip dessert more
