While I was on my little hiatus from Weight Watchers I was reading what I was allowed to eat (or not eat) while pregnant and it reminded me again why we eat. That may sound basic but do we truly remember that we eat because we need the fuel for our bodies to work properly?
How can they run if they are not being given the correct nutrients?
We all know that taking prenatal vitamins makes our hair and nails grow faster and stronger but do we know what different foods do for our bodies? When we gain weight we blame food and it becomes the natural enemy. We turn to beauty products and diet pills for answers when we really need to start looking at what we eat.
What I would like to do in the next few posts in go over different food groups and talk about why we need them, what they do and what low point foods are great options. Hopefully it will make us look differently at food and we will begin to appreciate the benefits and what they do for our bodies!
Stay tuned, I will start later today!
