Life is about balance. How we balance family, work, church, varied obligations and sleep can determine our quality of life. Too much focus on one leaves another area lacking, and ultimately, leads us to feel imbalanced and stressed. We must exercise the same balance in our food choices. Our bodies need a variety of high quality foods to function at an optimal level. Strive for a 40-30-30 approach: 40% carbohydrate (mostly vegetables and fruits)- 30% fat (olive oil, nuts, high quality butter, coconut oil)- 30% protein (meat, poultry, fish, eggs). This balance will help us get the right nutrients to our bodies. Start making the connection between quality food and quality health.
I will live a balanced life because God’s word states that if we are not well balanced we open a door for evil to come in and devour us. – 1 Peter 5:8
