I Eat Meat Now

Before I get into that, I want to explain why I eat what I eat, so that people considering changes based on my opinion can make sure that my goals align with theirs. I choose what I eat for long term health and longevity. That's it. I love animals and think they should be treated kindly, but if factory farmed meat would make me healthier, I would eat it. Taste is important within the range of healthy foods, but if styrofoam packing peanuts were the secret to health, I'd be pounding them down. I don't eat to gain association with any group or subculture. Whether I'm considered vegan, vegetarian, paleo, carnivore, or anything else doesn't matter to me.

I'm not trying to be right yesterday, I'm trying to be right today. Sometimes that means admitting that I was wrong and making the best change I can. I base my identity around adapting quickly to the best information I can find, not clinging to the previous best information.

Also, I don't care how much money I spend on healthy food. If $5 buys me a meal that's somewhat healthy and $10 buys me a meal that is completely healthy, I will pay the $10. The act of eating is amongst the most intimate processes we undergo. The food we choose alters our bodies, minds, and futures. That makes it a top priority financially and otherwise. I once read an exchange where someone asked someone else why healthy food was so expensive. Because it's more valuable, he replied.

Nutrition and Education: Are they interlinked?

On The Tan Duck

Education is the basis of survival in this age. But to have an effective education, apart from an individual’s potential, his/her health plays a critical role. A healthy being is the one that constitutes a blend of mental and physical health. In spite of providing the best educational systems, unhealthy nutrition may make all the efforts go in vain.

Healthy food and education go hand in hand. Have a look at the list of food items you should eat to say fit, healthy and which would certainly help in absorbing and retaining a good education.

1. Vegetables and Fruits

Each vegetable especially the green leafy vegetables carry nutrition and strengthen the body. Fruits on the other hand are a rich source of vitamins and minerals. They should necessarily be included in the diet of every individual.
