There are baby boomer statistics of all kinds. The group of people born between 1946-1964 who collectively make up this group are about 25% of the population, according to the 2012 census.
We’re a force to be reckoned with!
Just try to find a statistic about what we consider good eating. It doesn’t exist.
Heck with statistics. I’ll share what I think is good eating.
I make no claim that what I say is scientifically or medically correct. It’s my opinion. It works for me and has for a long time.
Organic is best
First, organic is the way to go whenever possible. Yes, it costs more but it’s an investment in yourself. It’s worth it. It doesn’t mean that simply because it’s organic it’s healthy, but all things considered, organic is safer because it will not have chemicals and additives that conventional food probably has.
If you can’t find or don’t have organic, get as close to it as you can. Avoid packaged or processed food. Read labels. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients and/or don’t know what they are, don’t buy and definitely don’t eat it.
The term “all natural” is a bit misleading. It’s not regulated. Organic is very regulated. I believe that what is considered safe in this country really means it has not yet been proven unsafe.
Believe what you will.
I am not promoting the grocery chain, although I’ve been known to shop there.
Don’t buy or eat low-fat, non-fat, diet, or anything that claims to be healthier because of what company has done to make it healthier for you. It’s not healthier. If something has been taken out, something else has been put in to make it taste good. It’s probably been salt or sugar enhanced. Also, the process used to remove whatever has been removed probably involved chemicals.
What I’m saying is eat food the way God/nature made it. Enjoy it for what it is. Moderation is the key but enjoy food to its fullest extent.
It’s part of the 5 F’s
Hearty breakfast suggestion
Two toasted slices of gluten-free bread, generously buttered (real butter), with melted, shredded cheese on top of that, quarter or half an avocado, one or two eggs fried over-hard in olive oil, pomegranate seeds, and blueberries, bacon, lettuce and tomato are optional.
Slice the avocado in thin slices, six slices is optimum. Place two or three slices on one of the buttered and cheesed pieces of bread.
Place a fried egg on top of the avocado.
Place the remaining slices of avocado over the egg if having one egg. If having two eggs, place half the remaining slices of avocado between the two eggs and place the remaining slices over the second egg.
Put the other piece of toasted, buttered, cheesed bread on top to make a sandwich.
Place a random amount of pomegranate seeds and blueberries on the plate next to the sandwich.
Go for it!
