Lifestyles have changed quite a bit since grandpa and grandma lived off their own land. Things nowadays are moving quickly and having and sticking with a set meal plan is not as easy as you may think. The importance of having a balanced diet can never be stressed enough. We’re not talking about diets, just good old fashioned 3 meals a day thing. Let’s take a look at why it is so important to eat regularly and healthily.
#1 Get some Routine
Sticking to a meal plan may seem boring. Let’s just say that you don’t have to eat the same thing every Monday or every other day. The important thing is having meal times and sticking to them. Having a routine and eating times is beneficial for your way of life and your body. This will boost and assist your metabolism but also give your life a sense of structure and routine.
#2 What’s Good for the Body is Good for the Mind
Our brains are amazing. They do a lot of work during our waking (and sleeping hours). But your brain, and essentially your mind, won’t be able to function properly if it is running on that one cup of coffee you had this morning. Avoid burnout and keep your brain healthy by eating regularly and rewarding it with brain food every now and then!
#3 What’s Good for the Mind is Good for the Body
Even if you are not a fitness bunny, your body still needs a certain amount of calories and foods from the key nutrient groups to perform optimally. Your body needs food to be able to function normally. If you don’t have a meal or diet plan, and only eat when you feel like fainting, you are doing more harm to your body than any good.
So, if you see our truck and you forgot to pack your lunch, or it is time to fuel up with a snack, be sure to stop by! Remember, a healthy lifestyle means a happy one, with a prolonged life expectancy.
