So I challenge anyone who's reading this right now, I challenge you to try to eat healthy every single day for a month. Trust me in the end you'll grow to love it when you're living longer and better than ever before. Are you up for the challenge?
What's unhealthy and what's healthy?
Some believe that the word diet is healthy, but it's not. Diet foods or drinks are usually very unhealthy due to being LOADED with artificial sugars/ sweeteners or even processed chemicals. Yum delicious right? That's not all there's also horrible things hidden in almost everything we eat or drink. For example sport drinks such as gator aid has food dye which contains a oil called petroleum which is found in gasoline... That's not all petroleum is found in it's also found in macaroni and cheese, candys, and just plain old cheese. Had enough yet? That's just some of the foods that contains petroleum.
Are grains healthy?
Grains are both unhealthy and healthy. Grains are only unhealthy if you're looking to lose weight, if not grains are perfect for the balanced everyday diet.

What's the best choices for eating right?
The best foods to eat when you wanna eat healthy are daily fruits and veggies, non red meats, fish, eggs yolks, eggs. If you really want to make your life better avoid red meats. Red meats commonly called pink slime, are highly processed and can harden blood vessels. Red meats can also cut your life span drastically. Some thing that you can get if your food is not prepared correctly is E. Coil, E. You never know what's in your meats. For example a butcher makes steak pieces and put them on the market. What the costumers do not know is that those steaks could possibly contain meat from 100's to 1,000's of different cows. The butcher was able to do this because of a product called transglutaminase aka meat glue.
Vegetarians are known for eating healthy however many vegetarians do not know that getting vegan can harm your health in many different ways in one way eating vegan does not supply fats needed to get vitamins D and A. Although eating vegan has it's perks for example, no tansglutaminases in their foods however it can also make your bodies lack of vitamins needed for a everyday healthy life.
