Great Eating Habits with WHFoods

The "hidden gem" in healthy eating and nutrient-rich cooking

At the World's Healthiest Foods, we have always said that Healthy Eating and Nutrient-Rich Cooking are not just ways to satisfy hunger and stabilize calories but ways to open the door to great tasting food and an eating lifestyle that is easy, enjoyable, creative, delicious, and fun. We believe there's a joy in selecting nutrient-rich foods—not only in terms of experiencing more energy and other aspects of optimal wellness, but also in terms of personal accomplishment and the feeling of success.

Because foods, nutrients, recipes, cooking methods, and menu plans are key components in Healthy Eating, they form the focus for all that we do. But we have also come to realize that hidden within this mix of components is an amazing bonus for your health—a "hidden gem" that you might not realize is already right there in your hand. This hidden gem is none other than the successful accomplishment of outstanding eating habits.

The wonderful truth of Healthy Eating and Nutrient-Rich Cooking is that you cannot accomplish either of these goals without simultaneously developing outstanding eating habits! By "outstanding" we mean eating habits that have been shown in literally hundreds of research studies to provide you with health benefits. The most amazing part of this situation is the automatic part: you will automatically start developing great eating habits the moment you step into the world of Healthy Eating and Nutrient-Rich Cooking!

After reviewing the scientific studies on eating habits that are best able to provide you with health benefits, we came to realize that the most worthwhile habits for you to cultivate were none other than the habits that you will naturally be developing when you practice Healthy Eating and Nutrient-Rich Cooking. At the same time, we realized that each one of us can benefit from an awareness of this "hidden gem" that is sitting right there at the heart of Healthy Eating! So we created a full set of 10 articles that will provide you with all the practical details you need about great eating habits and their health benefits. Because each of these articles is self-contained, you can jump straight into any of the topics that peak your interest.

  1. Does Healthy Eating require cooking on a regular basis?
  2. Are grocery lists and organized food plans required for Healthy Eating?
  3. Does Healthy Eating require three meals each day?
  4. Are snacks a good thing or a bad thing for Healthy Eating?
  5. Does it matter if dinner is the largest meal of the day?
  6. Is it okay for me to "eat on the run?"
