Enjoy Some Organic Wine

Bookmark and Share

We’re all worried about what we eat.  From too much fat, to too many refined carbs, to too much red meat, fish, or poultry, there are so many concerns for everyone to pay attention to.  With many recommendations conflicting, it gets even harder, and when you throw ecological concerns like over fishing, factory farming, and pesticides into the mix, it can be downright discouraging!

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to enjoy a greener, healthier diet that won’t make you stressed and worried.  After all, anxiety is no more healthy than eating junk food – if eating “right” makes you tired, you won’t get much benefit out of it.  Here are a few tips to help you improve your diet in an easier and more sustainable fashion.

Step one, if you like it, is pour yourself a glass of wine.  If wine’s your thing, there’s no reason not to find a glass of quality organic wine and enjoy it.  Take the time to relax, because there are plenty of simple, healthy, non damaging foods and ingredients out there that are delicious and pleasant, too.  You can do a lot for yourself and the world around you just by going to a simpler diet made from primarily whole foods.

Resist the temptation of junk and choose stuff that’s not as processed.  Whole foods can be simply prepared, don’t take all that long, and can taste great, as long as you know how.  And studies in recent months have shown that people who aren’t on diets, but who choose to eat fresh, quality foods they enjoy, still lose weight.  They’re healthier and they have better muscle tone, too.

That’s because the vast majority of food on the supermarket shelf is low in nutritional value, but high in additives, processed starches, and preservatives.  It’s less satisfying, and you’ll eat more of it without feeling good.  Changing the way you eat will allow you to feel better without having to subsist on wheatgrass.

There are new cookbooks and information online turning up every day.  They can help you eat a lot greener, healthier, and still enjoy yourself.  You can pay for this content, look online for free material and information from others, or take a trip to your local library.  There may even be a restaurant in your area featuring eco-friendly food.

So grab a glass of organic wine, and know that in moderation, it’s good for you.  Red wine, for instance, contains antioxidants and has been linked with good heart health.  Don’t overdo it, and take some time to relax and enjoy yourself.
