That is a question and three-quarters. We are bombarded at different levels, and on so many fronts, by information about food – from advertisers showcasing the wares of their industrial food-producing clients to a mass of TV programmes, and zillions of articles in newspapers, magazines or blogs about healthy nutritional and lifestyle choices.
We cannot in any total sense fashion our futures but there are certain things we can eat or not eat to tweak how healthy those futures will be, especially given that some chronic western disease, such as, say, type two diabetes, are largely preventable if one makes the right dietary choices.
So, how then can we best navigate our way through the rivers of information out there to come up with the most health enhancing dietary choices. In truth, I am not sure how, but I was much taken by this RSA short video at the top of this post. The message on the video is, I think, a good starting point although obviously, and tempting as it sounds to a cake lover like me, slices of homemade cake for breakfast lunch and dinner might not be such a clever idea.
Now blogging may not make the world go around but it does make things in the world go around because I might have missed this short video if I hadn’t come across it when reading Metropolitan Mum’s blog and she in turn found it via another blog: A Cup of Jo.
The RSA is a UK-based charity and says of itself that it is: ‘an enlightenment organisation committed to finding innovative practical solutions to today’s social challenges’. There is a ton of interesting videos on their website: RSA Shorts here and the longer RSA Animates here.
