Eating Good

I try to eat Healthy. Try is the important word there. I buy healthy food, cook healthy meals, drinks lot of water, etc. I enjoy the healthy food, even. The healthier alternatives to many of the regular products are more expensive, but I think they're worth it.

Whole grain and sprouted breads, flours, cereals, rice, fresh vegetables (rarely organic though) and fruit, using high quality extra virgin olive oil instead of other oils, I've been drinking tea instead of coffee. Haven't had much beer at all, instead I might have a glass of wine. I make sure my eggs are from free range chickens and have omega 3, there's flaxseed in that whole grain cereal. Did I miss anything?

I enjoy all that food very much, and it makes me feel good. But I still feel the need to eat the "junk food" more than I should. Today, I had eaten very well, but then had the urge to go out and eat a Toll House Chocoloate Chip cookie Ice Cream sandwhich. Do you know how bad those things are for you? But so good. It seems 3-4 times a week I still break down and eat badly. But I would say for the most part I'm eating better than I ever have. We'll see how the longer term affects play out...
