Oh dear, I’m going to get hungry just writing this.
Good food is important. Though not necessarily vital for our survival (bad food will do just as well as long as it provides all the nourishment you need), it most certainly is vital for our happiness and fitness. A nice meal does wonders for you, and eating healthy on a regular basis drastically improves quality of life. Some folks over at a gamedev community I hang out put “eat balanced and healthy” on their “how to get motivated and stay that way” list.
So, what is good food? Nothing in particular, actually. Okay, okay, those hamburgers you bought at your favorite fastfood chain may have been hella delicious, but that doesn’t make them good. And they aren’t healthy, either. Good food, at least in my eyes, is an actual proper meal with a nice balance of meats and vegetables and a nice glass of water or other beverage. Also not important is that is has to be tasty. All the good stuff for my body needs to be there, but my tongue also wants something to enjoy. That should’ve gotten you stuffed. If it didn’t eat some more, or go get a nice desert in the form of some fruit.
Sure, eating healthy can be a pain in the ass sometimes, you don’t always want to take the time and cook up something complicated (not that you need to), but it’s really rewarding to do. Throw in some exercising and you’re living healthy. Feels good!
How long has it been since you last had some good food?
