It is absolutely true that we are unable to control exactly how long we remain on this great earth to enjoy life. However, when we look into nutrition science the research data indicates our eating habits can have influence that may allow us a little more time. Creating healthy eating habits is a challenge. In fact, there are two distinct audiences; people that are already eating healthy and are constantly trying to find ways to keep up and those who want to start healthy eating but find it challenging to jump in. The problem is that the brain is very powerful. You have to first make a mental agreement with yourself that you will take control of your health. Your taste buds are a factor because your brain remembers those foods that were stimulating.Fear not! There are foods to become more familiar with that can help on the journey. For starters, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, high in nutrients and low in calories, is your best bet for a prolonged life. Two super foods that can get you started are grapes and broccoli.
