Many individuals have a problem living healthy lifestyles because they weren’t brought up to live a healthy lifestyle. They reach their young adult years and have no idea what they need to do to be healthy on their own. They weren’t taught how to cook healthy meals and exercise wasn’t a priority in their family. They were raised on fast food and TV.
For many young adults, the world of technology has taken over their desire for health. While more information is available to us, we seem to ignore the great things that technology can do to actually make us healthier. Instead, we grab a cheeseburger on our way home from work and plop down on the couch for a night of Netflix.
But this sedentary lifestyle only leads to being overweight and less healthy. We want to change that.
Through the pages on our website, we want to provide young adults with the strategies and lessons they need to live a healthy life. We understand it can be difficult to start living completely independently, and without our parents to cook for us or our college dining hall available, getting fast food can seem like the best option. We want to use our website to change that idea.
Eating Healthy is the First Step
While there are a number of components for being healthy, one of the biggest steps to take is eating healthy. With fast food restaurants on every corner and new apps and websites dedicated to getting a meal delivered to you as quickly as possible, the thought of cooking for ourselves is quickly ignored.
There are a lot of steps to eating healthy meals and for many people, it can seem like too much of a hassle. Between finding a recipe, going to the grocery store, and cooking the meal, waiting 15 minutes for delivery seems like the better option. But what is faster isn’t always best.
The goal of this website is to help individuals who have never needed to cook for themselves find ways to create easy, delicious, and nutritious meals without needing to attend culinary school. While delivery or a drive through may be easier, it isn’t a realistic way to live. It quickly gets expensive and leads to weight gain, feeling lethargic, and general laziness. And while many options are fine for the occasional meal, the longer you live that way the more difficult the habit will be to break.
We take our readers through the various steps of eating healthy. From explaining the various nutrients we need and what foods are rich in those nutrients to giving recipes that can easily be made in the standard kitchen, we remove all excuses as to why someone might be avoiding cooking.
We also consider that sometimes eating out, ordering take out, or picking up something from a fast food restaurant may be necessary. For those occasional times, we help our readers determine their best options for a healthy meal.
Being healthy is extremely important, regardless of age or circumstance. When we consider our health and start to look at the foods we are eating, we can begin to make a connection between the things we eat and how we feel. For someone looking to take control of their health, eating correctly is the first step.Read More
