Good and bad foods: health
junk food man “You are what you eat”, goes a well known saying. It’s not quite true but its message really means that if you eat healthy foods, you are most likely to be healthy. If you eat nothing but corn chips, you won’t get to look like a corn cob but you certainly won’t be fit and healthy. This is because your body needs a good mix of foods.


Good foods

Almost anything fresh is a good start. Better still is fresh organic food.

Oily fish

Vegetables, particularly orange- or dark green ones (carrots, chard, broccoli, squashes like pumpkins)


Oats and other fibre-rich grains

Pulses (beans, peas)

Certain vegetable oils which are high in monounsaturates (olive, canola)

good foods: oats, fish
fresh food shop
good foods: veg, fruit


(By ‘bad’, I don’t mean they will make you sick or anything. Just that you should eat them in moderation.)
