Positive Sprouts for Healty Eating

Positive Sprouts from the Boys and Girls Club of America

positivesprouts3 Positive Sprouts for Healty Eating

If someone were to tell me that people don’t eat fresh fruits and vegetables, I would not have believed you.  At least not before I moved to the area I live in, that is!  When we moved here, I could not believe what people ate.  I mean, I’m known for having cake for breakfast – just ask anyone that I have morning meetings with.   But I do mix in healthy foods during my day. 

The Boys and Girls Club of America, along with Amway, want to change that.  Amway?  That's kind of an odd partnership, isn't it?  To some, it may be.  You can find out more about the relationship between Boys and Girls Club of America and Amway here. They’ve teamed up to help teach BGCA members about the importance of eating healthy foods and having a balanced diet.  They are doing this in a few ways.

Why Whole Grains are Important

How to find whole grain products

When we were kids, we were told that cereal was healthy for us.  We ate cereal by the bowl full.  We even had cereal for a snack.  Then, when we were older, it was announced that hey, maybe cereal isn’t the best thing for us to have.  For me, this came when I was in college.  We still ate it by the bowl full, as we were college kids.  Only now we’d have cereal for dinner. 

 Now that I’m a full-fledged adult, cereal is good for you again.  One of the main reasons is that whole grains are being used.  This is important, as highly processed grains have become more commonplace over the years.  When food is processed, it strips the nutrients out.  General Mills is one of the leaders in this arena.  They have changed the main ingredient in their cereals to whole grains instead of the highly processed grains that had become popular.  [Read more…]
