There is no need for strict rules to deciding what to eat. Make the perfect food choice everytime by asking yourself a series of questions.

The second question to ask yourself is, "What do I need?" While food decisions aren't "good" or "bad," clearly some foods offer more nutritional benefits than others.  

As you consider what food to choose, ask yourself, "What does my body need?" Keep in mind the principles of variety, balance, and moderation when deciding what to eat. Consider nutritional information, your personal health issues, your family history, what else you are eating that day and how your body responds to certain foods.  

Enjoy your healthy choices by focusing on fresh foods, appealing combinations, new flavors, and interesting recipes.  

In my next post I’ll talk about Question #3: What Do I Have?
