    Thanks for a very well-written blog.  I agree with you that we should all strive to eat better and healthier, but that this can be difficult with our busy lives, etc.

    Going on a “detox diet” is always a good idea, whether it’s after a 10 day vacation abroad or otherwise.  I used to do a week-long “detox diet” once a year where I alternated between vegetable and fruit juices, followed by nothing but water for a few days.   And I felt wonderful afterwards!

    We should always be eating well.  That’s for sure!   I’m a firm believer in “You are what you eat”.  And it’s amazing how the right diet can eliminate disease from your body!

    Interesting what you said about foods that can “damage or destroy internally”.  I’ve often suspected that some foods can cause chronic low-grade inflammation in the system, especially for those of us of a certain age.  According to what I read about it, “An unresolved inflammatory response is likely to be involved from the early stages of disease development.”

    This is also very good advice:  Check the ingredient label every time you buy a product, as no two products are the same.  If we knew all the ingredients that go into each product that we buy, we would probably stop buying them altogether and grow our own.

    As you say:  “Our bodies thank us for inputting whole, nutritious foods and thrives on it.”  How true!

    Thank you very much for all your advice. The truth is that rushing is not good when we want to eat well. We run the risk of eating too much processed food. Personally, what has been very good for us is to cut down on processed food. I think that controlling what we buy is crucial.

    You are very right about the fact that when we travel we are usually less inclined to control what we eat. However, this doesn’t make much sense, as health is always just as important. One thing I have noticed is that when I travel I drink very little water. Keeping in mind all the recommendations you give is very important. Sometimes, we are so busy that we don’t even realize we are thirsty!

    Personally, what I find worse is the mix of rushing and children. I have two children and the older one has always eaten very well, but the younger one is much more selective and I find it very difficult to get him to eat fruit and vegetables.I run out of ideas for healthy snacks! I might have to buy some fruit and nut bars for when we don’t have any homemade snacks.

    Thank you very much for sharing this information which I think is very useful.ç

    Best Regards,

    Marta
