A great "reminder" list — all in one place — of the wisdom we've seen in bits and pieces over time.  By consolidating it, it becomes a perfect checklist, Gilly.  I buy the absolute minimum in boxes, cans or bottles … and am horrified when out of temptation (or momentary laziness) I pick up something in the supermarket and read the label!

2 A. Lynn Jesus June 9, 2014 at 1:19 pm

Awesome list! I especially liked the one about recoginizing your food. I have some friends that prefer the square pice of meat or fish because they don't want to have it look like where it came from. I love the visual aspect of food.

There is a good thing in my disease… I've started to eat good things long time ago! Yes, sometimes I like to eat chips and chocolate but my alimentation is based on healthy alimentation!

Great post! We are starting a new detox diet this week that is very natural and rely's on fruit, veggies, and organic meats.

Great list. I'm so thankful that I learned about healthy eating 20+ years ago. I look at the people I graduated high school with and many of them are overweight. Others have serious health issues including one guy who had triple by-pass surgery. Who knows where my health would be if I hadn't learned these principles early on. I strongly encourage anyone reading this past to heed its great advice.

Thanks for sharing these great tips. They are simple and can be easy to implement. 

7 Tina June 5, 2014 at 12:12 pm

It is SO NICE to see a list that is in plain English. I get so confused by the jargon that I don't understand (heck, I can't even remember if my thyroid condition is Hyper or Hypo)!! Thanks so much for this list.

8 Gilly June 7, 2014 at 8:41 am

Tina you are right, there is so much information out there it's hard to get a clear view on health! Not to worry all this is good for the thyroid, hypo or hyper 🙂 LOL

9 Ashley June 5, 2014 at 10:23 am

I've definitely been trying to eat healthier so these are great tips!  Thanks! 

10 Gilly June 7, 2014 at 8:38 am

You're welcome Ashley, great job!

11 Veronica June 5, 2014 at 10:21 am

these are wonderful tips. I have most of these in motion already. Thanks

12 Gilly June 7, 2014 at 8:38 am

Way to go Veronica, so glad you're on the right track! 🙂

13 Roslyn June 5, 2014 at 7:09 am

Great list and suggestions. As I read through I said, yup, do that, check that. Glad to say that the habits I changed awhile ago are working for me. Just need to eat more greens.

14 Pat Moon June 5, 2014 at 1:14 pm


I’m so proud of you! You are doing great.

Thanks for sharing.

Great tips and suggestions. When I shop for veggies, I usually end up buying the frozen veggies. They are so much better than buying things in a can. Plus they last longer too.

16 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:03 pm

I agree, the flavour stands out better instead of being sugared down in the preservatives. What would we do without a freezer! 🙂

17 kungphoo June 4, 2014 at 7:33 pm

Super healthy eating list.. really like number 4 and number 19

18 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:06 pm

Yes number 3 makes is easy to just think colour when your stumped for veggies. When I go grocery shopping I'm looking for colour 🙂 And number 19 is all about fats our bodies need!

19 Cheryl Relf June 4, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Thank you Gilly for a great reminder ~ eating what's right is the foundation to remain active through our years! 

20 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:09 pm

You're welcome Cheryl 🙂 You bet, right from birth the proper nutrients are what keeps us healthy fit.

21 Nate June 4, 2014 at 1:59 pm

It's refreshing to know that most of the items that Gill has listed in the article are super foods that I eat on a daily and weekly basis.  Good eating doesn't have to be terrible.  As long as you know what's out there and know some basics you shouldn't have trouble finding good foods to eat!

22 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:12 pm

Way to go Nate, super! Yes these foods are very easy to purchase and keep, so it's not difficult to stay healthy! Good eating is amazing 🙂

23 Pat Moon June 5, 2014 at 1:11 pm


Actually eating good is easier than eating unhealthy once you make it a part of your lifestyle. In the long run its cheaper too.

Thanks for reading and commenting.


24 Heather Cameron June 4, 2014 at 1:51 pm

Great advice. It reminds me of the 101 Food Rules, my favourite being don't eat anything with an ingredient your grandmother won't recongize.

25 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:16 pm

That is a great model to live by Heather! As the years go by hopefully people will be eating better or they'll be saying our great eating models are our  –  great, great, great Grandparents! 

26 Meryl Hershey Beck June 4, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Great post. All great ideas for keping healthy. We live such active lives it is not always easy to choose the best things for our bodies. You have given some great, simple and easy things to do that will keep us on track and feeling good. 

27 Gilly June 4, 2014 at 10:21 pm

Thank you Meryl 😀 it is hard when life is so busy! it's one of those things you have plan for and have food ready for quick snacks or meals.
