Nutrition – Food for Fuel

Food Is Fuel

Food is necessary for us all. It fuels our bodies for function – from the basic sustainment of life, to the energy output we need to live life to its fullest!

The sheer variety of food around the world means we can choose creates an endless combination of flavors, textures and nutrients.

We each have very individual likes and dislikes, sensitivities and even food allergies. However, we ALL have SIMILAR basic nutritional needs.

Good nutrition means eating the right balance of a variety of foods necessary to support good health.

For our purposes, we will focus on the following:

  • Macronutrients
  • Food groups
  • Eating for long-term health
  • Easy healthy recipes
