What is Nutrition?

Nutrition is both an art and science.

Scientifically, the right balance of foods will promote better health and wellness. Appropriate percentages of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, along with an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals, are likely to also promote peak performance and better bodily functions.

Artistically, nutrition is brought to life by combining foods that are visually appealing and flavorful. Enticing aromas and visual displays of food can stimulate many of the senses.

This blog is about good nutrition. I teach nutrition to medical professionals at the University of Illinois and would like to share my viewpoint and educational tips with a wider audience.

Soon, you will be reading about how to decipher a healthy meal from one that is all smoke and mirrors. Soon, you will understand why you should eat healthy meals and snacks. Soon, you will be better equipped to judge the health value of meals served to you at restaurants. Along the way, you can practice what I preach and see for yourself how better nutrition can lead to better health, physically and mentally, and more control over the foods and drinks you consume.

Please comment any time and if you have questions, please send them along. I will do my best to answer any and all questions related to nutriton.

Eat well, live well, stay healthy.
