Lazy and Mis-informed

That is apparently what most of us Canadians are.

A new report that looks at eating trends in Canada suggests that Canadians are eating fewer homemade meals, and gravitating toward convenient pre-packaged meals.

Canadian households consumed an average of 380 meals with homemade dishes in 2009, down from 398 in 2008 and 423 in 2003.

Halifax dietitian Tristaca Caldwell says she always prefers her clients to eat homemade foods.

This is a sad state of affairs.

How is this possible? With the vast array of knowledge available to us, most if it just at our fingertips, how is it that people continue to make mis-informed, uneducated, healthy life choices.

Are you that lazy that you don't want to read the ingredients or pick up a book to find out what you are about to put in your body?

I really don't get it.

PEOPLE! Take ownership of your health and well being - Be accountable for you diets and what you use to fuel your bodies.
