Do you live to eat or eat to live? While some people regard food as a mere means of sustenance, others have passion for good food and regard themselves as ‘foodies’. No matter which group you belong to, you will agree that food has a vital role to play in our lives as a person’s diet is linked closely to good health and well being.
While the consumption of foods such as blueberries and chia seeds referred to as ‘super’ foods is considered to be beneficial, the consumption of other foods, for example, sugary food is thought to detrimental to good health. As new diseases and illness are discovered every day, people who seem to relatively healthy are considered to be fortunate or ‘lucky.'
