Diet is pretty important for a lot of things in your life. Not only does it affect the long term outlook of your health (which is the number one thing most people consider); it also can hit your short term health, such as dental problems, quicker weight gain, and even the onset of diabetes.
That’s why it’s important to take diet seriously. Too many people wave off the idea that food can impact your health so much for the better, acting like “it hasn’t killed me yet.” And while that may be true for older generations as they grew up, our foods have become far more processed and genetically modified to trust that food came from a local farmer and it’s organic as can be.
You see, a big part of all of this is discipline. A lot of people claim that eating healthier isn’t as great because it tastes worse, costs more, and is more work in general to prepare. None of those things are true, however, as it all comes down to disciplining yourself. So, yes, maybe it does take a little more work in the beginning for you to research your healthy foods, find where the best places to buy those are, and put together different recipes you’ve never tried in order to find something you like in particular.
For example, last night I had quinoa and hummus in lettuce boats. And I cannot tell you how much those things tasted like tacos with zero meat in them. I asked my girlfriend where she found the recipe and she said “I didn’t. I was just sort of craving these things so I put it all together.” I couldn’t believe that something so whimsically thought up could taste so great.
What’s neat about this is that it wouldn’t work so well with other unhealthy foods. Those typically cannot be thrown together willy nilly like healthier foods can.
But what all this goes to show is that your life matters enough to change your diet today. And another thing you should be doing today is getting life insurance. Without it, you could leave your family and dependents in significant financial ruin without your source of income contributing to the bills.
So, don’t wait on either of these things. Life insurance is far too important to neglect, just like how your general health relies on your diet and exercise day to day.
