DAY 10 – Healthy Eating Myth & Truth
MYTH: Meal kits are always healthy
TRUTH: Meal kits have become increasingly popular, especially during the pandemic while we were all in quarantine, but they are not always healthy. They can save you time and add variety to your meals by trying things you wouldn’t normally try. However, you have to be very diligent in selecting meals to ensure they are truly healthy. Most of the meal kit companies allow you to select a plan like “Low Calorie” or “Vegetarian” but you should be checking out the ingredients and nutritional values prior to ordering the meal. For example, you might see a “lower calorie” menu option but is that calorie amount right for you and your needs each day? It’s an arbitrary label that’s not monitored or controlled by anyone except that company. Is the sodium content off the charts? That’s often the case. So proceed with caution and make sure you are truly getting not just convenience but also healthy, fresh food.

Something to Think About
Isn’t this an incredible truth? As humans we are so familiar with change. The seasons change, our lives change, the people around us change, even we change, yet God remains the same. He has always been the same powerful, good, gracious God that He will always be. This is why it is so important for us to build a house on the foundation of our faith in Him. Everything else will age and change, but our God will remain the same forever.
