Eating and living so healthy to the point you know where most of your food sources come from should not just be a trend- but a requirement. Acquiring organic, artisanal and just plain healthy, whole food items is getting more widely available in commercial markets.

Even if you think you are not that good at cooking just try seared fish or baked chicken with easy boiled/stir-fried vegetables. A lot of simple, beginner cooking can also easily be healthy cooking.

Clean foods or reasonably clean foods with exercise is actually more delicious than rich food you eat out, some people do not realize this right away because preservatives, too much sugar/salt messes with a person’s palate.
