When I was growing up if I wanted to research something I headed to the library, looked in the card catalog and/or encyclopedia until I gathered all of the information that I needed. Now days if I need information I simply look on my computer. Because information is so readily available, I consider myself better educated in many areas, especially anything health and diet related. Easy access to information means that I am paying closer attention to how the choices I make have a bigger impact on me and/or my family. This knowledge has changed my grocery shopping habits and the way that we prepare food for our family.
I now frequently buy veggies and lean meats. We bake or grill and use less fat but more flavoring. Even my kids are starting to appreciate eating right - tonight my 11 year old asked me to make brussels sprouts for dinner tomorrow! (This was totally a proud mom moment for me!). Although our diets are much more veggie-centric, because we both work it is sometimes more realistic to use a combination of fresh and canned ingredients versus cooking everything from scratch.
I certainly encourage anyone interested in a better diet to do their own research and consult with a physician and/or registered dietitian. Here is some additional information to get you started
