Boiled down to basics, healthy eating is about eating nutritious foods most of the time, in portions that your body needs , and choosing foods high in fat, sugar, salt and/or calories least often. Or as Michael Pollan, author of many popular books on eating, says, “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” An apple a day is a good start.
