Healthy Foods - Am I missing it?

How would you know if you are eating healthy foods?  I must admit that when it comes to food I am probably one of those people who never followed the food pyramid.  I ate what is available or whatever I feel like eating.

I know that importance of following the food pyramid but then again most of the time I chose convenience rather than planning a menu for the whole week.  I think this is also one of the reasons why I easily gain weight which sometimes tempting me to take any weightloss products.

Another reason why I never really plan for a week menu is that I live alone and it doesn't make sense to cook food while I know that I will eat alone.  Sometimes it is more tiring to prepare for yourself rather than you are preparing for someone special........

Hello Grace...I totally understand your dilemma on what to cook when living alone. I have raised a family and never ever had to wonder as my job was easy and everyone ate whatever I cooked. Now I am alone and I have had to change my diet from healthy to light and healthy. I eat a lot more salads, fish and omelette's and veggies as they are easily prepared.
It helps that I am not a meat eater so it is easier to plan simple and quick~
