Today in class, we talked about nutrition and how much saturated fat and sodium and sugar was in our food, and how we don’t really think about it. Nutrition is always the forgotten part of being healthy. Eating healthily can improve the way your body functions, providing it more sufficiently energy.
In class, I learned that a lot of the foods I eat have a lot more sodium that I realized. My baked chicken, that I thought was pretty healthy, actually had about 503 mg of sodium. But I wonder where it comes from? Was it what the chicken ate while it was alive, or from how the chicken was processed afterwards? The cheese I would put on my baked potato made the sodium count skyrocket and the salt didn’t help. Otherwise, this assignment made me realize how much sodium, fat, and sugar I’m really putting into my body.
