There's a Mystery Ingredient in Your Ice Cream that you might want to know about. Eating well can sometimes seem like the hardest thing in the world. Should you be vegan and eat nothing but wheat grass? What about our ancestors who ate plenty of meat? How did they make it? What about sugar? Or fats? All of these questions are good ones to ask about your basic nutrition and diet and for the health and well being of every one in your care.

Although it has plenty of detractors, national food guides are not the worst place to start to look in your quest to ensure that your family eats well. Of course, you need to know that this guide is compiled, at least in some part, by the influence of lobby groups including the dairy councils, meat councils, egg councils and so on. On the other hand, the scope of what has come to be included in this compilation of foods to balance your diet has broadened significantly to include soy products, for example, or to note that vegetarians can also follow this guide to eat well. Still, some people believe, often with good research and evidence, that certain ingredients such as additives and preservatives, have not been well enough researched to be included in food stuffs that we eat every day. The mystery ingredient is one of those ingredients.

It can be difficult to know how to eat to stay fit and well. One pretty sure guide is how you feel after you eat something. Any food that does not sit well, causes you to bloat up like a balloon, upsets your stomach, or causes you any digestive pain, needs a second look. Foods that cause you to start to sniff or sneeze, or that close up your throat or nasal passages may indicate allergies.
