What does it mean — wholesome eating? It’s a topic that has been covered a lot lately. The idea of wholesome eating isn’t a new concept. Many think it means eating whole foods, for instance, eating a whole fruit or vegetable. But I would go a step further to say that in addition to whole foods, wholesome eating is making sure one incorporates all food groups in the diet and in reasonable portions.

Eating at Naturally Chinese is an ethos of family eating, where the meal is typically shared. Sharing a meal is beneficial on so many levels. Aside from a good feeling of well being that comes from sitting down with others to eat, one can also monitor portion sizes (which are an important factor in eating healthily). A meal at Naturally Chinese would typically include a main dish of fish/seafood, some kind of meat or vegetable, a side of greens, a soup or a side of rice. So therefore, one can get the benefit of a wide variety of nutrients and colours in the meal. And of course, a glass of wine brings pleasure and enhances the whole dining experience.

In our hectic daily schedules, eating habits can get out of sync with what our bodies need. The important thing to remember is that our eating needs are paramount. This is all closely linked to our health and taking a little time out of our day to really focus on our eating will do wonders for us in the long run.
