The critical part of a healthy diet is variety.
For good health, your body needs 40 nutrients and these are
best provided by food. Fruits and vegetables supply fibre and
a wealth of essential vitamins and minerals. Milk and dairy
products are packed with calcium, but be sure to select low-fat
varieties. Lean meats, fish, poultry, and dried beans provide
protein, but don't overdo—two 100g servings a day are
adequate. Whole-grain breads and cereals supply fibre and complex
carbohydrates and should make up the major part of your diet.

You don't have to run marathons to stay in
condition. Try to walk briskly for 15 minutes twice a day,
that can be enough to keep your heart and major muscle groups
in adequate shape.

sleep - No more late night TV
Both your mind and body need adequate sleep.

too young or too old to be a gardener - It's always good
You are never so old you should stop gardening
or too young to start. One easy and fun way to watch your kids

can be a wonderful experience, and sometimes little hands can
be a big help, everyone enjoys watching something that they
have planted and tended grow.

- Eat local food, try to avoid imported foods
Whether you grow some of your own food or
not, eating locally, and often seasonally, is a practical and
common sense way to behave. There is really no other way forward
for mankind, as the carbon age comes to an end, the days of
transporting so much food across oceans and continents must
come to an end also.
Under Cover & Indoor
Gardening - Grow anything at anytime and anywhere
Growing in Greenhouses and indoors are favourites
of the GrowGood team. Unfortunately in modern times many people
are restricted to growing indoors either because they have
no garden or anything grown in the garden is at risk of being
vandalised or stolen. To grow indoors successfully more often
than not requires the use of artificial lighting, at least
for extending the photoperiod, for example giving the plants
a full 12 hours of light each day during the winter months
and up to 18 hours a day before flowering.
