Why does healthy eating choices have to be a ‘diet’?

A friend posted a photo of her dinner last night………. salmon teryaki and steamed broccoli.  It looked amazing!   I wish i liked salmon.  Following the photo was a frenzy of comments surrounding the new diet she must be following.  She responded….. not following a diet protocol, just making wiser choices surrounding my allergies and health.  

And I thought to myself, shouldn’t all eating choices be that way.   Based on your needs.   This morning’s breakfast:  three eggs, tomatoes, fresh spinach and New Zealand Cheddar cheese.   Simple.  Satisfying.   Because I wanted an omelette for breakfast.  

Perhaps, we should consider reducing processed foods instead of just persuing a diet prtotocol.
