Do you love yourself? Do you love your family and believe you are the best decision maker for them and not the government, state, city, school? Take minute and ask yourself, honestly, How in charge of your daily life and decisions are you? Do you allow the television to tell your children what they should wear, how they should act, what is socially acceptable, and most importantly what they should eat? How many times to you allow yourself to make poor diet decisions because there is a McDonalds every 100 yards, and its just easier, or you are to tired to cook?
Now I am not here to tell you how to live, but I can speak to what works for me. I’ve been through several very serious injuries in the past several years. PTSD, which debilitated me for almost a year,Torn bicep muscle, Broken back, and all at one time in my right leg, a broken patellar punch defect with matching femoral head defect, partially torn medial collateral ligament tear, torn soleus muscle, and a concussion.
Physical activity decreases with injury, couple that with bad food choices and BAM! you are 25 lbs heavier almost over night. What can you do to combat this? feed your mind. Ask yourself if all those freak post about Monsanto and home gardening are really wrong. What are the most productive food choices we can make that are good for us, chemical free, and fulfilling but most importantly healthy.
Yes I know the “Organic” label is expensive, do you have a porch and can get a hold of a couple of flower pots? can you add in a non chemically produced salad 3 times a week?
The video link below is very interesting, it is an ad, for which I have no ties to, but the cost info isn’t until the end. The historical documentation of how our food got to what it is today is worth the 20 minutes of your time as well as the illustrations.
Make your own decisions but know that if an animal won’t eat it, you probably shouldn’t either. Cavemen died from climate change, not paraben(chemical inmost all soaps, lotions and make up) based cancer and high-fructose corn syrup or processed sugar.
I eat no less than 2 8 oz probiotic (Kefir and Stonyfield organic Greek yogurt) servings a day, fruits and vegetables and go to the gym, we all get older and that can’t be changed but you set the bar for every day until the end. Don’t let your children lose to bad marketing, educate yourself, teach them to grow and enjoy tomatoes, cut out sodas, and enjoy this awesome planet we were given. Oh! a little secret, all the cool things are outside–j
