I want to make sure this is clear.
This is just my thoughts and opinion.
I have seen, first hand, how food can heal and change lives. I have also strung together stories from strangers and family members and realized through our dietary needs, that if you eat crap, your body will treat you like crap.
I am just a dad, husband and a fed up consumer that realizes that we have been led astray by large corporations that want to sell their products. Enough of that!
Sickness and decay is not normal. Health and vitality is our default setting. Just because we are aging, we don’t have to fall apart.
I am begging you to not wait until you or someone you love gets ill, sick, cancer or dies before making diet and lifestyle changes. We all know that we should eat better.
I have found many great examples of people healing themselves and turning their life around with the power of good, healthy food choices.
We all know the saying “you are what you eat”, but when you are addicted to processed, easy food, it is hard to make that commitment.
I wish that I would have understood this much earlier. My parents did their job and taught me the common sense things like, eating meals as a family and teaching your children to cook. I put the blame on our weak, paid-for government and the large corporations that truly run our country. Apparently health doesn’t bring in enough revenue.
Please make your family’s health priority and choose to pay more now for good healthy foods.
How did our priorities get so screwed up?
Why is it, we are so eager to spend so much money on fancy cars, posh homes and then cheap out by trying to save money on our food?
Should that not be our priority or at least high on the list of importance??
I realize, first hand, how hard these changes are to make. Believe me, when I say that there has been very few days where I am not wondering, “what am I going to make for the next 3 meals?”. It does get better, but I have made that commitment, that we are never going back to a life of easy or cheap food. I have heard someone say that “you pay the farmer/grocer now or pay the doctors later”.
I urge you to start where you can today! Make better choices and balance your life.
- Support local farmer’s markets and start a garden.
- Teach your children to cook.
- Don’t give up or give in.
Be healthy and love life.
