Anyone who knows me, knows that I've had my 'weird' little health/veg 'tendencies' for lo these many moons. Okay, years. But eating the garbage out there, blinding listening to the governments oh-so-humble opinions on what 'they' 'think' is 'best'.. and reading and talking to knowledeged folks.. okay I admit I am a slow learner. I make mistakes... big ones sometimes. But we all have to keep learning and try and keep moving forward as we learn more all the time what is better, healthier, more effective, yadda yadda.
I have quite the stack of healthy-type books. Prescription for Nutritional Healing, and a few others I can't think of. I have vegetarian books and macrobiotic books. I love them... they are interesting and oddly comforting.. it's nice to know that simple foods, Gods own bounty from the earth... then lovingly and simply prepared, are the best way to heal our bodies without some funky 'cooked up in some lab' pills/shakes/whatever. Yes, I DO find that very, very comforting. God knows better than we do, and He gave us everything we needed.. Leave it to us dorky humans to find ways to louse it up and make it very unhealthy. Prime example. God gave us potatoes.. and we turned it into mass produced, genetically modified french fries. Gag!!
Even a salad... we dump meat, cheese, and dressing all over it to eat it. I want to break this habit. But this habit is the 'norm', and is what 'I' am used to and what my family is used to.. and lets face it... change is not easy. Even today after we got home, I headed for ramen noodles. *sighs* I am such a hypocrite. :(
