I let myself get away from good healthy eating habits, and I think that is why I have not been feeling well. My resistance was low, and I have been spending alot of time in doctors offices with my Dad, around too many sick people and too many germs.
I am going to start today to get back to healthy "green" eating. Mostly vegetarian with occasional meat. Avoiding bread, pasta and sugar. I started eating "green" about 5 years ago, but when I get frustrated or tired or I'm rushing around, I go back to grabbing anything that does not need to be prepared.
I have read about "green smoothies" and enjoy making and drinking them. I have been lazy about it, they are not that difficult, a few minutes to wash and chop the ingredients. Today, I checked out some websites and copied down a dozen recipes for green smoothies and will make one tonite (instead of eating bagels and canned soup and pudding). It's no fun cooking for one person, but I think I can spend a few minutes to make something fresh and healthy. I want to avoid all processed foods.
A few minutes of work to improve my health is a good deal.
I don't want to spend the next 30 or 40 years visiting 7 different doctors and taking a dozen or more prescriptions like most of the seniors that I know. Nutrition is the only way I know to counteract this. I think all of the processed foods created in the 50's have created all of the health problems of today.
I don't want to sound preachy, but I have spent many, many years driving family and friends to many doctors appointments, and none of their health has been improved by the prescriptions.
Most of us know that we should eat better, but are tempted by all of the "fake foods" around us. I fell off the wagon, but I am getting back on a healthy eating plan starting right now.
