Life is such a journey! I have been spending lots of time visiting with my middle daughter. She is such an excellent example of eating healthily. Once upon a time when the kids were little we only ate from our organic garden and all bread was made at home. Gradually over time, as I started to work more, my diet choices suffered and were not always the best. We still ate from our garden but other foods crept into our lives. Think ores and microwave popcorn and just run of the mill basic JUNK food.
My daughter started me thinking when she said that she felt so fortunate that in her formative years she was exposed to such good food and eating habits. Wow I DID used to have very good eating habits and food choices! What in the world happened!!! Then I decided it would be counter productive to try and figure out all of that! I guess the SHORT story would be LIFE happened! The great part about that is that I can change it back to the way it was before I got side tracked!
ENTER the vita mix blender and green smoothies, trips to the Whole Foods store to supplement what we don't have growing, lots of green veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts and spending a little more time in the kitchen. EXIT the white carbs, processed foods, meats, frozen healthy choice meals and sugar.
Ahhhh I really am returning to my old ways and I am ecstatic!
