Big Changes!

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

I've been reading everything I can get my hands on by Dr. Fuhrman. He has written Eat to Live and a bunch of other things. I read the first book in one night, even though he expressed in his book how important it is to get enough sleep.
I know how obsessed I can be when I get a new idea into my head, but his research and experience makes sense to me. I am especially prone to agreeing with his nutritional philosophy because it seems to mirror what God intended for us from the beginning.
So, I watched the videos, read the books, and yesterday we went shopping. The whole family helped pick out tons of fruits and veggies. My husband said, "This is just for a week?!" But we came away with a lower grocery bill than if we'd gone to the processed foods aisles. I especially loved the bulk foods section. I had no idea my regular supermarket had such a variety available.
I haven't completely won over my family on the Eating Like a Nutrarian lifestyle, but I got them to commit for six weeks. They at least love the fruits and nuts.
Here's to big changes!!!

    I feel so silly, it's Nutritarian, not Nutrarian. emoticon

    Congrats Jillian! Way to go on getting the rest of the family involved. I too have found that my grocery bill has decreased since starting my semi-nutritarian plan. It's a little expensive all at once, but I juice so I make enough to last a few weeks at a time and freeze my left-overs. That way what I need to buy lessens a little with each trip!

Let's do this together! emoticon
