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!!!
