Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, Food Inc. Hungry for Change, Food Matters and Farmageddon....
All documentarys I watched on Netflix. Normally I wouldn't have watched them, but after watching Fat Sick and nearly dead I was drawn to them, like a moth to a flame, and yes I got singed. I will never be able to live in the bliss of ignorance again...but...I will never again have to live in the horror of ignorance about what I'm putting in my body, anymore.
These documentarys, challenged, changed and really pumped me up.
I bought a juicer...and started juicing regularly which led to an almost obsession with produce. all those foods like Kale that I would never eat, I regularly consume in my juice. Its exciting when I see how many healthy nutrients I'm putting in my body.
I normally drink a juice a day and the rest of the day its about veggies and whole grains and lean proteins.
The very first week I was astounded by how good I felt. Its been about a month now. My skin is clearer, my mind is clearer., I have energy, I'm excited about getting my health back. I'm drinking clear water about 14-16 glasses a day, my body feels extremely energized and I'm just happier all round.
My windowsill has kale and celery and pears on it, my counter has a squash, and bananas.
My fridge is full of everything veggie, my freezer has frozen bananas for smoothies and sfrozen green grapes, blueberries, strawberries and peaches.
I'm excited to learn about and be using Flax seed, Chia seed, Cocunut oil...can I get an amen for the Coconut oil. I think I might want to invest in Cocunut oil. Next week I'm going to buy this stuff called Spirulina a type of blue algae that's extremely healthy.
Its amazing to me how if you give your body only good things, it only wants good things.
Its amazing how bad we feel and don't even realize it...until we suddenly feel good.
My head feels so clear and I didn't know it was even foggy.
My husband made fettucinni Alfredo last night....a weakness of mine...I didn't want it...I wanted my stir fry.
If you haven't discovered juicing...I highly recommend. Juicing is part of my morning routine and its become almost a sacred thing with me.
I also highly recommend watching the documentaries I mentioned above....if you can only watch one...I'd say watch Food Matters.
have a great day...whoot whoot.
