Hiddy Ho I am continuing my adventure with Organic and Non GMO. It is going very well. I feel great and have a lot of energy and I have been sleeping very well! The sleeping thing is amazing, because usually I have great difficulty sleeping.
Based upon the research and documentaries I have been watching I have also decided to go plant based. I have not mentioned this to anyone in my family yet, and no one has really noticed, or said anything that I have not been eating meat for about a week now. The last time I ate meat was dinner Father’s Day. I mainly did this because I did not want to make a big deal about my decision, and my parents would notice if I did not eat the meat. Since then I have been making Vegan meals at home. I few nights I made a protein for the men in my house. But again, no one said anything when I ate a portobello mushroom burger and salad for dinner last night.
I am not going to go full Vegan, at least not right now. I have decided I am going to eat meat very rarely and only Chicken, Fish or Eggs, but for the most part it is Vegan. I have based this decision on my health. I can no longer ignore or be blinded to what the industry is doing to our food and environment. Our food is being altered and is harmful, and no one says anything because the corporations run everything. I feel I can not eat meat safely, because I do not know what they are feeding the animals and how they are treated. I do not want to go back to being ignorant or ignoring all of this information just to eat a hamburger. I feel I can be best to my body by feeding it healthy organically grown food.
I am expecting to have to argue my decision with a great many people when they find out. I am ready to do that.
Here is my new theme song to help me: (sorry for the bad language)
“I am not messing around with my life, no more.” I am not going to take my health for granted any more and I am going to be proactive in preserving it.
I am going to ask my family to watch a few documentaries:
What the Health
Forks over Knives
Plant Pure Nation
To see if I can get them on board. I am hoping to try and get them to do a two week trial, and see where we can go from there. I will let you know what they decide….
I have been doing it only a week and I literally feel better. I am able to get my 10,000 steps a day no problem. Some days I go way over that, and almost feel like I have some energy to spare. I have also been able to up my walk in the morning from 25 minutes to almost an hour, since it is summer and I don’t have to get kids ready for school. I really love my walk. It really clears my head and prepares me for the day. I listen to my new theme song and just go!
Here are some of the meals we had:
Little more food for thought….
