On Monday I wrote a blog post called A Fork Stuck in the Road, which you can read HERE. The gist of the post was to lament about my difficulty with eating the right things. I know what to eat and all that jazz. I just don’t do it.
In a weird way, I feel like the food I’ve been eating has been passively poisoning me. I know the word poison is a strong one, but it accurately describes the impact certain foods have on my body. I haven’t been feeling energetic, healthy, or rested in some months. That could be for any number of reasons but for today’s post, I’m gonna focus on the food.
A bunch of you wrote some GREAT comments on my blog and on my Facebook page. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I got suggestions for foods, books, and even videos. All the suggestions I got were awesome. I was very excited to order some books and/or videos online so I could learn more about nutrition, food, and health.
Now you’re probably thinking, “She doesn’t know about all this already?” Yes and no. I have a general knowledge of about nutrition and the way our bodies work. What I confess to being ignorant about, is where my food comes from. Over the years we’ve all heard about eating organic, buying local, grow your own garden, and so on. I will tell you, until TODAY, I didn’t really pay attention. I mean, I’d heard some of the arguments for and against different grocery shopping and eating practices, but I never really took it seriously.
