Whole foods, living the good life
It would seem common sense, knowing what we do, that humans would eat what serves our bodies well – those foods that help make us stronger, faster, smarter, more efficient, capable of fighting disease and illness and better able to live a longer and healthier life. How strange is it, then, that we often gravitate to the very things that will sicken and even kill us?
Our society is an obvious source of misinformation and temptation to enter the cycle of consumer spending, consumption and pharmaceutical dependency. But, we all have options to go beyond what we see around us and seek what we know is better. The confusion lies in sorting through the “facts” we are presented with to find the truth. Luckily, it’s not very complicated. It’s just difficult to override learned tendencies and extricate ourselves from what we perceive as accepted, comfortable and familiar.
So, now what? You take charge of the choices you make, you re-educate yourself and you get busy living the good life, your life. You empty your refrigerator and cupboards of toxins, you start shopping the perimeter of your grocery store where the produce, meats and healthy foods live. You return to the shelf the items that have ingredients you can’t pronounce or don’t recognize as real food. You start talking to people about clean eating, sharing the challenges, recipes and excitement of new taste sensations. You’ll begin to influence others and the planet in a very positive way.
Like detoxifying from all unhealthy things, there will be a short period of discomfort. But at the other end is a lifetime of energy, vitality, confidence and radiance. I can’t promise that it will be easy to change your food lifestyle in the first few weeks, but I can promise that it’s worth it. You’re worth it. ~Coach Lorrie
