It’s time to make some changes. I’ve been dealing with some health issues and that is spurring me on to make some changes to what I eat, and products I use. I am convinced that chemicals in products I have used over the years have contributed, in part, to various health issues. And, while I have always tried to eat somewhat healthy, I love my sweets. And, over the years, it has gotten incredibly easy to prepare boxed, processed food for meals. Meals full of yucky stuff. I want to slowly change that.
I know this is gonna be a long process. And getting my family on board may be my biggest challenge. I don’t want to go to extremes, but I definitely want change. I’ve already started paying attention to the amount of sugar I consume. I’ve cut back on how much sugar I put in my coffee, maybe eventually no sugar in my coffee? I’m looking at the sugar content on labels. There is sugar everywhere! I used to always just look at the fat content of foods, never paying any attention to how much sugar was in something.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading, have watched a few documentaries about food and health. There is a lot of information out there, and so many different “diets” or “ways of eating”. It’s a little overwhelming. But, I want to feel better. So, I’m gonna dive in and see what I can come up with that will work for me, and hopefully, my family.
More fruits and veggies, organic. Less processed foods. More recipes for good, healthy meals. Way less sugar. I need to check out our local farmers market. And maybe investigate Whole Foods and Trader Joes. And taking time to find healthy options at the grocery store. I can do this right? Oh, I’m a little stressed just thinking about it! Lol
If you read my blog, you know I’ve already started reducing chemical in my life. I’ve removed chemical-filled cleaning products. I’m making changes to products I use for makeup and skin care, etc. I realize now that any product that comes in contact with my skin gets absorbed. Why fill my body with chemicals?
One thing at a time, one day at a time. Constantly moving toward better health.
