remember when i was being a whiny bitch the other day and going on about how the food we eat is crap? i still think so but instead of being a negative whore about it, i'm going to continue doing what i'm doing and living a healthy life for me and my family.
this means that:
++ i'll continue to eat fresh, wholesome foods. my rule of thumb: avoid anything that comes out of a box, bag or can. the only exceptions to this: oatmeal and whole grain bread.
do you know that since i started this whole journey of mine, we haven't eaten any processed foods? that's over TWO YEARS of avoiding that garbage. this includes fast food too. but that doesn't mean i don't miss it...because damn, mcdonald's sure knows how to make yummy fries.
i may eat a burger but only at a fancy restaurant where they grind the meat and make the patties fresh and then charge me a million dollars for it. even then, i feel guilty about that so i only eat half the gluten free bun and get a salad instead of fries which totally ruins the experience but whatever.
++ visit the local farmer's market every weekend and buy their tiny locally grown produce for eleventy billion dollars. and not rage while i'm at it because i can't put a price tag on health, right? for real, i looked at the blueberries last year and they were microscopic and almost $6 for a pint WHAT?!
++ continue to buy organic meat that costs me half my monthly mortgage. ok, i'm being overly-dramatic here but $9 for 4 legs? antiobiotic/hormone-free/free range/grain fed chickens are damn expensive. kind of makes me want to go vegetarian. in the mean time, i'll be searching for local farmers who raise and sell their meat naturally (free range/hormone-free/antibiotic-free).
++ continue to rage when i see crazy prices for organics. and then suck it up and buy them anyway. i mean, $8 for a pint of strawberries? $12 per pound for chicken breasts? #RAGE.
how are you living healthy?
