It’s approaching summer and a lot of us will be doing the backyard barbecue, attending family reunions, birthday parties or just friendly get togethers. Whether it’s pot luck or not, please strive to feed others good food.
I see so many people piling on the heavy fatty meat products, salads packed with mayonnaise, and high fat sweet desserts. Sometimes there not a green vegetable or fresh fruit in sight for miles. With diabetes at epic proportions here in the US, most people can benefit from eating a healthy diet of plant based foods with limited processed foods and smaller amounts of meats and high fat, high sugar options. Over 100 million people in the US either have diabetes or are at risk for developing it.
Eat organic whenever you can. Pesticides were not meant to be ingested.
When you love someone, feeding them good food is a confirmation of your appreciation and admiration. It says that you want them around for a long time and you’re willing to go the extra mile if need be to give them the best.
Here’s some FOOD FOR THOUGHT…
Here’s to your Lifetime Health!
Observations On the Go
This week everyone is talking about gratitude and Thanksgiving, and I hope they are really grateful for everything they have. I had the pleasure of spending some time with a few homeless people earlier this month. They were truly grateful for the gifts we brought to them. It was only a few blankets but their eyes said everything. They were surprised at the help from total strangers and probably wondering why someone was taking the time to help them.
I know I helped because I am truly grateful for all that I have in this life. While my life may not appear to be the greatest, I have so many riches I experience each day. I have real friends and people who do love me and support me. I have a roof over my head and hot food to eat. I have dreams and goals to achieve. I am limitless.
What I realized is that there is no difference between me and the people I saw living on the street and in the shelters. They may not realize that we all have the same potential. We all can have our dreams and the life we desire, but we have to want it desperately. We have to want it like we want our next breath. Only then will we be willing to endure whatever is necessary to achieve our goals. When you want something so bad then you can say “I will have it, NO MATTER WHAT.” Then you will have it.
It’s getting colder so now I must find socks. I know some people who would really appreciate a nice warm pair of socks.
Light and Love,
