Why do so many people go on about ‘health food’ and healthy food in your diet? It seems that it is a new fad or way trend today. Why can’t we just do what we want to how we want and when we want? Why is our body not adaptable or able to handle the junk food that we constantly shove down our throats? It’s not fair that if I eat chocolate cake and chips all day that my body wants to ‘pack on the pounds’,… after all I hate exercise.
If this is your thinking, then as you could imagine, you may want to change your thinking. Believe it or not – it is not the foods fault, rather, it probably has something to do with your decision to buy it in the first place. Losing weight and living a healthy life is not an overnight cure. It is a way of life.
So why do I hate the saying “healthy food, healthy heart”? Well it is because so many around us just do not get the picture. They are slowing dying right before our eyes and there is nothing that we can do about it. Only they can save themselves. If this is you, then save yourself. Change the saying to “Get out and live, my decision, my life”. When you make this realization, healthy food is not a dirty word, but rather just a way of life.
So, we can now all say…I Love to eat my greens
Green food is amazing. Some of it tastes like dirt, but most of it tastes sweet. The fact that green vegetables are ‘health food’, and deliver essential elements and minerals is really irrelevant when you love chewing on these natural foods. Try raw string beans or snow peas as a snack during the day. Or what about carrots, celery, or even broccoli stems. Yes – raw foods are a great snack, and totally healthy, fun and relatively cheap. Warning – make sure they are fresh – as there is nothing worse than trying these foods after they are old. Make sure they are crisp and ‘snap’ when bent.
So eat some fresh raw veggies today, and you won’t have to worry about the misrepresented saying “Healthy Food, Healthy Heart”.
