Call To Action Journey towards Superior Nutrition..
Well I’m back…. Been away for almost a month..
but I returned…… ready to start that journey
towards Superior Nutrition.
So,,,, let’s do it…. Or as Nike would say:
JUST DO IT!!!
Where have we been????
Well Diane and I have been on a cruise and it’s
been difficult getting back on the horse after a
cruise and with all the holidays….
But we’re ready to go now….
So…Right now you are probably wanting to
start your journey too!
Most of today’s blog is from Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s
web site or book EAT TO LIVE….
Beginning to eat healthy is like building
muscles or learning a new skill
– if you make the commitment and practice
1. You WILL get stronger
2. You WILL see results
3. It WILL become easier and more enjoyable.
So….here we go…. (From Dr. Fuhrman)
- If you have already added a large
salad every day, now add a serving
of cooked green vegetables; next
replace the sugary foods in your diet
with fresh fruits.
- If you’ve switched your breakfast from
coffee and doughnuts to steel cut oats
and berries, now aim to get all of the
G-BOMBS (we’ll talk about these later)
into your diet every day.
- If you have tackled eating healthfully at
home and around pushy family members,
now practice ordering at a restaurant. Ask
for your food exactly how you want it; no salt
or oil, and add extra salad or steamed vegetables.
- If you have begun to change your diet but don’t
yet have an understanding of the science,
read Eat for Health. Knowledge, not willpower
will help you to make the best food and lifestyle
- Try a new vegetable or fruit that you’ve
never tasted. There is a huge variety of different
flavors to experiment with in the world of plant
foods: broccoli rabe, mustard greens, kohlrabi,
jicama, pomegranates, persimmons, apricots
and mangos, just to name a few. Micronutrient
variety is vital to excellent health.
- Get in touch with true hunger. Learn the
difference between toxic hunger and true
hunger, and eat according to your body’s
natural hunger and satiety signals.
These are all great tips to get us on the road to
In the meantime….. it’s the start of a new
year and we all like to set some goals.
What are your goals…. To eat better, to lose weight,
to get into better shape….physically, mentally,
emotionally, spiritually and financially.
You’ll be glad you did.
