Ever since we returned from Colorado, from a vacation of healthy food, hikes and horseback rides, I have felt a life-change coming on. For several months, I had been praying about my diet and improving my health and I have been reading things that would encourage me. I will be 50 next year, and at that mile-stone, I want to be in the best physical condition achievable and I have set some goals toward that plan. This beautiful salad (in my new pottery bowl) represents a more healthy way of eating for me and new way of looking at food and fuel for my body. It has taken a lot of energy to learn more about healthy eating (not diets) and to buy healthy food and to prepare healthy food. And I must say, I am enjoying this journey immensely. It is another new passion on my list. It is creating something new in me. Like the freshness of the salad, I am feeling green and crisp and downright sexy again. I have given up junk to gain the treasure of energy, health and good digestion. Food has never tasted so good and it takes much less than it use to to satisfy me. Saying goodbye to some things in our lives is sometimes the best gift we can give ourselves.
I would love to hear if you have a passion about healthy eating - or not........ or the things you must say goodbye to to enjoy a more healthy life - mentally, spiritually, and physically.
