I have been trying SO HARD to eat healthy. The healthier I eat, the better I feel, both physically and mentally. It makes sense. Your body is like a car. If you put bad gas in your car, your car runs bad. If you put good gas in your car, your car runs well. Same with food and the body. If you eat greasy burgers and fries, you're going to feel sluggish and weighed down. If you eat lots of veggies and fruits and lean proteins, you feel great! At least I do. The better I eat, the more energy I have, the clearer I think... and best of all, my clothes fit better! Gotta love that part!
On a side note, I'm also obsessed with Yoga. The better I eat, the better my Yoga practice is. That makes me happy.
But then there is that looming question... "to eat organic, or not to eat organic?" Is it really worth the extra money? Is it safer than traditionally grown food? Is it less safe? I came upon this interesting article from the Mayo Clinic I thought I'd share. I consider the Mayo Clinic to be a pretty good source of reliable infomation.
In my quest to find out whether organic food is worth the money, I have also learned about "The Dirty Dozen." Experts say that even if you don't totally go all organic, there are still 12 foods that you should always buy organic. Read more about the Dirty Dozen here.
To prove to my mother that I have been eating healthy, I texted her this picture of the inside of my refrigerator... a carton of Almond Milk, a bottle of water, 2% shredded cheddar cheese, fresh watermelon, a bunch of Greek yogurt, a bag of spinach laying on a bag of field greens, strawberries, and reduced fat bleu cheese. Not bad, considering I was once a kid that wouldn't eat her fruits or vegetables!
Here's to good health!!!
