So, I wrote my Food Story a couple weeks ago, right? Well, I've been thinking about it some more. Here are some thoughts...
Vern was at a Maximized Living chiropractic seminar last weekend. Maximized Living is going to be teaming up with Jordan Rubin, the author of The Maker's Diet, to do some nutritional stuff. So, Jordan Rubin was one of the speakers at the seminar. In his talk, he mentioned how his kid had only at two bites of junk food in his life... once, it was a Popsicle at a friend's birthday party, and the other time it was a bite of white rice.
And, part of me was thinking, "Wow. That's pretty cool that they treat their bodies so well." But another part of me was thinking, "Wait a minute... that sounds kind of annoying to be that obsessed with healthy eating."
Then, I read this good article on The Nourished Life blog, where she writes about keeping traditional diets in perspective, as well as this article on the Underground Wellness blog. And I'm starting to think that I am actually pretty okay with my food choices. You know, my 5% way of living (which sometimes turns into 10% which sometimes turns into 15%...), and I'm totally okay with it. Almost. I think. Maybe.
Anyway, the point is, there is more to life than how we eat. But yet, how we eat affects our quality of life (how we feel, how we look, how much energy we have)... so, it is important to find the balance. And, also, the most important thing... don't stress about ANY of it.
