There are so many products on the market that promise to supply our bodies with all of the nutrients that our bodies need to do things like lose weight, and reverse diseases that it’s enough to make your head spin. You see them on your TV screen, listen about them on the radio, find them in your email box and see them on the sidebars of websites. Throughout my life I have even tried a few and discovered each time that the promises that were made never pan out to being the complete truth.
You will never see an advertisement on my blog that endorses anything other than a product that I have proven to be a benefit to the cause of a healthier human being. If I did have a side banner of this nature it would be an endorsement to shop at your local farmers market, or to find a farm itself that grows fresh, organic produce. Or cage free chicken, or eggs. Milk that is raw and from the source of cows living a happy cow life. I would endorse the local butchers across the country that produce meats that from animals that are not part of the factory farming process. I would endorse the gardens on your own property where you grow your favorite vegetables and herbs that are filled with the love of you and your families tending to your own crops. These are, and have always been the true sources of healthy nutrition for many thousands of years. Even before then hunter gatherers ate directly from the earth and the wild animals in there regions of the planet.
Science has come a long way and has created some pretty amazing things in just our lifetimes alone, but keep in mind that any product is the result of the pursuit of profits and although there are a few that actually have some nutritional benefits they certainly cannot ever outweigh the benefits of eating from the source. This also includes GMO’s (Genetically Manufactured Organisms) which are seeds that have been altered to grow plants a specific way that will produce a products that is resistant to many diseases and can grow beautiful fruits and vegetables. The problems is that they are producing the same produce that nature and time itself spent millions of years developing. There is a balance in nature and when you disrupt that balance it effects many other area’s of nature itself. Let science produce our devices we use to communicate and systems that keep us warm in the winter, but let’s show them that we prefer our food sources direct from nature, unaltered and filled with all of the nutrients that our bodies are meant to take in. Your body and mind will work in balance with these food sources that are pure and natural in their creation and you will feel and know the difference throughout your life.
Real food is digested in it’s natural form as you need the whole apple, not just the juice or the vitamin A what was extracted from it. You want more fiber in your diet then eat those fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber and your trips to the bathroom will be a lot more pleasant. Do you really want to see all of the benefits that are promised in the advertising campaigns of these crazy products, then simply EAT REAL FOOD.
So based on my numbers I see this morning I know that it is high time that I get back into action and begin the workout process once again. It has been 3 long days of healing and I am feeling energetic and ready to start getting my body into motion while being mindful to not overdo it. The high morning glucose is not the result of not working out alone, it is also the result of eating some high carb foods yesterday. Namely, corn bread with a bowl of soup and a grilled cheese sandwich and some pretzels. Yea, I was a dumb ass yesterday. 😦
