Ever woken up feeling like dog poo wishing you hadn’t eaten what you ate? How you feel at this very moment in time depends on what you most recently consumed. If you broke the 8 hours ‘sleeping-fast’ with a Cinnamon bun and coffee with cumulus nimbus clouds of half and half and more immune-suppressing sugar, by 10 AM you’re almost certainly combating the sand-man. When you eat a super-sized cheeseburger, fries, fizzy-drinks and a sugary dessert, your afternoon energy equity is squandered supporting the besieged digestive process instead of providing your brain with fresh oxygen.
Multitudes of whole foods are generous at helping create the daily groovy feeling of lustrous physical, mental and spiritual health; others simply defy our design ultimately compromising our natural God-given condition; a health mind, soul and body. Foods such as sun-blest, locally produced fruits, vegetables, small amounts of animal protein and dairy products, seeds, nuts and whole grains, speak the nurturing language of human cells.
If you purchased a set of shiny new wheels, drove it out of the show room and constantly kept the proverbial peddle to the metal, sooner, than later you’ll throw a rod. Aging arrives swiftly enough without our assistance.
Dog gone-it’! Feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed is man’s outright birthright; you deserve to feel good, the way a Hoosier should! After all, in Genesis 1:29 we came with instructions. I don’t recall, however, the scripture, “Thou shalt consume foods from a machine. Go forth and genetically alter my gifts’.
Cut yourself some slack: your body is your buddy. Eat a whole foods diet; you’ll be looking for fun and feeling groovy.
