Chemical foods, fake foods, chemistry lab foods, dangerous foods! They are everywhere, and sadly nowhere more prevalent than in your local big-box or super chain grocery store.
Shop the perimeter of the grocery store, especially if you shop in a conventional grocery store. The middle isles are filled with pretty packages, marketing slogans, celebrity faces, current buzz words BUT the ingredients are neurotoxic, endocrine disrupting, obesity generating, and cancer producing! Sadder than that is the fact that people eat these foods and don’t make the connection that it is the very food that they are spending their hard-earned money on that is contributing to their anxiety, inability to focus, pain in their bodies, brain fog, illness, disabilities and need for medication that they are spending more of their money (or our money if they are on government assistance). Educate yourself. Make wiser decisions this year than last year. Care about this.
If you go into a store in Europe or the UK you will find the same exact food (for instance a snickers, Doritos,…) without those chemicals bc their government restricts these ingredients known to be harmful! America not only tolerates this but supports it. I’m confused! And mad! I hate cancer (I’ve had it twice) so when people have a cavalier attitude about nutrition, exercise or lifestyle change that I teach, I wonder how long it will be until they are forced to care – by some sad disease that reeks havoc on their body, their finances, and their loved ones. Sure, we can’t prevent everything, but does that mean we should prevent nothing. Care!
Do not be duped (yes, duped) by Pepsi’s crazy colorful, non-GMO drinks. These are FULL excessive grams of sugar, carbs and sodium. Lies all lies. Marketing geniuses know how little the American public knows about its food and food sources. This product will spike your blood sugar drastically and provide very little by way of fiber or protein, and is packed with 320 liquid calories.
Any day we wish, we can discipline ourselves to change it all! Why not today? As we begin a new year with new plans and new goals, it serves us well to make the necessary changes that change our lives for the better. As you prepare your resolutions for 2018, let me know if you need a partner for the change you desire.
A unique and worthwhile life is within reach if you start the process of personal change.
To your success,
