I have decided to make a life change. I want to lose weight, I want to get healthy! I read a book that really changed the way I viewed food (Skinny Bitch is the book) it states some truths, and some I'm not so sure about-but the point is it really made me think differently. It's true you are what you eat.
The point of the book is to help women lose weight and also become vegan- it basically "leaks" dirt little secrets-however it's not gonna stop me from eating meat or dairy-sorry I'm sure it's healthy and great, but it's just not for me. But I have decided to make some changes.
I really do not like all the hormones and pesticides that are put in/on the things that we put into our bodies-I really think it totally and completely effects our body chemistry and possibly in a negative way.
So Josh and I have made a somewhat mutual decision(mostly me) to eat as organically as possible. It is VERY expensive to buy organic meat, but I at least want to try or buy locally and not some big chain. Having grown up around farms and personally knowing many farmers my whole life-I feel that it is very important to support our local economy and support those who depend on their farms for their livelihood. We have already started scouting out places in Indiana(where we are moving to next week) such as farmer's markets, natural food stores etc..
We went grocery shopping last night and we couldnt afford the organic eggs-so we got the cage free ones they are only about 60 cents more than the regular eggs we buy and they honestly taste better. I know that no one regulates "natural" or "cage free" like the gov't does "organic" but I felt like it was a better choice-plus the "organic" eggs were almost $5. We bought a lot of fruit and veggies that were organic they were no more than the canned ones and we got more for our money!
I just wanted to share my first step to a healthier hopefully skinnier me.
I think I can, I think I can.
