You Are What You Eat!

It's true and I've finally accepted it. The only way to look and feel better is to fight the cravings and actually eat better. So I turned to Dr. Ian K. Smith's book titled EAT for a little help.  Dr. Smith's book, published in 2011, is packed full of goodies. He tackles nutrition head on and breaks it down in an easy to swallow format.  The book talks in detail about what's in the food our bodies need and has a great section on buying organically grown produce. I couldn't help but notice that this wonderful food has always been a part of God's plan, but maybe I was moving too fast to take advantage of it.

Dr. Smith made me pause to think about what I've actually been consuming.  Then I began to learn what I should eat. So instead of buying tons of fitness gadgets and weight loss shakes, I've started buying more vegetables, whole grains and leaner meats. (I love poultry and fish so this is exciting!) EAT, reminded me that I don't have to stay chained to my bad habits. I can take a progressive step for myself and for my family. I'm learning to make good deciscions whether eating out, in, or just for enjoyment. I encourage you to read this excellent book and say yes to health when you eat!
