The Paleo Mom’s recent post “Reshape Your Thoughts,” hit me just right. It’s time to call everyone to re-think their food.
This post went through the list of arguments non-Paleo folks bring up quite often & rocked it out of the park! It’s so simple, but it makes us sound crazy. Of course better food costs more! Of course cooking takes more time!
Here’s what they won’t think about: Bad, non-food food costs less. Choosing TV and internet over sleeping and exercise damages your body. Feeding yourself and your family requires time. But how can anybody disagree that it’s worth it?
Basically, restructuring your schedule to allow yourself the time it takes to truly care for your body pays huge returns. Try not to think of a home cooked meal of whole foods, a walk with your partner, and sleep as indulgences you just can’t fit in the schedule. Give up TV time (or if you are me, internet time!), draw the line with an overly demanding work schedule, and cut back on outside activities that leave you depleted. All these small changes in time management will add up to a much happier, healthier you. – Angie Alt
It’s hard to choose to live well. It’s really, really hard for JHubbs & I to go to bed at 8pm and to purchase, prepare, and cook all of our food. But when you compare the two ways of living, is there really a choice?
