Making the Hard Food Choices
Choosing to eat healthy can be hard. That’s why we call it CHOOSING. I could choose to eat the junk food I used to love, or I could choose to eat something that will actually nourish my body.
For me, the two hardest things to let go of were Oreo cookies and Cokes. The Oreos went about a year ago… after tasting cookies made from higher quality ingredients and realizing what is IN the Oreos, they were easy to let go.
Cokes were harder. Much harder. Even though I knew how bad all the sugar was for me, and how it really was rotting my bones just like my mom told me as a kid, I still liked it.
Then I started to notice sometimes that my hands would shake a little bit when I typed on the computer. That was kind of a pain and a bit worrisome. I eventually put two and two together and realized that drinking Coke = shaky hands. Not good.
Now I drink tea. and lots more water. It’s not so bad, after all.
What’s the hardest thing for you to give up, even though you know you probably should?
Mt. Dew and cigarettes. Other than that I generally eat and drink pretty healthy with as much organic as I can afford for my family of 5. Both the pop and cancer sticks are old habits from before I cared about what I put into and onto my body. Someday……
Coke was a problem for me too. I loved my coke. About 4 weeks after I stopped drinking it, we went to a cafe & I ordered one with lunch automatically & it was vile. Just tastes like chemicals.
