After visiting with my blog friend Trent, and seeing his weekly smile challenge, I thought about what has made me smile every day for the last ten days.
This colorful bouquet of flowers:
This pink carnation broke off (but it was not missed at all – the bunch was pretty full)
The carnation sure made for a fun photo shoot after I dissected it (because isn’t this what adults sometimes do – play with flowers?)
I have also been wanting to share a few snippets from The Dirt Cure (2016) book (here) by Dr. Maya.
This is a must read book.
Today I have three little pages to share – and I plan to do a second post later.
For now – my three takeaways are as follows:
Look at the the “how” the “why” and the “who” when you think about the food item – how and why it was processed or harvested – and how the “who” will benefit or not benefit.
Chocolate (cocoa) is awesome for us – oh yeah – but if you are having your cocoa with sugar (and chemicals) you are NOT helping your organs or your metabolism. Just sayin….
Can we please stop demonizing RED MEAT. Some of “those powers that be” made this type of meat into the bad guy and while some red meat – like the slime – is yucky – other red meat is bueno – like grass-fed red meat is packed with vitamins, minerals, much-needed fats, and so much more. And you might benefit from quality red meat especially if you have Type-O blood; however, we have been brainwashed. Side note – I might not speak up about this topic every time I see someone slam red meat as if abstaining is this good health choice – and I definitely will not speak up if this is your religious belief – but friends, please just see if you were brainwashed (like many of us were) – because like me, your body might THRIVE from a little life-giving, grass-fed beef.
