Last night, please do not laugh, but I found myself watching Southern Charm. I needed some really good trashy TV to be mindless and it worked.
The mother was bribing her child with money. She said, ” I will give you $10 if you do not go outside right now.”
She then sais, ” Do you know what $10 can buy you?”
She said, ” It can buy you 2 happy meals.”
I sat there and thought about this (maybe not so mindless for me after all). What are we teaching our young? I was not concerned about the money aspect as I have said to my kiddos, ” Hey momma will pay you $1 for a foot massage”.
I was concerned with the FACT that we are teaching our little ones about happy meals.
I have asked my son many times to go and fight with me about school lunch and what they feed the majority of his school, who does not get packed lunches. This will be happening as I am FED UP.
But, then is the other issue – PROCESSED food that is clearly processed like big chains pretending to make things healthy (apple sticks and fresh fruit sides with your soy based burger and soy based fries).
And the markets with cereal boxes promising heart health loaded with SOY. And then we wonder why we have a rise in health issues and ADD and our kids cannot think or we have hormonal issues and digestive distress galore or all if the autoimmunes on the rise…
Yes, I woke up fired up. I woke up fired up because I want to live in a different world and it will take all of us fighting to educate people about real food. I want my KIDS to live in a world of change.
I am taking another little break in my series on organization to talk about something that is on everyone’s tongue right now and that is health care reform. The health care plan has found everyone with an opinion and they are strong opinions. It is a subject that has religion, money and politics all involved not to mention our basic quality of life.
If you ask a group of people the question, “Who understands the new health care program?” not too many fully understand it. There is no question that there is a crisis in our country. We are a nation with a BUNCH of sick people and some of them with no way to pay to get better. In addition to that, tons of money is being spent on treatments that could be prevented.
We have a cockeyed lifestyle.
Here it is: the truth is that most of us are born healthy. We live our life then all of a sudden we notice we can’t do the things we used to do. We can’t move as well and our stomachs are all swollen up. We are having digestive problems and migraines and we are doing all we can to get through the day, fall asleep (if we can sleep) and then get up and start all over again.
You know those ads on TV? Where it says, “Oh by the way, if you take these pills you are going to have brain hemorrhages, diarrhea, seizures and maybe death,” well there is a reason they are required to tell you that because it happens.
Then who pays for all this stuff that is making us so sick? Health Insurance, taxes bottom line it all comes back to US! The saddest thing is when nobody pays for it and a person then dies. That happens. Everyone talks like there is no possible solution to this problem.
There is a solution to the health care problem! Are you ready?
Stand up and do not buy the JUNK. Bottom line.
What does it take to be healthy? I know! We need to quit blaming the government, the doctors, our parents, the schools and the grocery store and the farmer. We have to take control and responsibility for our own health.
This is so important. We need to step up to the plate.
We must learn what makes us healthy – self-actualization, learning, esteem, love, safety and physiological needs.
It won’t be easy at first. It will get easier as we go though.
- We HAVE to start eating for nourishment instead of entertainment.
- We have to start moving our bodies.
- We have to de-stress our lives.
- We have to spend more time on spiritual pursuits.
- AND we have to take care of each other.
There are certain things in life that are true. We do need insurance in case of emergency. We do need to face the facts that there are things we are feeding to our bodies that are not nourishing us and realize that they are poisoning us. If we are going to be healthy, we have to get up and move our bodies. Those are THE facts!
We live the life we were raised to live. We buy our groceries in boxes, cans and bags. We grew up eating these foods (our parents DID NOT), and as time has passed and we get busier with our crazy busy lives, we have even gradually evolved to more processed foods. EAT WHOLE FOODS!
I grew up thinking milk was healthy. I had no clue that milk has measurable amounts of herbicides, pesticides, huge amounts of antibiotics, blood, pus feces, bacteria AND viruses. There are a lot of people who still believe that it is healthy because they are still forcing our children to drink it at school. In fact there are some schools that don’t allow their students to have water if they don’t drink their poison laden milk first! MAKE YOUR CHILDREN’S LUNCH!
I read this: “People are fed by the food industry, who pay no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.” (Wendell Barry)
