Actually, my hubby's low blood sugar started it, but many years before that, my own dad was one of the founding fathers. It's like most things, you start to read and study, and pretty soon, you are looking at labels, freshness, un- processed, etc.
This morning at the grocery store I was in the produce department and a size 1, maximum 2, little housewife was filling her cart with plastic bags of all things green. I asked her about kale, since I don't love kale... she said the place she uses kale is in homemade soups. So far so good. I can do that too.
Grocery shopping is an art form. I MADE myself stay in the fruits and veggies area for a long time, and I LIKED it! I filled MY cart with plastic bags too!
I have spent a lot of time online, what great resources there are. I am becoming aware of not only fat and sugar, which I've looked at for a long time, but carbs. The way carbs process into sugar in our bodies is a concept I'd never thought much about.
I have to throw this one in too, for all of you who have said you don't like cooked spinach. I am trying to pinch my face to remove the proud look when I say this... I reallly love steamed spinach! :)
I haven't gotten so righteous that I want a green smoothie yet, Debbie, but who knows??
I'm such a big believer in God desiring 'the whole man', spiritual, physical, and emotional. I may be a late bloomer, but I've joined the club.
What shall we call ourselves?
The green girls...
The food group fruit loops...
...or maybe even
The fresh females...
I think that does it for today!
