I guess I'm something of a health nut

or at least, my kids would say I am. But for good reason: See, I believe I'm going to live a good, loooooong time - and I want to enjoy that time fully. So I've got to take care of myself. Consequently, my husband and children are forced to be healthy as well!
Yes, I grind my own wheat and flake my own oats. Easy and way healthy! Years ago I visited a naturopath who taught me to eat at least one meal of "live" food every day. Salads are a great go-to-meal if you prepare a whole bunch at once and package them in baggies, ready to dump on the plate. My husband and I have found that a half a lemon squeezed on with some good salt & pepper - that's dressing enough. Water. Water, water, water! And if you haven't yet picked up "Water & Salt, The Essence of Life" - it's a good read. I'm also a juicer. That picture, middle-right shows our counter on a typical morning. The hubby and kids know to check the counter and drink up. Lined up in order are: sole, lemon water, fresh juice. And I'm a walker. I used to be a runner, but found it dangerous to my health when I slipped on ice, hit my head and was medivac flighted for a brain bleed. Ick. So I walk now, and am trying to work back up to running. But that fresh air! wow. Last picture - that is sole. You can read all about it here. I'm a believer.

Any other health nuts out there?

  1. I wish I was a health nut but alas I am not even close :-(

  2. Way to go! I definitely strive to be healthy, but go through lapses when I get very busy. I'm working on it. How scary that you had to be medivac-flighted while running. People underestimate the positive benefits of just plain old walking.

  3. I admire what you are doing very much. I think I am too lazy to be a health nut myself. :)

  4. I don't know that I'm a health nut. However, I have learned that it is better to buy food for value per nutrients rather than per volume. It may cost more up front, but you save in the long run.

  5. i'm trying to get there - not there yet and have a long way to go. but... i've been walking more and getting more exercise. i spend so much of my time taking care of ron's needs that i've really neglected my own. working on changing that.

    we're moving over the course of the next couple of weeks and then i'll be dedicating more of my time to getting healthy.
