New Year's resolutions are hard to keep and to be honest, I rarely stick with
one of them long enough for it to become a habit or life style change.
But every year I try again, because to stop trying is to stop growing.
I am coming to grips with the very real fact that if I don't start taking better care
of my health and my body, it's not going to take care of me.
Getting older can be such a pain ~ literally.
So I planned out a two-week menu of healthy meals and headed to the grocery store. As I was putting the food away, I realized how beautiful the textures and colors are and couldn't help but snap a few pictures.
My body will probably go into shock eating all these beautiful fruits and vegetables, but eventually it will repay my efforts with more energy.
We take our health for granted until we don't have it anymore. Once again I'm trying to turn over a new leaf with lots of leafy vegetables, fruit, water, and exercise. So up on the menu for lunch today is a wonderful kale salad with pomegranate seeds, avocado, and hard-boiled eggs.
Even my chickens get fed fresh kale and cabbage every week.
It's pitiful that I feed them healthier than I feed myself.
Is anyone else trying to improve their eating habits this year?
I just wish it wasn't so expensive to eat healthy.
