The foods in each of those colored quadrants prompt me to think of my favorites: apples and carrots, quinoa, pasta, and rice; eggs and cheese; and squash, broccoli, and tomatoes. Of course the chocolate and cookie addiction helps to keep me pudgy!
If you read this and find yourself reflecting on your own foods journey, please join in this discussion of the meatless diet. Well, I still eat chicken on occasion, but it's no more safe than the others.
The more I read about the foods fed to cattle and hogs, the more I find myself shunning the meat. The antibiotics, the growth hormones, the GMOs (genetically modified organisms) that are far from safe for human consumption won't be missed by my compromised immune system. In fact, I'm certain the break from these meats will reap positive results. I'll revisit this topic later in the year. In the meantime, please leave comments.
Happy New Year!
