Eat your veggies!
Now is the time to eat all the healthy greens and fresh produce that you can. Canned and frozen vegetables may be okay when fresh isn’t available but, fresh peas, squash, corn, and beans are simply the best! Support your local farmer’s markets, local growers, and co-ops. Encourage organic and no-pesticide growers! Fresh is best!
A new Harvard study performed over 20 years with 110,000 participants on red meat consumption, showed strong evidence for drastically reducing or eliminating red meat from one’s diet. The report did not make the major network news that I watched last night nor did I see it in the major newspaper that I read today.
As a longtime vegetarian, I can tell you that I have seen and experienced so many benefits to keeping on a vegetarian diet. My energy level improved, as did my digestion, the absorption of my meds, as well as my overall health. I am passionate about being vegetarian, not fanatical.
Some people reading this with an open mind may want to try this and slowly implement more veggies and less or even no meat into their lives. Some will be less likely to consider a dietary change at all. All I can tell you is that for 20+ years, vegetarianism has treated me well.
If you decide to try Vegetarianism, you should consult your doctor(s).
