What are Processed foods? What are Whole foods?

Confused by the two? Walk up to a tree, pluck off an apple, bite down and eat it. Whole food. The less you do to a food, the closer it is to a whole food and the more nutrients it has.

The supermarket provides a gamut of items and the majority of them are not even real foods. Froot Loops, Twinkies, Cheez whiz, Spahgetti-O’s. It’s amazing our bodies survive as long as they do. Then again, people are acquiring diseases 10, 20, 30 years earlier than their parents.                                                                                                                                                  .

Climbing Out of Your Comfort Zone

Comfort11By Christine Ardigo MSRD

Remember back in elementary school, nothing scared you? Climbing tall trees. Back flips on trampolines. Racing down a steep hill on a Big Wheels knowing full well it had no brakes. Ahh, good times. Okay, maybe that last one wasn’t such an intelligent move and it scared the hell out of me but guess, what? I still remember it today.

The initial excitement, hair flying up then wrapping around my face, wheels spinning faster and faster, then too fast. Excitement replaced by fear. Knowing you’ll wipe out before you reach the bottom, no way to stop. Heart smashing against your ribcage, eyes wide, mouth wider. Then when the high pitched screams convert to muted breath, you reach the level ground, with white knuckles and clenched teeth, but uninjured. Let’s do it again!                                                                                                                     . Read More
