Every morning my husband likes to read the news to me – sometimes whether I want to hear it or not! The only reason I say ‘not’ is because I find too much news not good for my health. A lot of what is being reported by the media right now from outward appearances anyhow, seems very doom and gloom. I have learned along the way that if I ingest too much of this kind of information, my mind has a tendency to glom onto it in ways that spiral me downward, impacting my mood. Since I believe our immune system is influenced by the thoughts we think, I find it important to monitor what I let in. And after all, at 6:00 in the morning, it is already far too early and dark out to tamper with this fine balance!
For those of you who don't know me very well, I like to experiment with my food. The odds are usually in my favour; however, depending on who is my guinea pig they may or may not agree with me! This morning I had a brain wave.
Sometimes it gets really confusing to know what to eat. There are so many trends including new and improved vitamins and supplements, anti-aging techniques, superfoods, etc. that threaten/I mean entice us into better eating habits and health. I only have to go through my email daily to feel totally overwhelmed and beleaguered by all the information that is being shared. Where do you start? This makes no sense to me and I am a nutritionist!
