Proud of myself. I walked past the pastry department without buying anything. I’ve been trying to tame my sweet tooth of late. After looking at the ingredients, it was much easier to pass on it. Sugar and cellulose.

Do you know that cellulose is really a plant by-product? Like wood dust and wood shavings? Cellulose is an indigestible carbohydrate known as dietary fiber. It’s been a popular food additive.

Here is an article by J.D. Heyes with a list of GMO foods to avoid published in NaturalNews.com on 6/1/12.

Buffet

Buffets are loaded with lots of food. Where to begin? Diners often feel they need to sample a little of everything. But this leads to heaping platefuls of food. And this adds to weight and health problems.

Ground rules for this go something like this:

Parents should have the final word about what foods are bought and used for meals and snacks. It’s the parents who need to make healthy choices about foods for themselves and their family.

Dr. Terry Wahls, a professor of medicine and clinical research, survived progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) through therapeutic use of a nutrient rich food plan, outlined here http://youtu.be/KLjgBLwH3Wc

After traditional medicine failed to help her, Dr. Wahls researched everything she could get her hands on about the disease, and was led to this diet plan. She attributes her remarkable progress to this way of eating and neuromuscular electrical stimulation, which uses an electrical current to promote muscle growth.

Dr. Wahls is now educating others about food as medicine and is studying whether this treatment could work for others with MS or Parkinson’s disease.

good diet. What do you think people will look like in eight years because of what they eat? Do you think people will take all this talk about poor eating habits in our country and make changes in their diets or will they continue on as before?

I will make a prediction. I feel people still are not realizing the power of food and therefore will not pay attention UNLESS they are affected by sickness and disease. Then it may be too late.
