I watched -
Dive! - About how much we waste food, crazy! 50% of what is produced in this country is thrown away. That is so difficult to hear, it's really depressing!!
Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead - A story of two men and their struggle with being overweight and unhealthy and "rebooting" by going on a juice fast for 60 days. Their results, not just in weight loss, were amazing and life changing.
Forks Over Knives - This is simply about how bad eating animal products is for us. Really interesting and eye opening.
Food, Inc. - The most well known documentary of those I watched. All about the food industry, what they've done with mass production, and how it's killing us.
Food Matters - This is about our Nation of chronically ill people, our massive number of pills and cures and our lack of health and nutrition, made worse by our over-indulgent and toxic ways.
So, do you see the theme her? All of the documentaries have been about food and health and have spurred some ideas. I need to stop being half-assed about my eating and health! I've embraced the running and exercise aspect fully, but the food has been my weakness.
Less of you
Way more of you!
My plan is simple, I won't change my eating too drastically before my half since I don't think that is a great idea. But for now, I'm going to cut out processed foods for the next few weeks and then after my run I think I am going to go on a 2 week juice fast and cut out most animal products after that. I am not sure how much I will tweak the kids diets, I think I'll just remove most white foods - bread, rice, potatoes, etc. for them, but they will still get a cookie in the evenings. I need to work the most on their breakfasts, I know that I don't do so well there - they tend to eat cold cereal or pop tarts. I'm not sure what I will do about it yet, but I'm going to do something to give them a more healthy start to the day.
Since it's been a few hours (5) and no puke, I'm going to give the treadmill a bit of love and do my first cross training workout of the new year, which I will post about tomorrow.
Question of the Day - What do you eat for breakfast? What is your favorite HEALTHY breakfast?
