Today I had the privileged, of meeting a nice woman wanting to get back physical shape. I explained to her what I do and how I can help her to reach her physical fitness goals. While explaining I told her this is no easy thing to do. This takes hard work, discipline, of course dedication. I also asked her what is her reason wanting to get back on track? Her answer was priceless. (Her Children). This made me indeed smile, and remember this was one of the reasons I started doing this Health Coaching.
Everyone is busy with a million things to do now a-days. However, taking the time to prepared a home cooked meal can benefit us nutritionally as well as mentally. Coming home from work, and stopping to get fast food is so easy and convenient. We just drive up to a restaurant, (not even park the car, but drive through) order our food talking into a speaker, then drive to the next window to get our meal or the evening. Here is a few photos to get a clear understanding on what we actually do.
While sitting in a car, we order our food, we pay, and it’s brought to our car, and then we drive home, to then feed our families. Fast Food is one of the number one causes of death in the US. I say this because 90 percent of our health issues come from what we eat. Not that is not okay to eat out once and a while. At least park and get out of the car, and go inside.
P.S. McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s etc, is not considered food.
When you make the time to prepare a meal for your family several things take place.
- We spend time with your children preparing the meal.
- It becomes a teachable moment for us as well as them.
- This encourages discipline, and shows your child (children) the responsibilities of caring for a family and all that it takes.
- This also helps you to appreciate the work you put into preparing the meal.
Since this blog is named Plant Based Power, I do promote the Plant Based Lifestyle as a means to combat diseases like diabetes, and other cardiovascular health issues. We promote when shopping starting in the produce section, as you see the multiple colors of fruits and vegetables. We recommend spending most of your store experience there.
Why are we doing all this anyway? We are doing this to better our health and preserve our future, by teaching our kids to do the same.
Until next time, take care of yourselves, and each other.
