Don’t eat sugar. Lower your calories. Have an energy bar. Avoid carbs. Jump off the roof!
The diet industry can make us all really nuts if we pay attention too long. And unfortunately, most of us don’t get any decent information from our doctors. But, here at Little House we believe that the first priority is not what you EXCLUDE, but what you INCLUDE. To be healthy, your body must have REAL FOOD, which means something that will ROT unless it’s preserved by canning, freezing, etc. We cannot eat mini-pretzels and diet coke for every meal, pop a vitamin and think that we’re going to be remotely healthy. So here’s the basics:
Organic garbage is still garbage. If you eat organic boxed macaroni and cheese for every meal, your health will deteriorate just as quickly as the person eating the conventional version. It’s not food. Organic or not.
Conventional good stuff is still good stuff. The most important thing is to eat something REAL. The country isn’t in a health crisis because our we eat too much produce with pesticides. If only! It’s in a crisis because we don’t eat enough produce of any kind. So first things first, people, get up to your gizzard in some plant foods. A conventional pesticide-laden peach is, like, a bazillion times better for you than organic goldfish crackers.
Skinny doesn’t equal healthy. We can get thin on protein supplements, shakes, and meal bars, but we are not healthy. We’ll look great, but we won’t fight off disease and cancer that way.
