What's your thing?
I'm a retired person with a bit more time up my sleeve these days. My mantra is live as healthy as possible and to look after my partner and I, so we can live and enjoy life to the fullest. Neither of us take any medication (pharmaceutical) and we grow our own veggies, eat seasonally and only buy what we can't produce. I'm aware that we need extra goodies to complement our diet. What to choose? We have so much information at our fingertips and choice can sometimes be difficult but this is what I've come up with to help us along the way.
We start every morning with a splash of ACV in water, take a supplement - Vital all in One, contains vitamins, minerals, greens,protein, herbs, mushrooms, digestive enzymes etc 10g powder in 300mls water. Drink water, green tea. Upped our fruit and veg. Lowered our intake of meat and only eat it if its grass fed and organic. Introduced legumes, chick peas, beans etc. Increased seed and nut intake, especially walnuts(my fav) I make golden paste (tumeric/pepper/oil/water. Hardly eat bread and use gluten free products where possible. Varied our grain intake, quinoa, rice, oats, polenta. Cut back on alcohol. Introduced different herbs to our diet. I have been going through menopause for 10 yrs now and it's not looking like leaving me anytime soon. I do take a herbal tablet with increased amounts of Ashwaganda and Rhodiola. I believe we're active, try to walk 5km a day, garden, maintain our property etc. So I believe we are on our way to a healthier us. We could both lose a bit of weight but we are happy with our lot in life.
What is it you believe important? What's your thing? Happy to learn what others do.
