Thursday Thoughts: Give me the simple life
Give me the simple life.
Many times, we find that people are very overwhelmed when it comes to eating healthy. Doing a massive overhaul of your pantry and your personal care products seems impossible, not to mention expensive. I’ve been thinking of ways to encourage people who feel bogged down in the process, and I can’t help but think of my hero, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Whenever I’m tempted to think I need something extra complicated, I think “Laura Ingalls survived without it; so can I.”
Eating and living well is all about simplicity.
If you focus on your meats, proteins, and healthy fats, you’ll find a rhythm. Leave out processed, boxed foods and ingredients you don’t recognize. Make food at home. Learn to love mixing spices and creating simple, delicious meals. You don’t need fancy. You need quality.
In your personal care products, keep it simple. Do you really need that many moisturizers? Pick a good quality and have one of each. No need for excess stuff which clutters your cabinets, your pores and your immune system.
Don’t overcomplicate healthy living. Eat eggs, bacon, meat, butter, vegetables, etc and be free.
While you’re at it, clean out your closet and give away some old clothes. Let this be the year you simplify. You don’t need a magic pill, you need good foods and supplements your body specifically needs according to your nutritionist -Janine! :)
Also, limit your television watching. Sleep for a least 8 hours. Go outside. Laugh.
It’s the little things.
Today, choose simplicity. There is freedom there.
