WE ARE ABLE TO EAT NUTS AGAIN. MY ETHEL AND I DISCUSSED ALL THE CHANGES IN FOOD TRENDS...WHAT IS NOW HEALTH WAS A "NO, NO" WHEN WE WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL. NUTS WERE ON THE "NO, NO" LIST. AVOCADOS WERE TOO HIGH IN FAT, BELIEVED TO BE BAD FAT AT THAT TIME, SO YOU COULD ONLY HAVE THEM MAYBE ONCE A YEAR. EGGS...WELL THEY WERE THE ENEMY AND IF YOU WERE GOING TO BE HEALTHY YOU SHOULD STAY CLEAR OF THOSE CHOLESTEROL INDUCING GIFT OF NATURE.
Oh my!! Just like at one time many believed the world was flat, modern science can still get it wrong. Ethel and I both laughed at all the new updated information that is now 180 degrees from our teen days. Learning to ignore and change the voices in our heads on what is good and bad for us is really a mind game. I know when my family got detoured on our road to good eating habits....the years of multiple kids in sports and music lessons, while they were entering their teen junk food phase. As much as I tried, with drivers licence and personal money, came unhealthy eating habits. Returning to the healthy highways hasn't been as big of chore as I imagined, and new recipes have encouraged my "stick-to-it" resolve.
Bottom line - stay as close to how God made it and you can't go wrong.
My email delivered the announcement of World Pistachio Day heralding the health benefits of these wonderful nuts. I like almost all nuts and Pistachios are one of my favorites.
Since they are green, do you think they fit into my more GREEN this year? Now I would enjoy getting more GREEN backs also this year.
GREEN Health Tip of the week....eat more nuts!
