Good Evening lovely avocados,
While I’m eating fresh delicious healthy organic avocado’s with nice brown bread, I would like to write a post on the importance of healthy organic food.
I think about 2 years ago, I ate anything and I didn’t even realize that it would affect my skin. I’m from Europe, so my skin immediately reacts. But I kept eating those food, out of ignorance and it was quite cheap. I noticed that Good food with quality costs more. Anyway, my sister became very strict regarding eating ‘good'(non-gmo, organic) food, since her skin would be even more affected, her whole face would break out with lots of bumps, if she would eat processed food. The fact of the matter is, at times, I couldn’t even afford ‘organic’ food, which was low to zero percent on pesticides. GMO food is cheap. And I frankly didn’t care, because again I couldn’t afford the good stuff. I thought food is food.
My sister told me: I rather die, than eating something which makes me think I’m fulfilled, but it’s killing me in the wrong run. She was the only one saying it. The rest of the people around me, including my mom said: ‘Oh well, your sister is exaggerating. It isn’t so bad.’
Yes, making my own food takes time, it does. But *touch wood* thank god I’m still healthy and I rather invest in it now, then dealing with medical bills later. I only eat seafood and I’m vegan now. I do eat meat, I love meat, make no mistake, but only if I know it’s 100% grass fed. In Las Vegas, I was eating delicious, healthy meat. Here, I only eat shrimp and lots of vegetables.
I feel healthy and my skin is glowing. I took a risk and invested in good food. There is good food out there and as a family, I am able to buy healthy, organic food.
Yes, per month I am spending a lot on good food. If I would choose something cheap, I could most definitely buy the latest Samsung phone by the end of the month. I’ve got priorities. And of course my aim is to buy anything I like. But what I like, is that what I need? Healthy organic food, without pesticides tastes better and feels better. Most importantly, my skin looks and gets better.
Health is wealth. I’m very blessed with a baby sister who was crying for ‘good’ food and had her own principles. She was willing to die for it, to get quality food in her body. Even if it meant that we perhaps couldn’t afford living in LA. At the end of the day, health is wealth. Of course by the grace of God, we were able to eventually work it out. But we did take a risk. Even when there was no perspective.
We buy most of our groceries from Whole Foods and only buy food with the lowest pesticide load.
It all takes time, to research it, but I make time for it. Just like I make quality time with my sister, I take time to work on myself, I take time to pray, I take time to go to LA fitness. I value myself and my body. I now love baking. I love using my small oven. There are easy, quick and healthy recipes to make.
Yesterday I bought organic Japanese sweet potato. I’ll make something tomorrow 😉
