From the other side of the fence…

February 24, 2009

other side of fence…comes voices from the allopathic and traditional western medicine arena. I must say, if studied.. a good measure of integral thinking. I think there is more to the recipe…but this is a good start! I’m rootin for ya!

I found this article… I love the concept of the simple principles of “don’t retire,” “move around,” “get your sleep,” “consume whole foods, not supplements,” click the link to read more. Vibrant health doesn’t need to be difficult!

The “King D Krunch”

February 24, 2009

Dr. Doug Graham said we are addicted to crunch!

Loren Lochman says we are addicted to the feeling of being full!

Well I am a Krunchaholic that loves bein full!

What do I do, when the Krunch monster takes over the brain? …and all nutritional reason goes out the mental window? I am on the prowl for Krunch!

If I keep everything dangerous outta the house, I usually will make do with the pre-planned foods. If I am on the loose… the rules can change bigtime! I’ll compromise, and pay for it with my body… and sometimes my pain level… just to satisfy the crunch attack.  Not the best choice!

The overeating of good things.  I’ll be up late and over eat nuts, and seeds looking for crunch, knowing that it is better if they are soaked… I still go for the dried ones for the crunch’n’chew factor.

Produce just doesn’t have the same ‘chew’.

I am by no means a chef… making food is a facinating chore to me…  I am Chef Boy’R’Duh in the kitchen. I get in there and go to thrashin around, tryin to make some food. Oh I eat all right, but when I get done it looks like the cooking channel blew up!  Half the ingredients for the recipe have been picked through or eaten completely, my food presentation and arrangement skills leave a lot to be desired…  ever dish I own is dirty… FORGET IT!!?!? Just eat the flippin ingredients!
