Ok, I am off on a tangent and I just wanted you to know that there is a dirty dozen list of foods that have the most pesticides and as I look at the list it is everything I usually eat: Apples, Blueberries. Lettuce, Sweet Bell Peppers, Spinach, Cucmnbers, Potatoes. Celery, Grapes, Peaches, Strawberries and Nectarines that have been imported. Now I don't avoid those but if I can buy from a local farmer or organic, I will look at those first. We also know that we need complex carbohydrates like multigrain or whole grain. I always say get the most bang for your buck. Don't waste your calories or money on things that do not provide good nutrition. Candy bars and the like are not good nutrition and look at a bag of chips and tell me what nutrition you are getting. Since cancer, I have found that I want flavor, not necessarily hot but lots of flavor for the small amount I eat. I don't eat alot, I just graze but I want the best in what I am eating. My one big vice is popcorn though and that I will freely admit and I am just not quite to the hot air popped corn yet.
Take out saturated fat and replace with unsaturated like olice oil and get to a nutritionist. Someone that can actually help you through this maze and find where and what you can and do need and what is best. ACS (American Cancer Society-www.cancer.org) does have ACS Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention. So get up and move, and get out and meet and greet people. The benefits are amazing. Put that phone down, turn off the tv and reintroduce yourselves to your neighbors, take your dog for a walk( don't for get your baggy) sit in the park and listen to the sounds, go to the Diamond and hear the local band. Move and Enjoy life, don't miss another minute and yes, try to eat better, one bite at a time.
Making it a great day! S
