What is eating healthy? Medical doctors believe a diet low in fat and high in grains, fruit and vegetables is the key to low cholesterol and a healthy heart. But have you ever read the Cholesterol Myth?
I have one friend who only eats organic. Organic meat, organic dairy, organic everything. I have another who only eats raw. She hasn't had a bite of baked bread in five years. She is a great chef and makes some awesome raw meals. But I am not ready to go to any extremes.
I know that it is not what we put in our mouth but what we believe we are putting in our mouth that keeps us healthy. Yet when I keep putting more and more in my mouth I have to analyze it a bit more. One of the healthiest and happiest times in my life was when I was a practicing student of ACIM. Spiritual happiness took the place of self doubt. Eating a healthy diet in the right proportions was easy, because it wasn't something I gave a lot of effort to. My effort went into my spiritual happiness. My mind was more concerned with the right way of thinking. It was a discipline that gave me great comfort.
Because I know this, I commit to awareness. Mindful awareness. I am aware of what the label says. If I can't understand the ingredients, I don't want it. I'll eat organic as much as possible. I commit to love. I commit to meditation. Meditation daily.
Next up goals for a peaceful existence.
