It is almost end of July and I have still recipes that I need to publish. This month went too fast for us. In the beginning of the month, I was looking for plane tickets for our annual travel to Turkey and that was a bit of a challenge. The travel agent I worked with was decided to go on a vacation without announcing on the website. Really! That was inconvenient for people like me who try to figure out what the heck was going on. Once I found out what was happening, I knew finding tickets was going to be a test for me to see how I could manage stress. Luckily, I found and purchased the tickets. I was surprised by prices being so high this year. Shocking, right!
We also continued with our Paleo diet and starting to get good results. Our bodies were starting to get better at using the food as fuel resource. We were feeling better with ourselves but I'll admit, here and there I was getting mood swings and sugar cravings. I know it will go away as sugar addiction is the hardest to get rid of. It also helped me to cook different dishes that I was getting into a cycle where I was preparing almost the same style dinner every night.
I am spreading the words to people around me, because I want them to experience what I am experiencing. Feeling energetic and not having any side effects from the food we consume worth everything. Yes, this type of eating requires planning and cooking. What strikes me most is when I tell people that I wake up early to prepare breakfast, they look at me like I am doing something wrong or crazy. Cooking and preparing food is part of life outside of U.S. but here people see that as wasted time. I pity for those people. Life is too short to waste on meaningless things. To me, I am fine with spending an hour or so a day to prepare my food so I can control what I eat. I don't want big corporations to force upon me their cheap and innutritious empty food boxes. If people could see this, majority of food related problems would diminish. I am hopeful though, one day this will end. Until then, I will control my own destiny.
