Audrey Hepburn wore flat shoes and low heels because she loved to walk and did not want her shoes to inhibit her, according to her son. She both defined fashion and defied trends. Here is a quote from an actress who used her star power to help children as a UNICEF Ambassador.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
You can see that Audrey Hepburn’s attitude about life may be the reason she survived the Nazi occupation of Holland, when she almost starved to death before the British soldiers liberated the Dutch, and went on to become a great Hollywood star, untouched by scandal or disrepute.
Eating for health starts with an attitude, a decision in your mind to defy “fashion” and disagree with the fast-food, crap-food, dead-food culture that is marketed and sold to us disguised as real food. The food industry is not your friend, the tobacco companies are not your friend, pharmaceutical companies are not your friends, any more than the drug cartels are your friends. They have one thing in common-they will sell you anything they can get away with for their own profit and gain. They don’t care about you, your children, your health or even your life, as long as they make money for their stock holders.
Don’t lie to yourself about their motives. They sell addiction, and misery, wrapped in a fleeting pleasure. Tobacco, refined sugar, and pesticides have all been proven and cause and feed cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes- and will probably be shown to cause Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia.
Like Nazi occupation, this false-food permeates our land and makes prisoners of those who fall prey. You can be free of it-the decision is yours. Yes, it will may stretch your food budget to eat organic and it can be very difficult to give up sweets and breads and pastas made from white flour. (Cancer cells, fungus and parasites love sugar and white flour, too.)It takes time to cook vegetables and prepare nutritious meals and few of us have enough time these days.
I can help you find some shortcuts so that you can have foods you enjoy and still be healthy. There are some minerals like iodine that are vital to keeping your hormones and immune system strong.
In 2014 I wish for you the strength of mind it takes to create the life you want, and the good health to enjoy it.
