Hump Day Health Tips
Hello, my name is Michaele and I am a junk food addict.
My last drive-through was on November 26, 2012.
I have been clean for 9 days.
From the book Food Rules by Michael Pollan author of the Omnivore’s Dilemma
“Eating what stands on one leg [mushrooms and plant foods] is better than eating what stands on two legs [fowl], which is better than eating what stand on four legs [cows, pigs and other mammals]”.
If it came from a plant eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t.
Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.
Pay more, eat less.
Rule # 62
Plant a vegetable garden if you have the space, a window box if you don't.
Treat treats as treats.
"Special occasion foods offer some of the great pleasures of life, so we shouldn't deprive ourselves of them, but the sense of occasion needs to be resored. One way is to start making these foods yourself; if you bake desert yourself you won't go to that much trouble every day. Another is to limit your consumption of such foods to weekends or special occasions. Some people follow a so-called S policy; "no snacks, no seconds and no sweets - except on days that begin with the letter S.""
