I was poking around on Vegan Momma recently. Earlier in July she wrote:
I’m always amazed at the huge disconnect that many people have with food and how it affects their bodies. You would think I would get used to it after all these years, but it still surprises me. We’re not helpless we have control of a lot of the conditions that happen within our bodies. If we continue to feed our bodies junk why in the world do we expect to receive peak performance, sorry (in most cases) it’s not going to happen. Remember GIGO (garbage in, garbage out) yeah that applies to our eating habits also.
As I blogged on Monday, Jane's been disinterested in cooking and we've gotten tired of the local restaurants. So we've been eating a bit more junk food. Now it's nothing like when I was in school, and I'd have a bag of Doritos for dinner. It's the height of summer and there's always some kind of veggie salad in the fridge. But we've been eating a bit more vegan junk food. And I feel it. Perhaps it psychosomatic. Perhaps it's the heat. But I've been a bit more sluggish this week.
We all know that junk food is bad for you. The thing that I'm finding a bit ironic here is that it doesn't taste as good as it used to. Over time my taste buds have changed. Maybe next time I'll remember that and will save myself and just eat good, healthy food instead.
Anyway, Jane and I have promised ourselves to get back on track after the holiday weekend. No more garbage in!!!
