While we wait for Thursday’s appointment…(the test results and hopefully a clear plan of action)… I am pulling over to the side of the road for a while.
I am using this time to learn about nutrition. I know that the outcome is in God’s hands, but I also believe that He gives us the responsibility to do what we can. Choices! Feeding our bodies, treating them right, is so important in everyday life. It becomes even more crucial when dealing with illness. I am hoping a good nutrition plan will augment the treatments.
I’m really not a junk food junkie to begin with, but now I’m going to watch things even closer, and add a few new twists.
Did you know that sugar feeds cancer cells?? Simply knowing that makes it quite easy to pass up that donut! I do love my fruits and veggies….that will be an easy thing to bulk up on. I bought a new juicer to add that element into the daily diet. (I am so impressed with this juicer! Much nicer than others I have used.) Kale is a power food…. this week i roasted kale ‘chips’, and sautéed it with taters. Yummy. Can’t wait for the asparagus to pop up. Garlic will also be a daily ‘treat’. I quarter a clove, and swallow it like a vitamin. (No vampires around here!) Green tea and raw nuts… increased.
I am open to ideas from others who have researched the cancer/nutrition connection. God has provided us with a wide variety of good things to eat! Recipes welcome!
(I just read a good reminder in an “Eating Well” magazine: “If it wasn’t FOOD 100 years ago, it isn’t food today!” )
