I need some green food. Every Wednesday I attend a meeting which has a catered meal. The meals are very unhealthy. Last week it was a BBQ bathed in a sugar based BBQ sauce, with mashed potatoes in margarine, corn on the cob and white bread rolls. Nothing green. So today I am eating a salad before I go to the meeting. Baby kale and romaine lettuce with leeks, carrots tomatoes and home grown herbs. Call it a defensive eating strategy.
After reading Joel Fuhrman, Eat to Live, I realize how important green vegetables are to the diet for health. Today I am getting my green food. I have to admit I often crave the fun foods but they do not make me feel good. Greens are the best.
