Here’s the LAST sneak peek of Happy Healthy Gut! This book launches on Thursday, January 2nd (3 DAYS!), and I’m so excited! I hope you enjoy the last preview…
From Chapter Twelve (Get Healthy, Feel Beautiful):
“Our western diet is awful, and it’s the largest contributor to our digestion being awful, too. It contains far too much animal meat, dairy, processed food, and chemical additives, while encouraging the consumption of far too few whole grains, raw vegetables, and just plain nourishment. We also rely too heavily on medications and surgeries to repair our ailments, instead of looking to what we literally need in order to live and prosper, which is simply good, fresh, whole, and healing food.
We really are what we eat. If we consume fresh produce and whole grains, we will feel young, vibrant and be whole. If we fill our bodies with chemicals, animal proteins, and fast food, we will become toxic, overweight, and proceed to get sick at an alarming rate.
“Food shouldn’t need to be irradiated to be safe. Animals shouldn’t need to be pumped full of antibiotics. We shouldn’t be ingesting food that is making us sick and depressed. We shouldn’t be living on cocktails of drugs or weight-loss pills. Animals shouldn’t be bred to grow so big so fast that their joints can’t support their weight. And we shouldn’t have people suffering from malnutrition in this land of plenty.” [i] –Gene Baur, Farm Sanctuary
We know change is forthcoming because of the growing demand for organic food and naturally-raised animals, and people all over are beginning to pay attention to these more readily available products, and learning about the health benefits that they offer. It’s a giant learning curve, but we are all going to get there. Why not give yourself a more substantial chance at success on the digestive front, and start now? You don’t have to be in pain anymore—don’t accept a mediocre life. You deserve better, so start treating yourself as if you do. Start thinking food-forward! Will that lunch you ordered help or hinder your body? How will eating it make you feel after? These questions matter, because your happiness matters. Your life matters. Don’t waste time feeling sub-par!
We have to open our eyes and ears and be morally at peace with the decisions that we make in regards to an issue we face several times every day: what to eat. You are your own best advocate for change, and you deserve to experience wellness that you may have long ago given up on.”
