Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.Hippocrates
As you might know from previous posts, more than a year ago my husband found out he has diabetes. T2. This discovery had an immense impact on our life. It has changed how we eat, how we live, and how we think about food.
Since that time, we have both gone through a metamorphosis. It was important to get information about how to live healthier and then take steps to do so.
I am committed to living healthier and therefore ultimately living happier.
Over the past year and a half I have read countless articles, listened to doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and health coaches. I have watched endless documentaries and have read several books about the topic of nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, stress, healthier lifestyles, and healthy recipes in the past year.
I journaled about some of my discoveries and posted several of my recipes on my blog, but the learning has not stopped. I have grown and progressed in the past year. What I felt was healthy a year ago, was indeed healthier than what we were used to, but I am happy to write that this journey has progressed to even healthier eating and living.
This journey of discovery has been incredible. It has been exciting and at times mind-blowing.
I already had a background in nutrition. I graduated from a European culinary/nutrition/hotelier school. But what I’ve learned in the last year DOES NOT compare.
I have learned more about nutrition, but most importantly, I now see the intense connection between nutrition and health/disease. SO IMPORTANT!
Incredibly, and I guess it isn’t really a surprise, EVERYTHING is connected.
Our world – our environment – what we do – exercise – what we eat – our body – our gut – our mind – our health – and disease…. ALL CONNECTED in a much deeper sense than I ever envisioned.
To fit everything into one blog post would be way too long, and you’d most likely give up before you read to the end. Just be reassured… I will write about it, a little at a time.
