AIMING FOR A HEALTHY START TO THE DAY (strawberries, banana and mango)
I’m thinking maybe eating a preponderance of real, whole foods, may have shortened the duration and intensity of whatever this cold/flu thing is that I had.
I have to say, I am not a purist (my husband calls us “flexitarians”), but I do aim to include mainly healthy stuff: vegetables, starches, greens, legumes, fruit, nuts — with most days excluding meat or eggs or dairy. Less animal-related products has to have good effects for me and the animals – I feel better and they feel better. Some say if you don’t adhere to strictly vegan standards, you aren’t helping animals at all; I disagree. Less mass slaughter has to be better than more of the same; I think it will lead to more humane conditions.
