Against my better judgement, I've been suckered into the cliche "diet" resolution...among others. Well, maybe not dieting per say, but at least trying to be healthier.
Last night we consumed/juiced more fruits and vegetables than we have since the garden was in full swing. The holiday season is always ridiculously carb laden, gravy soaked, and packed with enough sugar to keep the National Diabetes Foundation going for the next ten years. So maybe this will be a nice way to boost our systems after the holiday binge.
Much of the driving force behind raising our own animals is to change the way we eat. To simplify food and incorporate more whole foods. To eat eggs from chickens that have seen the light of day. Who eat grass and bugs, and now...who eat fresh kale and spinach pulp in the dead of winter. It all has to circle back into something good. I truly believe that.
So will 2013 be the magic year? The healthy year where we find the secret to eternal youth, and juice our way to svelte, chiseled magnificence? I doubt it, but every little bit helps.
