This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!
Having survived the so-called Apocalypse, I woke up today resolved to make better choices about my health – especially what I eat – in the coming year. 2012 has been a big year for food – whether new restaurants, or the local and urban food movements – and it is the basis of good health, so it makes sense.
For those of you who know I am already nearly vegan, you might be wondering how the hell I can improve even more. Having had my first naturopathic visit and acupuncture session yesterday, I became aware of some of the simple things we can choose not to eat that can improve our health. (That being said, I do plan on indulging this holiday and then starting anew in 2013!) Also, there are so many types of solutions other than pharmaceuticals that can help to heal our bodies.
I learned a lot during the cleanse I went on earlier in the Spring, mostly the benefits of eating a gluten-free diet. But I still have leaps and bounds to go when it comes to my sugar cravings. I have been trying to eat the “healthy” kind of sugar, but unless you are consuming raw chocolate or other types of unrefined sugar, there really is no healthy solution. I could also stand to consume more fruit. I learned yesterday that chocolate aggravates stomach problems! Yes, I am disappointed to hear this because I love chocolate (and have become a better compromiser with dark). And after all the work that science has done to try and prove the benefits of eating it.
If I had to select a new year’s resolution, it would be to become more conscious of every single thing I am ingesting. Whether your health is a part of your 2013 resolutions or not, I hope you are taking time to gain expertise and plan for completing your goals!
