Number seven is Radically Changing Your Diet and that was the first one of my personal factors that I categorized. In this world of endless diet claims it is easy to fall into a place where we think we are doing poorly at this. Man, according to some people we should be eating cardboard and chisels, you know what I mean?
Then on top of that there are always studies coming out telling us to do one thing and then the next week to do the opposite. And all that very scientific sounding. Am I making excuses?
Then there is the fact that my parents and ancestors never had that much trouble with diet. They ate what was in season and largely what they or their neighbors grew themselves. This makes the most sense to me at the moment.
Yes, perhaps we are exposed to more toxins then they were. Maybe we need to do more than they did. Perhaps, but I am not seeing that clearly. There is plenty of hype in the diet world and it is easy to get caught up in that, being afraid.
Last night My Rebecca and I had a simple dinner after the afternoon Phil’s Camino walk and tapas. Tapas was a little cheese, crackers, olives and wine.
Our dinner was half a small flatiron steak each, corn on the cob and green beans. The corn and beans we had just picked. I’m calling that dietary good for the moment.
Well, Felipe, how can this be? One minute you say your diet needs a lot of help and the next you say that it is good for the moment? Hmmm. Yes, there does seem to be a problem or at least some confusion.
We had a wonderful walk yesterday with old friends and new friends. The Camino continues to provide. We are fortunate. Summer loves, Felipe.
