fast food

This day and age, we are taking health for granted. We live such busy lives that we are killing ourselves with the food we are eating. We shuffle from one appointment to another, and end up grabbing our meals at whatever fast food place is nearby. Before you know it, months have gone by, and we have been giving our cells nothing but garbage to live on. It is time to make a change for the better, and start living healthier.

The easiest way to do this is to grow your own garden. I know you’re thinking, why don’t I just go to the store and buy fruits and vegetables? Well if you actually add up all of the time you spend running from one store to the next, you would see that growing your own crops is the faster and easier way. Once the ground work is done, nature takes over and provides you with months of healthy food for so little time and money invested.

The hardest part about it, is getting started. Look here for information on starting your own garden. First you want to decide, which are your favorite vegetables. You might be surprised to find that your list will be very long and you have to narrow it down to maybe 10 or 15 of your top choices. Most people don’t think about the vegetables they enjoy, and are surprised when they put them down on paper.

Now it’s time to wait. But you won’t be waiting for long. Before you know it, you’ll come home from work and have all sorts of new growth to pick in store for later meals. You will be amazed how fast nature does her thing with just a little bit of water and some sunshine. If you have young children, this can be an exciting activity for them; seeing the sprouts go from tiny leaves to full-blown plants. You will be able to provide them quality information about how plant life develops. You wouldn’t believe how excited kids get seeing things grow before their eyes.

So let’s tally this up. So for a couple of hours outside in the fresh air, the small cost of a few seeds, and a little exercise; you get months of healthy food literally right at your doorstep. It save you both time and money, and gives you the pleasure of creating something with your own hands.

In just a short period of time, you will fill healthy and energetic. You will be giving your body the nutrients that it needs to sustain any lifestyle. Think about the cells of your body like small cars. If you don’t take care of them properly, they won’t run. So imagine you have billions of small cars all breaking down and you at the same time. That is what’s happening to your body when you do not eat properly. You will notice now, that you wake up happier, more alert, and ready to take on the day when you’re being is flowing with all the nutrients it needs.
