Life's been kinda slow around here lately. I haven't been creating much. Haven't been doing much of anything worth mentioning. I've found a few vintage item to list in the shop, but haven't taken photos yet. Maybe next week.
I've been trying to focus more on eating right and kicking my addiction to sugar. So far it's not going well, but it still seems to take up most of my energy just trying to fight the cravings. It's such a challenge for me to find healthy foods that are high in nutrients and fiber, low in fat and sugar, that are still tasty. Even things that don't taste sweet, like Corn Flakes, or white pasta turn to sugar in our bodies, which is a concern for people like me who have a predisposition to diabetes.
Sugar, why, if you are the enemy, do you taste so good?
I watched Food Inc. yesterday. And while I thought the documentary was a little too "all over the place" to be truly affecting, it does make you want to be aware of what you're eating. The filmmakers were obviously against large corporations controlling our food supply and production, but the takeaway message for me was to lean toward whole foods and buy local products grown in a fair and sustainable way when possible. I'm not anti-corporation, but I am pro-health and I think everyone should be aware of what foods will nourish their bodies in the best way. Seems obvious. Yet our country faces a health crisis that very much stems from our food and lifestyle choices.
Okay. I'll step down from my soapbox now. I really should get to work around the house. Aaron's mom arrives in just a couple days, so there is furniture to be dusted, meals to be planned, a craft room to be organized.
And right now, there is this little dog that needs to be walked.
