the right to choose 

Window sil herb garden

With all the talk, documentaries and media about sugar and eating healthy,  I’m grateful that we live in a country (australia) where we have the luxury to choose to change the way we eat.

That we can make the decision to eat healthy, to cut out sugars, to choose organic, to eat sustainably etc etc.

That we can pop out to our gardens and plant some veges that we’ve conveniently bought from the shop just down the road or plant that indoor herb garden you’ve been wanting to do!

It’s an incredibly confusing world to me when we have such extremes with food. Poverty, starvation and no choice on one side of the world and extreme gluttony and overeating on the other!

But with the choice to choose what we eat, why aren’t we eating the right things!?

We know what will make us healthy and live longer! But most of all we should be taking the healthy option because we can choose!

We’ve been talking a lot about this lately, the old hubster and I, about how easy it is to choose the wrong thing because we are so “busy” (ugh i hate that word!). But it’s true!

We prioritise what we choose to, and eating good food should be at the top of it!  After all, our survival and health depends on it!

Loving these documentaries at the moment which have helped me to keep my sugar free/healthy eating head space right and to keep things in perspective;

  1. That whole ‘busy’ thing IS so true – it’s the worst! I can’t tell you how many times Christian and I will just end up going to Chipotle or something because the day has been busy and we’re both too tired to cook. (This is why, for me, prepping things and having them handy is so key.) Great post, Finley! Thanks for the encouragement!

    1. Thanks for reading and stopping by Emily 🙂

      I agree with the prepping thing definitely. Its way too easy to not be organised )
