     That sounds like a strange thing, dying healthy.   Perhaps, it sounds so strange because we’ve all been sold this idea that we will inevitably age, develop chronic disease and die unhealthy.   Or perhaps we have seen our own family members age and have poor quality of life in their later years.  I personally saw my grandparents pass away, in their 80’s, in poor states of health.    I had a grandmother die from Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer, another pass away from gastric cancer, and my grandfather died of rheumatoid arthritis, depression and malnutrition.  All of my grandparents were energetic and healthy earlier in life, but they all suffered and died unhealthy.   It was painful to watch them  develop these diseases and lose their quality of life.  At the time, I just thought this was their predetermined destiny.   We now know that all of these things and many more are largely preventable and reversible with lifestyle.  Of course, there are genetic variations that make us...

     

March is National Nutrition Month and this year the theme is “Eat Right. Live Right. Feel Right.”  That really sums it up for me.  The foods we put into our bodies affect the way we feel physically and psychologically.  Do you notice that you feel sleepy after eating?  Do you get bloated, feel nauseous, or have heartburn?  Do your joints ache?  Do you get headaches frequently?  What about sinus infections?  Do you suffer from fatigue, depression, anxiety, or brain fog?  How about stubborn belly fat?  All of these symptoms are likely related to food.

     We love Mexican food at our house!  Before making the necessary lifestyle changes to reverse my autoimmune disease, we would eat out at our favorite Mexican restaurant once per week.  I have a weakness for tortilla chips and salsa, but have to be careful about eating refined carbohydrate, especially processed products made with corn.  Mikey's tortillas are a great option as they have only 7 simple ingredients.   They're gluten-free, grain-free, dairy free, soy free, paleo, and vegan!

     Instead of waiting for taco Tuesday, we made some simple Saturday tacos!  By using basic, healthy ingredients, we made an awesome, flavorful dinner loaded with nutrients that definitely fits into my meal plan.  I don't have to sacrifice anything!  Thank you Mikey's for the free samples!
