Health Care Reform

Blogging A to Z: H

I bet you think from this title I am going to jump on a soapbox about Obama-care and why I do or do not agree with it. Wrong.  I am not going to even pretend I know how to fix that broken giant.

Instead, I am going to share with you our health plan.  If you've read this blog in the last week you can guess what it is.

I am becoming more and more convinced that what we put into our mouths has the power to either heal us or kill us. I heard recently that Americans spend more on health care than food. This cheap food is making us sick and decreasing our quality of life.  No longer are we (my family) going to be satisfied with the status quo where food is concerned.  We are creating for ourselves a new normal...where slight inconvenience comes second to consuming whole, healthy foods.

I am not saying we will never again eat a restaurant cheeseburger or order Pizza Hut, but these meals will be few and far between.  

Right now we are healthy and strong....on the surface.  Deep down, though, I know my aches and pains, Hub's anxiety and the kids' hyperactivity is directly related to the garbage I give them to eat.
