So here we are in fall already!!!! Actually it’s one of my favorite times of the year. It’s often a time when most of us return to heavier workloads, kids go back to school and we try to squeeze in as much of the last remaining days of nice weather.
I don’t know about you but I’ve noticed a lot of people are taking some time to rethink their priorities. What they need to do to be healthier and to live a more balanced lifestyle. Here’s a way that I’ve discovered to do both.
Take some time for yourself.
Take some well-deserved down time and jump in the car and drive out to the country, it doesn’t have to be far (at least from where I live in Toronto). I did the same not too long ago and found myself in St. George, Ontario. It’s not that far from Toronto – somewhere between Hamilton and Guelph – but quite a beautiful drive. While on my travels, I happened to see a sign for fresh eggs, so I stopped in, because what could be nicer (and healthier) than some farm fresh eggs.
But eggs, my new super food, were just the beginning.
I was pleasantly surprised to find an assortment of other healthy farm fresh products such as: soy free fresh organic chicken, grass fed beef and so much more. Did you know, grass-fed beef has the recommended ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats (3:1.). Grass-fed beef is loaded with other natural minerals and vitamins, plus it’s a great source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) a fat that reduces the risk of cancer, obesity, diabetes and a host of other immune disorders.
Hunza folk, what do they know?
With a collection of healthy choices in hand, I proceeded to the checkout where I discovered a whole line of dried fruits along with their famous apricot seeds. I didn’t know this, but it is a well-known fact to gerontologists that the Hunza people of North Pakistan (an apricot mecca with a population eating a lot of everything apricot) are the longest-living and healthiest people in the world. Studies have proven that 100% of its population had perfect vision, while cancer, and other diseases were virtually unknown conditions. Wow… I grabbed two bags of apricot seeds.
