I started thinking about how important it is to eat organic or Kosher meat. If you care anything about your family or yourself, or animals for that fact, eat better meat. I am kind of pissed because I went to my local Wegman’s which is my fave store in the world next to Target and Nordstrom-I digress, there is less Kosher meat there as of late. I am not Jewish, but I love Kosher because of the extra inspection that is done on the health of the animal and the humane treatment of the animal during growth stages and including when their life ends for consumption. I also love Kosher because the price is less than the word Organic. There used to be Organic Kosher at Wegman’s, but that mad no sense to me. So, there are like 2 tiny rows of kosher now. But I think that 5 dollars for 4 chicken thighs is not bad. I am not wealthy or rich, or upper middle class. I am barely middle class. What my barely middle class behind had to do was stop drinking lattes for 5.23 7 days a week. First off, the caffeine was hurting my body. Secondly, the 35 plus a weak was killing my barely there bank account. So, long long story short-give up things that are not necessary like cigs or beer or too much Starbucks to put better food into your body. I kind of feel like a big fat hypocrite saying this because I had an Asiago pretzel at Barnes and Noble for lunch and a 50 percent off Godiva dark chocolate peppermint candy bar. But…I don’t eat meat with hormones. So there!! Enjoy what you eat, but try to avoid hormones and steroids in your meat, aspartame in your foods and drinks, and basically artificial ingredients whenever you can. Those little changes can improve your help, help you live longer and help prevent disease. I may write more later, but I am cooking dinner late because we woke up late today so all of the meals are off schedule.
P.S. Besides the weak moment with the candy bar and pretzel, I am doing my clean eating. I was cold and hungry, so I slipped:( It is 15 degrees here.
