Two weeks ago, I busted my computer screen (that’s why you haven’t seen a post from me lately). I had taken my computer along on a trip and slid it into the outside pocket of my carryon. When I had to plane-side check the bag, due to the small size of the plane, I forgot to remove the computer and getting slammed around by baggage handlers, did my poor computer in. A heartbreaking moment then, to open my computer and see a screen that looked like someone had thrown a baseball through it. The weird thing on a computer though, the glass is not broken, it’s just on the inside.
We too can get “broken” on the inside if we do not take protective measures. Eating junk food may not make our outsides look bad, but the inside may be cracked and dying. But there’s a lot we can do to protect ourselves. The tip I want to share today is to eat your GOMBBS! Say what? GOMBBS: GREENS, ONIONS, MUSHROOMS, BEANS, BERRIES AND SEEDS. These are the super foods that can keep us healthy. They are packed full of phytonutrients, as well as both soluble and/or non-soluble fiber. Eating a variety of these everyday, can help protect you against cancer and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). And in case you didn’t know, greens are 25% protein, so cut back on the meat which is mostly fat, and up the greens to get your daily protein intake. Eat your SUPER FOODS and protect your insides from being “broken.”
Peace and joy!
