When our fuzzy bundles of joy were only 10 months old, we knew they were little killing machines. They 1st brought home grasshoppers, butterflies... then small birds... then larger birds THEN... it happened. I walked in the front door and at my feet on the rug there was my cute kitty Skima, eating the insides out of a freshly killed adult furry woodland creature. She was licking her chops since she had just polished off all of the organs.
Now, I have given birth twice, butchered meat and watched my fair share of nasty surgery videos- but embarrassingly enough I screamed like a little sissy girl and started doing the "icky dance", like I was trying to shake off the memory in a weird 1979 kinda way.
> go to a Nutrition for Kitties 101 class,
>have a professional cat teach her what to eat first
>nor were the squirrels innards labeled "biggest bang for your nutritional buck right here!"
We all have an innate wisdom (including kitties) that knows what to do. When we cut our finger, it heals. When we twist an ankle, it swells to immobilize the joint. When we smell food, we start to salivate. All of these things and thousands more are apart of our innate wisdom that we don't need to "make" happen- they happen naturally. Suh-weeeet, stuff I don't need to do personally. Talk about a checklist I don't want to be in charge of!
Some may say that fast food is more affordable than fresh food. Well, there is nothing farther from the truth. Let's look at some stats:
> 68.8% of adults in America are overweight or obese (CDC stat)
>Obesity related healthcare cost per year $240,000,000,000 (Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser)
> Plus the Over $60,000,000,000 (http://www.worldometers.info/weight-loss/) minimally each year is spent in weight loss products /divide those by the
>Population of America is 313 million (United States Census)
>Doing the math: Additional spending of $958 per every man, woman and child per year to their cheap fast food. For a family of 4 that eat fast food 1x/wk: add $74 bucks to your "Value Menu"- That would change the line at the drive thru!
>Now, add that my family of 4 does not go to the golden arches, most of my friends do not and I am guessing tons of other people who are health conscious don't so all of our $958 gets added to those that are partaking in the drive thru epidemic.
> I love knowing that I just raised my income by $3,832! MORE MATH, Yeah!
> 65 (retiring age) - 18 (considered an adult)= 47 years of employment. Multiply that by my new income= Holy Crap!! That is $180,104- that is more than the Power Ball ever threw my way- WAY MORE. (Yes, I know I didn't have children at the age of 18 and that they will move out at some point in time- but you get the drift :)
If you have digestive issues, go and see your local vitalistic chiropractor that can make sure the nerves that tell the stomach and intestines what to do are working properly. Yes, eat as clean as you can and go get adjusted!
It will change your life!
