This whole journey has really helped to reshape how I think about my daily life. Yesterday, while grocery shopping, I found myself really caring about the foods that might/could contribute to increasing our risk of cancer. We eat a lot of chicken in our house, and I usually grab what’s on sale. There are very few meat brands that don’t use hormones in their product, and unfortunately the one that does wasn’t on sale. But i just couldn’t bring myself to buy something that could increase the very thing I’m fighting to avoid.
I bought one chicken (hormone free) that hopefully will last us a few days, and ended up just having to be more creative about meals that wouldn’t use chicken this week.
My veggie nutritionist sister-in-law is probably cheering right now ….
Another change I experienced is wanting to do more physical activity with the kids. In the freezing cold, and largely against her will, Jo and I went out and took a long walk with our dog. It ended up being so much fun as we played “ice ball soccer” on the sidewalks at my work.
Great way to spend a day-off — with my favorite little inspiration :).
