Supposedly, I'm a vegetarian. But I eat very few veggies. And most of the food I eat is cooked. I know I need to eat more vegetables and I know I need to eat them in their raw state. This will energize me and make me feel more alive. Right now, feel sluggish and always tired. I know the tiredness could be from the fact that I don't sleep more than 2 or 3 hours at a stretch since I am exclusively breastfeeding but eating better would help, I'm sure of it. I used to be really good about having a green smoothie everyday but lately, I've lapsed. I can go a whole week without ever eating live greens and my toddler does better than I do at eating fruits. I'm totally preoccupied with taking care of kids and the house and trying to squeeze out a couple of minutes to knit and read . . . I feel it. Sluggish. I've made many drastic changes in my life. I'm hesitant to make a drastic change like eating only raw foods *but* I can start by challenging myself to drink at least one green smoothie a day. I'm also challenging myself to get into juicing--I've got at least three books on the subject.
So, I'm excited about getting a good juicer although currently I'm trying to decide which I need more: a juicer or a good water filter. I might have to bite the bullet and get both (especially since I'm making our nut milk here at home). I've done the research on the juicer and know what I want to get. As for the water filter, I'm utterly confused. I want something that will filter out fluoride and chlorine (can you believe I actually smell the chlorine in our bath water?). It looks like I will need a reverse osmosis system. I don't want water that's completely mineral-free though because I know we need some of those trace minerals. Like I said, I'm confused.
Being healthy and well is not cheap. But you can't put a price on being healthy and well.
