Good Nutrition!

Posted on March 15, 2013. Filed under: My Lemon Recipes | Tags: , , , , , , , |

As I am typing this on my new phone (thanks Lamar), the house is filled with the aroma of brown basmati rice and chicken andouille shrimp gumbo.  I prefer home cooked meals from scratch now, but it wasn’t always that way.  Growing up, it was a treat to eat out, even fast food.  That got turned upside down in my adult years.  Bluntly, my health paid the price and now I know better.  You can’t subject your body to junk, then expect top performance.

Your body has a keen way of letting you know when you are not getting good nutrition, and it’s not a good feeling.  Some people seek a doctor, some a nutritionist, some ignore the symptoms unitl real damage is done.  it has been my experience that it’s best to correct the nutrition, then maintain optimal behaviors.  I know this is easier said than done, but we must do our best.

Oftentimes, people overlook how the presence of others affect their lives. To be in optimal mental and emotional health, you must take care that your circle of influence, your community, is good nutrition. No one is perfect, but if you have people around you that constantly throw negativity, GET RID OF THEM. If you hold on to nothing else, please know that you are a unique person with a unique gift for the world. You have a purpose to tap into. When you allow negative people to disrupt your presence, you lose focus on your greatness.nyt-cj-and-dr-judy

Through the years, I’ve experienced poor and good nutrition. I much prefer good. Just like an athlete, the good nutrition of people can help strengthen you and help you aspire to personal bests. Good nutrition can help you get through challenging times. Good nutrition sometimes just makes you feel good!

Take a look at your dreams and aspirations. Now take a look at your nutrition. How healthy is your circle of influence? You may have to distance yourself from some, or completely remove others. This is also about boundaries, protecting what you need to protect. Remember, you are worthy of good, so cut back on the junk food people!
