EAT TO LIVE, NOT LIVE TO EAT

Plant base eating is where I am at in my life now, I’m studying nutrition and learning to prepare vegan meals.  The health benefits for me is what lead me to the Bariatric Care Program for going on 3 years in September, It was being on the verge of having high blood pressure, at pre-diabetic status, sleep apnea, stage 3 liver fibrosis (Fatty Liver) and left ankle inflammation.  I have been testing myself since,  what works for me monitoring blood pressure and blood glucose daily, eating foods and writing down the reactions on my body.  Since having the Sleeve my stomach hurts a lot when I eat some foods that do not agree with me, that I use to eat with no problem in the past.  Pescatarian lifestyle was satisfying to me but still not eating clean enough to feel better, I still got headaches and often wondered where the fish came from, so I won’t be eating it any longer.  Wild caught fish eat organisms from their natural habitats, farmed fish contains higher levels of organic pollutants than wild caught fish which can cause health issues.  Most fish here in the USA are farmed raised which have been associated with carcinogenic and reproductive harm.  Seafood was a great part of my life, but not feeling well can’t become my norm if I can change it.

I have spent an alarming amount of time of my life not feeling and being at my best, wasted years stressing and away from loved ones just hoping to figure myself out without all the distractions.  I tend to isolate myself when I’m going through stress and hardships not wanting to put my issues on others.  This has also kept me from physically being present in the lives of people I care for, although I’ve been a voice away to listen when needed, but may not have been enough to most.  I’ve had a long journey of learning and mentally growing, my natural ability to research information has been my pleasure.  I pray to live a full loving life and be a blessing to my loved one’s for as long as YAH (GOD) uses me to serve.  Taking care of self first is a must to be a blessing, so being as healthy as I can at this stage in my life is a must.

(Deuteronomy 30:15-19)

15” See, I have put before you today life and good, and death and evil,

16” in that I am commanding you today to love YAH (YHWH) your Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to guard his commands, and his laws, and his right-ruling.  And you shall live and increase, and YAH (YHWH) your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you go to possess.

17” But if your heart turns away, and you do not obey, and shall be drawn away, and shall bow down to other mighty ones and serve them,

18” I have declared to you today that shall certainly perish, you shell not prolong your days in the land which you are passing over the Jordan to enter and possess.

19“I have called the heaven and earth as witnesses today against you:  I have put before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed.

SHALOM!
