There you go, that sounds like a nice idea. Sister in Florida, 2 months down south would be definitely health beneficial and you could even drive down there for just a few hundred dollars, that would save you five flights. Most likely once you settle down your whole family wold be happier and you could spend more time outdoors together. The food would be more local as Florida grows a huge amount of fruits for its size relative to other states. If I was a US citizen I would choose southern California coast or southern Florida to live. Remember your health is your Wealth, everyone has only one health, and like Doug says, there is no time out. Health is build or lost linearly gradually with each moment and all the various lifestyle choices. Living more than 50 deg. latitude away from the solar equator is definitely unhealthy for our species.
Mary - That is nice to hear you are raising your own family and staying close to your extended family. It is not too incredibly challenging to skip a couple months. In Mexico you can rent a house for 200 - 400 dollars a month and your whole family can stay there and flights to Puerto Vallarta are normally 600 to 700 bucks, so it can be done with even just $6000 to $8000 a family of 4 can have a good time. Just have to rent outside tourist traps. Food is cheap 10 to 15 bucks a day per person.
It's a pleasure Mary! Each one teach one as they say. And your teaching a whoole family! Thats awesome. Children are our future so automatically societies responsibility. So maybe collectively we are responsible for the neglect and mistreatment of children everywhere, that includes health/ exposure to misleading information in the media, i believe. Mothers are todays heros. I look forward to hearing more from you. X
Hey Mary! Thank you for connecting =) "Children are the seeds! The stronger the root the stronger the treee!!" thank you for being an admirable mother, for your health ethic. Im 21, its inspiring for all women of all ages to see this. Look forward to hearing from you. X
We talked about my knee having problems from running and whether or not cycling would help it, I've been cycling a ton over the last 48 days, about 820 miles, and the knee feels stronger now. I'm starting running again.
It's inevitable to make mistakes, but what's important is that we take more steps forward than back! The parenting/veganism thing with kids has been something that's on my mind lately, I'm not at all planning a family (in fact I don't even know if I ever will have one!), but I just find it amazing how people like you can raise kids to be mindful of their eating habits in the crazy world we live in, *especially* with a partner that doesn't pay attention to their food as much as you. Your kids are very lucky Mary :)!
P.S. I love my fruit shelf too! It took me a year to figure out how to store my fruit properly lol.
Thanks so much for your help with the Master Cleanse Question. I'm new to this lifestyle. As complicated as it seems. I think it really simplifies the complicated American Dieting Tips we have been taught and it feels complicated. Question by question. I am getting it. Thanks soooo much!
Yes it's me! You were missed, although I'm limiting computer time as well, and keeping a lower profile in general. Maybe you can make it to the Woodstock Fruit Festival this year?- it was very family friendly- and so awesome.
