As a woman who leads a mostly sedentary lifestyle, taking care of my body and moving is extremely important. But, it’s more than just being active. What we eat is so important to living long and healthy lives.
After a conversation with a coworker the other night, it became evident to both of us, that we have to get our acts together. Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women? And on top of that, 80% of heart disease is PREVENTABLE! This is crazy to me. We are literally killing ourselves!
This sparked something in me. If I want to live a long and healthy life, I need to continue to make changes. I need to get up, move, and cut the crap out of my diet! More produce, lean meats, and fish, less processed food, white flour, and sugar.
By following the simple rules of clean eating and cutting the junk out of my family’s diet, I am helping us fight off disease in the only way I know how!
