IF I AM WHAT I EAT; I HAVE TO BE TURNING GREEN. I thought I would add a little humor with a lot of truth thrown in for good measure. Collectively, as we are a composite of all of the people, good or bad, we have had relationships with during our lives; so are we a composite of what we eat. I saw a picture of colorful healthy foods and its caption was “Eat a Rainbow” and it resonated with me how we desire to gaze at a beautiful rainbow and maybe, if we continue to practice eating colorful foods someone appreciate our “rainbows”.
To add to this thought, I am including a collection of quotes which some well known people have said the same thing but in different words.
An interesting article in Goodreads Daily Quotes offered a great buffet of relative quotes.

“you know what the best kind of organic certification would be? make an unannounced visit to a farm and take a good long look at the farmer’s bookshelf. Because what you’re feeding your emotions and thoughts is what this is really all about. the way I produce a chicken is an extension of my worldview. You can learn more about that by seeing what is sitting on my bookshelf than having me fill out a whole bunch of forms.” Joel Salatin”
“The brain is not nourished on beans and truffles but rather the food manages to reconstitute the molecules of the brain once it has been turned into homogeneous and assimilable substances, which potentially have the “same nature”, as the molecules of the brain”
Didn’t you enjoy these quotes? Maybe not as much as some of the foods we have eaten, hopefully in the past. As my husband and I move toward a healthier lifestyle, selecting a healthier choice in our grocery shopping, preparation, and presentation has allowed us to accept this is not a prison sentence but a door to better living. I found it amazing when society talks about saving the environment and not producing waste; they chose “Going Green” as their theme. I consider my husband and I as the Green Team adding more good greens and natural foods as the main players in our eating regime.
I find it more colorful and losing weight and getting healthier leads to a more colorful life.
