Raw Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

   Recently I learned that I am addicted to sugar. I read an article entitled "Sugar is More Addictive than Cocaine" and it helped me to know that I am not the only one with this issue. I am trying to teach my kids how addictive sugar is and how it can take over your life, I know that it has mine. I was raised with a lot of sugar in my diet and very little fresh fruits and veggies. What little fruit was normally made into pies and the veggies were cooked to death and very often with a sauce poured over it.

   I love my family dearly and I know that they did the best they could with the information that they had at the time. I seek to do the best that I can at feeding and educating my kids in the proper way to eat and why it is so very important to do so. I am saddened when I see adults offering these addictive and harmful sugar filled foods to kids. I know that they mean well but so did my family when I was growing up and it still did me a lot of harm.

   I go to a very small church and we have a prayer list with 51 people on it, more than are usually at church on Sunday morning, requesting prayer and 18 of them have some form of cancer. That is 1 in 3. Every week I look at this list and just want to cry. How many of these people could have been saved if they had known the truth about food and nutrition? The ones that have so much of the power in advertising just tell us what they need to to sell their product and improve their bottom line. What is a human life worth?

Powerful post Devona - it can be so frustrating and sad, but we can do something about it and you already are with your family. If we all take those small steps to educate just a few more, eventually the knowledge will spread to everyone :)
