When I think back at my life growing up in Arkansas and Texas I never really heard the words diet or nutrition. People ate what they wanted and worked hard. I had two sets of great grandparents who were married 70 years and lived to be in their 90's. But today we are a world that is spreading chemicals on everything, super size the food and quit when things get tough including exercise, eating habits, work and marriage.
There are times when I wish we could bring back 'the old days'. But instead I try to make today better. No pill will make me live longer. In fact there is no guarantee my heart will beat tomorrow. But I have all the tools I need to change to make a healthier day. The more I think about it, it looks very similar to "those old days."
