Eat Good Feel Good

eat Good, feel Good. We Are What We Eat
In this day and age there is enough information available for us to make some pretty strong conclusions about the relationships between our diets and our health. For my family, eating organic has gone from an occasional thing, to 90% of the food we buy. Besides that our family has gone from just me eating gluten-free, to a “mostly” gluten free and a vegetarian diet.

My kids are quick to say that they aren’t vegetarian. They jump at the chance to eat the chicken, cheese and hamburgers that we don’t feed them anymore. I’m glad that they can enjoy other foods when were eating out, or at friends house. But when it comes to our house, they eat what we eat.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to convert others to this diet. I believe everyone should be aware of the things that are in our food that makes it bad for us and ,eat what they think is best for them. I am advocating understanding what you put into your mouth.  

We Are What We Eat
Since we have made the switch this past summer I feel much better than I used to in many ways.  I’m less tired, get upset stomach less, and I haven’t been sick a day since I’ve started it. These days I’m much more satisfied with a kale salad then I would be having a greasy cheesy steak. Eat Good, Feel Good has proven a true statement for me!



Putting the Pieces Together

fitting the Pieces of your life Together
When I was a child my life was whole.
Everything I did revolved around: my parents, my house, my brothers, and my friends. They all fit nicely together. Then as I grew older pieces of my life started to stand on their own, apart from each other. School became a place that was separate from the rest of my life. My school friends were different than my “home” friends, and the two didn’t mix, except maybe once a year for birthday parties.

As I became a teenager, the things I talked about with my friends became separate from what I talked about with my family. My basketball friends were different than my “hanging out” friends, which were different from my “home” friends.

This type of fragmentation continued and reached a peak when I was in college. I related to people based on how I knew them; work, school, family, friends, church, sports, etc. The contact I had with people, and the way I acted, varied with each group. My life was fragmented, and at times I really didn’t know who I really was. At my core I was a whole person, but the different facets of my life were very different, and sometimes at odds with each other.

After College, I moved to a new state, I had a new life, and I began re-arranging it (sometimes unconsciously) into the things that were important to me. Now that I’m married with children my personal life is on an even keel, family mesh nicely with my friends and and their wives and kids, and my parents, etc.

My professional and “online life” was altogether different. My web presence was divided into my different online activities. In one place I would talk about upcoming public speaking events, in another I would write about gluten free news, another graphic design, and just about anywhere else I would be discussing internet marketing or social media. We all wear different “hats” throughout the day, but in order to simplify my professional life, and my online activities I created this website that allows me to put the pieces back together.
