It’s been a struggle recently. An internal battle. A question I’ve been grappling with.
How can I have a more healthy diet…but still also not eat less cheeseburgers?
It seems a paradox. But this morning in the office I caught a clip on CNBC of a product that may just change the world.
A cheeseburger, of meat and cheese…composed entirely of plants. It claims to taste the best, and according to the news report, won’t be sold stateside until 2016.
Until this crack team from Stanford University brings the plantburger to my plate, though…I just can’t find it conscionable to be housing beefcheesers.
Simply because we have moved on from substance abuse & cut cancerous chemicals from our daily intake does not automatically guarantee us a clean bill of health. While I intend to retain my cheeky youthful spirit well into retirement, there is no arguing with the biological clock. I do an adequate/moderate/average/acceptable job of maintaining my diet&exercise; but, as with all areas of life, there is always room for improvement.
Such accomplishments are neither instantaneous, nor permanent once reached. Detach from the desire to be fitter, now. Don’t rue the cultivation & prep time for a nutritious, homemade meal. Dedicating time to care for yourself is important. Your efforts will extend unto others by virtue of setting an example; of reaching a pillar of purposeful health. It’s OK to slow down a little, if life requires time.
