What’s chaffling you?
By now, if you are a regular reader of this article, you know that just about any food can be broken down, remade, and come out the other side not only better for you, but better tasting as well. It’s not always easy. It might require driving to more stores to find the right ingredients, longer time in the kitchen making items from scratch, or getting some special kitchen gadget.
Why do this, some may ask. We are all going to die anyway, right? That’s what I get asked all the time, and if those words have come out of your mouth, do me a favor and walk to your bathroom mirror, and then slap the you-know-what out of the moron you see there. See, it’s not about living forever, which sounds absolutely boring and dreadful. If you don’t believe me, just ask a vampire. After about 500 years, they just get downright weird from boredom.
It’s not even about living longer, when not one second past when you are reading this is guaranteed for anyone. It’s about aging. That doesn’t mean getting older. That is also just an unavoidable fact of being alive. Aging, on the other hand, is completely preventable, and it comes down to two things. How often you move or exercise is one component, but the other and bigger factor is what you eat. Dying isn’t scary, in fact, it’s damn easy and everyone can and will do it.
Aging, on the other hand, is truly terrifying and is a slow, painful process. I see people my age of 48 that look at two flights of stairs like it’s Mt. Everest, and already avoid any physical exertion at all costs. Now think of how they will feel at 60. Being strong and able to move is a major factor in quality of life. You don’t have to get weak and slow as you get older. It just takes a little effort in the kitchen and the gym and you can stay fit and strong your entire life. That’s going to be necessary for me anyway. With my bills, I’m only going to be able to take off a half day from work for my own funeral.
