Food for thought….

As I was searching for cheap healthy recipe ideas….At first before reading this, I was sceptical thinking, ‘here we go, another ‘How to’ about super foods and such’, but actually Jamie Oliver has got a point.

He focuses more on the spirit of community, (social interactions, sharing food and stress with our support networks) **which is hugely important and can lack badly in city cultures**, the role of religion or belief systems in maintaining a sense of purpose in life, and getting more physically active by doing simple ordinary things like housework or walking more to destinations, which we have an app to do everything now for us it seems (although I’m not completely knocking apps because they can be quite useful). Appreciating more plant based diets and consuming moderate amounts of wine every day if at all.

And if I look back at my parents lifetime when they were growing up, it’s true. I had grandparents that lived till 100 and older relatives that are still mentally, physically strong. Food for thought…
