Watch Your Weight While Going Green At Waterbrook
It’s not news that Americans are overweight. The First Lady has started a movement to battle childhood obesity called Let’s Move! and HBO will premiere a four-part documentary on May 15 entitled The Weight of the Nation.
This will explore both families and individuals struggling with weight, something that everyone has to deal with. But did you know you can combine healthy eating habits and eco-friendly actions?
Find Food At The Farmers Market – It’s easy to see how you’ll be eating healthier with meals made with products from local farmers, but it could also affect the way you think about food. If you take into mind the work and effort that went into getting your eggs to market, maybe you’ll think twice before you order a fast-food supplement.
Cooking Your Own Meals – Using your kitchen at Waterbrook is better than standing in line, regardless if you’re using organic items in your meals. It also means you can exhibit some self-discipline by making a smaller portion. If necessary use a smaller plate to visualize a ‘regular’ amount.
Super Swap Meat – It’s obvious how vegetarians and vegans are better for the environment since they rely on Mother Nature for their food. They’re also lowering the amount of greenhouse gas emissions associated with animal agriculture. To cut out meat entirely isn’t easy, but substituting a fruit plate for lunch is a reasonable compromise.
Can you imagine a weight loss movement that captured the nation’s attention for longer than a second and got everyone thinking about a healthier future? Help contribute to that future by sharing your ideas about the subject on our Facebook page.
