I recently discovered that I love dipping beef jerky in sour cream. I mean, really. REALLY. Man. Awesome stuff, beef jerky and sour cream. Like a creamy white gooey beef covered goo to put in my mouth and just.. mmm.
Originally this post was going to talk about how the hubby and I have managed to escape corporate fly-DNA food a little bit. That’s not as easy as it sounds in some parts. Back up north, I kept trying to make it to the farmer’s market and couldn’t bloody FIND the thing. The only reason why we’ve found it here is because the nice guys at the meat market passed the word. So every Saturday it has become our weekly routine to spend it foraging for healthy food.
We’ve watched this little market grow from one stall to several, and for the first time last week we managed to go shopping for everything we needed and (this is key) *not have to go anywhere else*! Awesome!!
If you don’t think healthy food has anything to do with my ability to write stories and make comics, think again. It has everything to do with it. My goodness: I don’t feel perfectly great these days, but I *do* feel better. And better is a wonderful thing! With less chemicals and crap in my diet, I’ve become slightly more productive.
Now if only I could also lose the weight. HA!
I encourage everyone to get to know where their local farmer is. Sometimes the food is super expensive (we spent $7 on a loaf of bread once) and other times it’s a good price. You just gotta learn to get around a bit, and when you do the healthy food budget becomes quite manageable. In fact we’re spending the same amount every week on healthy food that we used to do on DNA food. And it’s worth it. It’s so worth it!
The change of lifestyle makes a difference on your daily life. It truly does. Maybe you don’t want to be more productive at work. Maybe you’re stuck in a crappy fast food place all day or something equally dismal. But wouldn’t you at least like to feel better on a daily basis?
Think about it.
But anyway: sour cream.
Well time for me to get back to work. Heavenly Bride and all that. I just spent 2 days updating the code to all of the epubs that go out to Barnes and Nobles, Apple and the like. It’s too bad they aren’t very readable on small devices, I am sad to say… but they looked good on my Nook Color. Sorry guys! But at least things are prettier.
