“I have often wondered how people maintain health in this environment without making it a full-time occupation.” Tom Greenfield, May 26 article.
I enjoyed reading Tom Greenfied’s Nature Cure article today, and he expressed some of what I’ve been thinking about lately when it comes to my health. It really does take a lot of work to be healthy today. Yet, it beats the alternative, being an unhealthy couch potato. In fact, once you start down the healthy path, it enables you to go further and further in the right direction. The extra energy, improved outlook, better sleep, all combine to give you more resources to do everything you need to do and to do what it takes to become healthier.
I can’t say that I never complain about it though. It would be nice to just be healthy without thinking about it or going to any extra effort. Yet there is joy in the journey, in discovering that you have more control over your body than you imagined, in finding that you have more potential than you dreamed.
That being said, here’s a nice, simple recipe for eggs:
Slice the boiled eggs lengthwise, leave the yolks in place. Drizzle some lemon juice over the yolks, then sprinkle with curry powder (or red pepper powder), add fresh parsley if you have some. Done! Tastes great, it’s easy, and it’s nonnie-compliant! You won’t miss the mayo.
