Good Digestion

June 1, 2018 Newsletter



Heartiness Approach Newsletter – June 1, 2018 – Thank your for joining us.

Good health requires good digestion.

The digestive system goes from the mouth to the anus. It is one continuous tube with pockets, inlets, and outlets. Everything we put in our mouth should have a purpose. It needs to either provides energy, help us grown, and/or repair our tissues, organs and glands. Some food is no good for our body, so it will just add to the fat cells, add plaque to the arteries, and other negative issues.

We are what we eat. The Mouth is the start of the digestive system. Your most important task here is to chew your food properly so it becomes mush. We do not want to swallow chunks.

Enjoying Our Homestead

I look out the window and in the dusk of the evening I watch Jim as he talks with a friend in the front yard. Building community is an important part of homesteading. Not going it alone. As we have been on our homestead a month now and we are truly finished traveling everywhere, we find peace in the little things. Sitting on the porch, listening to the birds, watching the grass grow and the trees sway. Walking hand in hand down the lane, through the country, causes reflection and gratitude.

Homesteading requires hard labor and gives thrilling satisfaction. Our friend, Austin, helped dig holes for our tomato pergola. Amazing.

We pace ourselves. There are sore muscles and hot baths. There is overwhelming lack of knowledge of what to do when and with what. But this is our life and we love it. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to struggle through design problems, figure out how to pay for a project, and how to get the animals we want on our farm. All of these are opportunities of growth. Joy in the journey and this journey is amazing.

All meals and snacks consist of the following:

A Real Carbohydrate
A Good Protein
A Correct Fat
A Non-starchy Vegetables

Don’t beat yourself up if you do not have a vegetable to eat with a snack, but get used to it being important. Even if we go to a restaurant we ask for sliced tomatoes or carrots to go along with our breakfast.

Vegetables slow down digestion and help food process better PLUS add fiber.
