I sell hot dogs and I eat hot dogs. I also do all my grocery shopping at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Outpost Foods in Milwaukee. I began eating organic in 1990. 90% of the food I eat is organic. I prefer the taste of organic produce, meat, pork, and chicken. I eat no fried foods. I eat nothing with additives, preservatives, partially hydrogenated, no trans fats, or anything with cotton seed. I don’t drink milk. I drink almond milk. I drink no diet sodas or eat anything with artificial sweeteners. I use pure honey and agave nectar as a sweetener. I drink steam distilled water and tea. I’ll be 60 in September and was only in a hospital once, the day I was born. I take no medications. I’m rarely sick and if so, it’s for 24 hours or less. I’m over weight, I’m physically active, and I’m healthy. This isn’t a sermon about organic food, it’s about what I eat. When at a restaurant, I eat what’s on the menu. I eat no fast food, except when taking Roadfood tours. My significant other changed my eating habits and I thank her for it every day. On Saturday’s, when selling hot dogs, I eat a Polish. I don’t claim to be Polly Pure. Organic foods have improved my health and immune system. Is it a rip-off? Not for me. I’m willing to pay the price to stay healthy and this is what works for me.
Stay healthy and be well.
