Today, I want to take a moment to share with you what my partner and mother is doing to help me get through some of the most difficult times in life. The following story has been inspired by a photograph from an Instagram post that featured a bottle of milk. In summary, it’s about how something so simple can be used to improve health, well-being, relationships, mental health, etc.

One day, we were sitting at our kitchen table talking. She was telling me about her morning routine and how she had done a little bit of extra stretching today. We both nodded along in agreement. Then she said something else about stretching every day, but never to excess. I didn’t quite understand it, but I figured this might have been for my benefit. So, I went on with what I wanted to say. When I finished, I asked her if she’d like another glass of water.

“No, thank you,” she replied. “I don’t drink.”

Me? Why not? But that would mean I wasn’t drinking enough. My body was already feeling dehydrated and I wasn’t getting enough fluid.

She explained that as a child, when she and I had no access to food or shelter, we were constantly moving around and eating whatever was edible to survive on. This meant she needed more calories than usual. Eventually, she learned to replace what was eaten with what was kept in the pantry for easy access. And that meant substituting whole foods for those less available options. Her practice has since become so ingrained into her daily routine that it’s taken for granted. She doesn’t eat fruit or vegetables because they’re “expensive” but because they are “unavailable.”

Today, when I look back, I realize that when I first saw this photo, I thought it was funny. It made sense to me now. That bottle of milk is literally just a small amount of good-quality, healthy fat. And yet it has the power to make my day better than ever.

The way we process a meal and what we drink, eat, and think are different things. If you can put away a few spoonful’s of processed sugar for each meal and replace with nutrient-dense whole foods, it will really do wonders for your health. But that might be easier said than done. There’s also a lot of conflicting information out there — especially when it comes to nutrition and weight loss. Some people believe that certain foods cause weight gain, while others insist that eating too much of them is bad for their bodies. I’m here with all those who want to know what’s true and what’s not.

In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) claims that Americans consume roughly half of their daily recommended intake of fruits and vegetables, according to a 2016 report. Meanwhile, the USDA says Americans consume only 10% of what should be consumed. However, we have a choice between eating a low-fat, high-fat diet, which may lead to long-term health issues such as heart disease and diabetes, or consuming a diet that consists mostly of unprocessed, highly nutritious ingredients. As someone who is currently trying to lose weight, I would recommend making sure you eat plenty of plant-based, whole food meals.

But this is where I come up short. Although I am a vegan, I still love bacon and eggs. These two foods, however, are very costly to purchase. Not just in terms of grocery bills, but also in terms of convenience. They require preparation and assembly, which is not always cost-effective. Plus, even though I use these products sparingly, they’re still associated with negative stereotypes about diets that are restrictive, restrictive, or fad diets. I can only speak for myself when I say that being able to buy and prepare a delicious meal at home can be incredibly beneficial.

As for our conversation about whether or not to drink, I found myself thinking about how much money I’d need to spend to get a decent night’s sleep. At the time, I spent $50 a month for one night, so I could cover food and gas for an entire week. Now, I’m down to spending a mere $100 per month — a savings of over 60%. With reduced expenses, I have more money to save, which means I’m able to travel more frequently, pay off debt, and enjoy other aspects of my life, such as hobbies and entertainment without having to worry about filling up or running out of food.

I also started a weekly blog called Good Mood For Life. It’s dedicated to helping others find happiness and peace in everyday moments. Even if that means going against the grain, I’m happy to offer a place to help others navigate life’s challenges. Whether you’re looking to learn more about yourself or connect with others in similar situations, I hope that reading this article will help you see what you can do to make your life better!

  1. This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
