If you didn’t listen to last week’s episode with Sarah and I; listen right before or right after this one! https://www.davidmadow.com/60-achieving-happiness-in-your-life-the-first-step-with-sarah-stanley-2/
PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
“Plastic water bottles are on the top of the list of things that make me cringe!” says Sarah Stanley,”Tap water is safer and cleaner than bottled water!” Sarah recommends and loves Liberty BottleWorks, who sells recycled custom unique aluminum water bottles based out of Washington State. Here is their website: http://www.libertybottles.com/
TAPPED – DOCUMENTARY ABOUT WATER BOTTLES
Sarah highly recommends watching an amazing documentary abuot the bottled water industry called Tapped. “Tapped examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil. The documentary is well structured and presents an overwhelming amount of evidence which will change the way anyone thinks about bottled and municipal water.”
“Both the “manufacture” of the water itself, and also where the bottles come from, where they go after use and how they influence our lives while they’re with us. The willful absence of major companies such as Coke, Pepsi and Nestle is extremely telling in light of all the material presented.
One can only hope that the small voice of this film will be heard over the huge booming commercial machine that these and other companies represent in the popular media. If you haven’t seen this movie, simply watch it. It’s that good and the information is something everyone should know.”
HEALTHY SOIL TO GROW YOUR FOOD
“Our soil is so stripped it is literally dead soil, producing “dead” food, killing people,” says Sarah. Organic farmers don’t use chemicals and pesticides and use natural methods for weeds like pulling them with your hands. “It takes blood, sweat, and tears to toil in the field to produce this healthy nutritious organic food,” says Sarah who talks about her first hand experience working on an organic farm. Organic Farmers take care and nourish the soil and rotate crops appropriately. Organic food is worth every penny of expense vs. the expense of dying and disease. Dr. Dave says, “organic food is the best health insurance!”
GMO – GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS / FOOD
Listen to Sarah and Dave talk about the horrifying negative impact of GMOs on your life and health. 80% of food in a typical grocery store has been modified and not in a good way! Sarah says, “Buy the UGLY FOOD!”; the uglier the better! Organic produce doesn’t look perfect and shouldn’t. Sarah has a lot of content about this topic on her website: http://sarahstanleyinspired.com/ Be sure to check it out!
GET BACK TO NATURAL
“Society is unhappy with this push for things looking “perfect” from food to bodies. Don’t cheat with surgeries and injecting dyes in your foods!” says Sarah. “This is a horrible combination of perfectionism and convenience without thinking of the repercussions on ourselves, society, and the earth!” she says.
Veggies for breakfast = Yes! Veggies for lunch = Yes! Veggies for dinner = Yes! Veggies for snacking = Yes! You need more veggies in your life. You need to start with ADDING fresh organic vegetables to each and every major meal you consume. It may seem weird to have veggies for breakfast, but you absolutely don’t need to stick to the regular/normally know “breakfast foods”.
