A Different View On Labels


One night, I went to the grocery store after noticing my refrigerator was short on food. Most of the food was eaten while the rest were thrown away. Ever since I've been following the advice of Alkaline Guru and Eden on Earth, my whole perspective on what I eat has changed dramatically. I've been going for healthier directions and thinking about what might happen to my body long term.

Some of the products that I used to purchase and/or eat  has been removed from my life completely. Now I've made it my life's goal to go for a more healthier direction.

I walked inside, entered an aisle, and found myself in a difficult compromise. I was looking at the shelf observing brand after brand. Label after label. My mind then became clear on what was going on. I was having a physical realization regarding the difficulty of finding healthier brands.

Ever since I've been reading pieces from the social media pages of Alkaline Guru and Eden on Earth, I began pointing fingers and telling myself in my mind that such and such brand was GMO (genetically modified organisms). Once the finger pointing stopped, it was hard to find the brands that was healthy for me and my body. It was such a scary thing to see, but the truth was right in front of me. I was incredibly indecisive on what I wanted to buy due to knowing the truth about the brands on the shelf.

I slowly took a third browse and finally found the right brands for me. My basket was a little smaller than I expected, but I knew it was for the best.

I'm thankful for the stuff I've learned through Alkaline Guru and Eden on Earth. With Alkaline Guru's realization on food to Eden on Earth healthier direction pieces, I've slowly began the process of changing the way I operate in regards to the food I eat. There are more tales to tell and I'm happy to be a part of the ride.

Read the labels carefully. The truth is right in front of you.
