Something to think about as Thanksgiving and the holidays are upon us.
The struggle for life is ever-present above and below the sea. Besides having affordable and safe housing, people deserve healthy food to eat. The problem is in todays world of convenience and fast food it is hard to make good decisions all the time.
Eat or be eaten
At least, we don’t have to dive into bait balls amongst sharks for dinner as we have supermarkets to purchase our food. But we do have a choice. Each of us has a choice to eat food that is organic, non- GMO, natural and that has not been processed or altered. Or, they can go the other way and select foods that have been processed, contain high fructose corn syrup, natural sugar, artificial sugar, fat, non-fat, artificial sugar, msg, and the list goes on.
What we eat has a direct impact on how we feel and on our environment. Smart choices help our bodies thrive and leave a gentle footprint on your body and the planet. Unhealthy choices lead to polluting your body and our environment.
These days more an more people are taking responsibility for their food. Many people are growing their own organic food, or to sell to the public in small farmer markets, or serve in local restaurants.

With diabetes and heart disease ever-present in our world wide communities, choosing the right food has never been more important. Limiting sugars, fast food, soda, and processed foods are great ways to live healthier.
Food for thought this holiday season. Live Pono everyone.
