Eat Right

It's been 3 years since my mother passed. Actually, at the time I'm writing this, it's just a few weeks since she passed, I just set this one to post way out in the future. The goal was to say nothing but positive about her for 3 years. Keeping positive is important in life. However, my mother was a flawed individual, too - as we all are.

This post, and others like it in the future, will detail some of those flaws. Not for the purpose of being mean, but for the purpose of helping others. Every major flaw she had can be fixed, and so many people don't know how to fix their flaws. Other people just refuse to do anything about their flaws, but these folks cannot be helped until they decide to do something about it.

Among my mother's greatest flaws was her health. This led, naturally, to other flaws. However, if you fix the root cause, you can often fix all (or at least most) of the symptoms.

So I shall lead with this one: she used to tell us to try to eat vegetarian. Now we know that it is not possible to obtain all the nutrients one needs from vegetables only, but she felt the Bible taught this. This is simply not the case.

Her death was caused by a heart attack brought on by chronically high blood sugar. This is caused primarily by eating a diet of grains. She was also not taking her diabetic medicine. Leading up to her death, she had eaten grains at virtually every meal for over a month.

So, lesson #1 - don't eat grains. Don't eat vegetarian. 

PS - some of these stories will have very humorous content. Others will have very sad things in them. But we shall always learn from them.
