NO SUGAR CHALLENGE

The first month saw intense determination and motivation, with gym memberships increasing and leafy greens flying off grocery store shelves. The overachievers participated in Whole 30s and Dry January. But now what? How do we keep ourselves on track and stick to the good habits we’ve cultivated at the start of 2018? Hurdles on the horizon, like Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day, remind us that indulgent consumption is a national norm. Pleasure is our pursuit. Sugar is our love language.

Regeneration: A New Breath

Regeneration: A New Breath

WRITTEN BY

MICHAEL REILLY

Just as yoga connects the mind to the body, regenerative food connects the soil to the gut. Soil is alive. Literally. A tablespoon of healthy soil contains billions of microorganisms that make plant and animal life on this earth flourish. It’s a balanced ecology that mirrors life in a healthy human gut, where billions of microbes direct a majority of the physiological functions in the body. These functions include the regeneration of new cells and tissue that takes place constantly throughout every day of our lives.

Additionally, 83% of drinking water samples in a 2017 study from around the world contained microplastics. In the US, over 94% of the drinking water samples contained plastics (these include congressional buildings among many other politically significant establishments). Over 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in the oceans every year. Plastics have also been found in beer, rainwater, the air, bottled water, honey, and sugar. It is said that by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. While that fact is startling, there is still time to make a change. Reducing consumption and use of plastic in your daily life can make a massive difference.

Becoming aware of the situations is the first step to this change, and now that we can see the truth, we can more wisely make decisions to foster the recovery of our planet.

On Learning

It has not been easy arriving here. At times I still doubt if I have made the right decisions. However, without fail, every time that I have allowed doubt to creep in, a wonderfully fresh opportunity has presented itself at my feet. All I have to do is will myself to be vulnerable. To revel in the beauty that I do not yet know everything this world has to offer, and that hopefully I never will.

Change Our Food!

Change Our Food!

WRITTEN BY

MICHAEL REILLY

The general message in the book… and the message I read from other experts every single day… and the message I fear is overlooked by the Paris Agreement, and climate change activists in general, is that food matters… above all else.
