We have been on the road…
in our RV for ten weeks now. We left Montana the last week of July and headed for Olympia Washington to spend a week with our two grandsons.
We had a great campground to stay at with full hookups! Since four of us were using the bathroom this was important 🙂 Thank goodness they had a pool because we happened to be there the week they set records for heat! Who ever heard of 98 degree weather in Olympia Washington??
We were so fortunate that they did not have a burn ban on and we could have campfires. What is camping without a campfire and s’mores! Yes, this nutritionist indulged in S’mores too!!
Logan is six and Elijah is ten years old. I had two girls and one of my girls had two girls so when the boy’s came along it was a whole new world!
How many of you have children or grandchildren? I now know why we have kids in our twenties and early thirties, because we have more energy to keep up! The amount of energy that kids have is amazing. We would have to drag these boy’s out of the pool after an hour and half of swimming non-stop! They would then consume a snack that really was the equivalent of a meal, then jump on their bikes and ride for another hour, then come back and eat again!
Fortunately all Ed and I had to do was sit in a lawn chair and watch all this energy being dissipated 🙂 I did feel like I never stopped preparing food though. I can’t imagine the grocery bill when these boy’s become teenagers!
This got me thinking about ENERGY…….The human body functions because it produces energy from something called “Mitochondria”. These little guys are the batteries of your body and exist in every cell in your body. We have large amounts of them in big muscles like quadriceps, hearts and brains. When we are young like Logan and Elijah, we have LOT’S of Mitochondria and its very active. That’s where they get all that energy from and why they need so much food fuel.
As you age your Mitochondria begins to lose it’s charge and energy production goes down. This in turn affects your immune system, your detoxification systems, your brain function and your overall energy level for every day tasks.
You use energy for two things.
- To get you out of bed in the morning and get you through your busy day and evening.
- While you sleep you use whatever energy is left over for immune function, cell repair and maintenance, digestion and detoxification.
As you can imagine, as we age we have less and less “leftover energy” after a full day. That means we start to see aging symptoms because we do not have the energy for all these functions to work at an optimal level. So what can we do???
If you have read my blogs over the years you know I’m big on doing a gentle detox at least twice a year. I’m not talking about having to take time off work, juice every day and spend your time in the bathroom 🙂 I’m talking about removing foods and environmental toxins that may be putting an extra burden on your body for thirty days. We can actually “poison” our Mitochondria with poor food and beverage choices, stress, alcohol and pharmaceutical drugs.
A gentle Detox is adding back in foods and beverages that support your bodies energy and detoxification systems and give them a much needed break. I think the best time to do this is in the fall and the spring. As we enter the cold and flu season what better way to build your immune system up as these bugs start showing up, especially if you have school age kids!
I love educating you during this thirty days as well. My goal is to have you become more aware of how you can slow down the aging process from this point forward. I want you to be able to keep up with those kids and grandkids!!!
