The Animal Protection League of New Jersey (APLNJ) has sent out an invitation to those who have yet to make a lifestyle change for the better. We're talking meatless diet that is surely to improve your health and say NO to animal cruelty at the same time. This is a free presentation by Food For Life, a community health outreach program, to be held at Organic Style, 621 Cookman avenue, Asbury Park, New Jersey 07712. Time and date are October 27, 2009 at 7pm. They will discuss the four food groups : fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Yum, that made me crave for some. You can learn about their nutritional value and health benefits plus mouth-watering recipes. Food-tasting will top the evening off like the cherry on other people's sundae. Please call Nancy Ehrlich at 732-775-1051 for reservations. Space is limited.
If there is something I can kick myself in the rear for, that would be for being tardy in making this dietary change. I am only on my third year of a meatless lifestyle, but my weight has lessened and my blood tests have become much better than before. It's like coming face to face with yourself about your past and asking, " Why did I do that to you? Why did I not realize that I was feeding you life-shortening garbage? " There is so much good food out there and there isn't anyone stopping you from having them. What's the point about sticking with hamburgers, steaks, meatballs, beef stews, pork loins, and hotdogs? As I have asked so many times before, why eat the body parts of dead animals? Go Vegetarian.
