I Am Eating Better, And Feeling Better For It.
(Dover, NH) – I have to admit, the older I get, the more changes I have made to my daily diet. And in truth, I feel better than I have in a long time!
I have done morning radio for my entire adult life, and for a long time I lived on coffee, donuts and, for many years, cigarettes as the staples of my morning diet.
I quit smoking in 1982, but the coffee and donuts remained. In fact, for a while I was eating a half-dozen donuts a day after I kicked the cigarette habit! My weight has never been an issue. I have not fluctuated more than 7 pounds up or down in the past 40 years!
My adult daughters are more health conscious than I ever was, and it has obviously rubbed off on me.
My morning starts with a shake made up of coffee, protein powder, brewers yeast and coconut oil. It gives me that pick-me-up I need at 4 each morning.
While I do occasionally succumb to temptation and eat a Dunkin Munchkin or two when they appear in the station cafeteria, my snack drawer is now filled with Organic Granola, Prairie Raised Buffalo Bites, Unsalted Cashews, and Non-GMO Peanut Butter spread on a multi-grain toast. I keep a weeks supply of Yogurt in my office fridge. I do need to add more fruit to my diet (not a fruit fan!).
Regular exercise and a round or two (three!) of golf each week should keep me going for another 35 years or so. I hope by then 100 will be the new 60.
