Life has been quite busy for me, but our life style has remained unchanged. We are living in an area where it is necessary to filter our water. We are using shower filters purchased through mercola.com, which removes the risk of absorbing ground water contaminants as well as chlorine. We also installed a reverse osmosis water system (gifted to us by a generous family member) under the kitchen sink so that we can have pure drinking water. I use the water from the RO system for drinking, washing vegetables, cooking and making almond milk. I try to draw off a gallon at a time and add some unrefined sea salt to it in order to restore some trace minerals back into the water.
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to interact with people on a social level and still maintain the healthy changes we have incorporated in our lives. Ethnic restaurants have been the best places to find healthy side dishes to order - baked white or sweet potato, pasta, beans and rice with vegetables, and of course green salads are offered just about anywhere.
Here is a link to a really good video that encouraged me today. If you can't watch the video, just click the "view transcript" button and read. Good stuff.
