The Adams County Record Nutrition And You The best way to get vitamins and minerals into your body is through the foods you eat. Choosing "man- made" foods, foods that are packaged, such as noodle cups, macaroni and cheese, etc. although "cheap" do not give your body the nutrients it needs to function well and eventually will lead to chronic diseases. These processed foods are packed with preservatives, dyes, salt, sugar and little to no vitamins or minerals. Eating these foods may make you feel full for a while, but since these foods contain empty calories, you will feel hungry again very soon. When your body is fed foods packed with vitamins and minerals, it will have what it needs to function well and you will not feel hungry all the time. You'll also consume less food because you won't need Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Well, Live V00r,;ll Part I Page 11 By Linda Taylor, Nutritionist, ACHC to eat so much to feel satisfied. I hear from a lot of people that fresh, raw foods are too expensive and too time consuming to prepare. But are they really too expensive? Does it really take too much time investing an hour or two a day to prepare quality foods for yourself and your family? Eating raw foods is the best medical insurance a person can buy. Research has demonstrated time and again that what we feed our bodies can prevent and reverse many chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol (both will lead to heart attack and stroke) and type two diabetes. Since the 1970s when "fast food" boomed, the increase in these chronic diseases has sky rocketed, as well as obesity in both adults and children. Today, in our country, 17% of children aged 2 to 19 are obese. That is one in six Children. This is very serious folks. We are seeing children with chronic diseases that 20 years ago we saw only in the old. No 15-year-old should have arthritis! No two-year-. old should have type 2 diabetes! These diseases are expensive! These diseases drastically reduce one's quality of life as well, and can be prevented with good nutrition. Disease is much more expensive than purchasing and preparing fresh, raw foods. Once you experience a month of eating good quality, nutritionally balanced meals you will feel better and be on the road to chronic health rather dsease. Next week I'll discuss some time saving strategies for eating well! Bon Appetit! Cambridge Senior Chatter Tired of Retirement? It's hard to believe that today is the last day of April; it was just yesterday that we celebrated Valentines Day wasn't it? Time is moving so much faster for me now than when I was in my 30's and 40's; I on the other hand, am not. I think science has made great strides in extending our time on this earth, and some of us it seems would like to believe that we are as good physically and mentally as we ever were, but my observations tell me otherwise. Oh I think I have moments of the brilliance and passion I had when younger, but not the all-consuming drive to produce at the expense of everything else in life, which, as we age, is a good thing. Maybe it's the beginning of wisdom? I'm glad that I don't live in a big city and still work at this stage of my life. In fact it was one of my motivations to move to New Mexico and subsequently here. I wanted to find a place where I could age gracefully and still contribute in some small way. Age discrimination exists in the working world, especially in big cities and corporations, but not so much in a small rural communities. Here one can find meaningful work no matter how old you are, as long as you have the desire. I look at individuals, such as John and Shirley Atteberry, Patty Heldt, Paul Radasch, Jennifer Neider and many others whose names escape me at the moment that are working and contributing to their communities when they could be "retired." But they have the desire to make a change, or to leave a legacy that can be appreciated for years to come. If you are a senior who is "tired" of retirement, I suggest that you too can find ways of contributing to the quality of your community, all it takes is a little "desireY I have no idea what got Pastor's Corner The Sting of Death by Les Sheneberger Have you ever been stung by a bee? One of my earliest memories s getting stung on my driveway on my tricycle as I investigated the tetherball hole on our front driveway. Now as I see the fear on my daughter's face as she walks by our flower garden full Of bee pollinating activity, I try to reassure her that they are doing the job God created them to do. Yet I know they can also be dangerous if irritated. A sting hurts us, but it is a death'sentence to the bee. Along with the stinger, the bee leaves behind' part of its abdominal tract, muscles and nerves; this is too great a loss for the bee. "The question is asked in Scripture in 1 Corinthians 15: "Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" If you had to respond to that question, what would you say? That death comes to all people? That nobody can escape its grip? That the only sure things in life are death and takes? That it always hurts when someone dies? Thankfully, we are not left waiting long for an answer: "Death has been swallowed up in victory... The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" What really stings about dying is our sin condition. God's law reveals our sin and ultimately condemns us to an eternal separation from God. That is truly a frightening proposition. Yet we have been given the gift of grace in God's Son and can say thanks to Him and accept that gift. What does it say he gives us? He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus faced the sting of death head on while suffering on the cross. Yet, his resurrection from death to life took the sting out of death. For those who call Him Lord (meaning those who submit their lives to His control), Jesus offers victory and eternal life. Will you continue living in fear of the sting Of death? Or will you trust in Jesus, whose victory has removed the singer and swallowed up death?
