Making Peace with Doing Dishes!

Posted on August 10, 2016 at 1:25 PM

I admit it ... I hate to empty the dishwasher! I'm not sure why. I just do!



I read an article online about someone who wanted to eat healthier but grumbled that eating real food makes a lot more dishes to wash. Well ... that is true. Eating real food takes effort. You have to think about it, you have to plan, and you have to clean up the kitchen after you are finished. BUT, none of those are reasons to NOT get healthy.


It's not that I mind cleaning up the dirty dishes, it's putting away the clean dishes that causes me to groan and go limp!


Today as I finished eating the delicious fresh vegetables from the garden that required a sauté pan, a spatula, two knives, a cutting board, a strainer to keep the pits out of the fresh squeeze of lemon, and the container where I had prepped the kale and green beans the night before, I finally decided to make peace with the dirty dishes! That food was delicious, nutritious, and my body feels good when I eat like that. I have more energy, my mind is clearer, I poop better, I sleep better, my mood is better, and my body hurts less when I eat clean. Eating real food matters.


So today I invite everyone to choose health. I love the quote on my SERVICE MENU page that says:


"People are fed by the Food Industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the Health Industry, which pays no attention to food."

—Wendell Berry


So ... keep it simple, keep it real, and keep it healthy! Your body will love you for it. The incentive is your health. Seriously ... love yourself enough so that you decide to do it for your health.


Eat in peace, crank up your favorite tunes and dance happily as you clean up your kitchen!
