Hi. I'm Myeisha. I am a highschooler who is passionate about the nutrition and wellness of my fellow Americans. (and everyone else, too!). I like reading blogs, learning new things about the world (languages, culture, food) and helping peple.
My main goal for this blog is to make a change in people's lives. I've really wanted to make a change and/or help people become knowledgable of what they consume and how they live their lives. It's alarming how hidden the food industry's functions are and how fact the organic and natural whole food markets are growing. Obviously people are getting the message.
Just like most bloggers, I wasn't always passionate or I wasn't always the most alert when it came to nutrition and health. I was pretty oblivious before this point and I'm glad I've made it to where I am today. In a middle class family residing in a deflating economy, my family lived on a budget when it came to food. I got the cheapest, most convenient. Sometimes I'd fancy it up with some oven ready frozen meals or stove top, packaged in a sealed box pasta. (maybe the worst things to eat)
Thankfully, I've seen some eye opening things in my time (which is fairly short) and changed myself quickly.
In the future...
I've thought of doing many things... owning different countless businesses, making art, being a fashion designer, a writer, a commercial banker, and most currently, not only a nutritionist but a LIFE CHANGER. Specfically... I don't know. Maybe some type of nutritional advocate. Maybe a politician (I have a fair share of opinions, whether dealing with health or not :]) or a public speaker (need practice on that). I hope to go to college, get a masters or higher, learn as much as possible about what I want to do, finish one or two languages (I'm great in spanish), attend the institute of integrative nutrition online and help people. That's what I'm thinking right now. It might change in five seconds. (jk)
I plan on getting some type of job so I can keep up with the demand of my grocery shopping. It can be cheap, but if you're picky like me or if you want more variety or have a big family, it's going to take more moolah.
In order to keep this physical fitness thing going, I plan on going on some hikes (convenient and close in my area) and joining some aerobic classes at my school. Fun!
Not only have I felt better since my revelation, but it inspired me to help others. I'm seriously tired of looking to my right and left and seeing someone suffer with cancer, diabetes type 2, stress, tiredness, heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity and SO MUCH MORE. I don't even blame us. I blame the curtain that hides the true works of the food industry. Why so greedy? :[
We can change that, though. All we have to do is live a healthy lifestyle. (in my STRONG opinion)
Where can you get more information on having a healthy lifestyle? Without paying for weekly meals that only last for as long as your subscription? Without paying for a program? Without stressing, counting calories, counting sodium counts or drinking skim milk? Without spending HOURS and hours in the gym trying out needless tools that the cavemen would be baffled by?
Here. That's why I made this blog. & All you need to do is crave the nutrition. ^_^
