The 2014 book club left me new recipes, new ideas, new friends, and the same old love for teaching. I wanted to take a moment to share the things I will continue to use from book club….
- I learned that I love grassfed butter with lemon on my sweet potatoes. This is addicting! Try it!
- I learned that I like grape leaves.
- I learned that many of the most simple dishes are the most delish.
- I learned that no matter how many foods I’ve eaten in my life, there will always be new stuff to try.
I also wanted to share my favorite quote/concept from the last meeting:
Shirley: “Dr. A, you are lucky for learning all of this info so young!”
Dr. A: “It’s so true! I am!”
Laura: “I didn’t know it when I was young, but I see it as a gift to my kids that I know it now.”
I went home after the meeting and thought about this a lot. It’s so true. It’s never too late for someone to make lifestyle changes for the better. Heck, I’ve worked with elderly people to get them off their meds successfully! However, there is no better reason to learn and make changes than to be that example for the future generations. No one pays attention to what you do more than your children. They will follow your lead. Are you leading them down the path that you would love for them to take?
This is the single reason that someone should think about joining the 2015 book club. Not only will you learn important concepts that will change your world, you can do it in a fun, approachable way.
Knowledge is power.
