Hi and welcome!
I’m George; a little about me and why I’m writing this blog. I’m seventy-five years young; my passion is to pass on what I learned about food good or bad, my blog is for the young and the young at heart, and I’m on a journey of wellness.
My wellness journey began when I was thirty-two, in my last year of high school I enlisted into the army as a teen, and returned home three years later a man. I moved out of my mother’s house and began preparing my food which consisted of fast foods and TV dinners. I did not know what I was doing to my body. At the age of thirty-one, I think my body was saying that’s enough of the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) you must stop it are I will quit on you. Physically at that time, I was not doing well, so I went to numerous physicians to find out what was wrong, and I got the same answers from each, which was you are okay, I did not find anything. After the last doctor diagnosis, it appeared I was getting a little better, but I knew something was still not right.
A year later I was not able to get out of bed. For two hours I was so weak physically, and as I lie there thinking what’s happening to me, my TV came on, a lady was talking, and it seemed as if she was talking to me, what she was describing was what I had experienced. She went on to say I am in the store today come in for a consultation. The lady’s name was Gladys Lindberg; she was a nutritionist, she prescribed vitamins supplements, herbs, and told me to change my diet. I did what she said, and became completely healed in one month, that was the turning point in my life, and that was when my wellness journey began, and I believe that I am in pretty good shape for my age group.
I now have a lifelong commitment to learning what to eat and what not to eat. So my blog, “Ymmyum”; is much more than a food blog with food and recipes, It will cover that, but it will also include many issues, issues like eating habits past, present, and future. Also, natural remedies using food, food trivia, food news, second-hand food, junk food, food modifications, experimental food, and much much more.
I’m not a doctor, food scientist, food technologist, farmer, nutritionist, herbalist, a healer, nor do I work for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA or USFDA). I am a person that received help early in my journey of wellness, and I have a burning desire to help others.
My passion is to encourage others to eat healthy by knowing what is going into their bodies and take time to read food labels. People need to take charge of their lives, we are living longer today, so why not live healthier.
My goal is to impart information that will permit people to make better choices in what, and how they eat, so that they can enjoy their life without pain, sincerely yours, George.
