|Part One of a Special Two-Part Health Issue|
|Let’s face it. Time has not been good to the Baby Boomers.|
The generation that grew up espousing a simple lifestyle has fallen victim to all the things they tried so hard to avoid. Rather than living circumspectly and enjoying all things – especially food – in moderation, they are struggling with a rise of chronic disease at levels unheard of in the nation’s history.
Like Ponce de Leon searching for the Fountain of Youth, many of today’s Georgia Baptists are looking for ways to recapture their health – or at least delay the ravages of advancing age. The good news is that Boomers don’t need to travel to exotic lands to find the Fountain; it is as close as their kitchen and flows abundantly with healthy choices they make at the grocery store or farmer’s market.
And, the real bonus – making the right choices will, in many cases restore their health, extend their ministry, and enrich their retirement years.
The discovery is surprisingly simple as noted writer Michael Pollan says – eat [real] food, not too much, mostly plants. Or to take it a step further, enjoy whole plants, eaten whole.
Ponce de Leon never had it so good.
