The most important thing in our world today

The other day as I was walking around the dog park with Piper and Asia another obvious, yet mind-blowing thought crossed my mind.

Think about it… almost every single thing we do is directly or almost directly because of gravity alone. Shoes? We want a comfortable pair because why? Because gravity is pulling us down and our feet hurt. Sleep? We want a soft or firm mattress based on how gravity is pulling our bodies into the mattress. How much we weigh, gym workouts, running up hills, car fuel consumption, weighted blankets for better sleep, how much almond milk is in a container (if measured in ounces), so much depends on gravity being the same day in and day out.

Can you think of anything in your life that isn’t related to gravity in any way? Comment below and I bet we can somehow related it back to our earth’s amazing magnet.

A Fridge Full of Hipster Food

Thanks to a 48-hour challenge from my friend Nick Shell, I’ve got moldy cheese, expired eggs, a fridge full of hipster food… and I couldn’t be happier about it. If this were 2013 and you offered me almond milk I would’ve said, “Get outta my face!” But how quickly things can change (not “Get outta my face!” that won’t change, don’t you worry. It just won’t be about almond milk). I’m not a newly-minted hipster, either. The next time I visit family in Florida, I won’t bring kale or PBR or a fedora, but I will have a cooler full of spinach, rice, spaghetti, mixed nuts, carrots, hummus, and almond milk. Cutting out dairy altogether seems to have eliminated my allergy symptoms and a quick side note, Nick pointed out that humans are pretty much the only ones to drink milk from a different species. If that doesn’t gross you out, maybe this will.

Yowza. Kingpin was a good movie. The next time you drink milk from a cow, imagine it’s from a bull and POW! You’ll at least be a vegetarian. You’re witnessing the biggest shift in my life and I’m excited to continue the journey! Do you have any stories about your diet and changes you’ve been making? Any advice for a newby healthy eater?
