Yes, it’s 9/11 again…and my son is still in Afghanistan. He has been to Afghanistan & Iraq to many times to keep track of.

Anyways a couple nights ago at work…after watching people come into my cafeteria, I came to the realization that the most crabby & unhealthy looking people were the same people who wanted extra bread with EVERYTHING. Even if bread wasn’t included with what they ordered…like they “needed” 2 rolls with soup…usually soup don’t come with any bread”. If they ordered Chili in a bread bowl they would ask for extra rolls or grab a handful of crackers to go with the chili. Last night we had a family come in with 3 kids and 2 of the kids were running all around and yelling…and yes they had to have extra bread too.

Now when ever we get guests come in with a gluten allergy, they are usually slimmer, have more patience, and are more healthy looking. Now this all had me thinking…does wheat really make that much of a difference??  What could be in wheat to make this difference? I don’t have an answer for that but I am really starting to think twice about what type of foods I order at work.

I’m in the process of re-organizing the pages I like on facebook (boy is that gonna take awhile) but I found alot of new pages about health stuff. Yes I know getting my healthier is more then just ‘liking’ pages on facebook. If I can talk the talk, then I need to walk the walk…so to speak.

Hey if my son can spend many years in a war zone defending people’s rights and/or trying to make sure everyone has a few freedoms…then the least I can do is make sure that I live my life the best way I can. Otherwise what does that say about his efforts?
