Daily Thought
Adversity is Opportunity
Many times we face challenges in our lives and we tend to look at them negatively. Why me? The struggles consume us and we withdraw from things to avoid the pain. If we can look at these challenges differently we can use them to build ourselves into who we want to be. When confronted with adversity we have two choices: we can shrink back into ourselves and try to avoid the pain or we can dig in and fight back and face the challenge head on and work to overcome it. Whichever path you choose it will define you, who do you want to be? How will you react when things get hard? Adversity is present in everyone’s life, how you choose to view it and react to it will be the difference in your life. Take the opportunity that adversity presents to up your game and become stronger by it.

Food Rules Tip: Cook for Yourself
In theory, it should make little difference to your health whether you cook for yourself or let someone else do the work. But unless you can afford to hire a private chef to prepare meals exactly to your specifications, letting other people cook for you means losing control over your eating life, the portions as much as the ingredients. Cooking for yourself is the only sure way to take back control of your diet from the food scientists and food processors, and to guarantee you’re eating real food and not edible food like substances, with their unhealthy oils, high-fructose corn syrup, and salt. Not surprisingly, the decline in home cooking closely parallels the rise in obesity, and research suggests that people who cook are more likely to eat a more healthful diet.
