Article11_Decide to Live HealthierBy Vic and Avelynn Garcia

Let me discuss another tip on how to manage our finances well – that is, we decided to live healthier and wealthier.

Isa sa mga pangarap naming mag-asawa sa buhay ay ang mabuhay nang malusog at masagana. My wife and I wanted to live longer, healthier and wealthier. Ang target namin, if God will allow us, is to live up to age 100. Healthy na, wealthy pa. Dapat, walang isa doon ang mawawala. Halimbawa, nabuhay ka nga ng 100 years dahil mayaman ka. Kung at age 60 ay nagkasakit ka, your remaining 40 years ay nasa ICU ka naman. Patay ka na by age 100.  Gusto namin, mayaman na, malusog pa; dahil marami pa kaming gustong gawin sa buhay. And for us to live up to that age, marami kaming dapat isakripisyo.  Isa nga sa itinuturo namin sa Unleash ay “Sometimes you need to do something you hate to have something you love”.

We will share with you ang mga bagay na dati naming kinakain, pero ngayon ay hindi na dahil gusto naming mabuhay ng mahaba at malusog.

To live healthier, we need to eat the right kind of food. Instead of eating white rice, we eat brown rice. Kami sa bahay ay kumakain ng brown rice dahil mas maraming vitamins, minerals at fiber ang brown rice. Let’s talk about sugar. Ang sugar namin sa bahay ay hindi puti. Ang sugar namin sa bahay ay… blue. (Joke lang.) Ang sugar namin sa bahay ay brown o muscovado. Mas mahal ito kaysa regular white sugar, pero mailalayo kayo nito sa maraming sakit. Another healthy option is to use honey.

To live healthier, we need to eat the right kind of food.

Ang isa sa pinakamahirap na sakripisyo namin sa buhay ay ang hindi na pagkain ng baboy….. na hilaw, kailangan iluto muna. (Joke only.)  Seriously, mahigit sampung taon nang hindi kumakain ng karneng baboy ang aming pamilya. Nagsimula ang lahat ng ito nang maka-attend kaming mag-asawa ng isang seminar about wellness. Ang nagtuturo ng araw na iyon ay isang doctor at isa sa kanyang mga topics ay ang iba’t ibang dahilan kung bakit dapat tayong huminto sa pagkain ng karneng baboy.

Sa simula ng lecture, ang sabi ko sa sarili ko, “Malabo ito. Hindi ako pwedeng huminto sa pagkain ng baboy, dahil paborito ko ang baboy.”  (Litson, inihaw na liempo, sinigang sa sampalok o sa bayabas, adobong baboy, bacon, ham, tocino, longganisa at maraming pang iba). Isa pang dahilan ay pinalaki ako at pinag-aral ng baboy. Isa sa mga negosyo ng aking mga magulang ay piggery. Marami sa aming panggastos sa pag-aaral ay nanggaling sa pag-aalaga ng baboy ng aking mga magulang. Pero habang nakikinig ako sa doctor na nagtuturo, unti-unti akong nakumbinsi na huwag nang kumain ng baboy. Allow us to share with you ang mga bagay na nalaman ko patungkol sa baboy.

Next week, we will discuss the reasons for not eating pork.
