Eating healthy can be a lot of work. I have been on a pretty healthy diet since May.
I watched Food Inc. It was a very well done documentary and I am glad I am aware of what I am putting into my body. I try to eat organic whenever I can. I drink almond milk, eat lots of yogurt, I'm loving the Chobani Greek yogurt its very high in protein (14 grams) and I love my cheeses. I try to eat a ton of fruits, veggies and grains.
I try to stay away from high fructose corn syrup and processed foods. Key word is try here it is very hard!
My friend Mike Norseth is joining Team Boomer for this years New York marathon... He is raising money for CF while training for the BIG day.
Below are his thoughts...
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Don’t write a check you can’t (or don’t want to) cash?" I think I did that when I got BOOMERANGED and agreed to participate in the NYC Marathon for TEAM BOOMER!
Having talked a big game to Boomer Esiason about being willing to do whatever it takes to help him and the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) in their fight to find a cure for CF, it’s now time to back it up. (Note, backing him up on the football field was much easier; I only had to pass out water and slap teammate’s asses. I kind of miss that!) I am joining more than 100 other athletes who are running the marathon for Team Boomer, a BEF program that makes a difference very day in the life of people with CF.

I try to live each day to the fullest by keeping my hopes high, and dreams big!! I think it is important to LOVE as long as you LIVE, and LAUGH as much as you BREATHE!! I am a 38 year old living with Cystic Fibrosis, and an active advocate in the CF community. I make it a priority to raise awareness and help educate everyone on CF. Being diagnosed at 11 months old I was unable to make my own decisions. However, I am fortunate enough to have fabulous parents who chose to help fight my disease. When I was old enough I adopted my parents philosophy and joined the fight. This is my fight.....
