The Benefits of Living a Healthy Lifestyle

When I was staying at the funky Dim’s Hostel in Pedesi Panama recently (and if you’re ever down there I can’t recommend it enough for its ambiance and the friendliness of the staff) I spent a pleasant afternoon chatting with  a Panamanian lady who had lived in the States for many years. She lives a very healthy life style eating lots of fruits and veggies. I don’t know whether or not she’s strictly vegetarian or not but I half-jokingly told her that while I did enjoy good fresh fruits and veggies like you get in Panama I also really enjoy a thick slab of dead cow leaving a bit of blood on my plate. And I do.

There’s a couple of sayings I love:

You can’t take life too seriously because nobody’s getting out alive…

Stop smoking, exercise, eat right, DIE ANYWAY. If eating an occasional slab of bleeding dead cow means I’m going to kick off a few years earlier than if  ate twigs and bark I’ll settle for the cow…
