Wanted to share a few vids on a subject that tends to get overlooked in todays society, conscious eating. Ran across a few clips of some serious heads in Hip Hop that gave their low down on proper eating and its importance.
For me personally, the first time I thought about what I was putting into my body was when I first got down with Universal Zulu Nation in the mid 90s. With the Infinity lessons I received they had a break down and image of a pig that bugged me out. I was a teenager reading the lessons like damn, pork is NOT the biz. Off the bat I had stopped pork meat in the house and at school. Fam was like you’re trippin, but I had stuck to my guns even when pork was on the table. Mind you, google (there was no google lol) and web access on this info was extremely limited so we took these lessons very seriously. This was a starting point in how I would pay attention to what I would be putting in my body.
At times, I look back on old flicks back in the 90s and today in 2013 and im thankful that I still have the same appearance (with a few grey hairs of course lol) thanks to conscious eating habits and training lifestyle habits I picked up from veterans in Hip Hop that blessed me with solid game throughout the years directly and indirectly. Salute to you all!
