Recovering Carnivore Step #4 – Say No to the Pillbox

Step #4:

We have made a searching and fearless inventory of our general health and realized that it is complete shit. SAY NO TO THE PILL BOX.

This is a 12-part series delving deep into each one of these steps.

“Say no to the pillbox” is becoming one of my favorite phrases. It is my mantra, my call to arms, my power-phrase. It’s what I say when I am frustrated with my food choices and need to get back on track. If I were to give a Braveheart-esque speech, this would be how I would finish it.

Before I get too carried away with this… You all do know what a pillbox is, right? It is that rectangular box with the different compartments with the days of the week written on them.

Say No to the Pillbox!!

You might have one, your parents might have one, your grandma, sister, neighbor, etc might have one. The point is, these boxes are a growing trend in American health care. And that scares the hell out of me.

Think about it… every morning when you get up, having to go over to the pillbox and pull out your meds. All the insurance co-pays and trips to the pharmacy for refills. I can’t even begin to imagine how much money in pill form that little box sees over its lifetime. And to think—it’s all because of the foods you choose to eat that the pillbox is even in your life.

Making a decision to adopt a plant-based diet for me is a long-term decision. I hope to never get to that point in my life where I become slave to the pillbox and it’s contents within. It has never been more clear to me that veganism + exercise = a long and healthy life.

Say no to the pillbox and say yes to life!
