I am a young mom who was working a career that caused me to feel run down physically and mentally. A few medical problems later, I decided it was time to make a change for the better. I resigned from my position, became a stay at home mom and started incorporating a lot more fruits and veggies. I cut out all processed foods and typically eat about 80% fresh, whole living foods a day, but that doesn't mean I do not eat lovely cooked foods! Being a mother of a toddler I am always looking for fun ways to incorporate veggies, fruits and grains into my little one’s meals. I look forward to posting child-friendly meals that are easy to prep and fun children's projects revolving around gardening, veggies and taking care of the earth.
As for the benefits of eating this way, physically I have more energy, my skin has cleared up, my hair feels softer and I am rarely catching the typical cold/flu bugs. Eating a more plant based diet with an exercise plan has also helped me lose 48lbs. Mentally, I feel more focused, my moods tend to be more positive; I laugh a lot more and appreciate life's moments. There is more I want to improve and care for regardng my mind, body and spirit. Your welcome to follow my journey.
