After years of my contemplating and ignoring the itch to do so, here I am writing my very first blog post. As my close friends and family know I have always wanted to bring writing back into my life in some way. Though I’m sure most people would agree, life is hectic and things get in the way.
I’m a hair-stylist in her early thirties whom works 40 hours a week. I am not a mother, nor do I have a job with deadlines or work that keeps me up at night. All careers have high stress in their own way yes, but there is no reason I should be putting something off like this that I have been longing do to. Life has all sorts of ways of getting in the way right? Careers, friends, appointments, cleaning, folding, family, coffee, bridal showers, baby showers, paperwork… Always a reason we cannot take care of ourselves. It can be overwhelming.
Let’s rewind a couple of months. I was recently married and after that I finally got to decompress somewhat and things in my life slowed down. Work is good, home life is happy, family is well. It was time to focus on me a little more. I have been “organic conscious” for years, keeping chemical free products in our home and shopping organic for most all our groceries. In more recent months my husband and I have taken it a step further eliminating sugars, dairy, gluten, GMOs & most animal proteins from our diets. Eating as clean as possible has improved my health, mental state and body image. Drum roll please……….
I finally had something to write my blog about. Something I feel passionate about and want to share. Trying to live your life free of toxins is liberating but also comes with many challenges. That’s why I am here to discuss these challenges, give ideas, give recipes, and talk about some life truths. I believe in the 80/20 rule as well. We have to be realistic and live our lives healthy but not deprived either. So please join me on my journey and I promise to help you live your most tasty and true life!
Stay tasty and true,
