Our family has been on a journey of learning how to eat more healthy for the past 5 years, ever since we got married Chris and I have been trying to figure out how to eat right. We’ve made some great progress, we feel, in that journey already. We mostly eat whole grain foods, make most of our own breads, no white flour or sugar, eating more fruits and veggies every day. So yesterday when I was given some money for my birthday I decided to look at a book store for a book on Detox. I found one that looked good, it’s called “The Raw Food Detox Diet” by Natalia Rose. I’ve started reading it already and am pleased with what I have read so far. It’s easy to understand, not too long, has great simple recipes that will be easy to adapt to our style of living/eating, gives really easy steps for anyone to follow. I’m just really impressed and feel very hopeful. Do we plan to go 100% raw foodists? No, nor do we plan to become vegetarians or vegans. We enjoy all those foods too much to face the thought of never eating cooked food/meat again. We do plan to change a lot about the way we eat, and for the first time I really feel like I have been handed a really simple tool to help us achive those goals. I’m excited about what this means for us as a family. It’s a journey, a lifelong journey I believe, of discovering what it truly means to be a faithful steward of this body, this “temple” the Lord has blessed us with. Should be fun to report the things we learn along the way, the struggles and the victories. Now I’m off to find some needed sleep after a long but fun birthday weekend, my family blessed me with a fun shopping day with my husband yesterday. I was able to purchase a few fun things that I’ve been wanting (including a couple shirts to accommodate our growing baby-he/she has outgrown almost all of my other shirts :). Isn’t it amazing how many wardrobes a woman can go through during her childbearing years?!
