Wow! A month already?

It has officially passed the month mark on my adventure with eating vegan.... and we will continue. I am feeling fantastic! And Orion, sweet little Orion is flourishing! Russell is a good sport and really understands the "why?" of how we are eating. I am blessed to be married to someone who "gets" me and the way I think. And when he doesn't understand he is still patient and willing to go along for the ride. The food we've been eating has been full of flavor and fills our tummies! I have also started drinking Kombucha as it has enormous digestive benefits. I promised Russell I would only try it for 2 weeks (by the $3.59 bottle) and if I wanted to continue I'd start making my own, wahoo! So far, so good! I'll have to update again if things start to change, otherwise this is most likely a permanent change (at least for me and possibly Orion)
The cookbook that is shown above is our new eating bible practically. The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook (click link to purchase) We LOVE the delicious recipes in this book, ans she gives great tips and descriptions on preparing whole foods. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone, not just vegetarians. There are a few tasty looking meat recipes in there too. Check it out. I also have a link to her blog on my blog list, definitely worth looking at! (I am in no way affiliated with this company, I just REALLY love the cookbook! )

I am starting to feel more connected with purpose, with the planet, my work, my family and everything else. When the food fog clears its amazing to see what was not visible before. The Biodynamic Craniosacral work that I do is all about lifting "the veil" to reveal what is normally "unseen" and to offer space and a renewed sense of original purpose for the client. When I am more clear in what I feel, the work unfolds exponentially. I have been in class for 4 days this week and already I have noticed the extra depth in my work that was not present over a month ago. And no the picture above does not mean I am pregnant, its representative of my ability to see the whole picture clearer and in a different way than before. :-)
I am trying to bring in more Craniosacral clients into my practice, I know that this work has substantial benefits and I'd LOVE to be able to share it with more people.

That's terrific to hear! I think I felt better when I was a vegetarian, and was one for almost a decade. But when I was preggers with Sophia, I began to have major craving for meat. I would love to go back one day, but not sure if I would have the discipline to a Vegan.

You go girl!

I'm so glad its working out for you and also your sweet boy, I know his troubles realllly troubled you. Its amazing that you can feel the difference in your work happy for you. I don't do non-veg very often but I'm a sugar junkie..when I avoid sugar and simple carbs(rarely) I have that feeling of the veil lifting. I don't have the discipline yet to change to all whole grains...maybe after baby when I start running..(the plan/dream).

Very proud that you've stuck with it and are planning a life style change, you are quite the inspiration.

Yay, so glad the journey will continue and is benefiting you both! On another note three cheers for Russel going along for the ride. Would love to peruse your book sometime as we also have added lots of veg offerings to our weekly menu.
