Whole30 – 2016TD28

Whole30 2014For the next 30+ days, I will be eating meat, vegetables, healthy fats, fruits and nuts. I will not be eating processed food, sugar, dairy, grains or legumes, and I won’t be consuming any alcohol.

I’ve done a few Whole30 challenges before, but this time I’m looking for something a little different. I lost touch with my Paleo choices last year and I would like to reconnect with what it means to feel healthy, vibrant, and in tune with my whole self.

If you’re doing a Whole30 or other challenge, if you are living/exploring the Paleo lifestyle, or if you are simply looking for some tasty recipes to add to your repertoire, be sure to leave a comment to let me know you’re out there! I am so glad you stopped by!

Day 28 is done!

Quote of the Day: “In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” – Robert Frost

Within each of us, we have all we need to survive, succeed, thrive, grow, change, and be. Sometimes we might forget or find it difficult to bring to the surface all of the strengths and qualities we hold, but over time I have come to believe this to be true. This includes those times when we are struggling and feeling lost or depressed or frustrated, and I love how Frost puts it so beautifully. Happiness lies within. Courage lies within. Resilience lies within. We are already complete.

This doesn’t mean that we have nothing to learn. We have an infinite number of things to learn about life, ourselves, and others. The ability to tap into our curiosity and explore what is new, or reexamine what is old and discover new depths, is our gift. When we stumble, we can always get back up and try again.
