When you change what you eat, your whole life changes.
Does that scare the crap out of you?
Did it give you a little sick feeling in the pit of your stomach?
I’m a chef. Food has been a HUGE part of my life. I resisted dietary changes like a mofo — Swear. To. Gawd. Eventually I had to face my fears and handle up on reality if my entire world was going to improve (read: change).
The last 10 years of my life has been a huge evolution.
I have gone from a New Orleans living, food slinging, beer and wine drinking, indulge-a-holic hot mess to a strong, vibrant, healthy, sober, empowered female grabbing life and opportunity by the balls.
And…I’m doing it while living the life of my dreams at my favorite US beach.
An accident? Ahhhhh, no.
In late July of 2007, two years after Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent levee breaks in New Orleans, I reached my pain threshold and had to do something about how miserable I had become.
I felt like shit.
I my body and spirit was a swirling toxic cesspool of pain, exhaustion and depression.
After this traumatic experience I was terrified that I was not going to ever be able to do the things I desired most in my life.
What did I do?
I swallowed my fear, and dove into the deep end of the pool. I took a ginormous leap of faith.
Scary, scary stuff. No joke.
I sold my house and 97% all of its contents (I keep a 5′ x 5′ storage closet with some personal items) and set off on a road to personal discovery.
I spent 6 months traveling the United States before I liquidated the remainder of my life (my car and its contents) and stepped onto a plane at LAX with my back pack, a camera and a one-way ticket to Mexico (no phone, no laptop, no handy communication device).
Game on Universe, Game ON!
But here’s what I didn’t know at the time.
I was sick. Really sick.
However, like a lot of women in my shoes, I kept pushing through it all, hoping to eventually get on the right side of it.
I wasn’t sick enough to be bed ridden, but I never EVER felt good. EVER.
Aches, pains, exhaustion, brain fog…nagging B.S. Lots of it.
I just kept pushing.
I saw a myriad of healers along the way because… why not? I believe that healing takes many forms and our methodologies here in the U.S. leave me desiring something more rooted in a cure, not symptom management. I figured the rest of the world gets sick, let’s see how they handle it. I might learn something in the process,no?
Here I am a decade later a changed and vastly improved woman.
Food was my problem and food was also the solution.
Do you want to feel better?
Do you want to have more energy and less brain fog?
Maybe lose some weight?
Manage your autoimmune disease?
Feel vibrant and strong?
The best way to accomplish this is through diet and lifestyle changes. Truth be told, it’s the only way to do it.
Everyone wants to hear good things about their bad habits, right?
If you’ve come here expecting me to coddle you and tell you what you want to hear instead of what you need to hear, I’m not your girl.
Let’s make that clear right up front.
You can keep pretending that the solution lies in a pill but you already know that it’s not true. You’ve tried the quick fix path before, right? It doesn’t work.
With food as the solution there is:
- No long disclaimer list of potentially harmful side effects;
- Nothing to ask your doctor about (because they don’t know how to write a prescription for food);
- No drugs necessary to counteract the effects of what you’re ingesting; and
- No long term tethering to a never ending cascade of pharmaceutical drugs.
Here’s a shocker! Brace yourself.
Food is medicine.
“Food” is creating your problems. That stuff they call food but is actually crappy, processed, sitting on a shelf and has no life in it garbage — that is making you sick. Yeah, that food!
On the other hand the good, whole, clean, fresh stuff can counteract what the processed stuff is doing to you.
What you choose to put in your mouth is powerful – either as a disease promoter or a healthy cure.
YOU have the power to decide which path you want to take.
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?
Maybe this quick video will offer you a perspective you’ve not heard before and help you decide if you are ready for change or not.
