Article Excerpt:

I am excited to be part of the continuing 30 Days to a Food Revolution blogging event initiated by Diane over at The W.H.O.L.E. Gang. Inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution to make a difference, she asked 30 different bloggers to share ways to shift from processed foods or unhealthy foods to the foods our bodies need and love.  From April 26-June 4, her blog was filled with these amazing bloggers sharing their wisdom, and it was such a pleasure to read! Since the event was such a hit, Diane wanted to extend the event past the original 30 days and recruited more bloggers to contribute for ongoing posts.  I happily volunteered, and am so excited to be contributing to the growing real food movement. 

 

My tip: Embrace change and shake it up.

My recipe: Raw Strawberry "Milk"Shake

 

Everyday, I try to shake it up a bit.   Maybe I sit in a different bus seat.  Maybe I jazz up an old dress with a new belt.  Maybe I try out a new recipe. Sometimes it is a larger decision, like choosing to take part in a new volunteer event, starting a new writing project, or making changes to my educational or work timeline.  Anyone who knows me will tell you: I thrive on change. 

When I was diagnosed with multiple food allergies and intolerances, a Candida albicans overgrowth, and chronic Lyme Disease, I was forced to confront a lot of changes.  Not the least of these changes was reinventing my diet - I needed to eliminate gluten, sugar, yeast, and my many allergens, and make a full transition to whole foods cooking.  I knew I had two choices:  fight change and be miserable, or embrace change and discover joy in the unexpected.

In short? I could either get crabby or get creative.
