I’m Lindsay. A writer, photographer, nutritionist, old soul, and flower child at heart. I love food and I have absolutely no problem admitting it. The healthy food and the not-so-good/ “this is why my pants don’t fit anymore” type food. I spend all day long learning about nutrition, but I will still drool over a chocolate donut with my morning coffee. Forever. It’s just who I am.
Recently though, over the last few years, my relationship with food has changed a lot. Becoming aware of what I put in my body is now extremely important to me. I spent most of my childhood and high school years feeling sick, drained of energy, and wishing there was something or someone who could fix it. I went to so many doctors and dermatologists, but none of them wanted to address the real problem. As a result, I usually ended up just pushing through and ignoring what my body was telling me. It took years before I started to listen to my body again and started making real changes. It was a blessing that I finally did.
Waking up feeling refreshed and ready for anything is a priority to me. Having enough energy to get through the day is a priority to me. Being happy is a priority to me, and it’s all possible when you give your body the right tools. I don’t remember exactly how it happened at first, but one day I woke up and realized that living on the edge, stuffing my body full of junk was not giving me the results I wanted (or lets be honest, needed). I owed it to myself to make a change. I was sick of feeling like I was just getting by. I wanted to feel comfortable and “at home” in my body again.
So, here I am. On a mission. A mission to learn more about the food I’m putting in my body, where I can get more of the “good stuff”, how I can use it as a tool to work FOR me, and how to just- if anything- make it taste some-what good! I can’t wait to fill you in on all of the stories along my way. It’s going to be juicy! ( And I won’t leave anything out.) Promise!
