Some of you are probably sitting there, staring at your screen and wondering how I even come up with the word 'vigor' when you feel like laying down and sleeping through January and February until spring and you feel some life flowing though your veins again. I sure hear that! It is difficult once Christmas and the holiidays are over to find your 'get up and go'. For most of us, it got up and went just after the holidays.
So, why is this blog entitled 'Eating Clean'? How is that going to help you to feel that vigor and excitement again? Well, without going into too much detail (because I could write a book on this stuff!), I'm going to talk about how our eating affects SO much of who we are and what we do. Our North American diets are loaded with sugar and white flour and white everything - so much of our food has been totally stripped of its nutrients and health-promoting properties. Can a change in diet change your life? Absolutely!!
So, here's the deal. From now on and for awhile in my blogs I will be talking about clean eating. What it is and how to do it. I want us all to have a healthy and a happy new year and yes, I would love to hear that you are feeling excited about who you are and about your life.
First step - for this next week, let's just commit to one thing - drinking more water. How about even cutting out a coffee or two and having water instead? Let's get radical!
Next week - more on 'clean eating'. I don't know about you but I feel more invigorated just talking about it!
