Well, it’s not a really a ‘new’ leaf, hence an incomplete idiom. 🙂
It’s been 11 months since I moved to California and a healthy lifestyle was something that I surely expected from a life in sunny Cali. But it wasn’t quite so.
I spent my last 11 months settling into a new place, getting to know a new job, new colleagues and making new friends and I had a great time. I reconnected with my favorite charitable running organization, Team in Training, and made great new awesome friends.
The healthy lifestyle stopped at regular exercise.
With a new year and my ‘honeymoon’ period over I am ready to get back to focusing on a healthier lifestyle. I have been following Jess Ainscough, The Wellness Warrior, for some time now. And finally I bought her newly published book Make Peace with Your Plate this week.
So the first thing I did today is run to the local Farmer’s Market and get some organic goodies.
My first goal: Get rid of the pesticides in my pantry and fridge!
I was successful:
My second goal will be: Learn to get some of the great nutrients as a juice.
I will need to buy a juicer. So something to research this week. In the meantime I started small with my blender. Just some apples, bananas and kiwis:
It tasted YUMMY!!
Healthy food is cooking right now. I’d better go and check on it.
Happy and Healthy Eating everyone
