Bye Bye Winter Blues....

So...It was a long hard winter here in Michigan...winters are normally hard for me....winter blues...trapped in the house...grey skies etc...Well this winter was an exceptionally tough one to pull out of for me. Our family suffered some very heavy losses and our hearts have been very heavy. About a month ago, I decided that I could not stand feeling like crap anymore. It was time to do something! I got rid of everything "Not Real" in the cupboards. No more "pretend" processed food, sugar etc... I started researching Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Recipes. I was really amazed at what a great fit this was for me. Its all about what is right for YOUR body. You can find this out by taking this little Ayurvedic Dosha Test  Once I figured out my Dosha, I then found this great list of foods that work for me. WOW! It makes so much sense! These are all of the foods that I already love and I also recognized the foods that don't work so well for me and how they have worked against me in the past. So I stared out slowly...juicing every morning...my 11 year old son was no quite on board yet but by the end of the week I could not keep him away from the juicer. At first he was not very happy with his dinner options either but once he realized that "this is what we are having" he seemed to come around and want to help with the cooking and shopping. New things are exciting! So many great things have come from this change in our family diet.... I feel so good, I have so much energy, my house is clean and organized, my brain feels less foggy, I am present, I am mindful, I feel joy again. More time is spent together as a family doing things that are good for our bodies and less "Screen Time" is always a good thing! Here are some great recipes that I had saved on Pinterest.
Go get some Joy!
Listen to your body...it will tell you what you need.
