Embark with me
Growing up, I’ve never really been too concerned with being “healthy” per say. I’ve gone through a lot of phases with my fitness and eating, but my biggest concern was always weight loss. Recently, I’ve come to realize that weight loss doesn’t equate to health. I’ve had an enlightening moment where I’ve realized how important it is to take care of my body today for tomorrow. You really ARE what you eat. There’s no way around it. You love green veggies, you’ll be full of energy and feel great. Eat a double double animal style burger, and you’ll feel like an animal who really needs to take a nap. My vice has always been sugar, and Lord knows it shows. I eat sugar, I bloat into a Goodyear blimp. Once I get going, I don’t stop. Welcome the familiar binge.
I don’t want to keep facing the same cycle. I want to feel good not only on the outside but on the inside. I’m just a normal person that hasn’t developed any healthy habits, thanks to my lovely traditional, Middle-Eastern parents (God bless their hearts for not knowing any better). In the last year, my eyes have opened to a whole new world in health. I’m still continuing on this journey. Join me on my quest as a “normal” person (whatever that means – weekend-binge-eating-greasy-foods-sugar-snacks-chocolate cakes-cookies-galore) who tries to find their way to becoming a health nut. I want to be a granola. A hippie. A purist. Borderline Palean-Raw-Gluten Free-Microbiotic-All Natural-Organic-Local-Homegrown-Juicing-Blending-Growing foodie. I want to have my gluten-free cake, and eat it, too.
