Hola! Good Morning! As I sit here wearing a cRaZy Honey Girl mask – looking a little like Shrek’s partner – I had some random thoughts I wanted to share with you!
I have been dragging my feet getting my blog out to the peeps. I admit it. Yes, there have been real-life interruptions, but instead of using them as fuel – I’ve used them as excuses. I’ll admit, I’m certainly NO perfectionist (stop laughing Mr. Twisted!) But, for some reason, I find myself holding back until everything is perfect.
Well, guess what? That’s NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! Ha!
I’ve been super excited to share amazing, health boosting info. However, this blog-thing has made me grow and learn in areas I wasn’t expecting! Let me just say, building a website from scratch, when you are no kind of techy-type, is not easy! There are so many aspects to it!
*Taking a bow to the Geeks of the world*
My most recent road block of imperfection is the recipe side of things! I want to share with you what I do, what I learn, what I change, and even what I try – whether it’s a disaster or not. When you look at other blogs with their absolutely beautiful food pictures, I find myself holding back on posting my own!
A chef I am not. Let’s just get that outta the way right now! I took a pic of my morning smoothie, and well, I have some room for growth in the photography field – staging, background and all of that. BUT! I’ve made the conscious decision to share ALL of my imperfections with you. You know why?
Because I am an imperfect, crazy, random, mix-n-match, quirky, 100% nutty girl, and there is no hiding that fact! No matter how hard I try, lol!
I just am who I am. You know what though? I think that will hopefully resonate with you guys even more. We are all on a JOURNEY for good health, better skin, a smaller waistline, lush hair, happy attitudes, and good relationships! Right? (Or is it really just me after all?)
SO, I will be sharing my horrible imperfect pictures with you. I talk a lot about listening to your body. So, that’s what I did with my smoothie this morning. I included ingredients that would help HEAL my skin, as well as a tendon issue I’m dealing with in my wrist. Both skin and tendons rely on collagen to repair themselves. Collagen needs protein.
Because I don’t eat as much protein as I probably should, this morning I added some pure, 100% organic grass-fed whey protein to my smoothie. I also included some good spinach and whole milk kefir for the digestion as well as a little more protein, collagen – again for healing, some beautiful red antioxidants (raspberries and strawberries), and lots of healthy fats! Yep… I used intuition to build my smoothie…because
FOOD IS MEDICINE.
Anywho, I’m getting very excited to start this new journey in my life with you! I really look forward not only to sharing things with you, but also hearing from you all!
Love & Veggies
P.S. I will be working on those photography skillz! So, hopefully as we go along they will at least be easier to look at! Right now, they remind me a little of the whole “nailed it” series….ha! 🙂
