|check out 2 of the 6 stitches above the "eye" of the peacock feather. I think the Dr. tried to cut in between the feather lines.|
I have a tendency to go against the grain in a lot of areas, why should health be any different. See: cloth diapering and making baby food. ahem
Here is where it gets tricky. My main hurdles will be $$, time, and change. As most of my friends know I'm totally into couponing and saving money at the grocery store. As most of you may also know finding good deals on organic and healthy foods is a bit of a challenge. Time is also to be considered. It's called convince food for a reason. Busy families need fast food. By "fast" I mean quick. And by "quick" I'm talking 30 mins at most. That's about all the time I'm willing to spend in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to cook, but I also LOVE to spend time with my family. 3rd hurdle is change. Change is sooo hard. Why did they have to make change so hard. insert me whining here.
So how have to figured I would clear these hurdles? One at a time. Seriously, I'm not gonna be able to change everything at once. It's gonna have to be one at a time. Changing one thing at a time. For instance, adopting a new recipe. Stocking up on organic foods when they are on sale. Growing my own organic garden. Learning that I don't have to change everyones' opinions about my changes. That's a hard one.
I love to give resources/links so here ya go. If you're interested in some of the sites that I'm visiting lately, here they are.
Christina Cooks - She is amazing. Her story is amazing. She is hardcore though so it's not for the faint of heart. These are the recipes I hope to incorporate into my meals, One at a time. It's gonna take some convincing to get Paul to accept eating tofu and he may never but I can certainly try making it tasty enough to assist in the convincing.
The Krazy Coupon Lady - they list matchups for Whole Foods. It does mean that I'll be making more trips to Tampa but that's workable. We do have a local Chamberlin's Natural food store so I'll hopefully become more familiar with their products and be able to score some deals.
I want to start practicing Yoga again. I felt so good when I practiced. So I think that Yoga Journal will be lots of help, it's like I'm newbie again. My biggest concern now of course is not re-injuring the shoulder but helping it to heal properly.
I think that's enough my rambling on tonight, besides I've got to choose a great tofu recipe for Paul. ;-)
