What does wellness mean?
In the past, I’ve thought of wellness as being diet and exercise; protein and counting calories. Although protein and calories are essential to health, wellness encompasses a vast wheel. Wellness is health, diet, exercise, self-care, and emotional intelligence. I’m here to go through this wellness journey with you, sharing my experiences, failures, and recipes along the way.
I first got this idea after recently having a few coworkers ask me for recipes and advice on going more plant-based. Around the same time, my dad found out he lost 20 pounds in just a few months after I encouraged him through an anti-inflammatory diet. In a sense, it almost felt like a no-brainer to create a platform where I could share my lack-of-expertise all in the same place.
I do not tout to be a wellness expert but I have spent a lot of time digging into the deepness within me to really understand what I need in life to grow (physically, mentally, and spiritually). I am continually on this cycle with me, of self-searching and understanding. And I fail. A lot. Sometimes I have a meal that every WFPB (whole foods, plant based) doctor would cheer for and sometimes I have meals that would quite literally cause them to faint in horror. I have an addiction to potato chips and one I am desperately trying to knock (HELP ME).
I am here to give and take advice on how to be our most well selves.
Here’s to living life to the fullest and feeling good doing it!
