Tuesday night’s Kooking Kaia Klean seminar was an eye opener. You think you are doing everything right, and then…you realize there is room for improvement. But that’s life isn’t it? Everyone is imperfect, but during this BRIK, my journey has been to improve my eating habits & relationship with food. I have been on a (mini) roller coaster in terms of food. I was raised in the South, where fried food, red meat, & sweet tea was a weekly, if not daily, part of your “diet.” During college, I ate whatever was cheap and available, & it wasn’t until we moved 2,000 miles across the country that I seriously looked at what I was putting in my body. While I thought I was “eating clean,” there was A LOT of room for improvement. It wasn’t until Kaia was introduced to me that I realized FOOD IS FUEL, and I had been improperly fueling my body for 24+ years!
I have committed myself to this BRIK & nutritional plan, and have thoroughly enjoyed testing out new recipes & have found myself realistically looking at food & asking myself “What will that to for me?” Will it give me hours of energy for work, coaching, working out? If the answer is a “maybe, or no” I find it much easier to turn my head and make a better choice. Yet, even though my pantry/fridge is full of quinoa, lentils, veggies, almond milk, & tofu, THERE IS TILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. Instead of buying hummus, I’m going to be trying Nikki’s yummy homemade hummus dip (look for recipe in this weeks nutritional plan), and I will be looking into WildTree’s spices that are organic, and have no sulfur dioxide, which is (GASP) found in every spice in my cabinet right now! I am also looking into all natural make-up/lotions after having my eyes opened by the Arbonne reps who gave me an insight into what glycerin ACTUALLY is…Google it if you aren’t aware. We are all imperfect, & that’s what makes us unique, but I am sure going to try to be perfect in my nutrition…will you join me?
