Food was always a big priority for my family growing up. Dinner time was magnificient! Traditional roasts, curries from around the world, desserts to die for. People always over, sharing our love for food. Food was never just a fuel for the body, it was a way of life. Food was how my parents entertained.
Just recently I’ve been on my own food discovery. Learning and experiencing first hand how food can be a medicine for my body, mind and soul. I’ve been known in the past to struggle with depression. Feelings of hopelessness and rejection, just wanting to sleep the days away to numb the pain. Hands up who knows what I’m talking about. I believe in a God who is miraculous and I’ve taken huge steps with His help along the way. I’ve also discovered that food can play a big part in healing our minds.

What does your tomorrow look like? Are you investing into it now?
I’m determined to invest into my tomorrow not just for me but for my people, my husband, my children, my loved ones. Investing into my tomorrow by taking care of the inside, the unseen. Practising healthy habits, pursuing peace, making time for quiet, rest, for movement, for good food, God’s food.
I’ve started this year with a goal for increasing healthy habits and my mind is loving it! There are always days where I’m not on the ball and I don’t put enough of the ‘good stuff’ in and wow, do I feel flat and my mental state can quickly go down hill.
Simple daily changes with foods that are alive can really affect your state of mind and at first can seem very overwhelming to change. The key for me was to change one thing at a time and learn little bits on the way until the next change.
I can honestly say I’ve never felt more alive! I’m loving my food journey and the start of my healthy heart and soul.
I would love to share with you some tips to help you in your own health journey. You know where to find me.
