A dear friend of mine recently embarked on the WHOLE 30 with her family for many reasons. She blogged about it...it was wonderful.....you can read about it HERE!
But it has had me thinking about how that was one of my VERY FIRST BOOKS I read about health and nutrition about 7 years ago when I first was learning about WHOLE FOOD (Paleo) living. I loved it! Yet I have allowed cooking hacks. I have allowed complicated whole food eating to dominate sometimes. And I know why! BECAUSE my dear daughter and hubby still miss the cakes, bread, and some other processed junk. My hubby not nearly as much as before....but my daughter for sure still "jones" for junk.
With all my hoshimoto/thyroid/adrenal stuff it can sometimes just feel UGH!! BUT I have been realizing as I have been digging deep with the generational healing stuff that I LIKE MY FOOD SIMPLE AND BASIC! I DON'T NEED IT COMPLICATED. And if I model it to my family and just continue to shop only WHOLE FOOD and not make a fuss about it.....well then it will just become a way of life for them as well. Thus whatever choices they make outside of the home is their responsibility but I can make the choices for in the home AND NOT FEEL GUILTY for not buying "gluten free" treats and processed junk....because it is still JUNK, not WHOLE REAL FOOD!
I have decided I am not buying ANYMORE "junk".....I WILL make sure there is plenty of fabulous snacks and food always cut up and available and served with a smile.
I am sure they will come around eventually...lol....
What are your struggles with WHOLE FOOD eating!? What resolutions can you make about your grocery shopping that turns your food into fabulous adventures rather than frustrations?! Take a moment to think about it....pray about it....journal about it....then take action!
Hugs and blessings always my dear readers....family....friends....
