This week is obviously brought to you by the letter V.
A few years ago I started using Hello Fresh and I was always so amazed at how easy it was to make simple vegetables the star of my dinner plate.
FFWD to the last 6 months when I started putting a lot more focus on using foods to heal and guess what -- that takes a lot of vegetables.
I started experimenting with different combinations of both seasonings and vegetables and learned you pretty much cannot go wrong so long as you don’t over cook them.

I'm discovering - a mere 20ish days into 2021 -- that the habits I'd like to change usually involve my vices. Whether I’m eating my feelings, shopping my way out of boredom, or dousing away the stress of the day with a glass of pinot noir, the root of my escape is usually an emotion I‘d rather not deal with.
One of my personal journeys for 2021, is really leaning into how emotional health can directly influence how the rest of our body feels and functions. Bottom line, when we are in emotional distress, it lowers our overall quality of life and how we feel day-to-day. So in addition to eating clean I rely a lot on essential oils.

That's it for this week.
