practicing wellness – Wellness Week

I shared yesterday that I am taking the Master Veg program and I could not be more excited about it – I have already learned so much, and the curriculum ahead of me looks great. This is another instance where I find myself in a classroom surrounded by like minded people, which is always invigorating and fun. The evening classes have an informal social hour beforehand, and a couple classmates volunteer to bring food for everyone to share – you know I am excitedly planning my turn, right?

Taking care of my Dad this last year has me focusing on my own health. I have always been a proponent of preventative maintenance rather than fixing the illness after it happens – taking care of myself now so things don’t happen later. For me, this includes a plant based diet, regular visits with my doctors, rejuvenating workouts, therapeutic massage and my own home spa treatments. Jason and I both take supplements, we always have, and in the last month have a whole new regimen we are trying (I will soon dedicate a whole post to what we are doing).

I have a new approach to food as well – using food as healing and as fuel in addition to being celebratory and a big part of entertaining. I will continue with creating a fun food experience (always), at the same time focusing even more on the healthiest and nutritionally beneficial ingredients.
