Back in 2009ish, I was what I would consider to be a veg head. I ate a more Plant Forward approach. I love veggies and felt great with that way of eating.
But things changed a few years later. I started Crossfit and slowly made my way to a more Paleo approach to eating.
This did not work well for me.
My body didn’t like it and tried to tell me that with the development of an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s (which is a thyroid issue.) My other conditions that I manage started flaring as well but I ignored it all thinking that all these “wellness” folks knew better than me.
Turns out they don’t!
No one knows our bodies better than we do!
After several years I decided to do my own thing and start trusting what my body was telling me. I went back to a plant forward way of eating and haven’t looked back.
My goal is to help others who are looking for a more plant forward approach get started and find a sustainable way for them to nourish their bodies with plants.
