I am a mother and a wife. At the moment caring for my family is my life’s work. I’m also a yoga teacher, Reiki Master/Teacher, small business owner and someone who cares about the Earth. The more I learn about the quality of food the more challenging I find it to keep my family healthy. So I decided to make some changes:
- Phase out processed foods
- Adopt a whole foods diet free of GMOs, pesticides, artificial growth hormones and antibiotics
- Keep it as local as possible
Thankfully it wasn’t a medical condition that forced these changes but simply an increased awareness. What we eat and how we source it not only affects our well being but also has an impact on the health of the Earth. The more I learn the more questions I have. What do you do if the locally sourced chicken that’s free of artificial growth hormones and antibiotics, and while good for the environment and local economy, is given genetically modified feed? Or the organic produce at the grocery story is transported from California, Mexico or places beyond?
Whole Life Mom is my journey as I navigate my way through the maze of information and questions that still need to be asked and answered. It is a sharing of how I choose to take care of my family first and the Earth second. At times the challenges are overwhelming but I know by sharing what we learn, asking the questions that need to be asked and through our conscious purchases in the marketplace, we are making a difference and encouraging change.
In 2014 I took this passion and decided to put one of the staples in our diet out into the world. If you have a moment please check out Soulicious Foods.
Thanks for joining me in this journey!
