New Year, New Body Health Challenge

Who: Anyone wanting to learn about nourishing food choices. Anyone wanting to prepare healthier meals for their family without breaking their budget. Anyone who suspects they aren't feeling their physical best and wants to take back their health - give it a try! What do you have to lose?!

What: A ten-week challenge for real people to go back to real food, real simply. We're going to try to eat WHOLE foods (not the grocery store) that have been altered as little as possible from farm to table. We'll learn about and practice ways of preparing foods that our ancestors did instinctively, and science now supports. And we will try to do this as simply as possible.

I will be posting information, recipes, and encouragement each week, according to the ten food guidelines in the previous post. People will be challenged to follow one guideline a week, building on them, until all ten are being followed during the last week. There is much grace in this. Some guidelines may be harder, or impossible, to follow, so you can customize this as you wish.

The challenge last ten-weeks, and will start January 12th and last until March 22nd. Ideally, you will take some of these changes and make them LIFESTYLE changes though.

Where: All around the world! I'm hoping to have weekly or biweekly recipe demonstrations in the Boston/Newton area, but I'm willing to travel if there is interest.

Why: If you check out my welcome, you'll see that both my husband and I have experienced some health issues that modern medicine just wasn't able to "fix." Food was one of the ways we restored our health, so I'm pretty passionate about sharing my experience and knowledge with others. Our health is invaluable, and we often live sub-par physical lives, assuming the way we feel is just "part of getting older." That doesn't have to be true. Let's take back our health, and take back our food!

Taking the health interest survey would be really helpful to me. And please post a comment if you're in!
