Me. Today. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

Watch Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. It I'll wreck you for the good.  This girl loves food so I will be working on a Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle that tastes interesting . I didn't just wake up and decide to take this road. I decided when I became sick over 7 years ago with digestive issues that a change needed to be made. I have been eating GF and GMO free and Organic for over five years but for me it's time to take the next step. 

For those who struggle with depression, cutting out all processed food and refined sugars and flours will give you a lift. It may take 2 weeks to notice. Eat real food. 

Over 7 years ago, I visited a nutritionist who was realistic about me making a complete lifestyle change. She knew it was going to be a challenge, it was; I took baby steps, but so glad I took the challenge 7 years ago.

 Now for the next challenge.... 

 Just in case you wondered. Yum.
