Above Grade

I have this theory that there is a blogpost graveyard. Not the type where awful - never should have been written - turn your head and shudder posts go, but the place where posts which have been written and never published go to commiserate one another on their non-published state. For all those who maintain their own blog, whether public or private, you know what I'm talking about. The posts that are utterly too personal, delve too deeply, or are just too special to share. I have a boat load of them. Sometimes I really want to hit the 'PUBLISH POST" button; I inch the cursor over, wanting to click the mouse so badly, but then pull away at the last moment. Today, this happened yet again. So, while there are a few posts that may very well end up in said imaginary graveyard, I have a few tips for you to keep you healthy, happy, and most of all above ground.

Wholefood plant based nutrition is an integral part of my life. Because of this fact, I am often asked questions on why I made this health wise change, how to do it, and if it's hard to do. First off, I made this health change for a multitude of reasons, many of which I outlined in this post here. Making the transition to a wholefood lifestyle is as quick as making the decision to do so. You can of course make a gradual shift, but for others it's easier to commit to a new way of living and eating, and not look back. I for one found it easier to drop the meat and walk away. To be honest, the only time I have a tough time is at family occasions when the meal is centred around a side of cow, or an entire bird [it doesn't sound as appealing when stated like that does it?] Whether you are just kicking off your food/health investigation, or are ready to delve deeper into your study, here are a few resources to feast on.

    1. ha ha I knew you'd understand! Some blog posts should never see the light of publication, but please let me know if any of yours surface - I'm sure they're highly entertaining ha ha!
