… So many questions that I was curious about, and wanted to explore for myself…

For over 4 years I have tried and explored different types of diets and eating habits… Figuring out what worked for me… I think I am finally figuring it out.
I was recommended to take an immunology test recently, which tests my blood with over 54 different chemicals and food ingredients. They analyze the reaction and conclude what you may be “allergic” too. I was aware of a few of them, but was definitely surprised by a lot of them! They brought up some pretty large staples of my diet. Ever since moving to a more vegan diet, and replacing my meals with plant-based protein, I could tell something was off. It has been a month of me being vegan, and as much I enjoyed it, it’s clearly not working with my body. I’m not giving up on being plant based, but I may need to add pasteurized eggs or high quality wild caught fish. This is a chance for me to be more creative with the meals, and see how great my body can feel.
Results show that I am reactive to:
Rice (my life)
I am going to eat consciously around this information for 6 months and see the impacts on my body. My main goal is to find balance between the food I enjoy, and taking steps to improve our environment. Let’s see how it goes!

… and now sustainability…
I have become an advocate for eating responsibly what you are putting in your mouth, and buying from suppliers… What does that necessarily mean?
Do you know where your avocados are coming from? Do you know what the chickens are fed to create the perfect egg? Do we even know what is being sprayed on our Spinach and Apples that we love so dearly?
What I am trying to explain to you is that there is a possibility for you to feel amazing in your body, eat the food you want, and consciously take care of our planet.
