It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.

Eating Healthy

Eating Healthy

One of the best ways to show your body some love is by eating healthy!

Make sure that you are getting all the nutrients that your body needs. It is the most simple yet effective way of taking care of your body.

We all love our sodas and junk food. We also know how easy it is to stop by McDonalds to grab some food real quick. Eating those things are ok every so often, but not all the time.

Know it’s ok to treat yourself, but your body will thank you for taking care of it.

Try eating more salads and proteins. Grilled chicken is perfect for a lunch or dinner. You also have all kinds of veggies that you can incorporate into your meals. Try roasting them with different seasoning and see how you like them.
