Twenty Day Challenge! Day # 1 The Choice I'm 45 this year and many times people comment about how young I look, well I guess so, I feel young. But it's not about how you look on the outside, it's about how you Feel on the inside! With the onset of the fires here in Sonoma County last year, and a very hard breakup, I fell into a deep depression and my health deteriorated in a big way! So here I am, looking to regain strength, vitality, and mental clarity. Friends also often ask me are you vegetarian, vegan, ect ect because I eat a mostly plant based diet. Well I am none of these things, I am Robyn. I have been mainly vegetarian for 25 plus years. There were moments when I did eat birds and fish, at one point I ate buffalo and lamb, it's true! In these last few years I've come to discover that wheat and dairy were making me sick, affecting mostly my digestion and my mood. It's taken me many years to fine tune healthy eating habits, there was a time I wasn't eating a complete diet. In this last year I've started giving up dairy and wheat and I'm feeling a profound difference in my digestion, but still need to cleanse more. The main reason I have chosen to not eat animals for most of my life is because of the disgusting practice of factory farming and cruelty to animals. My views have changed in that I support regenerative agriculture as I realize there will always be meat eaters and we need the grazers and stewarding of the land in a responsible way, it serves the understanding of the whole of ecological systems. I do not judge meat eaters, but I myself am not one at this part of my journey, mainly because it lowers my vibration to eat animal products, and I listen to my body! So yes I am choosing a grain free, animal free plant based diet. So here we are Day 1. First is the choice...for good health! Today I make that choice.And today I am creating my plan for these 20 days... I will share each day a little tidbit! I hope you enjoy! Love love love!
