What’s on your plate?

August 3, 2009

I am excited to debut my new blog!

Taking from my theatrical background and applying it now to food, nutrition, wellness, etc…the title seemed only too appropriate.  Because I have come to believe completely that what nourishes us most is not always our food.

Of COURSE good food is good nourishment.  But what nourishes us as much (or even more) is the whole world we create for ourselves.  Having fulfilling relationships.  Feeling passionate about our careers.  Enjoying a spiritual or religious practice…connecting with ourselves and others on a deeper level.  And moving our bodies – finding physical activity that we enjoy so much we can’t help but do it regularly!  When we will up our life “plates” with these non-food sources, or these “Primary Foods”, we feel more vibrant and alive.  And then it becomes natural (and, yes, even easy) to make healthier food choices because we learn that we deserve and desire only good things!  Our natural state as human beings IS to be healthy and happy, but in these modern times we just need to uncover the right tools to put us on that path.

Yes I am still on the path.  Because health is, after all, a journey and not a one-stop destination. But having experienced a transformation through diet and lifestyle changes,I look forward to writing on all of these topics and sharing my experiences with you.  Rest assured I will talk about food as well.   After all, I do LOVE food and, having seen the fear on the faces of people in the supermarket aisles with every decision they make, I hope to help others learn to LOVE food, too!

Please bear with me as I get this blog operational.  But visit often, and share it with your friends if you are so inclined.  I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, comments, and feedback.

In the meantime…what will YOU put on your plate today to nourish you?
