A year ago today, my first cookbook, Eating Clean, came out and I wanted to say thank you for the most incredible year of my life thus far. Thank you for all of your love, support, comments, emails, hand written letters and more. Over a decade ago, my life fell apart and I struggled for 10 years to keep myself alive. I promised myself that if I survived, I'd dedicate my life to helping others get their health and lives back because you deserve more than 7 minutes with a doctor who doesn't listen to you or makes you feel like your nuts. You're not. And you're not alone. I counted the number of emails I've received in the last year from some people who bought my book and the number was over 950 emails. It made me realize how many people need hope and guidance because they weren't given accurate information on what to eat or what 'health' really looks like. Wherever you are, whoever you are, know this: You're not alone. Those times when you feel like everything is falling apart, remember that it's the beginning of a beautiful journey back to yourself. We're all on a journey, some of us are too scared to move on and others push through. What I've learned is that if you want to make a change in your life, you've gotta start focusing on you, spend more time alone and get quiet with yourself to listen to what your body is telling you (via symptoms like PMS, cravings, exhaustion) and trust that you're meant to learn something (or a lot of things). This is the beauty of life. It's not a race. Get off the treadmill, stop counting calories, eat what your body wants and let go of the pressures from social media/people that drain you. Learn how to FEEL more, experience things that scare you and get back in touch with your life. Being healthy isn't about doing what others want you to be or what others are doing. All of these things from the treadmill to calorie counting to social media will deplete your adrenals and lead to bigger issues if you don't take care of you. As much as this book is about my journey, it has nothing to do with me. It's about YOU and for YOU. I'm amazed by all of your love and support and I can't thank you enough for bringing so much joy to my life.

Lunch || In other news, I can't even begin to describe what it feels like to be healthy and have all my energy back...to not have any symptoms, not having any pains, not feeling sick, not breaking down in tears when I wanted to give up, not crashing at 3pm, not sleeping 12-16 hours a night, not feeling out of control from roller-coaster hormones, not having to go to 6 doctors/healers/bodyworkers/hospitals each week....but to truly LIVE and experience LIFE. Wow, is this how everyone feels everyday? It's mind-blowing. My life has shifted in more magical ways than I can even begin to describe in the last few weeks and I can't wait to share with you what's bringing me back to life. I'm learning how to LIVE more and more each day after a decade of being chained to doctors and my bed and protocols. Just being able to cook all 3 meals for myself without crashing and being able to eat all my meals on my lovely tableware (instead of spooned in my mouth because I was too weak to put food on plates) has brought tears rolling down my face. It's been so emotional, so beautiful and I feel like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. But this time, I'm doing life a whole lot different. Not stressing myself out, not overscheduling myself, not trying to do-do-do, but to learn how to be and receive this gorgeous experience called life that I've had zapped from me for over a decade. Here is what I know for sure: Life is constantly changing. It's up to you to make sure you're headed in the direction you want. This has nothing to do with anyone else but you. If I could give my 20 year old desperately sick self some advice it would be this. Trust yourself. Trust your intuition. The body does not lie. Your body does not lie. Deep down inside you know that but you're too scared to trust yourself. I know that feeling all too well. Once you learn how to listen to and hear the feedback your body is giving you on a daily basis (headache, bloating, etc), you'll start to open yourself to a whole new way of living. Trust me. It's a way of thriving, not just surviving because you deserve more and you know it. More to come on TheHealthyApple.com. For now, give yourself a hug from me. xx
