The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

For many, many months, this blog has been at the forefront of my mind. As much as I told myself that I was too busy to approach this huge undertaking, it just kept creeping back in, like a nagging headache or an annoying song being sung over and over again. So here it is. The beginning.

On my personal blog, there have been snippets here and there regarding food and healthy living. I have always wanted to know more, to become more educated about food and health. Luckily, I was raised in a home where healthy living was taught and regularly practiced.

I strongly believe in Chinese medicine (a topic for another day), physical, mental, and spiritual exercise, and eating large amounts of raw produce.

It seems being healthy is becoming trendy, almost nearing an obsession or an extreme from one end of the spectrum to the other end. For me, it’s a better way to live and experience life. For me, it should be the way of life, to eat healthily and to give our bodies the proper nutrition it needs (on a cellular level).

Juicing has always fascinated me, literally. And for nearly two years, I have been pouring over articles, papers, scholarly journals, and watching numerous documentaries about food, food production, and juicing. After all of this research, I have determined that juicing is something I want to incorporate into my life and into my family’s life.

As I previously mentioned, we’re healthy people . . . for the most part. We eat fairly well, exercise often, and attend to our spiritual growth. However, come early-afternoon, I feel (as most people do) groggy, sleepy, tired (whatever label you choose to put on it). Despite having two energetic little girls, my body and mind are utterly spent, and I yearn for more natural energy. On top of this yearning, my gall bladder has given me fits for ten years. In fact, there have been periods recently when I couldn’t put anything into my mouth but fruits or vegetables. Not doing so, led to extreme pain and horrible discomfort. But I believe in self-healing; I believe that the body (if fed properly) can heal nearly any ailment. And although western medicine is important (another topic for another day), we depend on it too much.

With all of this being said, I do not and will not ever claim to be an expert. I do not hold a degree of any sort in nutrition, botany, or agronomy, but I have a passion for food, for health, and for living life the way it should be lived. So welcome. I hope you enjoy reading about our experiences: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Wow Kelsey! I love that you are doing this website! I seriously read pretty much everything on it and I feel so excited. You might be hearing from me a lot in the next while because I need someone to be my mentor and my cheerleader. I really want to start juicing and doing the cleanse and all that. I am so sick and tired of feeling so sick and tired! I seriously feel light headed and dizzy a lot and I am so tired most of the time and it's affecting my parenting and every other aspect of my life and I want change! I feel so inspired by you and your husband to finally make the big change. I know it's going to take some time to prepare but I am ready to start my research and my planning and get this thing rolling! Thanks for your inspiration!
