Personally, I believe that everything we do has a karmic flow. By karmic flow, I’m talking about karma. The idea that everything you contribute to, the decisions you make and the way you act in this world will always eventually come back to you in one way or another.
Traditionally when most people think about karma, its thought about not doing negative things. Essentially, don’t lie cheat and steal and you’re good right? Not so much. With that thought train, why don’t we let that go into everything we do including the food we eat?
I know we’re already in week 6, but to be totally real, we are just getting started! Now that we know that we can eat delicious plant based meals, it’s about that time to talk about why we’re doing this for our health in the first place.
Plant based diets are rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. They're also very high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and are low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Individuals who eat a plant based diet are at a much lower risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity just to name a few.
The biggest spring cleaning that I love to do is to clean out my gut and cleanse for a few days! Cleansing shoudnt’t be about losing weight, it’s about energetically hitting a reset button on your body. Its about raising your vibration and becoming aware of everything you’re eating. Its about continuing to build a healthy relationship to food, and understanding what your body is really needing instead of craving. You may lose weight, lose puffiness in your face, see clearer skin, sleep better, have more energy and overall feel very clear.
Making time. What a complicated yet so simple concept. This is by far is the #1 reason why most people can’t stick to any meal prep, healthy routine or a plant based diet. Not enough time.
Look at your own excuses this week, and take time to MAKE TIME.
Download your shopping list, make it all at once or make it throughout the week. The goal here is to have a solid plan to supplement those days when you’re too tired, or too busy to cook. Meal prep shouldn’t be the same thing over and over again, it should be a helping hand to guide you through the week, and to support you in whatever mood you may be in.
