Sometimes you hear salad and the last thing that comes to mind is a meal.

Or that it will be filling.

Well, when you put the right things in it, you can’t finish it!

I have been watching my carbs and following the Keto-plan for about 3 1/2 weeks now.  I am not hungry, and I am finding myself excited about meal planning and cooking again.

Keto week 1-what does it mean to nourish

I have a new-ish and exciting chapter I would like to share with you.  

But first let me say that I will still be sharing our DIY adventures, painted furniture re-do’s, before and after thrift store goodness and all the usual stuff too.

But, I am bringing in another part of my world that I have made some changes to and I am excited to share with you.

Eating not just to eat, but to nourish.

I have had seasons of my life where I am more intentional about the steps I take to prepare foods that nourish, and make time to take care of the matters of the spirit that leave us feeling filled up and healthy.

And seasons that I ate, and lived, but I slipped in my planning and choices, not putting my body and spirit first.

When that has happened I find myself tired, stressed, unable to sleep well, and my Fibromyalgia is coincidentally at it’s worst.

So as my pain level has steadily increased for months, I have struggled with energy and lack of sleep, and I have grown more frustrated I find myself turning back to a system that I have loved before, low-carb.

But this time I am utilizing more of a Keto approach.  While I will be monitoring my total carb intake for the day closely, my desire is to incorporate easy to prepare meals and snacks that nourish not just feed.
