Lifestyle changes can take many forms. They can be conscience decisions to change an aspect of your life, like your exercise or eating habits. They can also be sparked by a change in your circumstances that ultimately leads to a shake up in your daily routine. I’ve recently been going through a lifestyle change. My husband and I had a baby on May 21st of this year. Our little girl has enriched and blessed our life beyond measure. However, much like everyone warned me, kids change everything! I don’t wake up in the morning refreshed and ready to go workout. In fact, I’m lucky if I get to the gym. I also don’t have as much time to prepare meals and snacks. I use to love recipes full of unique ingredients and spices, now I much prefer something simple.
I say all this not to join the band wagon of “kids are the reason we eat poorly and don’t exercise”. I mention these struggles to point out that I am finding a new way to enjoy my traditional activities of daily living with my little girl. Dinner preparations may be scaled back and simplified for awhile, but cooking with local organic food is something I wish to instill in my child. Therefore, finding easy family friendly recipes is my new passion. You’ll likely see some of these options appear on the Clearly Organic blog. I look forward to sharing this journey and lifestyle change.
