“Small Moves, Small Moves”

So when we are wanting some goal–for example, to go whole foods plant based (a very worthy goal) and we are overwhelmed by how big it seems, I am reminded by taking things one step at a time.
Perhaps this week you can focus on converting just your milk to plant based milks. Perhaps it’s that for breakfast you will expand your palate to WFPB (whole foods plant based).

It’s super easy when you do it like that. And when that one step is done and you can say, “I’ve got that.” or “ok done! What’s next?” then you can do the next step. Maybe then it’s when your goal is so much closer than when you first discovered that going WFPB was the best thing for you and your family.

Ditching Dairy for Good! But How Do I?

(The big step between I can’t and I won’t is here, knowing WHY to switch) You can buy it from the stores OR you can make your own EVEN if you don’t have a Vitamix/Blentec blender. Secret to making your own: Always soak nuts/seeds overnight, drain really well, FREEZE in bags. After frozen, smash it up with your old meat tenderizer (flat side) or hammer (gently). Then it’s always measurable. Most of the time you can use a 1:4 ratio depending on your preference. Lately I’ve been using a 1:5 ratio (i.e. 1 cup nuts and 5 cups filtered water).

Q & A for Earth Momma, Are You Stocking Up?

What are your feelings about the possibility of there being a shortage of good or loss of electricity, connectivity? We truly won’t know until it happens. Panicking about it is not healthy and if we can just get our mindset into gear about the fact that we do the best we can to prepare for life stuff in general. If it’s that we need to get our “supplies” updated and stocked up but with the determination that we are simply taking care of ourselves and our loved ones, awesome. My feelings are that it doesn’t hurt at all to do some stocking up with pantry items, toiletries, etc but to not do it out of fear.
