The Adventure Begins

Image

It all started last fall really, when I decided that I needed to make some positive changes in my life.  Hmmm…no, scratch that.  It all began about a year and a half ago, when my life took a dramatic twist.  Nope, that’s not entirely accurate, either. The adventure began about a decade ago back, when I drunkenly signed up for a 500-mile bicycle ride at 2am.  Grrrrr….friends reading over my shoulder, are chuckling that it goes back much, MUCH farther than that even.

Okay.  Here it is:  I’ve always been a bit of a free spirit and the idea of taking on new challenges, biting off more than I can chew and making major productions of almost everything I touch is apparently a part of my genetic coding.

So, after hearing from several friends about their various gluten-free, vegan, no sugar, no alcohol completely “taking the body back to neutral” cleanses over the past year…well, I decided I needed to see if I could make it happen for me, as well.

So, here I sit.  New blog in lap, Pinterest board “30 Days of Gluten Free Vegan” is filling out nicely and a veritable forest of reading material is sprouting before my very eyes.  The research has begun and I gotta say, I’m pretty pumped.  In just about 2 weeks, I will begin a one month journey into the depths of “living clean”.  I am cutting out all meat.  Removing alcohol and sugars. Eliminating the evil that is gluten and staying as raw and fresh as I can.

This blog will be a record of what I am eating (the recipes and maybe even prep/cooking tips if I’m feeling so inclined to share), how my mind and body are feeling (the positive, not so awesome and probably a weird in there, too) and random blips of whatever else I want to share with the nonexistent following I currently have.  If there is anyone actually reading this, feel free to comment and get involved.  There is always something to learn out there and I would love to learn it from you!
