Today is the first day of a New Year's cleanse - it's the usual 21-day GAS CAP (gluten, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, animal products) program we've done for the past few years. I hope some of my cleanse buddies are on board; I know some of you are trying different programs. No matter what program anyone is doing, I hope we can use this blog as a place where we can come and share our experiences, thoughts, recipes - whatever. Please jump on and share whatever you're going through - I'd love to hear from you!
Right now I'm up to my eyeballs in life - this week I'm preparing to teach a class in nutrition, I'm facing writing deadlines, and I'm working two part-time retail jobs (yes, I'm finally working at Whole Foods, and at a health club for people over 50 - more about this later).
So, somehow, I'm going to have to find time to shop for and prepare healthy food in the midst of the madness. But I'm welcoming the challenge. Because this is real life, and life is messy. In the past, when all I did was write, I had oodles of time and it was easy to make up soups and entrees and have everything just so. Not this time. I'm doing this on the fly. So here goes - I'm jumping into the deep end with nothing but one pot of soaked beans that needs to hit the stove. After that, we'll just have to see what happens!
