Now from VeggieGirl
While flipping through some old family albums, I stumbled upon the following photo (potential blackmail):
I have never been one to plaster a smile on my face “just to do it.” I never sugarcoat anything, nor do I hide who I am or what I am feeling.
This photo proves that fact about me – I am a no-nonsense girl.
And apparently I was not thrilled with the photographer or with the idea of posing for a photo ;)
In addition to reminiscing about life, myself, and getting in touch with my family roots, I have been enjoying another type of “root” lately:
My current “snack obsession”: a baked sweet potato with cinnamon & coconut butter (I highly recommend the Artisana brand of coconut butter).
My raw foods counselor Gena (from the “Choosing Raw” blog/website) introduced me to the combination since I am now incorporating more cooked root vegetables into my diet, in preparation for the colder months ahead. It is incredibly nourishing, satisfying, and “holy yum”-worthy.
Even as my life continues to get busier and a little stressful with schoolwork, exams, and other activities (hence less blogging and commenting), I am learning to incorporate enough “me time” into my daily routine and to take more time to appreciate who I am and what lies ahead in the future.
I encourage all of you to take more “me time” and to explore your own roots – both your “life roots” and “edible roots.”
