The Seasonal Diet is run by myself and Peter. This is a business, we sell a “product“, but at the end of the day, we’re people too. So last week, you might have noticed it was a little quiet around here. If you’re a Tastemaker (what we call our paying members), then you know we went to Catalina Island for my birthday with some friends.
Hi Friends. This episode is our little PSA: DRINK MORE WATER!!!
It kills us to see how little water the people around us drink. Water is necessary for proper brain function; your body is made up of mostly water, and if you’re not replenishing that water, you won’t be able to preform at your peak, your best. Also, when you don’t drink enough water, your skin, hair and overall health suffer.
Because Sarah and I aim to eat 1 salad every day, we have to keep our salad dressings fresh, otherwise we may become bored and quit eating them.
So, inevitably, we end up creating new recipes on the fly.
I was doing dishes on night a couple weeks ago and Sarah asked me to quickly whip up a dressing, something with tahini and mustard for the salad she was just wrapping up.
This week’s show is all about the importance of mobility! About a year ago I hurt my back really bad. I had no idea what it was from, and eventually I had to get x-rays as it was not improving. Turns out, I lost the curve in my lower back from… Sitting Too Much! I had no idea that sitting could affect my health so much, and for 2 weeks I couldn’t sit, stand or lay down without pain. As a very active and health-conscious person, you can imagine how debilitating this was for me!
Do you ever think to yourself, “I want to do something bigger than myself?”
Or how about, “I wish I was inspired to do something that benefits others?”
I have those thoughts a lot.
Sometimes I think I’m not doing it big enough, working on The Seasonal Diet.
Or sometimes I’ll feel selfish, thinking I could be happily content just supporting myself and a little family.
