Listen for a little recap on my journey to healthy skin, and how I’m taking my time to heal this the second time around. Fran has been talking a lot about intuition and diet, how seasons and emotions can inform our dietary habits. You might find we have a lot in common on this subject!
If you are moving into any type of new diet, cleanse, detox, or fast, take your time! Ten years ago my approach was hard and fast. I’d learn about a new diet one night, and jump into it full on the next. While it worked for me for a time, it didn’t last, and now I know to take it slow. Bring all your new knowledge with you, all your respect for the land, and all the love in your heart. Add one new practice or food at a time and get to know it before adding another.
Today I will talk a little about the benefits of soaking, fermenting, and sprouting your grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes. A practice that will provide your body with increased access to the vitamins and minerals in your food. It is so important to nourish ourselves when we are in a weakened state, whether it’s acne, poor digestion, chronic illness, or stress. This is one way to up your nutrient-ante!
