If I’m honest my journey began long before I had a choice in the matter. I can remember my mother having in and out ventures where we’d be on this health kick then on whatever again. We were the kids who’d be eating sugar-free candy and our friend would be looking at us like we had cooties.
By the time I became a teen my mother was introducing us to holistic medicine here and there little did I realize at the time the impact it would have on my life. By the time I’d had my first child I began learning to survive on my own. I still called mom when baby became ill and she’d always encouraged I first try a holistic approach before resorting to modern medicine. Fast forward to my 4th child and kick it up a notch by now we’ve omitted pork our diet.
Once I got pregnant with my daughter and what would be my last child everything would evolve from that moment and time moving forward. It would be important to not just be mindful of what I was eating but listening to, learn and everything I’d do. I no longer permed my hair well at least not while I was pregnant as this was a constant battle of the kinks after giving birth. I was conscious enough that it was an important step in teaching my daughter to love her hair as well as her black features the most high had blessed her with.
Let’s fast forward again, lol! I began to explore cooking more from scratch so I’d know the ingredients in the foods I was feeding my family and I even began making skincare products to solve her dry, itchy and sensitive skin needs. Now I’m on a new journey I’ve eliminated meat from my diet and now am working on diary! Yay sometimes you must be your own cheerleader. Can I get a rah, rah, lol. Well I hope you will stick around; be it to encourage, be encouraged or for all the resources you’ll find here as the site grows. I want you to know I appreciate you for stopping by and I look forward to next time!
