After the year we had, I swore that I would not make any kind of resolution at the end of December. I was grateful for sanity. Between working from home, managing the family and nurturing a new puppy, I wasn’t ready to make any kind of commitments. But, as I stood staring at the refrigerator, I realized that the one resolution that I’d be willing to make, had everything to do with me. I decided that I would continue to prioritize my own health and wellness in 2021.
Before I started leaning into plant-based nutrition, my idea of starting the day off on the right foot was all about a cup of coffee. I’m so grateful that I discovered the Splendid Spoon Wellness, Digestion and Detox Shots. Each morning starts with three ounces of pure goodness as the ingredients include many of the all-stars like moringa, spirulina, apple cider vinegar, turmeric and oregano extract. I’m glad they figured out the formula because I can promise you that I have zero time to measure ingredients and blend these shots for myself.
While working from home this year, I realized early on that I was replicating the same habits I had when I was in the office. I wasn’t having a proper lunch hour and I continued to eat at my desk. My body and I began fighting inflammation a few years ago and one of the reasons that I started feeling so much pain was because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was eating. I really do believe that when you know better, you do better. Splendid Spoon and their ready-made soups, grain bowls and noodles helped me make wiser food choices and that’s what I am going to count on in the New Year.
I get excited when a new box arrives. I have a lot of fun moving everything around in the refrigerator to make room for my ready-made plant-based treasures. I look forward to kicking off the New Year with two of my favorites, Roasted Cauliflower Bowl and Butternut Turmeric Soup. And did I mention how awesome it is to open the fridge and grab a smoothie without reaching for my blender? No slicing, no dicing. No excuses.
