I’m doing something uber fun today! Danielle from Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme recently asked if she and her blog-mate, Laura, could interview me for their Real People Wednesday series. I said, “Absolutely!”
Danielle has been around Growing Up Triplets for a while – we’ve chatted by email about how-tos on this or that. ( <—- Psst! I love it when you guys, my readers, email me! You make me think and work my brain – I love that! So, don’t be shy! Use the comments section, email, Facebook, Google+ – and of course Pinterest, Twitter…oh, yeah, Instagram! That’s a new one for me but I’m thinking convos won’t be really long there. ) These girls’ knowledge about all things food and living naturally is exciting! I love it. And I think you’re going to enjoy their blog.
Here’s a sneak peek:
Q: Tell us about your story and journey with being healthy and natural living. Has this always been important to you? When did it become so?
A: You know, I remember the first time I heard the term “organic.” I’d shopped for a friend and she commented that I’d gotten organic foods and did I know that. I didn’t. I didn’t know what “organic” meant! That was probably 7 or 8 years ago. Fast forward a couple years later and I was in a car accident. I went to a fantastic chiropractor where I didn’t just get my “back cracked” but I was taught exercises that strengthened my core, spine, etc. While doing these exercises in-office, we saw documentaries. These changed my life. I quit drinking Diet Coke (about 48+ oz daily) cold turkey. I bought raw milk and cheese. I bought grassfed beef. But I didn’t really “know” what I believed.
…A couple years later and things like soaking grains, fermenting foods, cooking from scratch and the *why* behind it all is, well, old hat. It fits like a comfortable glove, this natural living. Recently I shared on Facebook that I hadn’t gotten my post-move groove back till I was fermenting something!
So, head on over and check out the rest. Who knows? Maybe you’ll learn some new things about me.
