Well hey there, remember me?!! I know, I know, it’s been a long time and you must wonder where I’ve been!
First things first, breakfast! Today I tried a new chia pudding, and I must say it’s delicious!
I had some dental work done a few days ago, so I’ve been eating soft food since to allow my mouth good time to heal. So I made a Strawberry Carob Chia Pudding, and blended it instead of letting the whole seed soak. Mmmmm… love chia!
Alright, let’s get back to where the heck I’ve been! Almost a month ago Marc and I left on a jet plane to one of our favorite places in the world… Maui. We spend two and a half amazing weeks in paradise, enjoying the beach, ocean, and most importantly, enjoying the rest.
I would tell you all the absolutely incredible things we did, all the sights we saw, of which I do have some to share in another post. But honestly, we really used this vacation to unplug and take a load off. Last year we explored all the things there was to see in Kauai, we were busy going from one place to the next. This year both of us desperately needed to relax. And relax we certainly did!
Something happened in the time we were gone. I became so far removed from everything going on back home, mostly by detoxing from social media (Twitter, Facebook, blogging), that it has become increasingly difficult to want to return to that. I’m not interested in who’s following me (or not following me) on Twitter, tweeting constantly about my daily nuances, or wondering if anyone is reading my blog (those numbers were taking over!). In all honesty, I’m not sure what that means at the moment. It’s taking me much longer to settle into a routine now that we are home, and maybe that’s a good thing.
I feel that this is a chance to delve deep and find what I truly want to spend my time doing. A major theme that has been resonating with me since our trip is learning to relax, finding ways to de-stress and regroup in my every day life, not just on vacation. Quite a number of people have said things that have pointed me in that direction, I believe that God is using those people and certain events to speak into my life.
In terms of this blog, that I only just started a few months ago, I’m going to slow things down and take my time. It’s not fair to you or me if I push out posts that are not inspired or end up completely impersonal. As my wonderful and inspiring friend and fellow blogger advised, ‘ Don’t rush it. Ease back into your life and the urge to blog will happen again.’
I hope that you will understand that it may take a while to take a real honest look at what the future of Edible Balance is, and that you will stick around to find out!
In the meantime, I would love it if you checked out Meghan Telpner‘s blog, Making Love in the Kitchen for a guest post I wrote a while ago! Even for me, it’s a great reminder that in order to take care of YOU, you have to decide what you are going to do to take charge of your health. Whatever that means in your life, whether it’s food, exercise, faith/meditation, or rest (or all of the above?!).
Eating healthy, and making the right choices doesn’t have to be hindrance or a restriction. It can be quite liberating! Yes, even your food intolerances, allergies, can be freeing
Question of the day: What choice will you make today for YOU?
