fresh food, never SPAM

My July Food Journal

3 Cities + 2 flights + 1 major food holiday (plus 3 days of continual Alaskan sunlight) = this week’s diet: all over the place, literally.

I’m excited to start this series off on the road which is when my diet most imbalanced. (but still far from unhealthy). For me that means more inorganic produce, animal products, artificial sugars and processed foods than normal. Eating while traveling has two sides; while enjoying the local flavor can be fun, the potential effects afterwards may not be. For me that included a major skin breakout and other bodily oddities that I won’t mention. Side-note, the air and water is likely to blame too. #itsallconnected

Anywho, if you’ve spoken with me or attended one of my Superfood School events then you’ve heard me stress the importance of maintaining a whole-food, plant-based kitchen in your home. It’s a helpful tactic for when you are out and don’t have as much as control on where your food comes from.

For all of the “junk food” this week, I had just as much fresh fruits and vegetables, in fact I lucked out and arrived just in time to take advantage of my family’s garden.

Check out this space in the coming weeks as I will be updating this page with more entries as well as recipes. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram for more food-spiraton.
