Life has been quite the roller coaster the last couple months. One thing I have learned about myself is how transparent I apparently am. Transparency can be a good thing or a bad thing in some cases. What you do with that knowledge is the question.
Originally I had started working with Evan of Not Just Paleo for my adrenal fatigue issues. Shortly after that I went to work for a Functional Medicine Clinic. After seeing how they treat patients who come to them for help with health issues I kind of put Evan on the back burner. I wanted the doctor I was working with to take a look at my lab work and tell me what course of treatment she thought I should do. Well that would have been nice if we had the time to sit down and go over my lab work. I worked with this practice for 6 weeks until my return from vacation last week. Things didn’t work out well between us and I decided to part ways with them. I had thought this was my opportunity to break into the field of health I felt so passionate about. It turned out to be quite a different experience and all I can do is learn from the experience and move forward. Things happen in life for a reason, and there is definitely a lesson to be learned.
While this turn of events is disappointing, it’s just a detour leading me to a new path. Or, to continue a path that I am already taking. So i’m settling in to my new apartment while looking for a new job in the meantime. I have to say that the kitchen in my new place is nice and spacious allowing me to get more creative in the kitchen. I also learned of a book from one of my fellow bloggers called The Flavor Bible. How have I not heard of this book before? It’s like a library of what food or ingredients go well with a main ingredient that you are working with. It really helps in creating new recipes and I cannot tell you how excited I am to use this book going forward.
This brings me to my next adventure. I recently joined an 8 week blogging bootcamp. A what? It’s kind of like chopped for food bloggers without getting chopped. You get a box full of ingredients that you are then challenged to use in the creation of a recipe. Now I will tell you that there are some ingredients that are not considered paleo like beans and steel cut oats. The upside to these ingredients is that they are good quality whole food ingredients. While these ingredients are not paleo, I don’t want you to think that I am turning my back on the paleo lifestyle. I am simply challenging myself to grow as a food blogger and recipe developer. So I hope you will stick with me and support me in the opportunity to grow and offer you more in the year to come.
While I am settling into my new apartment and looking for a new job, I will be getting back into the kitchen so I can start bringing you more content. I do want to thank you for following the blog. Without all of you I wouldn’t have a reason to do everything that I am doing.
