Trusting One’s Gut

So I’ve been checking out a lot of cookbooks from the library lately. For inspiration, health, and information. I’ve had low back pain for weeks which has just recently relented. And my gut instinct is telling me that at least part of it is related to diet. 
I liked this one so much that I purchased it:
The Wellness Mama Cookbook by Katie Wells

It’s got a lot of gluten free items as well as kid friendly meals. The coconut flour biscuits are some of the best gluten free biscuits I’ve ever made – and they are quick and easy to make.

Digestive Health With Real Food: A Practical Guide to An Anti-inflammatory, Low-irritant, Nutrient-dense Diet for IBS & Other Digestive Issues by Jacob Agalee

This book has a lot of good information but not as many inspiring recipes. 

The Anti-inflammation Cookbook: The Delicious Way to Reduce Inflammation and Stay Healthy by Amanda Haas

This cookbook has lots of pretty pictures and some recipes I want to try.

The Food Lover’s Cleanse: 140 Delicious, Nourishing Recipes That Will Tempt You Back Into Healthful Eating by Sara Dickerman

And this book has even more recipes I’d like to try. I like how this book is arranged seasonally. It has recipes and menus for a two week cleanse that can be done at any time of the year – just flip to the right season. And the recipes just look like good yummy food, not things one might think of when one thinks of a cleanse (lots of raw vegetables, lemons, juices, algae, etc).

Raising my Frequency

So I’ve been listening to an awesome book – You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero. I love this author and everything she has to say.

I’ve checked out the book from the library and have been listening to it as much as I can while in the car – commuting, running errands, etc… I’ve also ordered the print book from the library to start doing more of the exercises at home to raise my frequency with universal knowledge.

One of the things that resonates with me about this book is that the author has lived most of her life without having enough dough, dinero, moolah, currency to live her most badass version of her life. She became rich by changing her attitude and beliefs about money. (She also did a lot of scary uncomfortable things along the way to get her out of her comfort zone.)

I am a firm believer in beliefs and everything I’ve been hearing in this book resonates with me. So part of my journey is getting outside of my comfort zone in various ways, including posting more frequently to this poor neglected blog. I’m also doing this for the first time on a tablet- so that’s a bit uncomfortable as well… Here it goes….
