Noodles for everyone!

For the past month you’ve likely found me writing and talking about my love of foods the hues of the rainbow. But I wasn’t always so colorful.

When I was a kid, white was my favorite food color. (One day soon I’ll share an ode to toastthat I wrote in my early thirties. At this point my tastes had diversified, but I still loved the bland, the sticky, the gooey, the crunchy and the colorless.)

You may hold a tight grip on your childhood comfort foods and, I promise, I’m no different. Even though I currently follow a primarily grain-free diet, I still get a hankering for my bread, crackers and especially noodles.

Who among us doesn’t love noodles? Oodles and oodles of them!

the raw and the cooked of it

Sometimes the nutrition world feels like a land of controversy.

I bet you know what I mean, and often find yourself wondering just who to pay attention to.

There are hundreds of “nutrition experts” (all with conflicting advice), new books each week offering the best diet ever, and friends or family claiming they’ve found the holy grail (and you should try it too).

There’s an abundance of healing protocols claiming to cure a long list of ailments. This one? That one? What’s an informed eater to do?

You hold the key to your own transformation

I’m a big believer in the body’s innate ability to heal.

In many ways, it’s this idea that lights the way for so many of our clients to step into their own unique healing journey. People often come into the Replenish Counseling fold having tried many other avenues including various healing protocols, dietary approaches, other practitioners, lifestyle changes and much more.

Honestly, it can be daunting to make sense of it all that’s been done, all that’s left to do, and all that is still felt, still unresolved.

It can feel a bit like picking up a box of puzzle pieces and having no idea which is the logical first piece. Amidst such a hodge-podge of signs, symptoms, strategies and stalemates, you might wonder where I begin when it seems as though someone has tried everything?
