I often post photos on Instagram and tag them as “real food”, but I realize that this term can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some people might say that all food is real food, but what I mean by this is that real food is food that is primarily unprocessed and does not include chemicals or additives. It’s very challenging to get these things 100% out of your diet, unless you make everything from scratch, but for the most part I make a concerted effort to remove these foods and choose others that are better alternatives.
Well we are now a few weeks into the third trimester and have passed the 30 week mark! I can hardly believe June is just around the corner and that’s the month before our due date. Things have felt so much more real lately since I’ve now had both of my baby showers (one in MA and one in NJ) and we are going to be starting on the nursery soon. I cannot wait to set up the room- I feel like it’s going to be my favorite part of the house!
Recently, I was chatting with one of my good friends and fellow Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. We were talking about how despite being Nutritional Therapists, we have both personally found more balance, ease and happiness thinking LESS (not more) about our food choices.
I can hardly believe that the next time I’ll be doing a recap I’ll be in the third trimester! Sometimes it feels like time is going slowly but then I’ll be looking at my Bump App on my phone and another week has suddenly flown by!
When people start getting into the field of natural health and wellness and researching their food, I think it’s only natural that after a while you start to also research the other items in your household. Our skin is our largest organ, and therefore what you put on your body and even what you breathe is very important for our overall health and wellness. For a few years, I mainly focused on the food I was eating, but after a while, this started to spill over into what I was putting on my body and what I was utilizing to clean my house.
