😄 I finally got the all-in-one produce shot! 🍅🍆🥦🍠 Check out these giant mushrooms! 🍄
I realized today just how much my thinking has shifted. In the not-so-long-ago past, we would get just the odd thing from the Saturday market and buy the rest from supermarkets during the week. It was part of this scary culture of ‘convenience’ and ‘on-the-go’. Now I simply cannot imagine doing a big weekly or monthly grocery shop at the supermarket. The idea almost physically hurts me. We’ve adapted well to the weekly market thing and know better what to buy, how much of it, and we also store foods better and work even harder at reducing wastage. We aren’t anywhere close to 100% but we’re going and growing!
That being said, this lifestyle isn’t about slogging away and making things as difficult as possible. I think the hardest part is deprogramming ourselves, taking that look in the mirror in order to face and reassess our actions and choices. Forming new habits that align with how we actually want to live and impact the earth we inhabit are easier and become even easier afterwards.
Everything doesn’t have to be done overnight - that can be overwhelming and unconstructive in some cases. So, just start by doing one thing that would make an impact and bring you one step closer to living in accordance with your true feelings and principles.
I don’t mean that in an airy-fairy way. If you look at the bigger picture and find that you are not actually ok with littered sidewalks, plastic-filled whales 🐳, forcibly impregnated and maltreated cows 🐄 ... just ditch using straws, take your own bag to the store and choose unpackaged goods, leave dairy to the calves ... pick something where you can make some impact and don’t be another one of the millions of people who are ‘too busy’. We’re all busy, we’re all in our little bubbles racing along, but we could really stand to look up every now and then and do a bit of a double-take before scurrying along. •

I love starting the day with an early morning run and it’s even better when I come back to a smoothie bowl such as this one! It’s made of my usual favorites, frozen raspberries, avocado, mango, and banana and because I made a big batch for the whole family, I added my own toppings to make it even more complete. Ground flax seeds, cacao nibs, and coconut flakes add to the taste and nutrient content. Yay! Happy Saturday!! J’adore courir le matin, dès que je me réveille, c’est tellement énergisant. C’est encore mieux lorsque je peux revenir de ma course et me préparer un bol smoothie comme celui-ci! Il est fait avec framboises surgelées, avocat, mangue et banane. Puisque j’en ai fait une grosse portion pour toute la famille, j’ai ajouté mes propres garnitures sur le dessus de mon bol. Graines de lin moulues, éclats de cacao crus ainsi que flocons de noix de coco grillée ajoutent du croquant et ils rendent le smoothie encore plus complet!! Bon samedi 😊*
