Hoping to live healthier in the coming year? I hope Peg’s story encourages you. Peg and her husband, Ron, are active retirees here in Arizona. It all started when they attended a fermentation class in 2013.
Peg’s Story: Healthy Living, Small Steps, and Big Changes
After the fermentation class, I began a journey that continues today. The information regarding how our bodies work and what’s needed to maintain natural health was, literally, life changing. Thus started my quest to begin making changes that might encourage a healthy gut.
During the course of a single year, I surprised myself with the changes. While I thought small changes were being made, I realized I’d made kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, laundry soap, sunscreen, and shea cream. I bought and used a number of essential oils, started dry body brushing, began buying some organic foods, bought a dehydrator . . . and probably more that I’ve missed. I have incorporated healthy oils, grains, nuts, sweeteners, etc., all without much thought—and have had fun in the process.
Three years later, my life and my pantry certainly look different! Here are a few of my recent projects.
It has been quite a journey. For anyone thinking about making healthy changes, it’s well worth the effort. AND my husband has enjoyed the changes! In fact, after the first year, Ron’s dermatologist asked what he’s doing differently because his skin looks so much better.
As for expense, I’m surprised how affordable these changes have been. Once you have things on hand, they go a long way!
Peg is right. Small steps lead to big changes.
One additional note: Peg has integrated some of these changes for her mother, who comes by daily for dinner. Her mom turns 92 this year!
What changes have you made in the last year? Do you relate to Peg’s story?
