“You’re too nice, it’s off-putting”. These words struck me in such a strange way. They left me feeling both embarrassed and insulted, stuck in a weird limbo, reviewing all of the once positive memories that led to that comment.
Let’s rewind – as someone who temps and freelances for a living, I often have a performance review at the end of a contract. My positive attitude has always been a point of highlight, but this time it was apparently a point of pain.
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease almost four years ago, and the changes it fostered in my world have been both sorrowful and incredible. One of the most amazing and joyful, healthy changes have revolved around food! My food philosophies have evolved so completely that Sara circa 2012 would scoff at me (whilst scarfing down Tim Tams and guzzling root beer).
But how exactly did I make such healthy changes (and how can you do it too?)
I’m late with my weekly love this weekend; I got hit by a nasty cold bug and I’ve been nursing myself back to health. That means lots of rest, lots of self-care and a ton of hydration – especially with filling, nutritously awesome, healthy smoothies. Everything else has been placed lovingly on the back burner.
Want to join me on the healthy smoothie train? I’ve got some awesome recipes for you below!
