Hey Loves,
It seems like yesterday that I was introduced to the lovely Miss Jasmine Crowe at an award show honoring Toya Wright for her philanthropic work in the Black Community. I can’t believe it was a year ago I vowed to work with Jasmine in giving of my time and services as a parent liaison or mental health counselor to children. Unfortunately, I had just started my PhD classes and my time was limited with my other volunteer activities with the American Red Cross and Dress for Success Atlanta. However as time would have it Jasmine is hosting her award show again and this time she is honoring Tamika Raymond and other philanthropists and organizations for their diligent work and support in our community.

Unfortunately I missed out on most of the award ceremony (flat tire) but I still showed up and better yet I now have my schedule worked out wherein I can start giving back to our community and pouring into children who can and will grow up to be like me or achieve more than me.

At the end of the night I was glad I came out to support and solidify my promise to give back.

Giving up the title “Queen of Junk”

Hey Loves,
As the days go by I try to eat healthier, by trying to reduce the amount of foods that include sugar, salt and wheat. To my dismay no matter how the day starts off good once I sit down to work I start craving junk food. So I have been training my mind to like fruits such as cherries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries…..even bought a bowl made just for berries (lol). I must say I will eat them all and still crave all the junk in the pantry or refrigerator.  A bowl of ice cream and a slice of cake will do me just fine and I will read and write until the wee hours of the morning.  Lack of sleep, almost no exercise or activity and constantly eating junk while working and studying at home packed on the weight.  When my dresses got tighter, I moved up a few dress sizes I realized how curvy I had become yet my patterns was yet to change.

I would have my almost vegan/vegetarian dish comprising of just vegetables and sometimes a bit of pasta or mashed potatoes and once in a while some seafood.

image

I don’t cook much chicken unless I am grilling/jerking chicken for a barbecue, however I will eat chicken when I am dining out and not certain as to what I should eat.
wwwwwooooooooooowwwweeeeeeee lately my allergies have been all out of sorts limiting my exposure to the sun, most foods gives me a tingly reaction in the back of my throat and I am learning to read labels as most packaged items contain more than you would think for shelf life. This Spring I was sick repeatedly only to find the culprit was not 100% natural juice as the label mentioned.

image

I will never drink another naked drink in my life, it is poisonous to my body when I wanted to eat better I thought it would help me instead it made me truly sick for over 3 weeks, urgent care and doctor visits. I♡me too much to ever poison my body…..on that note I had a food allergy test done and to my amazement my body was full of toxins as I was poisoning and shocking my body on a daily basis. Foods that should be good for me was of high intolerance by my body.  My vegan/vegetarian meals would have to change and so would my snacks.  Uh oh Food Management….I am giving up my title I am no longer the Queen of junk!!

image

My fruits are neatly sliced up for juicing or smoothies and they are quite tasty/delicious but I can’t have some of them either so the types of fruits and vegetables I use will be different going forward after today. This detox homemade fruit/vegetable drink:
celery, orange, apple, ginger, beet, cucumber, and carrots. Gives a full day worth of vitamins and minerals to one’s body and helps to remove some toxins from ones body.

image

As much as I love these fruits and vegetables and the wonderful concoction derived from their mix

image

I must remove those to which my allergic reaction are medically high and are an intolerance by my body such as: beets, oranges, lemons, and apples. Beets were supposed to help improve my low iron condition since I have never eaten red meat my entire life……oh well at least I tried. It hurts mentally to make such a big change in my diet and having to be conscientious of labels however I understand life is too short to live hurting from poor food choices. ****So long to intolerant foods and junk!!

The weight has started to lift it’s ugly heads since I have been more careful in what I put in my tabernacle. ..I am allergic to lemon so there will be no lemon pepper wings, no lemons in my water and no lemon cake!!!
