Busy as a Bee and Loving It: An Update!

Howdy folks! 

As you may have noticed, it's been awhile since the last time I posted. It's been a very busy couple of months here at Casa de Poor and Vegan. Thankfully, though, it's been the good kind of busy! 

I've been working hard to make sure that this is my Best Year Ever, so I haven't had as much time to write as I would like.  I've also been working on some big, exciting things to share with you!

One of the biggest, most exciting things consuming my time these days  is my work towards becoming a certified nutritional therapist.  I'm learning so much about the human body, and how our diets can affect our health. (You may have seen a few photos on Instagram of some of my reading materials.) It is a lot of work, but it is work that I don't mind doing. I truly enjoy learning new things, and I am passionate about health -mine and yours!  My hope is that all of this learning will, in turn, allow me to help us all to live a healthier, happier life, and make informed decisions regarding our diets.

One of the main things I've learned so far is that we are all unique, and so are our dietary needs! No single diet is suitable for all people!  Even in the case of twins, who share identical DNA, one diet may not be suitable for both people. Things such as our environment, our work, our daily rituals, and more, are all things that can impact our dietary needs! That said, when considering the best diet for yourself or a family member, keep in mind that what works for you may not necessarily work for someone else. 

Stay tuned for more tips and recipes in the coming weeks. I even have a restaurant review coming up for you!

Thanks for reading, my friends - I sincerely appreciate each and every one of you!
