Paleo Reset Day 19

Repeat after me: self care is NOT selfish! self care is NOT selfish! self care is NOT selfish!

Why do we struggle to take time out to care for ourselves? If we're empty what do we have to give? Did someone say Christmas? Today, I ignored the slight niggle of guilt. Well truthfully, the roar, and spent a delicious whole hour on myself.

Reflexology and acupuncture.

My feet were held and massaged and my body was nourished.

Nourished - an Interesting choice of word !

In order to be the happiest, healthiest version of yourself, you’ve got to learn how to nourish yourself in more ways than simply what you put in your mouth. It starts here. Eating paleo, going sugar free has given me space to breathe and reconnect with myself and my feelings. Sugar, food, treats are an easy sticking plaster over what you really want, what you really need. Give yourself time to breathe and explore what it is you are looking for,

And don't compromise ever!

Breakfast today was another protein shake with a handful of our fresh organic microgreens, C8 and Floradix

Nourishing, colourful food, so tasty & paleo!

Lunch was a sausage sizzler!

Using our fabulous keto-friendly meatballs instead of our keto sausages, lots of baby spinach and a fried egg ontop!

Focus on the green leafy veg, lots of bang for your buck!

Supper was a quick chicken curry using a home made curry paste (to cut out the sugar)!

Ready in under 10 minutes and just 5 ingredients!

So that was Day 19 over and done. The key to ongoing success on my paleo journey has been avoiding complicated recipes and keeping food simple, natural and filling. There was a new piece of self-knowledge held: self-care is not selfish!

How do you take time out to nourish yourself?
