I love shortcuts! Most of the time


Hi and happy Feel-Good Monday!

This is where we share our favorite tips, tricks, secrets, and ways to "think like a healthy person" so that you can find your own delicious path to healthy living.

"Feel-Good Mondays" are meant to help us get back into that place of feeling energized, nourished, and ready to take inspired action for the week ahead.  

Something really big happened last week: Rye took his very first steps!!

Rye walking for the first time!


Less than one week after his first birthday, our kiddo walked to his dad. The timing of his first steps isn’t all that monumental, but what’s crazy is that Rye can “walk” but he still doesn’t know how to crawl, sit up from laying down, or how to pull himself up to stand!

Yeah. It’s kind of insane.

Rye takes after me and my quick-start mentality and – admittedly – impatient ways :). Why crawl if you can walk?? Rye saw a shortcut and he took it. And it was glorious for him at first!

Except he can’t walk all that far when he falls down and can’t get back up again. And when he reaches for a toy and ends up on his belly when he stretches really far, he can’t get himself back up to sitting to enjoy it.

So while we’re celebrating along with Rye and cheering his new moves, there is definitely more work to be done. 😉

Experience has taught me that there are great shortcuts we can take with our health (quick and easy meal prep using pre-cut veggies! A personal fave!) and “shortcuts” that only lead to more work in the end (“dieting” as opposed to true lifestyle change).

We witness this a lot in our practice. To heal from lifelong digestive issues, sometimes a client can take an easy shortcut (simply cutting out a food that’s been inflaming their system). Other times, we have to go deep and work on healing the entire gut to get great results (repopulating beneficial bacteria, healing the stomach lining, improving acid production, etc).

I give you my full permission (and even encourage you!) to use shortcuts whenever you can. But when there’s real work to be done on your health and healing, and you want to go deeper with fundamental shifts that will transform your health, we’re here for you.

We specialize in figuring out the shortcuts you can take (extra work isn’t fun and it isn’t necessary for great results) and discovering where transformational work needs happen to reach your goals.

If you are ready to make big shifts in your health and wellbeing and want the instruction manual to help you get there, shoot us an email. We’ll get you there with lots of support, expert information, loads of fun, and yes – as many shortcuts as possible! 🙂
