Just a quick check in, and "hello" to those of you who've noticed my absence (and over all inconsistency) as of late.
This year has proven to be a struggle in certain areas of my life, i.e. health and emotional well being. I'm not happy to admit this, but I believe that acknowledging these things is the first step in correcting them. I've neglected myself so much over these last few months, and in doing so unhappiness has seeped into just about every other area in my life. I'm finally at a breaking point though. A good breaking point. I don't want to miss out on all of the amazing things life has to offer, and I'm the only one in control of making the necessary change.
The reason why I'm sharing this with you is because I plan on making some temporary adjustments to AtV, and being a little more selfish with what type of recipes I post. In an effort to reconnect with the food I love I'll be focusing more on greens, smoothies, and snacks, while eliminating some of the more popular ingredients you're used to seeing me work with - specifically cashews (whomp whomp). I desperately need to jump start my metabolism and and regain the natural energy that was lost because of how poorly I've eaten through the Winter. I'm excited that I get to document this through AtV, because it feels so much like a fresh start. Yay for do-overs!
