The prepared woman . . .

01 Jan

Crossed over into the new year with a sense of obligation to myself.  Although I brought with me zeal and excitement for the things ahead – new adventures, thoughts, finally tapping into my creative juices…I also brought the reality of hyperthyroidism, with its accompanying fatigue, weight loss, and discomfort because of a metabolism gone haywire.  You see, with hopes for a new year and new beginnings, we also bring some of the things that we wished stayed behind at the stroke of midnight.    While I anticipate great things for “The Prepared Table,” my first focus will always be on making sure the woman behind the brand is prepared – and for me that starts with my health.  I embark this year taking a good hard look at what I can do to give my body what it needs to heal itself, to nurture itself, so that it can give me the optimum quality of life that all my hopes and dreams deserve.  So as I look forward to preparing your table, I will first use my wisdom and insight I have about food to build a prepared and healthy woman, one bite at a time, at my own table.  Happy New Year!

    I am really looking forward to this journey. I have been dealing with thyroid deseas for quite some time. I am going to the grocery store to begin tempering my mind and body, and pantry for the fast. This is a true blessing to me. Do I need a food processor?

      If I had to have only one kitchen appliance, a food processor would be it. I use my food processor to make my smoothies, chop veggies, puree soups, so it really would be a good idea to consider buying one. If you do, get a Cuisinart brand one. I have had mine for YEARS and they really hold up and work beautifully.

      I am on this journey with you Reshonda! If you need any help or have questions, just ask. I have dealt with thyroid issues myself for a long time and it has been a rollercoaster ride. But I know, for me, I have to find out what is triggering it, and food is where I am starting. By the way, research has determined there is a connection between gluten allergies and thyroid issues…my doctor had mentioned this to me too, so for myself, I am cutting out all wheat and eating gluten free. Google it on the web. It is very interesting information. Much success to you Reshonda!
