UPDATED: Healthful Journey - Special 6-Week Road Trip





Update: Soooooo, after "driving" a bit and studying my "map", I've decided on a little bit of a different trip. The reason being that I want to transition myself to a healthier lifestyle, while enjoying a few celebrations this month.  Also, I occasionally become anemic, and I wanted to add beans and legumes to support my own bio individuality. 

While this diet can be seen as a challenge or cleanse in some ways, it's really intended to be a special stretch of road on our healthful journey. This special stretch of road may be a little challenging to navigate at some points but it will spill you onto a beautiful road that you can travel on and on for as ever long as you'd like❤


I'm super excited to begin this because I always get a "nutritional high" when taking this wonderful kind of care of my body and mind. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean. It just feels so good. You can do this at any time of course, but if you'd like to join me on this special road trip, I've got the timing and directions for you below. I want to point out that while this isn't a weight loss diet, you will likely lose a little weight as you transition to a clean whole food based diet.


The trip is broken up into weeks, each week adding more foods to include in our healthier lifestyle. Personalize your trip to meet your bio-individual needs and personal preferences. Here we go😊
