The power of adding plants to your life!


Back Yard Farming Friday!!!!

The biggest irony of my life is that I’m plant based and I have chickens that lay lots of eggs, and I’ve never eaten one!  At this point if I was ever to go back to eating animal products I don’t think I could eat eggs again, the egg/pooh hole is one in the same….

I now present to you my girls doing what they do, turn up the volume and enjoy!



I am now a RoadID affiliate! What does that mean? Well if you are interested in buying a RoadID or any of their products click on the ad in the side bar and i get a few cents kicked back my way. Its a WIN WIN!! I wear mine everyday running or not,  think about any time you are out and who around you would know who to call in case of an emergency.  Chances are very few would know that info…. There are tons of styles and options to choose from.

Are you happy? What makes us happy?
I watched a TED Talk a while back about happiness and how to find true happiness not a backwards happiness that is only achieved once we get a result. This made me step back and have a personal innovatory of my own happiness…..
Our happiness shouldn’t be a sliding scale, I think or at least hope most of us are happy people, but how often do we find ourselves creating that sliding scale. “Losing that 5 lbs made me happy, but losing 15 lbs would make me sooo much happier and if I lost 30 lbs I would the happiest I’ve ever been….” And these can be interchange with anything in our lives be it a PR at a distance to a promotion at work and of course money. Now all of a sudden our happiness has stipulations and is part of the goal instead of the driving force in us that causes the goals to be achieved. Look at a child and what makes them happy compared to what makes you happy? This leads into a whole other conversation on what happened to us to lose that level of joy, and what we can do to stop this cycle….
This is the challenge I’m putting out to everyone that will help rewire our brains for the positive, it’s 21 days and super easy.
1. Write down 3 things you are grateful for, making sure to never repeat any over the 21 days. We do this to look at the positives in the world not the negatives.

2. Journaling about 1 positive experience you have had over the past 24 hours. This allows us to relive that moment.

3. Exercise of your choosing, this tell our brain that our behaviors matter.

4. Meditate, this will help us retain focus and get over the cultural ADHD that’s says we have to do 20 things at a time.

5. Random or Conscious act of kindness, when you open your email or social media pick a person and send them a message praising or thanking them.

That’s it! This can take you as little has 30 mins spread out over a whole day. If we can get our brains into the positive we will be more productive in every part of our lives by changing the formula for happiness and success. Share this get others in your social circles to try it with you and we can start a whole ripple effect of positivity!
Please leave comments on how its going during the 21 days and you can always get a hold of me with any question or comments at fat2plant(at)gmail(dot)com
