Eating to Feel Good from The Makerista
Health and wellness are something you certainly take for granted when you’re healthy. I used to eat whatever, whenever and really saw no consequence from my habits and indulgences. But four years ago I was in a place that prompted a journey of better eating. From bladder issues to bad skin, I’ve searched for answers in all areas. What made the most sense for me was to question what I was putting into my body. I get asked quite frequently what I eat/how I maintain my body, and it’s been a long process of trial and error to get where I am today. I’m not currently working out, not necessarily proud of that but this season of life is very busy and I chalk up carrying a baby up and down stairs all day as definitely a work out. As far as nutrition, I’ve tried being plant-based, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo…you name it, I’ve probably tried it in the search to feel better and look better adult acne is the worst. And this is what works for me.

So it should come as no surprise that the first thing I do when I get out of bed each morning is walk downstairs, fill the electric kettle (I’m not one to promote unnecessary consumption but if you haven’t upgraded your stovetop kettle to the adjustable temperature pour-over kettle— WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?) (not only do you get to control the water temperature (!) but the body and handle design make for a super smooth pour), and drink a big glass of room temperature water while I wait for the other water to boil. Once the water is ready, I make my favorite cup of pour-over and savor it from the comfort of our couch (or bed). I do this every single morning of every single day and it’s been my routine for as long as I can remember. Even on days when we have to be out of the house by 6AM, I’ll wake up an hour before Thom just to ensure I get that little chunk of quiet time to myself.
