Here we are, yet another start to a new year. It’s the time where I stop thinking about what has happened and focus on the potentials of the new year. For the most part, it can be an ever optimistic time but I think it’s easy to over promise and under deliver. There is so much hype for “now is the time” and words like “diet” are thrown around frivolously.
Instead of of talking about the extremes, I wanted to present you with another option this year. An option that while it may start in this new year can carry through for (hopefully) a lifetime: #eatnaturally. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t focus on the main food trends because at the end of the day, if something motivates a person to get into the kitchen and connect with their food, that’s awesome. #eatnaturally is all about taking small steps, ditching the processed foods, and doing what feels good for you.
I decided to start the new year out with this big post to hopefully get you motivated to join in eating naturally. Below are a few of my all-time favorite recipes from the site, a handful of bloggers that I look to for inspiration, and a new recipe (and video!) to start the year out right. I’d love it if you join me! If you share a photo on instagram, tag it #eatnaturally and #naturallyella. I’ll be sharing a few instagram photos on the site from time to time of what it looks like for others to #eatnaturally! During the month of January I’ll also have new recipes, book reviews, and a couple giveaways of items that make it easier for me to #eatnaturally.
