How are you doing? Please any way you can, be compassionate towards yourself and towards others during these weird, weird times.
When news of the serious spread of Covid-19 hit I immediately set to work with the team to pull together a set of resources to address the fact that a lot of us have upped our food stocks, stockpiled medicine and most likely felt fearful of the unknown and the uncertainty. But the thing is, this is such a wonderful opportunity to remind ourselves of some of those basic low tox food and home principles:
- Eat simple whole foods
- Plan well to avoid waste and reduce food costs
- Make freezer meals for those crazy full days where you can avoid caving into vegetable-oil-drowned takeaways, knowing a nourishing meal is a quick reheat away
- Find beauty in simplicity and take this space to reconnect with what’s truly important.
We have a real opportunity here to keep calm and get nourishing and with that comes the support and protection of our magnificent immune systems during a time when we need them most. Panic buying packet foods might seem the right thing to do because everyone’s doing it, but make a tea, grab a pen, write a list and plan your nourishment.
Nourishing food, relaxing cooking and prepping with good tunes on and a cuddle from a loved one is really where it’s all at when the world outside your window seems crazy hard. Maybe the world INSIDE your window seems crazy hard right now too, and to you all, I send hugs, compassion, and if I were there with you I’d pour you a glass of water and sit with you. If you need that right now, don’t be ashamed to ask for it – even if it’s connecting virtually through Zoom or Skype. I’ve had a couple of lunch dates via Zoom instead of cancelling good friends and it’s actually been lovely and good for the soul.
RESOURCES TO SUPPORT YOU THROUGH COVID-19
I hope these are helpful to you and please do share any challenges you’re having. We’ve started with food, and we’ll be doing an environmental toxin, body and home focus next week x
Low Tox. Happy bodies. Happy Planet.
