So we recently chatted about fat-soluble vitamin A and how if you want your body to absorb all of the brilliant benefits this vitamin provides, then you had to consume it with fat.  Fact!

 

Today, it's all about vitamin D . . .

One of the main reasons my body is now thriving since embracing fat, I believe, is since I now include a good source of it with every one of my meals, my body’s now able to absorb all those wonderful and essential fat-soluble vitamins that I went for years (even decades) without absorbing.  They’re not called fat-soluble vitamins for nothing - and they say nutrient deficiencies can lead to autoimmune disease…..hello Hashimoto’s!!!

 

 

FOCUS: April

FOCUS:  April

 

I’m saying au revoir to March over here and starting to focus my energies into April.

 

Unsure what I’m talking about?  Well, on New Year’s Eve I decided to NOT set myself any goals/intentions for the year ahead, as they’re usually forgotten just as quickly as they were made, and instead set some intentions for me to focus on each month through the use of tarot and angel cards . . . and I’m loving it.  I find that by focussing on just one month at a time, I’m staying present and mindful for the entire month.  It’s so much more sustainable and I feel like I’m actually being productive and effective.  Interested in seeing my earlier month’s intentions/focus, then just click here (January – February – March).

 

For me, March was a bit of a tough month as I just recently placed my mum into a nursing home.  As you can imagine, there were highs, many lows and a lot of stress.  Luckily, she seems to be really enjoying the change and in hindsight, I wish I’d done it earlier, but then that’s the beauty of hindsight, isn’t it.  Interestingly, my March Focus was all about nurturing myself.  A time to enjoy the little things - quality over quantity, and a time for looking after and pampering myself, relaxing into it and not fighting it.  

 

So now it’s over to April, and what’s in store . . .
