About the Nourish Evolution
I’ve discovered that, while everyone’s journey is unique, there is a well-trod path when making the shift from processed food to real food — what I call the NOURISH Evolution. Watch this video for a tour:
The Five Stages of the NOURISH Evolution
Blissfully Blind Prairie: the first step in a NOURISH Evolution — or really, a “pre-step.” It’s where everyone begins, eating whatever is in the path of least resistance and having no desire to change.
The Pinnacles of Shouldangst: the stage in the NOURISH Evolution when you realize the consequences of the path of the Blissfully Blind Prairie. There is a compulsion to change, but not much will, and not much know-how.
The Hump: the “something” that moves you out of the Pinnacles of Shouldangst on the NOURISH Evolution towards greater change. Often, though not always, a “ life event.” Find out what got me over The Hump>
Peaks and Valleys of Practice: the process of developing new habits through trial and error when making the shift from processed to real food.
The Land of NOURISH: when your default is cooking — and thoroughly enjoying — real food … within the complications and constraints of real life.
Everything I do on NOURISH Evolution is about helping you move forward on your NOURISH Evolution, while keeping that compassionate, patient, curious mindset that will fuel long-term change (you can find out more about my NOURISH Evolution here).
