Well dear friends....I am home! Things have been a bit crazy since my last update(as if my last update was NOT crazy enough?) In summary, we added MORE excitement to the adventure with an unexpected Life-Flight of my 17 year old step-son from Northwest Arkansas to Little Rock w/high fever of 107. Needless to say, the book completion was put on hold until August as we get settled back in at home and I detox myself from the stress, travel, and the few dietary indulgences that occurred. Cupcakes for lunch (TWICE)....can you say STRESS EATING? However, I must tell you that there is THE sweetest little cupcake shop in Rogers, Arkansas that not only offers homemade treats but also sincere kindness and prayers. Thank you ladies for the prayers for my father in law and my step knew exactly what my heart, soul and tastebuds needed with that Red Velvet :-) It was worth the bellyache that I endured on my hike that day. I also know that your family recently endured a loss and you have been in my heart since our conversations. Sorry, had to meander a bit about my new favorite cupcake ladies!

So, now at home I am working on my own RESTORE program....I am my own worst client, really!. I have gotten back to my Barefoot Running and my MovNat excursions and look forward to getting my physical AND mental self back on track. I always talk about that FOOD and MOOD connection- But, WOW I sometimes forget the enormity of it until I venture away from my typical clean and primitive lifestyle.

Join me for lots of recipes and programs over the next few weeks- if anyone else needs a little summers end RESTORE. Off to start a 3 day micro-nutrient feast (AKA green juice fast). Hows your summer going?

By the way....before I go, I need to share the link for the shoes that I got while away. That are a minimalist huarache style that can be worn/tied 1000 different ways. The straps come in a variety of colors/prints. I love that they are so very DIVA'ish and support a very good cause:
