This first week of 2013 has been one of reflection. Last year was hard, intense, yet awesome. I shared it with the one that I love the most and we kicked butt in many ways. As with many things I am hoping to tackle the newness of this year slightly shifted, changed, evolved…I am hoping to be bettered focused this year. More grateful and consciously taking note of growth. Tomorrow I will start the Whole30 Challenge. I am hoping to learn more about my body and the art of discipline. This recipe is not Whole30 but nonetheless its wholesome, from my garden, and delicious.
