Honesty hour: Sometimes, I get a little caught up in my lifestyle choices and changes that I forget to pause, look at those who showed me the way, and say thank you.

I choose to eat as responsibly as I can; my Pappou had been doing it forever. During a quick visit home, I helped him harvest his garden. In about 25 square feet, he manages to grow cucumbers, tomatoes (a few varieties), peppers, and vlita.

He didn’t need to have a doctrine, or know about the environmental effects of large scale farming, or be a member of PETA to want to grow his own food. He’s just always know it makes sense to respect Earth. He was raised in a mountain village where life was deeply tied to the Earth and has passed that understanding down to me.

My heart and soul (and belly!) are full of gratitude for my many everyday blessings.
