We repeat what we don’t repair
How do you solve a problem for good?
- You identify the root cause
- Become aware of what’s not working
- Get curious about other possibilities
- Make changes
The root cause of common health conditions is the food we eat on a daily basis.
Eating whole plant foods helps bring the body into balance.
Eating meat, dairy, and overly processed foods makes it harder for the body to do its job, resulting in a wide range of health issues.
In our community, I see people’s lives changing all the time when eating more plants and less of everything else. Some of the changes I see are more energy, better sleep, reduced medication, glowing skin, less insulin resistance, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, released weight, better eye health, fewer seasonal allergies, lower A1C, more mental clarity, less joint pain, less fatigue, the list goes on.
That’s all well and good, but for some of us, it’s also like, yeah, no shit.
Most of us know eating healthier is a good idea. Most of us know that stuffing handfuls of shredded cheese, french fries, and chocolate-covered everything in our mouth holes isn't doing us any favors.
Knowing something isn’t always enough to change it, though.
How many times have you started a new healthy habit only to stop a few weeks later and go even further in the opposite direction of where you want to be?

Knowing isn’t enough. You have to get to the root cause of why you’re not following through. The root cause of procrastination. The root cause of self-doubt. The root cause of excuses. The root cause of self-sabotage.
Only when you get to the root of it can you make permanent changes that feel like a whole-body yes instead of a constant uphill battle.
We repeat what we don’t repair.
The root cause of our ineffective actions or inability to take action is the thoughts we think on a daily basis.
Do you know why this is GLORIOUS fucking news?
Because you, and only you, are in charge of your thoughts.
If you’re struggling to eat healthier, stop focusing on the food and start focusing on your thoughts. The food part will fall into place once you get your brain on board.
