So often we treat our health like fads; we’ll do a 4 week diet, we’ll join a 6 week boot camp, we’ll do a 5 day cleanse, we got the piezowave therapy machine | MacSons Health, you get the idea. I’m not saying these things don’t have their place – they do, they are great at getting people motivated and on the right track, but to me health is so much more than a 4 week fad…it’s a journey.
A health journey really is about making changes to your lifestyle and assuming the role of student. It’s all about empowering ourselves to take control of our own health and make constructive changes. Everyones health journey is unique and different. Along my own journey I’ve learnt some key things that I wanted to share to help you on your own.
It’s a process.
In the world of health there is no such thing as a quick fix. Taking control of your own health is a process that will take time. There will be ups and downs, you’ll probably take a few steps back and have days when you feel down, but hey, it’s called a journey! Once you throw the quick fix mentality out the door you’ll realise that the changes you’re making and knowledge your gaining about your own body is going to empower you for life and those around you.
PUT IT INTO ACTION: Ditch the quick fix mentality. A health journey is just as much a mental change as it is a physical. I find it really beneficial to have 10 minutes each morning where I just meditate or sit quietly focusing on my breathing. It may seem simple but having this time to slow down and reconnect really helped me stop racing through everything in life and appreciate the moments in front of me.
Everything is connected.
With all the heart specialists and lung specialists, ear, throat and nose specialists and countless other specialists, it’s easy to think that the body functions in separate ways. It doesn’t. Our body is one organism, meaning if we’re always getting sick it isn’t medicine we need to take, but we need to look holistically and consider how we’re nourishing our bodies, mind and spirit. Once we understand that everything is connected we can truly start to heal our whole selves.

The Bachelor, Pate, Houser, Mardi Gras, Jambalaya, and Wife Material!
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
I make my own Cajun seasoning with this… 2 tsp salt, 2tsp paprika, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 ¼ tsp dried oregano, 1 ¼ tsp dried thyme, ½ tsp of red pepper flakes – I used this on other dishes as well.
1 1b of turkey kielbasa
1 diced onion
1 green bell pepper
2 celery stalks
3 cloves of fresh garlic
1 ¼ cup of uncooked brown rice
2 ½ cups of chicken broth, I used low sodium and added seasoning where needed
1 16 oz can of Italian crushed tomatoes
Dash of Worcestershire
In a large Dutch oven or skillet, sauté onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic until tender with olive oil, when veggies start becoming soft add sausage. Stir in crushed tomatoes, and add Cajun seasoning, stir in the rice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed
**Divide into 6 servings
I like to serve this with a big green salad and Ice tea!!
Carbohydrates: 22 (11 from rice, the rest from veggies)
Fat: 6 grams
**Tip – If you absolutely do not want to do rice, I understand! Make this a stew and add zucchini, squash, more bell pepper, mushrooms and your favorite veggies to cut out the starch!
