As I mentioned, I am new to blogging and since I am going to take some of my (limited) down time to share information here, I want it to be focused and helpful to those who are reading it (and for me to refer back to)!! As I thought about this, I wanted to find a way to express what I am trying to communicate overall. Wellness is one word I could use to encompass this blog, but I think it is more than that. In the past year and especially in the past few months, I have had to think about wellness in a whole new way - a heightened awareness around how to keep both me and my family WELL (physically, emotionally, financially, etc.) I had to elevate wellness in my life. So, my mission is to elevate wellness through this blog - to share this sense of awareness around wellness that has come to be a part of my day-to-day life. Again, food and recipes that cater to kids' health, especially those with food allergies and intolerances, will be the focus. But beyond that, as moms, dads, and busy professionals, how do we keep ourselves well while balancing our day-to-day? I plan to write about my ongoing journey on this front, too.
What is really cool is that after drafting this blog post, I was able to secure the Twitter account @elevatewellness. I was apprehensive about Twitter at first but have found it to be a quick one-stop resource for news, recipes, health-related articles, etc. So, if you are a Twitter user, follow me @elevatewellness! I will share my blog updates and any other relevant articles and information there (from time to time!)
I had a conversation with a friend today that reminded me to remind anyone who is reading this to refer this blog and my contact information on to any parents out there that have kids with food intolerances or allergies (or who are trying to provide more balanced meals to their kids in general, for that matter)! It can be a daunting thing and although I am not a professional, I would love to provide any information or referrals I can to help them!
Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear what you would like to see here!
