In September of 2010 -- long before I started following a plant-based lifestyle -- I discovered Amazing Grass products through a friend's blog. It wasn't long before I picked up a small tub of the Green Superfood Chocolate Infusion powder and started mixing it into smoothies and shaking it up with a bit of almond milk. Looking back at my initial brush with Amazing Grass, it marks a pivotal turning point in my food journey. My heart opened to the possibility that food could profoundly affect more than my physical presentation; it could affect the way I thought, felt, and moved throughout the day. Furthermore, I realized that what I ate could embody a sort of self-love, self-compassion, and self-respect. I could live this love by listening to the reverberating effects of what I ate on how I felt and eat more of the things that contributed to my well-being and less of the foods that didn't.
Fast forward to January of 2015 and I was presented with the idea of completing Amazing Grass' V-Tox Challenge, a 5-day program with a focus on improving overall health. I quickly jumped on board but an overflowing plate of commitments kept getting in the way of actually following through on completing it. I was avoiding balance when I needed it most. I (finally) took the challenge during the first week of May, and it came at just the right time. Five days of clean eating, exercising, and tuning in to my personal wellness barometer refreshed my perspective and renewed my energy.
