au naturale

I hate disease.  It rips the body apart, and destroys life.  Cancer is among the worst.  The very mention of it's name strikes fear and despair.  In the past year, Paul and I have had numerous family members diagnosed with one or more types of this ugly disease.  It's made us frustrated, even furious.  We're at war with this vile illness, and sadly most are losing.

For those who know me, you know I'm stubborn, strong-willed... a fighter.  I don't like to give up and walk away.  I like to make things happen, and prepare for things before they happen.  I've secretly always wanted to be a boy scout... just ask my husband.... I have a first aid kit and car repair kit stored in my jeep, as well as mace and toilet paper, cause you just never know....

So, in light of the illness in our families, and with my knack of being prepared, Paul and I have begun researching on health and diet, and the powerful correlation between the two.  We're going Au Naturale so to speak.  Here's a little glimpse into our new venture...

Juicing is our favorite part... a great way to load up on tons of nutrients!





I now crave salads.... Never in my life did I imagine I would type that.

Here is a vegan version of a philly cheesteak using portobello mushrooms instead of meat.  You may grimace, but it's actually really good!

It's a little extra work, and a bit time consuming, but we feel great, and plan to keep on going.

So proud of you two for this commitment to better health. Better to do it while your both young than later in life. Love you two.

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
