When I first began Green Drink Diaries, I did so without a clear vision. I knew I wanted to talk about my journey during and after holistic and natural cancer treatment, but there were other topics I wanted to touch on also, such as healthier beauty products, everyday natural healing methods, and whole foods recipes that were easy to make. The results are what you see today, a helpful “hodge-podge” of topics working towards one goal: helping people live healthier and happier lives.
My blog is named “Green Drink Diaries” to express the lifestyle changes that I have made since being diagnosed with cancer. The most difficult aspect to overcome was the change in my diet. Raw vegetables were something I never had eaten but now was expected to eat for almost every meal. The “Green Drink” or smoothie was a survival mechanism I put into place to reduce the amount of salads I had to eat. It became my saving grace- with a Vitamix you didn’t have to chop veggies for the smoothie, it could be eaten quickly and easily, and it was a TON more food than I could eat with a salad. “Diaries” is the journey during and after cancer, all while thriving, not just surviving.
