My name is Larissa Conley and I am a green juice-drinking wife and mother. I love experimenting with foods and sharing recipes. I am actively pursuing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. I am seeking to live a life of balance and joy. And I would love for you to join me on this journey.
My journey to balance started in October 2011 when I acquired a series of infections that really took the life out of me. Medical interventions seemed only to make things worse so I began to research alternative ways to regain my health. It soon became apparent that there is a real link between food, lifestyle and health. Within months I had drastically altered my diet, started to change my mindset, and began to see improvements. I was surprised by the novelty of feeling well – had I really been sick for so long that it started to seem normal? So I researched more and cut more things out of my diet. These were not easy months; I felt overwhelmed by all I was learning and implementing.
After about 4 months on a highly restricted diet, I took stock of my life again. It was at this point I realized that diet alone is not the key to health. Other things (adequate movement, supportive relationships, a positive work environment, a peaceful home) are just as important. It was when my focus switched from restrictions to healthy lifestyle choices that I really began to see improvements.
In September 2012 I began studying at the largest nutrition school in the world in order to learn more about improving my life through eating well and taking care of myself. I am also learning how to coach others to do the same. I want to share my learning with others so we can live vibrant lives together.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find this space enjoyable and helpful.
Wishing you lots of love and green juice,
