As Fat Tuesday comes to an end, I’m left with a full belly to reflect on which poison I should toss aside for the next forty days. It’s usually meat, with a side of chocolate that I ban from my diet, but this year I am trying something a little unorthodox. Instead of depriving my muscle rejuvenation processes through deficient protein intake, and my large-and-in-charge sweet tooth, I am going to leave my food consumption style unchanged and adopt new lifestyle mantras.
1. Never beat myself up. Over anything. Positivity is Key.
2. Support my clothing obsession with more sustainable fashion.
3. Live now, and live in color.
So, these may seem, to the untrained eye, to be too new year’s resolution-esqe, but I truly believe Lent is about bettering yourself. Steps 1-3 can do that for me. Abandoning the poultry aisle in Trader Joes… not so much.
May I introduce you to the first step toward following mantra 2 and 3: Salty Phillip. They aim to banish the idea that eco is dull, and by the looks of it – they’re hitting the target.
40 days? Child’s play.
