Lately I've been thinking a lot about Germany and how healthy I felt when I lived there. I was twenty pounds thinner than I am now. I lost all that weight when I lived there. Moving back to the U.S. I slowly started to creep on the pounds. I still don't understand why.
I am trying to figure out what it is I did differently back then. I walked more. I drank herbal infusions (herbs like red clover, stinging nettle, and oatstraw steeped overnight). I foraged. I ate whole foods. I do these things sometimes, by they aren't a part of my life.
The first habit I will re-enter into my life is the daily making of infusions. I have the pot of water boiling and my stinging nettle is standing by, waiting to be added to the boiing water. Yum!
