Positive Mental Attitude and Tea

Shin Beef and Winter Veg

There is a fundamental part of us that is not physical that existed before we were born and that will continue long into the night.  This is our essence, never changing, constant.  And it is this part when connected with our physical bodies that gave us and continues to give us  – life.

What do you give back?

How well are you looking after this magical, mystical gift?

There are many ways to give back, to honour this presence.  The first and simplest way is to provide a safe, vibrant, healthy place to live and that means taking care of your body!  Accept this responsibility with gratitude and love for make no mistake, it is your responsibility and one to which you must commit.  That’s part of the deal.

If you moved into a house and over time the walls began to crumble, the windows bowed, the door frames stuck and all of this was visible from the outside in, you would do something about it!  You would not be content with less.  You would fix things one step at a time.  Do the same for your body, do the same for your life.

On some days it helps us to imagine the life inside as this spirit, this essence, gracing our body with movement and vitality and to see our objective as “holding” this essence, nourishing this essence to secure the best in life.  Like precious water contained in an earthenware vase.  Love it and treat it well!

How-to-dietTonight we ate a good paleo tea which all of us enjoyed.  We slow cooked the shin beef  for eight hours with lots of spices and prepared sweet potatoes in jackets, slices of roast butternut squash and roasted kale for those feeling hungry!

We had pudding but it was a taste only: strawberries and whipped-up coconut

milk which seems to be popular on the paleo circuit  We finish with a cup of tea and talk about our busy day.

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!

  1. Exactly how I feel. Working one step at a time to fix all the walls I have let crumble.

    • The life we hold inside is beautiful and precious and strong, always present never changing, waiting…that’s the most amazing thing, find that and all else is cosmetic, fixable and DO-ABLE…and this time build your house up strong, fix the foundations, tend the flowers…and don’t look back. Have a great day, Katie 🙂

  2. You go girl!! They taste good and sweet and clean – tell us how it goes….

  3. Reblogged this on My Cranky Gut and commented:
    I loved this post discussing the importance of maintaining and loving this container we live in. We are so much more than our bodies, and yet these fleshy vessels are ours in which to reside this time around.
