Texas, part 1 of 7: Wide open spaces, big hearts, what a great trip!

Robyn Openshaw - Oct 30, 2011 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

Do I sound like a broken record when I come back from a speaking tour and tell you how in love I am with my job? My job where I get to hear people tell about their SUCCESS, achieved through simple but true principles, applied consistently?

And those who haven’t yet achieved a miracle, I get to give them some ideas, some facts, some of my own experience…..which translates into HOPE?

I’ve been “public” for less than 4 years now. Before that I was just in my kitchen, and with my nose in a book, studying and practicing.

Now, though, my conviction is complete—because in addition to my own family’s experience (I personally eliminated 21 chronic health conditions), I now have thousands of others’ experiences to draw on.

Just watch for my awesome video coming up, with SHELLEY in San Antonio, and young-mom 12-Steppers WENDY and JANET in Austin!

Out of my own kitchen, we implement strategies to help people attain better health on a bigger scale every year. Kristin and I have long convos in the car and on airplanes about how clear it’s become that the mission we are on is so much bigger than we are.

After an event for 300 people, Kristin and I sometimes just sit and process and revel in our general awestruck-ness… how many phenomenal people we meet and exciting stories we hear. I cannot even begin to tell them all on this blog.

We are trying to bring together the internet, and a very active blog, with real-live events, great recipes and good books, solid tools and instruction, and third parties telling their stories on film, to spread an exciting message of good news:

  1. That turning away from the S.A.D. has all upside, virtually no downside, after a learning curve
  2. That you can eat natural, whole, healing foods, without being deprived or counting calories
  3. That whole foods can be delicious, easy to prepare, and affordable

    Hi Robyn! Sounds like you did Texas some good 🙂 I have an unrelated question for you. On one of the other blogs I read (with your message + some celebrities – some science), she was recommending supplements – specifically D3 and B12. I understand D3, I think I read that you and you family also take it. What about B12? It makes me cranky that I can’t get everything I need from real food. Do you have any suggestions? I should mention that my partner and I eat local meat (gasp!) about twice a month. I know red meat has B12 – but is it enough?

      Red meat has B12 and eating it once in a while is enough, yes. Many meat eaters are B12 deficient, and many vegans aren’t, so I think this idea that you have to eat red meat to avoid deficiency is sketchy at best. Some believe that Brewer’s Yeast, aloe, and a few plant sources are enough too. If you’re worried about it, you can get B injections at a hormone clinic a few times a month (up to once a week) which should cost you about $15, or you can wear a B12 patch that you can buy online. And yes, I think it’s wise to take D3 if you don’t get in the sun regularly, year-round. Don’t overdose though. In Texas last week I met a woman who said she’d been in the sun and taking 7,000 IU of D3 and had recently been released from the hospital for overdosing on it!
