The Founding Intention
At the time (1998-2003) there weren’t a lot of options for clean, nutrient dense foods right off the shelf. In order to maintain the lifestyle, I desired, I went right to work… Well, not literally… in fact, I actually really didn’t want to get a “real” job. Instead, I followed my heart and began experimenting with creating foods that I felt would really make a positive difference in the health of myself, my family and friends. I soon developed an almost obsessive passion for creating recipes. In those days, you could have found me in my home kitchen, sprouting in 5 gallon buckets, ingredients everywhere, with scattered dehydrators stacked up throughout the house, drying day and night. I was literally formulating and dehydrating with everything I could get my hands on, I am pretty sure my friends and family thought I was out of my mind!
I would spend endless hours reading recipe books with the intention of understanding how I could take standard comfort foods and turn them into nutritional powerhouses. I even hand-wrote 75+ pages of my favorite book, from cover to cover, because I really wanted to absorb all the concepts. My end goal was to share with people a better and tastier way to eat, without high-heat processing, consuming fillers or any of the weird, unpronounceable stuff that we all see on ingredient panels.
I soon decided that I needed to shake up my world, so I packed a backpack, jumped on a plane, and went to Hawaii. Being in a tropical environment, my goal was to primarily live off of my dehydrated snacks, freshly picked fruits and coconuts. This experience would change me forever…
At this time, I was very focused on practicing the art of intention. I am a believer that we all manifest our reality through the intentions we put out into our world. As I dove deeper into my meditation and yoga practice, it was proven to me time and time again, that in order to be clear-headed, and in a space to manifest what we really want, we must consume clean, nutritionally dense, vibrant foods… and within a short time… Living Intentions was born.
