21DSD Day 7: There is more to food

Another great day spent out and about. We attended a family event at a park celebrating Jonathan going to college. Jonathan, who was an incoming junior in high school at the time, spent one summer interning for me. He helped me make delicious new recipes and wrote content for the blog about (what else?) everything beef jerky. Jonathan has matured into a bright, responsible young man who is eager to do well. I am proud of his achievements and wish him well in this next chapter of his life.

Although I took photos of the Paleo and 21DSD food options available at the celebration, I don't want this post to be about food for once. Food is not the only ingredient (pun intended) to living a happy and healthy life. Spending IN PERSON time with people who matter the most to you by taking time away from the interwebs allows you to enjoy the moments of actual living more fully. Using all our senses to engage with our surroundings can be quite fun and fulfilling. And if your body is running on healthy, whole foods sans sugar, food is no longer the only thing on your mind between meals. Granted, you are well "armed" with healthy snacks in case hunger pays a visit.

My family doesn't always find the time to go out in nature, but when we do, it's so nice to take in the nature with all of the senses. Here is a candid shot of us strolling through the park while our little guy takes a nap.

How do you carve out time away from the computer to live in the moment?
