What everybody ought to know about healthy living from Grounded u0026amp; Surrounded, an inspirational blog where gardening and cooking meet friendship, faith and more!

Remember what Shrek said to Donkey on the way to rescue the princess?

 Shrek: Ogres are a lot like onions… Onions have layers. Ogres have layers… You get it? We both have layers.

Donkey: Oh, you both have LAYERS. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions. CAKE! Everybody loves cake! Cakes have layers!  

Well, here at Grounded u0026amp; Surrounded, we believe healthy living is a lot like an onion…because health has layers too!

Most people treat their health like a big juicy apple instead of an onion. Rather than working their way towards a healthy lifestyle one layer at a time, they take big bites and often lose interest after just a few mouthfuls.

Are you sick and tired of treating your health like an apple, but don’t know how to begin treating it like an onion? Well, you are in the right place!

We have been so blessed to have wonderful mentors who have taught us the meaning of true “Body, Soul, u0026amp; Spirit Health.”

Just like peeling an onion, our progress has been slow and often makes us teary-eyed, but we are committed to seeing it through.

Our goal at Grounded u0026amp; Surrounded is to encourage you to embrace healthy living…one layer at a time. Why? Because you deserve to be healthy!

And if you’d prefer to think of health as a layered cake, that’s just fine with us…so long as it’s a gluten-free chocolate cake…

I've never heard healthy living compared to an onion, but oddly enough it makes perfect sense! Click To Tweet
