Hi friends! It's officially 2016 which means this is the first post of a whole new year. Crazy hey?
2015 was filled with ups and downs for me. It marked the very emotional end of my long term relationship, the hardest year of studying I have ever done for my internal medicine exams, and the year my grandmother got diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. I have probably shed more tears in 2015 than in any other year of my life. But, out of those emotional struggles has also come healing and self acceptance. Two things I am still working on on a daily basis.
On the positive side, I got to be a part of my best friend's wedding, I passed my internal medicine exams (thank god!), I have been able to spend more time with friends and family, and have seen some pretty great growth on the blog. Now I realize my blog is still itty bitty in the grand scheme of things, but I am pretty proud of keeping this thing going during some of the busiest times of my life. And I plan on continuing this trend for as long as I can!
And in honour of the new year I wanted to share the most popular posts of 2015 with you. I have never done this before, mainly because my blogging was so sporadic in the past that there wouldn't have been enough posts for me to pick from. Not anymore! There is quite a variety here, everything from food dishes to natural skin care to an emotional book review. I love that you guys support whatever I post on here. When I first started the blog it was only for recipes, but total health is much more than what you are eating, so I have been trying to post more variety in the last few months, and plan to continue this trend into the new year. I am also interested in so many other things beyond food that I would like to start integrating those other interests here as well (think fitness, fashion, and other lifestyle related topics). So if you have any topics you would like covered just let me know! I am always looking to hear your thoughts. I am also looking to continue improving my photography next year because I know you guys appreciate those pretty pictures (and so do I).
So without further adieu I give you Pure and Simple Nourishment's Top 10 Posts of 2015. Enjoy friends!
As always I would be thrilled if you followed my social media pages on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
Until next time, happy eating everyone!
