Hello everyone! My name is Charissa…welcome to Colourful Palate!
This is where I’ll be sharing my love for a healthy lifestyle, my passions for whole foods, fitness, running, and some of my favourite recipes. I’ve always been a bit crazy about health stuff, but in the last couple years I’ve left the “extreme” (i.e. nit-picky) side and now focus on being more balanced. I figure if I eat healthy most of the time, it’s okay to do a little splurge once in a while. This usually means something sinfully delicious and creamy…preferably chocolate.
I have a ton of other interests, which may also show up on my blog now and then. As part of a family music band, I sing lead and play a few different instruments. I am in love with anything creative, like doing oil painting, drawing, bridal and trauma makeup, free-style poetry and writing. Variety makes me happy.
Learning how to fuel my body is very fascinating to me…I just love finding out some of the superpowers of fruits, veggies, and grains and how they can help treat specific problems. I believe that a healthy lifestyle and diet should be the base of pursuing other interests. If your brain and body is fueled properly, we can do everything else so much better, whether it be shooting baskets, researching a paper, or painting a picture. As a long-distance runner, I am discovering more and more how important it is for me to have good nutrition, so I can run with energy and recover quickly. I want to learn all I possibly can, so if you have any secrets, please feel free to share!
Hope you enjoy!
