Give me that good vibrations…from my food!

Give me that good vibrations…from my food!

Did you know that food has vibrations that allow it to create change in our bodies on a cellular level?

Food that is alive and from the earth will energize and invigorate you, while processed, pre-packaged, dead food will leave you feeling lethargic and uninspired, like a light that has
fizzled out. Makes sense doesn’t it? Dark green leafy vegetables are full of chlorophyll, which is basically liquid sunshine. It is the substance in plants that allows them to absorb light from the sun and convert it into usable energy. When we consume raw dark green vegetables such as kale, broccoli, and Swiss chard, we fill our body with the equivalent of the plant’s life blood – the very thing that allows a seed to flourish and take form.
Chemically, the blood of the plant, chlorophyll, is very similar to our blood and, when consumed, it helps us to oxygenate and breathe life into every cell. Pretty cool, huh? Chlorophyll is also extremely cleansing and detoxifying.

Here are some other high vibrational foods for you to try:

  1.  Tree Fruits – try apples, pears, bananas, coconuts, avocados, nectarines, peaches, plums, apricots, oranges, lemons, limes, mangoes, pomegranates, blueberries, cherries, and olives.
  2. Non-green veggies
  3. Raw Cacao – chocolate in its pure form has over 1,200 phytonutrients. It contains nutrients like magnesium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, copper, and manganese. It also contains phenylethylamine, which are the feel good characteristics, and theobromine which dilates the cardiovascular system to allow all the benefits to come in. 
  4. Goji Berries – packed with antioxidants, which can help minimize free radical damage to our cells.
  5. Cultured and Fermented Foods –a great source of probiotics, which will help your digestion stay on track.

I firmly believe in  the old saying, “You are what you eat.”

Junk in = feeling like junk, and rich, living, nutrient-dense food = a much happier body and mind.

Don’t just take my word for it. We’ve all tried the junk in, junk out experiment, so don’t you think it’s time to rock your body and mind with some fresh and fabulous food?

By eating food that vibrates at a higher frequency, we increase our life-force energy and feel more radiant inside and out.

Detox is not as scary as you think!

Detox is not as scary as you think!

You know how nice it feels to drive your car home after getting a tuneup?

The oil is squeaky clean, the fluids have been topped off, windshield wipers have been changed, tire pressure is at that perfect level, and it’s been washed inside and out? Well, just like our cars need a tune up, a seasonal detox allows our bodies to become shiny and new again too. It allows our body to reboot our metabolism, boost our immunity, clears the cobwebs from our minds, gives our skin a chance to glow, and allows us to lose weight effortlesly.

Are you afraid that it will be too hard or that maybe you aren’t worth it?

I know for a fact that you ARE worth it, because I know deep down you are just like me. You want to be happy. You want to feel energetic, vibrant, and full of joy. Do you remember what that feels like? You can be confident in the fact that you are worth it. You are enough! AND, I will be with you every step of the way supporting you, answering your questions, and cheering you on, because I know you can do this.

Maybe a little fear comes up for you at the thought of not being able to eat your favorite foods.
Are you concerned about giving up your daily coffee, chocolate, or evening cocktails perhaps?
Are you afraid I’m going to make you drink juice and smoothies all day?
Maybe you think that you will feel hungry or deprived. No worries, my friend, because I’ve created this detox so you can pick which level of detox adventure you want to go on. Having all these feelings are natural, but you know what is not natural? Feeling like we have to constantly count calories, not eat any fat, and go around in circles from one diet to the next. The thought of doing that for the rest of my life sounds just plain exhausting!

There is no reason to be scared because you will NOT feel deprived.

We are going to keep it simple and eat wholesome, nourishing foods.

The only thing you have to lose is some unwanted poundage, dark circles and puffiness under your eyes, and that feeling of lethargy that has been dragging you down. You will discover your blueprint for the foods that work for your unique body. I have everything you will need: a step-by-step guide, the recipes, a shopping list and meal planner, as well as a transition recipe packet & food diary. I will be with you every step of the way with daily e-mail support and to cheer you on. Register now and change your life forever!

 

Why you should start juicing, NOW!

Why you should start juicing, NOW!

 

Did you know that when you make juice from raw vegetables, your
body absorbs the nutrients within 15 seconds?

Talk about an energy shot! No need to buy those sugary and chemical-ish concoctions from
your local drug-store or mini mart. Juicing is an all-natural way to boost
your energy and feel amazing. When you juice your fruits and veggies,
you end up extracting all the water and nutrients from them and leave
behind only the plant fibers. By separating the fruit or vegetable from
its fiber, we gain access to all of the amazing vitamins, minerals,
enzymes, and phytonutrients which are much more easily assimilated
by our body than if we were to eat them.
This allows your body to absorb the nutrients more quickly, without
having to digest the dense bulk of the plant. You can also fit an
amazing amount of veggies into a single glass of juice, making it a
great way to use up those extra veggies.

PLUS, you will end up with a glass of deliciousness that packs a

powerful nutritional punch. Although some would also say that the cost

of stocking enough fresh organic vegetables to make daily juices can
be somewhat expensive, my feeling is that if you stop buying all of the
pre-packaged foods/snacks you were buying, you will end up saving
money in the long run on your food AND your doctor bills.
One more thing before I go: while you can control the quality of
ingredients when you are making fresh juice at home, always read
your labels when it comes to buying store-bought juice. These juices
can be high in sugar and have a high glycemic load, which may cause
blood sugar imbalances.

How does my gut affect my mood?

How does my gut affect my mood?

Your gut is your body’s second brain.

For years, the medical world has been trying to figure out what causes our moods to change and what causes common problems that most of us face like stress, anxiety, and even depression. These are common problems, and we know they are linked to serotonin, but did you know that 95% of serotonin isn’t even produced in the brain? Serotonin is actually produced in the gut. 

What we put inside of our bellies is directly related to our emotional health. Our gut consists of bacteria and we need that bacteria to have a healthy balance or the rest of us will not be balanced including our mood. Your gut and your brain work together, so if one is out of balance the other will be also. Have you ever had an upset stomach because your mind was stressed? Well, think about it, if it works one way it works both ways. Their have been many scientific studies that have linked mood problems to gut problems and vice versa.

Is your gut balanced with 85% good bacteria and 15% bad bacteria? That is the recipe for a healthy gut and a healthy mood. The best way to make sure your body has healthy bacteria for your gut is to feed your gut healthy bacteria. Some symptoms of an unhealthy gut include gas, bloating, nausea, sugar cravings, and more. The best way to make sure that your gut is getting the healthy nourishment it needs is through probiotics. Probiotics can be in pill form, or you can get them right through your diet. Excellent sources of probiotics include kefir and fermented or cultured foods and beverages.

Keeping a healthy gut in check will help you to digest food properly, absorb vital nutrients, and maintain a healthy state of mind aka your mood.
