“Fall” in love with yourself!

IMG_3727Fall is here and the weather will soon be delightful. The Fall is a great time to reconnect with yourself. Spend some time nourishing your body, mind, and spirit and reconnecting with “YOU”. Get outside and go for a walk in nature. Eat natural food that is prepared with “Love”. Dream of the life you would like to experience in all aspects. Nurture and embrace your emotional, spiritual, physical, intellectual, and sexual aspects and explore your inner world. get-attachment-3.aspxIn our fast paced society with technology moving lighting fast it is important to slow down and decompress. It’s like my love Jules’ father said, “Go slow, you will see better”! A good way to slow down is to reconnect to the “breath”. More on The “Breath”. I like to use the inhale-hold-exhale-hold repeat technique: You simply inhale through your nose for a 3 count, then hold for a 3 count, exhale through mouth for a 6 count, hold for a 3 count then repeat. This will totally re-energize and calm you at the same time. Time to have some fun and rediscover “You”. Your challenge: To take one day this week and make it all about “you”. This means you will make yourself the number one priority for this one day. You deserve it! I recommend choosing a non work day and I also recommend shutting down all technological devices so that you may be completely present to your wants and needs as you spend the day exploring , loving , and nourishing yourself.

Fall Over-haul!! ” I’ll Drink to that”!!

Well, the Fall has finally arrived and this means it is a perfect time to shed some old skin and overhaul your body. I would like to introduce you to some different beverages you can prepare to help the body cleanse itself and nourish it from the inside out. I’d like to break the drinks into three different categories, and also suggest what you will need for each.

IMG_1627IMG_1626#1. Juices– Need a juicer. You will be juicing mostly vegetables. There are many different types of juicers available on the market. Choose the one that works best for your unique needs. For these juices I recommend using beets and lots of greens with some lemon. Experiment and have fun becoming a juice-ologist!!

#2. Tea’s– You will need a tea pot. Bring water or nut milk to a boil, add some medicinal tea’s and herbs and spices to create your own healing tonics. I like to take some almond milk and water and add raw cacao powder, turmeric, and raw local honey and a medicinal tea such as dandelion root or pau d arco or green tea., whatever you like or feel will enhance your health. Use your imagination and intuition and give your body what it needs.

IMG_1567IMG_1332#3 Blended Drinks– Blender needed. Nutribullet is an inexpensive high powered blender that is perfect for concocting blended beverages. If you have lots of $ the Blend-tec or Vita-mix are excellent all purpose blenders. For these drinks you are going to put greens, vegetables, vitamin/mineral powders, super foods, fruits, nuts, seeds, all together and mix. These drinks are super nutritious and will fill you up. When you blend stuff together it masks the flavors. This is a wonderful way to sneak in some healthy veggies that you would not likely eat otherwise. I like to  fill my liquid with nut milk, some water, and maybe some kefir or yogurt to add some beneficial bacteria for my gut flora. Then I will mix in some greens, some different super foods such as Maca, chia seeds, flax seeds, and other powdered supplements. I then add some good fats like coconut oil or some almond butter. Next comes the frozen berries. Finally I mix and pour into a pretty glass. Yummm!

*****This week, I challenge you to make 1 beverage from each category. Create. Have Fun. Love the process. Feel free to share your creations below. Thanks for participating!
