It is so easy to blame our genetics or the food industry for our unhealthy bodies.The truth is we are the ones in charge of our well being. We need to trust in our Bodies, Trust in the choices we make. You do know what is best for you and this planet.
Our Amazing bodies don't need much, but they do need some basic things to be well and balanced. Sunshine, Clean Air,Clean Water, Clean Foods and some Love and Laughter. That is a pretty simple list for a very special life.
If you just replace processed packaged foods with some fresher clean choices, you are on you...
Some days, you just need to Stop, Breath in deep, and take a break from it all. We are raised to be productive and busy, and if we aren't, we feel lazy. Honestly, we need to be lazy once in a while in order to be balanced and healthy. We need down time, alone time, and time to just be quite in our bodies. My favorite time alone is outdoors, swimming or sitting still. Being alone is when we can feel most at peace, not consumed by responsibility, or other people. This time allows us to be free to just be. So for the sake of your health, Stop and enjoy the peace within.
Most people do not get enough water in a day. Chapped lips, congestion, dry skin, bowel or digestion issues all can be helped by hydrating your body. Since drinking enough plain water can be boring, I like to have infused water ready to go. Keep a big container in your fridge to help you remember to drink up. I like fresh herbs, organic fruits or a combination, like lemon and rosemary. Kids will be more likely to drink lots of water, if it's colorful and full of fun healthy flavors.
A big key to your health is your digestion. If you digest and absorb nutrients well, you have a better chance of maintaining your health. One way to have good digestion, is by eating Live Enzymes that are found in raw fruits and veggies. They have naturally occurring enzymes that support the body in breaking down and digesting foods.
Good Digestion is important so that you can better absorb vital nutrients. This can help the body in its basic functions to maintain health.
Organic and raw Tropical fruits are a Great Source of Live Enzymes. Pineapple, Papaya, and Mango are...
I have found that one of the best ways to get your kids to be healthier eaters, is to let them shop and cook with you. Yes, it may be a little more effort, but letting them be involved in the choices and the preparation of meals, will definitely give them a vested interest in eating better. Start them off early with Good Nutrittion for a life time of healthy habits.
Here is a link to some yummy pocket snacks for the kids, from Eat Fresh.
After food is digested in the stomach and moves into your intestines, the broken down particles are then absorbed from your intestines into the blood stream. The blood then carries needed nutrients like oxygen, minerals, vitamins, water to all of the vital organs. Your blood is the transportation system for life sustaining nutrients.
If your body continually has to remove foreign or harmful substances, like artificial colors, flavors, pesticides, allergens and so on, it can make it difficult to perform normal functions and repairs. This could eventually cause infla...
In my maturity, I have come to realize that if you only focus on how you look, you’re missing the bigger picture. It is far better to focus on how you are feeling. Are you feeling energized, rested and clear headed? Is your skin supple, are your bowels regular and do you move easily?
These are much better things to focus on. If you pay attention to what your body is asking for, the look will be more Radiant, Glowing, Bouncy and Beautiful.
After struggling with a gradual weight gain of approximately 30 pounds over 3 years, I knew I had to make some changes. First it was to admit I was indeed getting older and could not continue to keep some of my old habits. Second was to come up with a game plan for my “Golden Years”. This would not be another 2 week crash diet to drop a quick 5 pounds like I was accustomed to. I had to find something I could live with into the Autumn days of my life.
After completing a 2 year course in Holistic Nutrition and a bit of trial and error I came up with a plan that w...
