Raw, organic whole food ingredients from yesterday's delicious "cereal - the way nature intended." Soaked and sprouted buckwheat groats, cinnamon, raspberries (yesterday it was actually apple slices), shredded coconut, raw (never roasted) almond butter, soaked chia seeds, and homemade almond milk. Super nutrient dense and delicious. When you become highly creative with your food and meal preparation, the rewards are magnificent in body, mind, and spirit.

Tomorrow I'll be getting on a train and traveling for 12 hours. Downsize if you are going out for a few hours or a day's work. The key to prevention & dis-ease reversal is Preparation. The key to managing addiction is Preparation. The key to balancing blood sugar is Preparation. When I arrive at my destination, grocery shopping is first on the list. Sauerkraut, green kabocha, peppermint tea, chlorella, eggs, pecans, albacore, sprouting buckwheat, avocado, raw cacao, apple, pomegranate…

Self-care/Health-care asks us to slow down just a bit. Not such a bad deal really. In fact, quite a gift... actually. Here's where ritual comes in. Find the rhythms that empower you, that give you that surge of YEAH. Rejoice in preparing your meals & understand the opportunity to step through the door of creativity. The rewards are endless and reach way beyond the obvious. Dive in to receive yours! One of my favorite lifestyle practices is soaking almonds & sprouting raw buckwheat groats.

Go for delicious and nutritious and don't settle for less. Pay attention to the micronutrients - vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Take note of your macronutrients - protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Heart/brain-healthy fats, slow-converting carbs, and nutrient-dense protein in every meal. Get raw, living food on your plate. Take joy, celebrate the goodness, and practice gratitude. Oh... make it beautiful when you can. Your spirit will appreciate it!

My "staples" follow me & my meals: raw nuts, hemp seeds, coconut shreds, a generous helping of cinnamon, & a bit of fruit. What are some of your staples? Peaceful healing, friends.

Here's how to make your morning hot drink super delicious and even more nutritious then it already might be. Whip up some homemade almond milk and keep it on hand in the fridge. And I do say "whip up" because it's that quick and easy. I love organic, raw, grass-fed butter. You could also use unrefined coconut oil. Blend it all together and sprinkle cinnamon on top. You're in for a tasty treat grounded with healthy protein and fats. Peaceful healing, friends.

These are some of the ingredients I use daily. They are my nutrient-dense staples that I mix and match throughout various dishes. I "outfit" my meals with these superfoods... Chia seeds, hemp seeds, coconut, pecans, raw cacao, cinnamon, and fresh almond milk. What are some of your daily staples that you nourish yourself with? I would love to know. Peaceful healing, friends.

We're faced with food choices daily. The idea is to make the most self-supportive choices you can with what is available in the moment. Love yourself through it... however it went. Move on; don't dwell. Pay close attention to oils! Many are rancid & inflammatory, an underlying cause of chronic disease. The chips here are made with coconut oil; the hummus, extra virgin olive oil. Peaceful healing, friends.

Did you know infusing your food with love makes a huge difference in absorption & digestion? Try a simple meal of cucumber slices, luscious figs, & albacore mixed with red onions, whole grass-fed yogurt, sea salt & pepper. Peaceful healing, friends.
