Take Back Your Life – Actions 1 & 2

When you are upgrading your life it’s important to honor the connection between your body and mind. Upgrading only one of these, without supporting the other, can create an imbalance that either pulls you backwards into old destructive habits or limits your growth. As you add superfoods into your diet you are naturally raising your vibration and increasing your capacity for awareness in your consciousness.  The phytochemicals, rich nutrients and ormus in superfoods help to remove emotional blocks and make new neural connections in your mind. Take advantage of these natural shifts by supporting your consciousness with structures and tools […]

What Is A Superfood

What the Heck is a Superfood, Anyway?!? By our definition, a superfood is a raw, densely nutritious food that is easy for your body to digest. Raw is important because all the enzymes in the food that help your body digest it are still intact, making it that much easier on your body. Also, when these foods are raw many of them are adaptogens, meaning they help your body adapt to a situation (for example being focused and alert or being blissfully relaxed). Many adaptogenic superfoods become stimulants when they are cooked (cacao, guarana and yerba matte in particular do this). […]

Chia Porridge

Breakfast of Champions! : ) This is a superfood upgrade for breakfast cereals and oatmeal, and it’s easily customizeable! To make Chia Porridge, simply combine: 3.5 Cups liquid (we prefer coconut milk) 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds Stir well and let sit overnight in the fridge.  If you need it in a hurry, stir regularly for about 15-30 minutes (the longer it sits, the more solid a gel you will have). Like oatmeal, this tastes best with some seasoning and fruit added to it, like cinnamon, nutmeg a pinch of salt and banana or apple. If you prefer a crunchy cereal, […]

High Quality Water

We almost always drink spring water.  There are rare occasions where we drink some other kind of purified water (like while traveling and using the water filters at the airport). Why Spring Water?  It’s pure – free of chemicals like chlorine and (gasp!) fluoride. It’s alive!  The structure of water flowing right out of a spring into your glass containers is noticeably different in taste and effect on your body. It’s free!  Go to FindASpring.com to find a spring near you.   Next Best Options When we can’t harvest spring water ourselves, we consider any of these options suitable for […]

Buy Organic When …

The Dirty Dozen … Buy these fruits and veggies organic only, because they contain the highest pesticide load the way they are grown.   And here’s my handy shopping list … add it to the notes on your phone so you always know which produce to buy organic and which is the least contaminated, so probably OK to get conventional (just be sure to wash it well!)   Most Contaminated  (Best to get Organic) Apples * Bell Peppers Blueberries Celery * Cherries Grapes Kale
