Are you breathing correctly?

Dr. Weil was one of my professors in nutrition school and he’s a really cool dude. I love his approach to Western Medicine and his open-mindedness to other philosophies. He has an amazing breathing technique that I wanted to share because it makes a huge difference in allowing space to open up inside your body. It’s great for relaxation, stress, anxiety and does wonders before sleep.

What’s in your shaving cream, makeup, fragrance, products?

Ok….so I have an obsession with toxic chemicals. I’m always looking for ways to clean up my products, living practices and my home environment. I’ve been into this stuff since forever ago but it really started peaking my interest in 2003 when I attended a natural health college. I learned SO MUCH about natural health and natural “green” living and it sparked something inside me.

I love to teach….educate….share. I want to help people. I want people to feel better and detoxify their lives. I want to provide simple solutions to those same people.

I found this video that really is worth the roughly 7 minutes of your time. It helps simplify things when it comes to chemicals in our products and WHY it’s crucial that we ditch them for good.

Bruschetta Stew Recipe


This has to be one of my favorite recipes that I’ve ever created! Who doesn’t love bruschetta? Since I can’t do grains or dairy, I turned this famous Italian appetizer into a stew instead.

Ingredients:

1 block, Extra firm tofu (or shredded chicken)

1 can of organic chickpeas

1 yellow bell pepper, diced

1.5 Cups cauliflower rice (pre-pulsed from Trader Joe’s)

1 segment of broccoli, cut up

1 tub of pre-diced bruschetta from Trader Joe’s- by the hummus (Green/Red tub)

Veggie broth, onion powder, corn meal, Dijon mustard, maple syrup

Directions:

Now, I don’t really measure when I cook stews, I just eyeball it & go off taste so put all veggies in a large pot & fill the veggie broth enough that it covers half of you veggies. We will use the corn meal to thicken the broth later. 

Next add around 1 TBL of onion powder & maple syrup. Add 2 TBL Dijon mustard. Cook over medium/high heat until it starts bubbling & then turn it down to Low, cover the pot & let it simmer for 20-25 minutes. Check the broth & if it’s watery, add in corn meal just a little at a time & stir. Watch for thickening & add more if need be until desired thickness is achieved. You shouldn’t need salt but feel free to use a pinch if you must. 

Enjoy!!

Are you listening to that little voice?

That inner voice that’s been nagging at you to try something or do something? Now is that time. Live BIG. Go for it. Feel the fear and do it anyways. I’m doing it too!
