Rocket Salad, A Super Summer Treat Plus A Special Freebie!

There’s so many greens, and so many of them are my favorites. However, just a few I don’t think I could live without. One of those oddly enough is arugula.



Just 1/2 a cup of arugula gives me over half of my daily needed Vitamin K levels, and when it’s in a salad and not a smoothie I also absorb it because it’s a fat soluble nutrient. It’s an important nutrient for me due to my clotting factors. It also, though, gives me that important iron source, another fantastic item for me thanks to my genetics.

My husband is not a fan of this green because it has a slightly bitter taste, but I can add it to our pesto in the summer and he doesn’t even blink. Of course you get most of the Vitamin K right after it’s picked, and so during the winter I grow this gem in my indoor tower, or as we call it the urban garden.

Because of the bitterness a great option for arugula is to pair it with sweet, which is why I love it wit some roasted vegetables.

Arugula Salad With Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

Ingredients

1 (1.5 to 2 lb) butternut squash

1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp EVOO or Thrive Algae oil (my heart healthy choice)

2 Tbsp organic maple syrup

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

3 Tbsp dried cranberries

3/4 cup apple juice

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp shallots, minced

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

4 ounces baby arugula, washed and dried

1/2 cup walnuts pieces, toasted (or I love roasted hemp seeds as well)




Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut squash in half, scoop out the seeds and pulp, remove rind, and cut into 1 inch pieces.

Place the squash on a baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil, maple syrup, salt and teaspoon pepper and mix to coat well.

Put in preheated oven and roast for 10 minutes, turn, and roast an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until tender and browning.

Just before roast cooks completely, sprinkle cranberries on top and put back in oven for final minutes – about 2 or 3 minutes is enough.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk together the apple juice, apple cider, and shallots and bring to a boil over medium heat; cook until this liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and whisk in the Dijon mustard, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to make the vinaigrette dressing.

To assemble, put the arugula in a large salad bowl and add the roasted squash mixture and walnuts.

Drizzle a little vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine. Add more vinaigrette if desired, taste, and add more kosher salt and pepper if needed.
Serve immediately. Will serve about 4 to 6 people.

Tips For Reducing Your Daily Stress When You Have Emotional Eating Responses

One of the key triggers to emotional eating is your daily stress. This can come from a variety of factors, some of which you may never consider. If you are having an increased amount of stress, and notice and increased amount of emotional eating moments, then you may want to work on reducing the core cause of the stressors in your life. Here are some tips for locating the source of your daily stress, reducing that stress at the core, and in turn reducing the amount of emotional eating responses you are having.

Start a Routine

One of the key ways to reducing your daily stress and, in turn, reducing your emotional eating responses is to set up a routine. This doesn’t mean you have to schedule everything in your life down to the last second. Instead, look at starting a routine for small aspects of your life and work up from there. For example, when you wake up do certain things that make your day easier before you leave the house.

Make sure you throw in that load of laundry you always avoid later in the day that ends up piling up and causing stress. Start the dishwasher or empty it and put the dishes away. That way it is already done and the rest of the day is yours. I do the same for eating. If you squeeze in a nutrient dense smoothie you’ll have less stress about meal planning. You can also make a salad in a jar using all of your favorite veggies. In the evening do the same sort of routine creating for dinner planning and prep for success. Once you start getting into a routine habit in your morning and evening, you can span out to the point you have a daily routine that you are used to and stress triggers, like the laundry, are reduced. This is the Healthy Living Revolution!!

Technology Disconnect

Technology can be a huge stress trigger for many people, even you. You may not think it is, but look at a few examples. Your phone is set-up to notify you of upcoming events, appointments, and bills. You also have notifications of things going on with friends and co-workers social media accounts. It is a constant attachment that can sometimes lead you to stressing over bills, upcoming appointments, and drama in your friends lives.

To reduce the stress, disconnect from your technology for one hour or so a day. Turn off your phone and leave it on a charger in another room. Go and game with friends online and get lost in an MMO, or watch your favorite show. You can even pick up something that is a 100% disconnect, like meditation or exercise. The stresses are reduced and something positive is replacing the spot.

Simplify Your Work

Your work schedule and routine can be a huge source of stress, especially if you are are a freelancer or in an administrative position. Take a few minutes to look over your schedule, planning, and client list. Remove the things you don’t need. Some of these things may be webinars that are unnecessary, clients that are overly demanding, and extra side freelancing positions that are just not worth the time and payout. Once these are removed, set-up a routine for what is left. The routine can be handled the same way as the routine for your daily life. Work on things that stress you at the end of the day first, then move through the day.

These methods will help you organize your daily life, work life, and emotional well-being to reduce overall stress. Once these areas are taken care of and sorted out, you will start to see a reduction in stress and a subsequent reduction in emotional eating.

Tips For Reducing Your Daily Stress When You Have Emotional Eating Responses

You Really Are What You Eat

I do love my vitamins, especially when they come from nothing but whole foods! Recent dietary research has uncovered 14 different nutrient-dense foods that time and again promote good overall health.  Coined “superfoods,” they tend to have fewer calories, higher levels of vitamins and minerals, and many disease-fighting antioxidants.



Beans (legumes), berries (especially blueberries), broccoli, green tea, nuts (especially walnuts), oranges, pumpkin, sea vegetables. cold-washed non-gmo soy, spinach, tomatoes, gluten-free oats, and fermented non-dairy products can all help stop and even reverse symptoms that so many of us are dealing with. And where one might have an effect on a certain part of the body, it can also affect the health of other body functions and performance, since the whole body is connected.  With these simple whole foods as the base of a balanced, solid diet, weight loss gimmicks and other fly-by-night programs can become a thing of the past in your life.

Conversely, the ill-effects of an unbalanced diet are several and varied. Low energy levels, mood swings, tired all the time, weight change, uncomfortable with body are just a few signs that your diet is unbalanced.  An unbalanced diet can cause problems with maintenance of body tissues, growth and development, brain and nervous system function, as well as problems with bone and muscle systems.

Symptoms of malnutrition include lack of energy, irritability, a weakened immune system leading to frequent colds or allergies, and mineral depletion that can trigger a variety of health concerns including anemia.

And since the body is connected, realizing that an unhealthy body will result in an unhealthy spirit only makes sense.  When we nourish our body with these superfoods and complement them with other nutrient-dense and healthy fresh foods, our spirit will be vitalized and healthy as a direct result.

Many modern diets based on prepackaged convenience foods are sorely lacking in many vitamins and minerals, which can affect our mental capacities as well, and cause irritability, confusion, and the feeling of ‘being in a fog’ all the time.



Superfoods can be the basis of a sound, healthy, nutritious solution to curing many of these ailments and more.

Essential Nutrients for the Battle of the Middle Ground

Mom told you, or maybe she didn’t, that you have to fight with every bit of non-logical being when it comes time to fight off the Menopause Dragon. As we age, our body changes. The nutrients required by a thirty-five year old woman are not the same nutrients required by a fifty-five year old woman. Perimenopausal and menopausal women require some specific nutrients to maintain optimum health.

Even if a woman eats a wide variety of healthy foods during this time, she may still be missing some essential nutrients. The reason is because her body has shifted and the nutrients she believes she needs may not address the symptoms of perimenopause or menopause. Let’s take a look at some symptoms and see how two important nutrients – calcium and vitamin D – work in tandem to ease those symptoms.

Calcium

A lack of adequate calcium in the body can lead to reduced bone density. When your body doesn’t get enough calcium, it will take the calcium from the bones in your body. This can lead to bone loss and, eventually, osteoporosis.

Other problems, such as restlessness, anxiety, and disturbed sleep patterns may also be the result of a calcium deficiency. Begin building your calcium reserves by eating several of these foods daily:

Sweet Potatoes

Collard Greens

Non-gmo Cold-washed Soy

Wild Caught Salmon or Sardines

Spinach

Broccoli

Of course, along with adding calcium rich foods to your diet, taking a whole foods capsule rich in calcium is an excellent way to ensure you are getting the right amount by bridging that gap. The recommended amount of calcium for perimenopausal and menopausal women until the age of 55 is 1200 mg per day. After 55, it is often recommended to boost the dosage to 1500 mg per day. Our body tends to absorb less calcium as we age. The extra calcium can ease the symptoms of menopause and protect against bone loss.

Vitamin D

It’s important to know that calcium cannot be absorbed by the body without vitamin D. It doesn’t matter how much calcium you take, if you don’t pair it with enough vitamin D, the calcium will not be absorbed properly. I joke that here in the Pacific Northwest we get overwhelmed after the first sunny day, with too much Vitamin D. However that’s just a joke and most of us are deficient. Along with helping to absorb calcium to maintain bone health, vitamin D can also combat mood swings, even fighting off depression. Vitamin D is also known to help with memory and overall cognitive performance.

One of the easiest, and best, ways to get enough vitamin D is to go outside. The sun works with your body to produce vitamin D through the skin. Just exposing your skin to sunlight 15 minutes a day will provide your body with a healthy dose of vitamin D. Have chicken skin? It could mean your a D-deficient. This is a case where more is not better. Once you have your 15 minutes, go ahead and lather on the sunscreen to protect your skin from overexposure. You have had all the sunlight you need.

If you are unable to get outside daily, add extra servings of D rich foods to your diet. If, however, these sources of vitamin D are not readily available to you on a routine basis, then adding a supplement is a good idea. The recommended daily allowance of vitamin D is 1000 mg per day, although talk to your doctor. I take far higher amounts throughout the year here in the Seattle area.

Your doctor or other health professional will be your best resource if you have any doubts or questions about how much calcium and vitamin D you need to maintain optimum health and fight the symptoms of perimenopause or menopause. Make a list of all the calcium rich and vitamin D rich foods you eat each day, then sit down and discuss your lifestyle and eating habits with your doctor or health professional. Adding a supplement may be recommended, and it may be just the answer you were looking for to relieve those symptoms and enjoy better health.

Your Fat Cells Are Multiplying When You Least Expect It

Adipogenesis made me fat… We’ve known for some time that fat cells and and will multiply. Previous belief has been that fat cells could only increase in number under certain circumstances such as extreme weight gain or at certain times in a person’s life-cycle, such as during pregnancy and during late childhood and early puberty.

But a study on lower body fat cells is making big waves. Researchers found that a gain of only approximately 1.6 kilograms of lower body fat resulted in the creation of 2.6 billion new adipocytes in just 8 weeks. This confirmed that lower body fat accumulates quickly through fat cell multiplication.

I found this to be very interesting because my husband’s issues with weight didn’t start until after his first leg injury, where he didn’t walk for six months. And then for me by two big gains have been post miscarriage So of course the last time my husband was finally almost to his goal… he broke his knee cap and then had shoulder surgery. It seems like the more he would try to feed to build when he was recovering, the common muscle feeding tip that body builders use, the less results he was seeing. This I believe has to do with all of that.

So what can you do to stop some of this and create apoptosis, or fat cell die off?

Inhibition of adipogenesis creates this induction of apoptosis!!

Piceatannol is a metabolite of highly bioavailable resveratrol and in natural foods. Piceatannol is structurally related to resveratrol except for one small modification, and is found in plants alongside resveratrol, and so it’s in your almonds, your blackberries, your grapes. In 2003 studies prompted research interest in piceatannol and its effect on these diseases. They found in one study that it blocked LMP2A, a viral protein-tyrosine kinase implicated in leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and other diseases associated with Epstein Barr Virus. A 2012 Purdue University study found that fat cells in culture, in the presence of piceatannol, alters the timing of gene expressions, gene functions and insulin action, resulting in the delay or complete inhibition of adipogenesis. Could this be why in the 7 weeks on the T30 along you can continue to lose that dreaded belly fat?

I am using a highly bioavailable whole foods berry/grape supplement to see if that support can help create that apoptosis and kill off some of those billions of new fat cells I’ve created through the ups and downs in life, as well as my vegan protein shakes (but you could also use the new Bar that is soy-free).We’re also trying a new program I’ve created called ‘Paleo Blocks’… you know who gets to be the guinea pig for all of my tests, right? 😉 I’ll share when it’s tweaked just right and let you know.

It’s important to know that muscles store glycogen and they use that during hard exercise and that’s why recovery is so important. Research showed that your muscles are most receptive for the effect of insulin in the first two hours after a good workout, and so you need to eat carbs and get that insulin level as high as possible with the kind of food you eat. To raise your insulin levels you need to eat food with a high glycemic index, like oats and dates. The ideal balance between carbohydrates and protein to maximize insulin production yet not slow down the digestion is a ration of four to one. So, you need to add a little bit of protein to your post-training meal.

Date Puree:

Not unlike figs, dates are wonderful for the stomach, bones and blood. They are rich in minerals like calcium, iron, phosphorus, copper and manganese, and help to promote bowel regularity. Their complex natural sugar constitution makes them great for energy and will boost your metabolism.
Date puree can also be substituted for 1 cup of sugar in any recipe. To make your puree just 1 cup pitted dates with 1/2 – 1 cup hot water until a thick paste is made.

Glutithione, the unsung antioxidant in a mom’s routine

Glutathione is the most powerful, prevalent antioxidant in your body? Increasing your glutathione level will naturally increase your energy, detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system. WOW! Who out there reading this doesn’t need to increase your energy. I think every mom I know could use a little more of this… and without the diet soda. Also I find a lot of women I know suffer with PCOS, which can zap your energy, and even more… make it had to even reduce those dreaded fat deposits. A recent study they found that women that struggle with weight loss for a variety of reasons showed a significant decrease in GSH (Glutathione) level, a significant increase in DNA strand breakage and H2O2-induced DNA damage. That means a susceptibility to ovarian cancer. As well glutahtione  support diet change, sleep, exercise and mommy stress reduction. Yes… stress reduction!! So I’m just going to recommend if you are a mom, looking to change your health, or if you have struggled to lose weight, take a look at how you can improve your glutathione levels.

In the studies I’ve viewed they found that for best results they recommend you also supplement with N-Acetyl Cysteine to help the body absorb the glutathione, as well as to support it in leveling off the insulin condition. What is NAC? Well cysteine is found in beta-keratin, the main protein in nails, skin and hair. It helps maintain a healthy, youthful appearance by encouraging collagen production and skin elasticity. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a form of the amino acid cysteine that is most easily absorbed from supplements, and in fact some of the studies looking into this supplement have made it an obviously “NO” to add in as far as I’m concerned. Sulfer rich foods contain all of the natural NAC that you need, and so the easiest way for me to get enough has been with the making sure I get the best quality and potency of my fruits and vegetables rather than using some of those NAC supplements. Glutathione levels vary widely among fruits and vegetables due to environmental factors and the plant’s phase of development, and so it’s important you know where your food is coming from.  And following the plant based proteins again to support this I think of green as a precursor of the strong detoxifier, glutathione. Ta-da!! Amazing isn’t it! Nature is amazing!

What is everyone else … saying about Glutathione

“GSH (Glutathione) is the unsung antioxidant…the one that makes all the others work.” ~Robert C. Atkins, MD

“Glutathione circulates constantly throughout your body neutralizing free radicals and removing dangerous waste products and toxins from your system while increasing your level of energy. When your Glutathione level is high, your overall health is high. You feel good and you look good. You fight off minor illnesses quickly, you have plenty of energy, and you feel mentally and physically alert… you’re at an optimal level of good health.” ~Alan Pressman, DC, Phd, CCN
“Without glutathione, other important antioxidants such as vitamins C and E cannot do their job adequately to protect your body against disease.” Breakthrough In Cell-Defense By: Dr. Allan Somersall, Ph.D., M.D. with Dr. Gustavo Bounous, M.D. FRCS(C)

“Glutathione promotes longevity, protects the body against heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and boosts the immune system strength and is useful fighting autoimmune diseases and other health problems of older adults.”GSH Your Body’s Most Powerful Protector GLUTATHIONE, Third Edition By: Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP

“Your life depends on glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins.”
“Glutathione levels also diminsh as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency.”
“Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases.”
“Because all other antioxidants depend upon the presence of glutathione to function properly, scientists call it ‘the master antioxidant’.” From booklet: “Glutathione: Essential Health AID – Antioxidant. Immune Booster. Detoxifier” By: Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP

“Glutathione has potent anti-viral properties – if you raise the glutathione level you can stop the replication of most any…intracellular pathogen…but glutathione deficiency produces a pro-viral effect.” Paul Cheney, MD

If you are reading this and amazed… then msg me to learn more about the one simple change you can do to raise your levels of glutathione with whole foods.

The Superfood vs the Real Food?

How necessary are these new exotic foods to an otherwise healthful diet filled with real whole foods? Do people need to supplement their lunches with pitaya and baobab? A new warning that a diet rich in regularly produced fruits and vegetables (you mean like carrots, broccoli, bananas?… like our whole foods supplements) is probably sufficient for health and energy and that unusual foods (think “superfoods”) can be unpredictable and even possibly harmful. Many of us don’t think about the way it could impact the absorption of our regular meals, or how it may interact unfavorably with your daily medication. Some would argue that because of serious soil depletion, toxic pollution, and fast moving pace in our lifestyles that in the modern world eating regular old farmed food just isn’t enough to be healthy anymore. I get that, we need to bridge the gap. So yes, supplementation is key. But that doesn’t mean we need to bridge the gap with some special, amazing foods from a far away land.

We were just talking the other day, myself, Dr. Mitra Ray, and another friend, Linda, about these foods from other countries and one of those is quinoa . So let’s talk about that because many of those that jump on the Transform 30 diet think “gluten-free = quinoa”.  Obviously it is a nutrient-dense, gluten-free grain. That’s why my family originally used it. It comes from the Andes, where it has grown alongside potatoes, with roaming llamas and alpaca for thousands of years. Guess what? My family doesn’t use quinoa at all anymore. With the huge demand in Europe and the United States to have more healthy, gluten-free grains, quinoa—which is very high in protein—has become very popular, especially among foodies.

So now, Bolivians cannot afford to buy quinoa, and the quinoa-growing region of the country is also the most malnourished because those who grow quinoa for export now purchase refined grains to eat from the store. In Peru, quinoa now costs more than chicken. As well their own soil now faces decreased soil fertility, as farmers mine their soil to grow quinoa year after year to meet our demand, instead of using traditional methods of rotating their crops with animal pastures to restore fertility and prevent erosion. Asparagus production for export in Peru as well has led to water shortages that locals need.

In India, farmers have seen groundwater levels drop, and have been forced to go further down for water. From 180 or 190 feet, and now even as far down as 550 feet. And the water is getting dirtier, and is polluted more and more with pesticides and chemicals.

Then we get into that which rises to buying local. Transportation costs of food is one of the fastest growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions. A basic diet of imported products can use four times the energy and produce four times the emissions of an equivalent diet from domestic and local foods.

And many of our own precious resources have been “wildcrafted” to almost an extinction in their natural habitats, and this includes considering the growing essential oil business that I love.

Simply put, the richest nations in the world for the most part, are eating their way through ecosystems all over the world, and without a concern for where our future is going. If you want to be organic, you want to be engaged in the “green” discussion, then you have to admit that you are still a consumer, even if you are eating gluten-free quinoa and fair trade chocolate. Over-consumption and sustainability are not compatible to this lifestyle, no matter how eco-friendly we try to be about it. So we need to stop feeling like it’s our right to eat superfoods every day, on demand.

The people who grow it for us often don’t have enough to eat at all because of it. And we need to think globally starting now. That brings me to the Juice Plus+ farm to capsule initiative. Juice Plus+ starts with farm fresh produce that, whenever possible, is carefully grown by midsize family farmers for the best quality nutrition. To avoid shipping the fruits and vegetables long distances, which would compromise their nutritional value, The Juice Plus+ Company locates juicing and drying facilities as close to its farmers as possible. And when that’s not possible, they use a process called Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) to lock in the nutrients of each fruit and vegetable before they have time to degrade. This also allows for a consistent supply of Juice Plus regardless of the growing season. Think about the foods, and the vibrations that you get from it. Why it feels so much better to eat something you grew in your Tower Garden, instead of purchased at the store from the organic farmer in Chile. I know that I am one to talk, because I love my hemp milk so much… but at some point we have to reduce, and now may be the time.

 

 

Release Toxic Energy Before 2017

Now is the time to let go of the toxic energies you’ve been dragging around. We all do it. We pack them up, carry them like honored treasures. Even I have done this for far too long. I started unfollowing people on Facebook this year, and it felt good. I just let them go. I didn’t unfriend them, I didn’t hate them, I just released them to open up space for the joyful people that I care the most to be with. Those toxins build up, take up space and will never help you get to where you want to be in life. Some people are givers, and some are takers. Takers don’t feel badly if they’ve taken advantage of your friendship. Takers don’t feel badly if you are easily replaced in their life. Takers spend their lives sucking energy from others in the pursuit of feeling important. Givers spend their lives dragging the left over toxins from the relationship around, doing the hard work, and giving away their energy in order to help others feel worthy. But it’s time to stop this cycle and start allowing all of the purpose and joy into your heart … where it was meant to go in the first place.



Releasing Toxic Energy



The truth is, they want to feel that way because of some hurt in their being that you CANNOT fix. So … let it go. Think about it…

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

True creativity quite simply starts with balancing your emotions and activating the power of the heart. Through practicing emotional management from the heart, you tap into the highest form of creativity possible–recreating your perceptions of reality. Doc Childre

A complainer is like a Death Eater because there’s a suction of negative energy. You can catch a great attitude from great people. Barbara Corcoran

The heart is our center. It’s the brain that controls everything. It’s the one item that ties the body to the soul. Everything else is a machine. Only in truth if you release this from your heart can you ever achieve real happiness and success. Take a minute, take on my challenge, and release toxic energy before you start this new year.

Ready To GYSB On The 10 Day Shred?

What is this all about? This #GYSB

The Get Your Sexy Back Shred10 is a holistic created program to help you focus on nutrition, fitness, and hydration in an accountable, supportive environment. This challenge is a simple way to help you lean into the Transform 30 Lifestyle. Once you get the idea, you’ll see why the Transform 30 Shakes plus tCapsules rev up your results and really transform your life!

Let’s talk for a minute about those Juice Plus Capsules, can we? It took me a long time to actually look them over. I didn’t understand them, and of course I was very against soy no matter how unprocessed ever since I started reacting to it. I did used to eat edamame a long time ago, so when I started reacting to soy milk, I just gave it all up.

I was sharing the capsules with someone just the other day and they said to me, ” I’m sure your Juice Plus are good products sweetie but, looks like limited to Vit A, C, E, Folate!” First off… sweetie… I KNOW!! However since he is older than I am, I’ll let it go. But I told him that it’s just a label he’s reading. We have no control over how the FDA has determined labels should be created. They are looking for specific items for Nutritional Labels to show. It’s the same for orange juice or for a box of oatmeal. However these whole food capsules have the whole orange in the capsule. It has the entire broccoli. It’s so far beyond the idea of a vitamin, which is why it doesn’t have a Supplement Fact Label, but rather a Nutritional Fact Label. It’s food. It takes just six hours to go from farm to capsule, and I cannot say that about most of your food in the market. You would have to go straight to the Farmer’s Market or the Farm to get that sort of fresh, raw whole foods, however you wouldn’t get the variety.

In our ten day program you will have online fitness ideas, additional recipes, daily connection posts where you will be required to share how you are doing. Remember you only get out of the program what you put into the program. It’s been verified by science that those that reach out for accountability and support lose more weight, and remain healthier in life than those that do not. Some of your posts may just be what you ate, maybe it will be how you felt, or a motivational photo… but as you engage others will do the same.
