Lego Kaylee… And yes, my Lego pie is vegan and gluten free.
Good morning! Here is a sparkly breakfast recipe. Sprouted some buckwheat then blended it with chia, fresh almond milk, raw honey, cinnamon and vanilla powder. Topped it with berries, banana and hemp seeds. DIVINE.
Taking your #supplements can be FUN! Thanks to Katie Dalebout’s sage advice I haven’t forgotten to take mine in a week! Place a handful of your supplements into cute little cups with a cup of water nearby. It’s helpful to remember WHY you are taking them (I wrote little cards that reminds me the magical benefits if each one). YAY! Thanks again #wellnesswonderland!
Beautiful on the inside. Beautiful on the outside.
I am so grateful for this moment.
May your inner self be happy and secure. #yogiteawisdom
I started off today with a case of the Mondays - I was out the door late with the kids and ended up driving one of the kids to school (we missed the bus!). This mishap turned into an amazing NPR morning opportunity! Just as I turned the station to Morning Edition, exciting and promising health news was revealed to me for the first time.
It’s not new to me that a healthy dose of the “good bacteria” in our guts are extremely beneficial: balancing the pH levels in our digestive track, keeping things runs smoothly down there and keeping our immune systems on point. What I wasn’t aware of is the brain-body connection is being studied and results are showing that our digestive flora can help alleviate certain brain conditions such as anxiety and depression.
THIS IS SO EXCITING! Not only did I make my first home-made batch of sauerkraut last week (thank you coach Carly!), I am someone who has struggled with seasonal depression and anxiety basically my entire life.
More and more ways are being revealed to me to love and nourish this part of myself. Yoga, exercise, sunlight, therapy…. has obviously helped A LOT - but it hasn’t been enough at times.
It makes perfect sense to me that the what’s going on in other areas of your body can affect your mind. A simple example: When you are sick - your moods levels plummet. When you are well again - your mood gets better. Why not apply this principle in more subtle ways in the body?
If you are interested in learning more of the science behind this please listen to the audio clip.
HOW CAN I GET MORE OF THE GOOD STUFF?!
I suggest incorporating some good probiotics into your diet to get more good bacteria in your gut.
- Kefir - add it to your smoothies!
- Sauerkraut - click here for a great recipe - a good side for any meal!
- Miso - who doesn’t love a good Miso soup?
- Kim Chi - spicy! yummy!
You can easily buy all of these things at your local market or make them at home. I love adding my own lovin’ energy into the foods I eat for the most nutritional goodness possible! Check out a picture of my recent sauerkraut adventures below.
It couldn’t get any easier than this!
Take a moment to notice the beauty all around you. The beauty in the simple, everyday things.
Share some fun yoga poses with the little ones in your life.
HAVE FUN TODAY!
