A Sneak Peak At What A RAW Vegan Athlete Consumes!

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately on how I get my day started, and what kind of food I eat throughout the day.

body

If you’re ready, I’ll give you a sneak peak at what a RAW Vegan Athlete’s day looks like!

I always begin my mornings by waking up, of course, and then I go right for the hydration pump! Thats right, I rehydrate to get the juices flowing, and drink at least 32oz of spring water with fresh squeezed lemon, and sometimes, if I need a little more pep in my step, I’ll add a little cayenne pepper and some turmeric powders to shake things up a bit. This really opens up the cardiovascular system  and gets some serious blood pumping and supports the immune system.

 

The rest of my day typically looks like this…90% of the time I eat Raw organic fruits and vegetables, and the other 10% of the time, I might choose to  balance out with steamed veggies, rice , sprouted quinoa and/or MAYBE a baked potato. I will often go with 3 big green smoothies with lots of bananas and dates as my base along with a few other goodies, and plug in 3 32oz. jars of alkaline green juices, which almost always includes one of my favorite ingredients, watercress!

D I N N E R is always a treat and like an art show for me, where I get to be CREATIVE, have fun, and INDULGE! After fasting most of the day and giving my digestive tract a break from digesting heavy foods, I am ready to eat by 5 or 6 pm. I’ll typically make a HUGE rainbow salad and top it off with all of the healthy fats and fresh living sprouts that I can get in there!

Oh and I can’t forget about the best part, the dressing!  I go CRAZY with the dressing and make a huge amount of it! I almost always use an avocado base with a citrus fruit of some sort to give it some serious zing and zest, and then pour it on heavy with some kale chips and sit and ENJOY with a big smile!

I really don’t have a specific regiment that I follow, I just focus on abundance, and filling in 90% of my day with Organic Raw foods, smoothies, and or green juices, and leave the other 10% as what I call wiggle room. I do love the energy and the

 

way I feel when I am on the green smoothies and juices though, it’s powerful stuff! Don’t take my word for it, give it a try!

I love this saying, “Nothing looks as good as being healthy feels”

Have the best day ever friends!

The real truth about eating fruit is exposed

Grapes
IMWellness

Fruit has had a bad reputation over the years and many people are afraid to eat it, because of fear of gaining weight or getting too much sugar. Raw fruits and vegetables are balanced in their simple sugars, amino acids and fatty acids. The fructose sugar found in Raw fruits is a simple sugar that helps strengthen and energize cells of the body, and this is one reason why your body becomes stronger and more energetic on these foods. Simple sugars also aid alkalization of the tissues, which is vital for tissue regeneration and vitality. Fructose is the highest electrical sugar in nature and is also superb for brain and nerve regeneration.

The best time to consume your fruit is first thing in the morning before heavier meals. Fruits and melons digetst very quickly. When combined with foods that digest slowly, their sugars are held up in the stomach. This results in the fermintation of the undigested sugar, which then yields alcohol. This alcohol from fermenatation of food sugars raises blood alcohol levels. So always remember to eat your fruits alone. The body responds best to eating mono fruit meals, which is simply eating as much as you want of any specific fruit. Two of my favorite mono meals are melons and dark grapes. The darker the grapes, the more cleansing effects they will have. There is an old saying about melons. Eat melons alone or leave them alone, because they do not combine well with other fruit. Melons are extremely hydrating and nurishing to the adrenal glands, making it a great fruit to energize the cells and to get your morning off to a great start! Check with your local farmers markets to see what fruits are in season, and give it a go!

Did you know that eating fresh organic raw fruit actually saves energy for the body and cells, because it doesn’t require insulin or ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to transport the nutrients across the cell walls, it’s simply pulled or absorbed through the cell wall by diffusion. Because of this, eating fruit can be benificial for diabetics, especially if they remove complex sugars from their diets. Complex sugars create excessive glucose levels in the blood, which then creates more insulin demand. I am not a medical doctor, and this is not medical advice, so you should always consult with your medical doctor and monitor your blood sugar levels when eating fruit.

Have fun on your health journey and please continue to follow my blog. Many thanks for reading this article.

Have a Healthy, Happy Day!!!

Having a hard time concentrating or remembering things? Five powerful herbs that enhance memory and brain function

Herbs have been around since the dawn of time, and have been used to find remedy to a number of different illnesses. The herbs in this article are especially good at enhancing cognitive function, and helping to increase your brainpower.

Top five herbs that enhance and stimulate memory and brain function:

  • Gotu Kola– has been used for centuries by traditional healers to treat a wide array of illnesses and medical conditions. Traditional uses include: Improvement of cognitive function, the healing of wounds, treatment of skin conditions such as leprosy and psoriasis.
  • Yerba Mate– Yerba mate is a central nervous system stimulant containing caffeine, but it also contains a number of other nutrients, including antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. Yerba mate is said to be a safe and effective nervous system stimulant with very few side effects and many health benefits. Yerba Mate is extremely high in antioxidants and has about 90% more antioxidants than the popular green tea.
  • Ginkgo– is a popular “brain herb” that boosts memory and enhance cognitive performance. The two biggest components in ginkgo are flavonoids and trepenoids. Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants. Studies have revealed that flavonoids protect the nerves, blood vessels, heart muscle, and retina from damage. Trepenoids aid in increasing blood flow.
  • Panex Ginseng– Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb, which adapts itself to the needs of the body. It is believed to be an excellent tonic that benefits one’s stamina, Libido, helps boost energy levels, and helps improve concentration and thinking ability. **Its not recommended to take this for long periods of time.
  • Rosemary- it is referred to as the herb of “Remembrance”. Rosemary is used in cosmetics, adding flavor to food and beverages. It can be consumed as a fresh herb (whole or liquid extract) or as a dry herb for teas. Rosemary oil can be used as an effective aromatherapy protocol for poor memory, improving mental clarity, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. If you use the oils, It’s best to apply a carrier oil like almond, avocado, or grape seed oil first for best results.

* Always read about the side effects before experimenting with these herbs and or see your health care practitioner.

How to make Delicious a Chocolate Pudding that’s all natural

choco pudding 2 Do you want to take your sweet tooth to the next level in a healthy way? Of course you do! This creamy, delicious, all natural recipe is one to try, and you don’t have to feel guilty. The simplicity involved in making this pudding will blow your socks off. With a few simple ingredients and a blender, preferably a Vitamix (for power purposes), you will get instant satisfaction without having to, or even wanting to splurge on something you may regret later on.

I must say, one of my all time favorite sugar craving curbers, are dates. When you include them in a recipe like this pudding, you will get the right amount of sugar to satisfy your sugar “need”, as well as the perfect amount to sustain you energy wise.

 

Chocolate Pudding Ingredients:

-1 Ripe Avocado

– 1-2 Ripe Bananas ( i.e., Brown spots)

-6-8 Pitted Dates

-1/4 Cup of Cacao Powder

-1 Tsp of Cinnamon

-1 Tbsp of Vanilla extract

-2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

– Dash of Sea Salt

 

Preparation:

Add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

 

Toppings:

I like to add a 1/2 tsp of coconut flakes and some freshly cut organic Strawberries.

 

The most challenging thing about preparing this recipe, is to not eat all of the pudding before you serve it!!!

 

Have a Healthy, Happy Day!!!

Chocolate Coconut Truffles

coco balls 1 We all get a sweet tooth…It’s inevitable! Whether you are on the road, had a stressful day at work, or just finished a workout, this recipe is sure to satisfy that sweet tooth. So instead of going to the store and purchasing something that is full of processed and refined sugars, why not purchase the following ingredients and ensure a delectable, guilt-free treat. The recipe I am sharing has been a huge hit with friends and family. I know you will enjoy these little critters just as much as I do!

 

You will need a food processor to prepare the truffles.

Chocolate Truffle ingredients:

– 1 Cup of Soaked Cashews (Soak in filtered water for 4 hours)

– 4 Tbsp of Cacao Powder (I use Navitas)

-1 Heaping Tsp of Maca Powder (I use Navitas)

– 1 Cup of Soaked, pitted Dates

– 4 Tbsp of Coconut Flakes

– 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract

– 1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil

– 1 Tsp Sea Salt

– A few swirls around the mixture of Raw Agave Nectar

Put the soaked Cashews and Dates into the food processor and pulse for a few seconds to break down and blend the dates and the cashew mixture together. Then, add the remaining ingredients, except the agave, and process until the ingredients are blended together nicely. Tip…I add the agave last, squeezing it clockwise and in a swirl-like motion, 3-4 times, around the food processor. Then, I pulsate it around again a few more times to mix it in thoroughly. coco balls 2

Use this POWERFUL herb to Detoxify Heavy Metals, Alkalize and Improve Immunity

Cilantro
Cilantro-Natures Natural Heavy Metal Detoxifier

In this article, I will share with you the benefits on this POWERFUL Detoxifying herb known as Cilantro that has been shown to be extremely beneficial in detoxifying heavy metals from the body & boosting immunity.

Today, we live in a world where environmental toxins are all around us. Many of us have been exposed to heavy metals of some sort through our diet, medications, from the environment,  and or through work and play. Although there are some environmental toxins that we can’t avoid, there are many that we can avoid, such as what we put on our skin, in our hair, in our foods and use as household cleaners.

By educating ourselves and being informed, we can make better choices and avoid many of these environmental toxins.

BENEFITS OF CILANTRO:

  • Immune booster because of its high Anti-Oxidant properties
  • Rich source of Vitamin A, C, K and has traces of B Vitamins and folic acid
  • Helps with digestion
  • High in Antioxidants
  • Excellent source of calcium, supporting healthy bones
  • High in Omega 3 & 6 making it a great anti-inflammatory agent
  • Great for Eyesight because of the high amounts of beta-carotene and anti-oxidants
  • Powerful heavy metal detoxifier because it binds to heavy metals and loosens them so they can eliminated from the body.
  • Reduces the risk of kidney stones because of its diuretic and detoxifying properties

Here are a few ways you can implement cilantro into your lifestyle. Cilantro is a great addition to most salads and dressings, adding that perfect amount of pizazz and flavor. It can also be a great addition to any juice recipes, because of its fresh taste, without being overpowering.

One of my favorite recent juices with Cilantro is:

-1 cucumber

-1 head of romaine

-1/4 head of green cabbage

-1 bundle of cilantro

-1 green apple

-1/2 Lime

sinst.org/wheatgrass/benefits-of-wheatgrass

I’ve been using Wheatgrass for many years with great results. Wheatgrass is available in juice, powder,tablets, and I’ve even seen it sold in Whole Foods as a frozen item.  Most juice bars sell grass shots for $3-4 per ounce and some offer it as an addition to your green juice or smoothie.

REMEDY Juice to Lower Your Blood Pressure

imageIn todays modern world, most Medical Doctors are treating high blood pressure with pharmaceuticals to mitigate the symptoms. This means that you have to live on medication, it’s treatment based thinking. I would like to offer a different approach, Detoxification. In detoxification, we are more concerned with addressing the causative factors that brought the high blood pressure into existence, and then fixing them so you can live with out the medication and heal naturally.

Detoxification Lifestyle includes:

Incorporating a RAW food lifestyle “Natural Foods in their Natural States” has been shown to be very beneficial in healing the body naturally. The plant Kingdom is VERY powerful and can provide us with all the remedy we need to THRIVE.

We also have access to botanical healing herbs that are tissue specific and very POWERFUL as well and will strengthen the glands responsible for high blood pressure. High blood pressure is linked to the kidney and adrenal glands. Most Americans have weakened kidneys and Adrenals, the question is how weak are they?

The Standard American diet, processed foods and genetic weaknesses passed down play a big role in this topic. I encourage you to try a eating more RAW foods for one week and see how much better you feel. That will be an indication that you are on the right track. As always, check with a holistic healer or practitioner before beginning a detox program.

Taking back our health into our own hands is a liberating experience! No more living in fear that something can’t be reversed. Mother Nature has all the answers we are searching for, you just have to trust, believe and have faith.

Juicing recipe to help lower blood pressure:

2 apples

1 bundle of cilantro

1 bundle of celery

1 lemon

1 lime
