10 days of green smoothies!!

 

I haven’t blogged in awhile. But I am back. A lot has been going on in my life, which is one of the chief reasons for me starting this green smoothie journey. On Sunday, May 1st 2016, I will start my 10 day green smoothie cleanse. I will be using the second program that J.J. Smith has created in her book.jjsmith

Why am I using someone else’s program if I am a holistic health practitioner, health and wellness coach and holistic nutrition consultant?

– If you are a doctor, you don’t perform surgery on yourself. If you are lawyer (and a smart one)  you do not represent yourself in court. Sometimes you need assistance from others. I have fallen off of the wagon more times than I can count. I have my reasons, and I am aware of what they are. To be honest, my diet is crap right now. I have a HUGE sweet tooth and my junk food cravings were out of control. As I have stated, I had a LOT going on in my life and just fell off. Things are finally turning around and I want to get back on track. In addition to that, J.J. has a large following and many people are joining in and its always good to have support.

What are your expectations?

-I am a vegetarian. Not a very good one but I am one. It’s always a good idea to cleanse your system to rid the body of toxins. This will be a fresh start for the summer. Doing a cleanse is a natural way to lose weight. I am not over weight but I can afford to lose a few pounds. The recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables is 5-9 servings a day. You can get that in a smoothie. Other benefits include but are not limited to; increased energy (like I need that, I am already on level 100) mental clarity and focus, clearer skin and so much more.

I will blog and tweet for the next 1o days, so I hope that you will follow me. I am open to your questions and comments.  Don’t forget to sign up and receive my blog via email.

Thanks in advance.

Amusing technology

20120707-223321.jpg

Technology is great!! I am typing the brief blog from my WordPress app on my iPhone!! I am moving up like George and Weezy. So really, I have no excuses for not busting out at least one blog a week.

Anyhoooo… I came across this pic on pinterest.com and had to blog about it. When I was a kid, McDonalds was a treat or when my mom didn’t cook.. Which was rare. Back then the sign on
McDonalds said “1 million sold.” now I think it says “1 billion sold”. I will admit, I was part of that 1 billion. I loved the fries. When I was transitioning to vegetarianism, I could have sworn I heard a commercial say “Now serving REAL chicken tenders.” like what the hell were you serving before? Makes you wonder. I hear all the time people talk about the vegetarian protein that I eat but when I compare that to the FAKE meat from McDonalds, some how the conversation ends quickly.

There’s much to be learned from a plant based diet.

New Chef in Town!!

Before I purchased my first house, I started buying the things I would need like bathroom accessories, kitchen stuff and pots and pans. I had no idea what Spirit was doing back then however as I reflect on it now, I can see where Spirit was going. Back then I was making big bucks or what I considered big bucks so I could afford to get the good stuff. I had no idea that I would later become a vegetarian or so health conscious when I decided to buy my pots and pans. The pots and pans that I purchased were Teflon free.

“The nonstick coating used in DuPont’s Teflon® pans has been found to release one or more of 15 different toxic gases when heated to certain temperatures. There are alternatives to Teflon cookware. Safer options include stainless steel, ceramic or cast iron. Anodized aluminum cookware is regarded by some to be better than Teflon, but others feel that aluminum is concerning as it is a potentially toxic metal.One of the main chemicals used in the manufacturing process of Teflon® and other nonstick pans is perflurooctanoic acid (PFOA) also known as C-8. This chemical has led to cancer and birth defects in lab animals, and may have led to birth defects in DuPont plant workers.”

Aside from food tasting better, its better for you to cook on non Teflon cookware. Choose to live a healthier life.

Rose in Bloom

I love roses. Not just getting them, because I also buy them for myself to lift the mood, but because the fragrance. I’ve used roses for a number of love spells and products that I make. Roses have a feminine energy and are associated with many of the Deities such as Isis, Adonis, Cupid and Aurora.  Rose petals or rose hips have been used in healing spells and mixtures for centuries.  It is said that when sprinkled around the house, rose petals calm personal stress and personal upheavals. 
Did you know that you can eat flowers? Certain flowers have been shown to contain important nutrients. Used in herbal medicine, rose petals with its sweet and warmth acts on the liver and spleen. In healing, it is used to dry colds, clear mucus discharges and harmonizes blood.”Bacteria die within five minutes when contacted with fresh rose petals which makes rose a perfect medicine for fighting skin diseases. Fresh rose petals will help cure festering wounds and burns; they may also alleviate allergic itching. Ancient doctors used rose water to treat upset nerves, fumed patients suffering from lungs diseases with rose incense and gave extracts of rose petals to patients suffering from heart and kidney diseases.”

More Carrots than Bugs Bunny!!

The other day, the WorthCoach and I were discussing the contents of our refrigerator. She stated that she had received a boat load of carrots and didn’t know what she was going to do with them. I had received a couple of bags myself that were almost on their way out when given they were given to me. I didn’t want to throw them away but had to do something and quickly. We came up with, well juice them. 
Juicing is the best!! Fresh juices from juicing contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fluids necessary for body function. Carrots are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Extremely high in pro-vitamin A and contains vitamins B, C, D, E and K. The minerals found in carrots are calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium and trace minerals.  Skin and hair benefit from the protein and minerals found in carrots. While I am not particularly found of plain carrot juice, when mixed with other juices, it can be quite tasty. For example this healthy bone tonic supplies calcium for maintenance of healthy bones which includes 6 carrots, 4 kale leaves, 4 sprigs of parsley and half an apple. Drink up!!

Energy drinks vs ENERGY Drinks

Growing up as an athlete, Gatorade was THEE sports drink.You weren’t considered a REAL athlete unless you had a few bottles in your workout bag. Now, there are so many energy drinks to choose from, it can get confusing as to what is what. So let me give you my clever perspective on energy drinks.

The commercials boasted about how it gives you energy and fills up with electrolytes. 
Most of the energy drinks are loaded with sugar and caffeine. With such a jolt from all of that, you are sure to get a buzz. The loaded caffeine and sugar, quickly spikes up your blood levels in addition to the adrenals only to bring you back down just as quick.  By coming down so quickly, the body becomes sluggish and craves for more. Before you know it, you are drinking another can of sugar and caffeine to bring you back up. This cycle can put wear and tear on the adrenals and blood sugar levels to the point of causing damage. Very few brands of energy drinks contain any of the necessary vitamins and minerals that you need to sustain the momentum you have without drinking more. 
There are all natural drinks out that offer the energy you need to get your through the day and add the necessary vitamin and minerals you need. Green drinks for example, depending on what’s in them, can provide a full serving of fruits and vegetables, fiber and in some cases even protein. All natural beverages like teas, elixirs and tinctures can provide the energy you are looking for without the sugar and caffeine. Not only are these drinks loaded with energy producing ingredients, they provide vitamins and minerals to help heal the body and keep it functioning properly. Herbs, flowers, herbal extracts and spices go into the development of teas, elixirs and tinctures. These ingredients contribute the spiritual properties of the plants and flowers for healing on all levels, which make them great energy drinks.

Sugar Addiction

Most people are addicted to sugar and don’t know it. For me, I think it is the hardest thing to give up. Sugar is in almost everything. “The average American consumes an astounding 2-3 pounds of sugar each week, which is not surprising considering that highly refined sugars in the forms of sucrose (table sugar), dextrose (corn sugar), and high-fructose corn syrup are being processed into so many foods such as bread, breakfast cereal, mayonnaise, peanut butter, ketchup, spaghetti sauce, and a plethora of microwave meals.”  One of the reasons people get sick is that the foods they are eating are not immune boosting foods. “One of sugar’s major drawbacks is that it raises the insulin level, which inhibits the release of growth hormones, which in turn depresses the immune system.”A lot of people complain about loss of calcium in the bones. A possible culprit could be sugar. “Sugar interferes with absorption of calcium and magnesium.” Aside from diabetes, sugar can cause other diseases and illnesses such as osteoporosis, food allergies, headaches and depression to name a few.
