Wellness Wednesday: Sometimes you gotta make it work…

Peace Soulstars,

Let’s admit that we can all do better when it comes to diet.  This list of alkaline superfoods is just a helpful reminder that there are options when it comes to health!  By now,  most of us should know that healthy doesn’t mean boring and bland.   It’s mind over matter.  If you think it than it shall be.  It starts with changing your perception of food.

I get side eyes from time to time whenever I share some of my new discoveries like bee pollen for instance.  It looks odd to some and like nothing they want to put in their mouths but it is known for being one of the best superfoods out here.  Alone bee pollen does not taste good at all to me but when I add it to a bowl of coconut yogurt, fruit and granola topped with cacao nibs, it’s the bomb!

I make it work for me.  Mix those not-so-good-by-themselves foods with what you do like.  Make it work!  Don’t overwhelm yourself either. Pace yourself. At the end of the day,  you have to ask yourself:  Is this food feeding or fighting dis-ease?

Remember dis-ease cannot thrive in an alkaline body.  Don’t stress though.  Healthy doesn’t have to be stressful either.  If it’s stressful you just may need to take a different approach to find what works for you.  It’s that simple.

Love and light,

Wellness Wednesday: Get Your Water In!

Peace Soulstars,

I don’t know what the summer temps are like in your area but the dmv is blazing! Temps in the 90’s with what I call “that Carolina heat”!  Water intake needs to be up to par…No exceptions.  I know that many people don’t like to drink water because of the “taste”.  Whether you like the taste or not you have to get it in somehow.  You can simply add lemon or fruit to it which takes it to another level!

Personally, I’ve found that when I add lemon to my water I can drink it down in no time.  Not saying that the point of making water more palatable is so you can guzzle it down in record timing.  Adding lemon, lime or fruit to your water makes it taste better. It can also add nutrients to the water which improve digestion.

This is precisely why I drink lemon water first thing in the morning and throughout the day.  I’ve noticed many benefits including clearer skin.  I’m sharing these tips from guthealthproject.com which I found to be helpful for adding variety to water not only for taste but for increased health benefits!

Love and light,

 

Wellness Wednesday: Have a fruitful breakfast!

Peace Soulstars,

Fruit for breakfast was an on and off thing for me in the past but I’ve been making it routine to have fruit for breakfast!  Alongside my cuppa matcha green tea (yes, I’m that person who drinks hot tea in the summer), I have a mango and banana.

Sometimes it’s just a plate of an assortment of fruit.  It makes me feel good, satisfied (not full…there’s a big difference), and it just works.  How? Some benefits I’ve noticed personally: my energy and mental clarity have improved.

Check out a list of benefits of eating fruit for breakfast below from one good reason:
