The spiritual connection is like gravity; it is always present whether you believe in it or not. It is the wind which rustles your hair. The sun which warms your body. The smell of flowers in the air, and the flowers which send their fragrance upward. The air which carries the fragrance. It is the beginning of your first thought. The end of your last. It is the idea which sparked your most brilliant moment. The glory of it's fulfillment. It is the feeling which fueled the most loving thing you ever did. And the part of you which yearns for that feeling again and again. We are never alone. We just don't always see what is right there in front of us, around us, and in us. Open your eyes. #spirit #universe #faith #nature #ojai #love #light #clouds #conversationswithgod #loveisallyouneed #inspirationalquote
I've been all about the coffee replacements lately, drinking and drinking some of the best swaps. As much as I love and adore coffee it doesn't always treat me right. I've found it can do a number on my blood sugar, causing me to be more tired and more foggy brained, and even makes me sweaty at times (I know 😒). So I finally decided to see what else is out there and happily found there is a lot! From superfood hot chocolate from @essentiallivingfoods to a matcha chai latte from @onnit and of course the beloved golden turmeric milk from @gaiaherbs I've found that these replacements offer so much for health. While coffee certainly has some health benefits, these alternatives do so much more - anti cancer, anti inflammatory, blood sugar balancing, stress reduction, liver, heart and digestive support... the list goes on. So I made a list of my top favorite coffee swaps which is now on my website. Check them out and let me know what your favorites are!
The world's biggest acai bowl perfect for filling my never ending love for these superfood breakfast bowls. It's like eating a bowl of ice cream except it is one of the richest sources of antioxidants on earth. Antioxidants are essential for protecting our cells from damage from toxins, reducing inflammation, and keeping us young at a cellular level. Not to mention, important for cancer and disease prevention. For these reasons and more acai bowls are by far and away one of my absolute favorite things to eat. Just add some gf granola, goji, coconut and cacao nibs and I'm set! Anyone else obsessed as me? #acai #acaibowls #beaming #superfoodbowl
There is something really perfect about this plate of food. It's simplicity is everything. By not over dressing, over cooking or trying to make things they are not, you allow the beauty of the ingredients to come through. This is why I love plants. They are inherently so rich in flavor, texture and complexity and they often don't need anything other than their selves. When eaten in conjunction they highlight each other making the most divine meal, and all it takes is buying fresh, organic, well grown ingredients. Cucumber, squash, butter beans, kale, quinoa, goat cheese, mint and a red pepper spread. #rainbowbowl
This green smoothie packed with chlorella, kale and cilantro is part of my new heavy metal cleanse that I launched yesterday. Heavy metal toxicity is a real concern. Most us of have levels that are causing real symptoms such as anxiety, brain fog, poor concentration, memory loss, candida, nerve pain, ADD and ADHD, fatigue, depression and aching joints (and these are just some symptoms). The problem is that we and our children are constantly exposed, most often from innocent-looking sources like your cookware, favorite tuna sushi roll, dental fillings, household paint, plumbing, and children's toys. • Heavy metal toxicity in babies and children is also a very real concern. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that blood samples from newborns contained an average of 287 toxins. Even the umbilical cord has been found to be contaminated. This toxicity can lead to learning disabilities, behavioral issues and even conditions such as ADD and ADHD. • For these reasons I designed an easy and effective heavy metal cleanse. Using targeted nutrition and diet, it can help clear heavy metals like lead, mercury and arsenic (yep, arsenic - found in our drinking water). I personally noticed the clearance of brain fog and greatly increased focus and concentration, but there are many positive side effects. I highly encourage everyone to consider a heavy metal cleanse, and even more so for those who are hoping to become pregnant. Head to link in bio for more info, and happy Friday!
Starting off my weekend in Boulder right with this Matcha Latte made with cashew milk and coconut sugar. To die 🍵. Any places in Boulder I need to see, eat or drink at? #matcha #matchalatte #bouldercolorado #boulderorganic #bouldereats
So I'm officially boycotting cold and grey weather. No more rain, no more snow and please no more below 30 degree weather. I am so ready for some sunshine, flowers, and green! Not to mention all the fresh veggies and fruits that come along with it. So in efforts to pretend like it's springtime, I am eating salads like this ALL week. Because nothing says spring to me like some arugula and asparagus, and of course all the things that love to go with it - dried strawberries and blueberries, goat cheese, apples, zucchini and hard boiled eggs. #springsalad #vegetariansalad #superfoodsalad
It's the limitless and the freedom of the ocean that makes it so much more than something magnificent to be seen, but something to feel through every cell of the body. Coming back home to this very spot is like finally like getting a real breath of fresh air 😊 #manhattanbeach #manhattanbeachpier #ocean #sea
