A Different Kind of Kale

A Different Kind of Kale

Purium

 

The other night I had a bit of a craving and decided to mix this up and see how it tasted!!  Oh boy, there was a little party going on in my mouth!!  It was exactly what I was in the mood for.  It also made me realize how simple my eating has gotten and yet so satisfying.  Also, how when guided by my body – once you clean up and get rid of so much junk, processed foods, sugar etc as a main staple – the body really will lead you to to want healthy foods and you can enjoy them.  I am not into eating things just because they are ‘healthy’ but what my body likes and wants – clean, green, alive, and healthy.

It wasn’t always that way.  I also realize as I walk down streets that are full of restaurants that some, most foods don’t call out to me or do I want them.  I am not controlled by food, emotional eating, my taste buds or addictive chemicals or sugar – woohoo!!!

Now please don’t get me wrong – I am not anal about it, or over controlling, it just is and it is very cool.  I share that only because of my past with food when it did control me, when I ate for emotional comfort, when I let food control me and my life – this is so freeing it’s hard to put into words!!

Anyways, this is a very quick and easy yet tasty and nutrient dense recipe, it’s vegan, gluten free and pretty raw of course though depending on how much or what temperature you warm / heat the kale – I hope you enjoy it as much as I am!!

 

– Kale – as much as you want – I put mine in a pot (yes) with just a couple of drops of water (you can do that with good quality stainless cookware) and basically just heated it – I did not steam or cook it

–  Coconut oil that was warmed (no not in a microwave)  Coconut oil (Purium’s Coconut Oil)will melt easily – so even if you put it in a glass dish and put it in hot water and let it sit in that for a few minutes- just make sure the water doesn’t mix with the oil

–  Minced Garlic – as much as you like – I love fresh Garlic and no one was around that I would be kissing or talking with so I went all out – but use how much you want

–  pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt

– 1 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s Spirulina)  this is such a nutrient dense Superfood that is easily digestable – my body loves this stuff

Mix the Spirulina, Garlic and Coconut oil together well and drizzle over the Kale.

Eat and Enjoy!!!

Healthy IS Cool!!!

Alive with Energy

There is a saying – ‘You Are What You Eat’.

Just by looking at this piece of Kiwi is it not screaming out fresh, alive, vibrancy, health, taste?

Take a second today and look at what you are deciding to put into YOUR body and what is it screaming out?

Is it the above or something else………..

You do have choice!

Fresh Foods

Papaya

How many fresh foods are you adding in to your way of eating?

I had an Organic Papaya given to me the other day and it was so tasty, so delicious and so fast and convenient!!!

Fresh foods are loaded with Enzymes – something I will go into more later in a future post.

I challenge you today to eat some fresh foods and see if you can really taste them – savor them – that really is eating healthy.

Remember it’s not what we do sometimes – it’s what we do most of the time!

This really is the K.I.S.S. method!!  (Keep It Simple Sweetheart)

I’m on Day 4 of my  Transformational Cleanse – yesterday was a hump day – I felt it – today much better, when I am finished with the cleanse I will post more recipes

otherwise I would eat them!! lol

Here’s to your health

Have an awesome day!!

Met up with some friends today and headed out to the Non-Gmo and Gluten Free Expo in downtown Vancouver.

My eyes truly got opened up today holy crap!!  No wonder people truly are confused about healthy eating!!!

image non-gmo

It’s great to see people standing up and bringing out information on GMO’s and what they are about and products – whether packaged or fresh to the public.  If you don’t know much I highly recommend watching Genetic Roulette and GMO OMG – we truly need to be aware especially for our kids!!

You will see this sign on your food and it will appear on more foods in the future!

What really opened my eyes up today and actually sadden me for a bit until I realized wow I really am on a mission and love where I am at!!

image gluten freeThis Gluten free thing has gotten way out of hand, please don’t get me wrong – I know if someone has Celiac disease it is very serious.

I think though it’s the new way to sell package foods – it doesn’t matter that it has copious amounts of sugar, palm oil, canola oil to name just a few but so much is being labelled gluten free is kind of a joke.  I mean I know there is wheat in so many products that really shouldn’t be BUT they are processed products – I don’t care how much ‘natural’, ‘organic’ or other label they slap on it – it’s still processed even when labelled ‘Gluten Free’ and that is a good part of the problem.

Yes i know our crops are sprayed with Round Up – what you didn’t know that?? Watch the documentaries.  The best way to deal with that is eat way more whole foods, real foods and super foods from Mother Nature – notice there are no labels?  The more fresh and whole the better.

It’s been a busy start to the New Year for me but after today it has only shown me that I need to stand up and be louder – people are being fooled and their health is more important than that!!

Eat, Live & Be Real!!

10 Days New

Have YOU heard of the 10 Day Transformation ?

The first thing you need to know is this is your best natural way to jump start your weight loss, reset your metabolism, increase your energy, stop processed food addictions, end bad eating habits, reduce or eliminate any joint pain, and achieve better health!

DITCH THE DIETING – There is a SOLUTION TO THE FOOD POLLUTION!!! You will not find this Whole-Food, non-GMO, Organic, Super Food, Detox Cleansing, Transformation equal anywhere on the planet! This is NOT supplements, starvation, processed, yucky tasting ‘meal replacements’!!!!!  This is the 10 Day Transformation with Purium.  Purium is short for Pure and Premium.

It sounds like it’s almost a miracle pill or quick fix but it’s not!!

There is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body!!!!  Just look around – our society is proving it!!

David Sandoval – author of the Green Foods Bible and Founder of Purium Health Foods is on a mission to help as many people as possible to better health – through Whole foods and Superfoods.  Real but convenient for the every day person, I mean lets face it life is busy and we often grab foods on the go that well aren’t very healthy.  What if they could be?  What if they could be so nutrient dense that your body starts waking up? Starts feeling better? Starts craving less processed or sugary or chemical laden foods?  What if you actually starting eating even less as your body is being fed properly?  What if you could stop counting calories? What if you could have more energy? What if you could have less digestion issues?  What if you could lower your food bill?  What if you could become more vibrant?  What if you could become more aware of when you eat?  What if you could wake up your taste buds for real foods?  What if you go let go of coffee or a caffeine addiction?  What if you could become more present?  What if you could start eating healthier? What if you could ditch the dieting?

What if………….

Yes the 10 Day Transformation can help with that BUT YOU have to be willing to do it, go through it and commit to it.

For some change can be hard, there might be 2 or 3 days that are uncomfortable or not fun – let’s face it – if you have been eating anything less than 100% organic, non-gmo real, whole foods you will have some crap in your body, and if you have been eating a bunch of sugar, caffeine and processed foods you will have a bunch of crap in your body.  Once you get through those few days (and they do pass fast believe it or not) the results and last few days are amazing.  You will feel great, you will eat less food, you will have more energy and more.

NO this is NOT hype, this is based on science, results and my personal results from so far doing 3 Transformations and embarking on my 4th?

Why you ask??

Good Question!!

Because I am human, I am not perfect, it was just the holidays, I ate some foods I probably shouldn’t have, I ate more cooked foods than normal and can feel it and I want to feel better – I want my 2015 to be the best year yet by looking and feeling great – the best I have looked and felt in a long time.  I am entering my 50th year – (ok I just admitted that to everyone and I realized I have lived half my life already) – and I am ready to take my health, body, life and living to another level and since I have already experienced the results from this I know it can get better.

Here is a preview after my last Transformation!!

Are YOU ready?? Ready to feel better, to feel great, to look great and to rock 2015??

Definition of insanity is to keep doing what you are doing yet expecting different results!!

The New Year

The New Year

Vjictoria-2

I didn’t get this right out on New Years Day as I have been taking the time to really reflect and set my intentions for a new year.  What are the possibilities, what do I really want to create, how do I want to feel, how do I want to spend my time, how do I want to eat, what recipes do I want to create, what food habits I could still improve on, what foods could I let go of (like my morning Americano……..really!!) how could I or better yet when could  I include some more yoga or exercise, where could I or where would I like to put my energy, who do I want to hang out with, where do I want to travel and with who and of course how would I like my business to grow and what kind of income would I like to create / have this year.

Remember anything is possible – one just needs to get clear on what it is, let go of attachment YET see it, feel it, believe it, live it as if it is already happening AND take action moving in that direction.  Let go of figuring it out or the how’s and the doubts.

Getting clear, setting intentions is way different than New Year’s Resolutions – most people make the same top 10 every year but very few actually commit to them especially after January – change can be hard for some.  Think back over the years and see if you have been making the same resolutions – you know, pay off the debt, earn more money, spend less, down size, lose weight, get into better shape – those seem to be the most common.

Write out a page or two , once you get really clear on your intentions of how living your life would be – describe it clearly, then read it, see it as you read it, feel it as you read it and start to take on that energy – read it each morning or evening or both or as often as possible if you choose or better yet just imagine it, feel it and take action – that will create the reality – just don’t ever give up or stop – your life, your living, your dreams are worth it!!

It may show up in a slightly different form than what you thought – but the energy of it will be there and you will know it!!

My wish for you is that 2015 will be YOUR Best Year Yet – I know that it is going to be mine for sure!!

Namaste

Jodi
