Tandi Canterbury Rolen

 

Last week I got to sit with Tandi for al little bit and have an conversation – this beautiful being is so busy as she is out to help people wake up to real health!! As we speak, she is in the process of opening her new and bigger health bar in the city of Wenatchee in Washington as she is expanding.  The Hunter’s Wife (don’t you just love that name!) is a  little outside health bar in East Wenatchee, which serves amazing healthy juices, smoothies and food and is  attached to a Yoga studio. (but is closing as bigger space was needed – yay!! people are waking up and wanting real food!!)

The Hunter’s Wife

Q  –  What does health mean to you?

Health to me is everything. It’s my platform for quality living. I’m worthy to have a fantastic, beautiful life. Health of the mind, body, and spirituality is key.

Q  –  When or what got you started down this path?

I was raised on frozen pizza’s, French toast, and ice cream. I ate this way most of my life. During that time I never was satisfied. I hated my body, I hated my skin, I was the biggest bully to myself. I so badly wanted to glow. I just didn’t know how.
The turning point for me was witnessing my grandmother pass from cancer. She was my best friend. I was depressed, and stuck in toxic habits. It was the darkest time in my life. I knew that it was my own responsibility to take care of myself so that I wouldn’t let my grandma down.
I started juicing. I juiced everyday. It didn’t matter if I was 10 minutes late to work, I stuck to it and it wasn’t long before I witnessed the shift in my body and mind. I started to fall in love with real food. It proved it loved me back. Years of acne scares disappeared, I slept fantastic, I took up yoga, running, biking, everything in my world was improving. There was no way I was going back to that darkness again.
3 years later I married my high school sweetheart in the heart chakra of the world, Maui. It was my happy place. We drank out of coconuts, swam in warm ocean water, and snacked on beautiful acai bowls. It was there that I knew I had to bring this happy place to my home town. And help others heal and change their lives. I’ve elimated all things and don’t serve me, and I created a job for myself to be around like minded people. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done.www.jodiburke.com

Q  –  What are some of your favourite health foods?

It depends on the day. I LOVE my banana’s. And I never go a day without raw dark leafy greens on my plate. Plant foods make me feel alive.

Q  –  If you could share some advice for people getting started on the health path what would it be?

IT TAKES TIME. Consistency is key to achieving life long healthy habits. You have to ask yourself, what’s important to you? If being comfortable in your own skin is a priority you will make it happen. Don’t over complicate things. There’s a lot of “health plans” out there that confuse us. Some plans work but 9 times out of 10 I witness people going backward. I just heard on the radio today that someone is trying to sell a pro biotic that is “found in skinny people” for weight loss and wellness. Uh? No. Look at nature. Your cells are always working FOR you. Your a living thing. It’s common sense to me, to eat living foods. And then everything else will fall into place. But be patient. Trust your body and nature to heal you on a cellular level. Good things take time.

Being vegan, I can eat as much fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats that I desire. I don’t have to worry about counting calories, portions, my weight. It’s effortless. I love this abundant lifestyle. And it makes me sad to see so many people struggle with getting on tack with their health. No more shots in the belly, or crazy vitamin drinks, working out extensively, or calorie apps. My juice bar – The Hunters Wife Health Bar is my happy place, to share for everyone to feel great and be great in the simplest form. Can I also mention that this lifestyle is cheaper? More convenient? And lifelong health insurance? I hope someday we can all rise above the pollution of negative self talk, bogus advertising, food restrictions, caffeine prone anxiety, and the truth about cancer. We’re all worth it.

I got to have a great conversation with Jessie and Daniel before I got some time with Tandi and they are pretty cool too – what I am finding is most people that are into real food eating, healthy eating, living, being and consciousness  usually are – they walk their talk and are so interested in waking people up!!

They are tastier and easier than you think to eat!!

since being on the road there are a few things I am so grateful for!!

One is the preparing ahead of time and bringing some healthy foods / snacks with us as there was nothing and I mean NOTHING at any gas stations or stops to eat – yes there was a ton of junk or franken foods but NO REAL FOODS – how sad.

We even stopped by a grocery store in that had NO fresh food – their produce section was being fixed or redone – the whole thing – so nothing in that store was fresh or alive!!!

the other thing that has made travelling easy is our Purium products – yes I am definitely going to promote them here as not only are they alive, vegan ,organic and non-gmo when none of those things we could find, but also handy, dried (yes still live as they were dried at very low temperatures) but also convenient.

So instead of settling for the crap, fake processed foods on the shelves – we have been able to stick with Whole foods and Superfoods that are live and fresh – Purium and not as we planned ahead,more prepared, didn’t give into temptation, laziness, excuses plus we know how crappy, gassy and bloated we would feel eating anything but!!

its truly incredible when you really start feeding the body instead of just eating how good you can feel – most of us don’t know how good we can feel and its pretty amazing and keeps getting better!!!!

A quick and easy and oh my so tasty salad we threw together one night after attending the locals farmers market.

2015-02-18_0003

– fresh mustard greens

– fresh mixed sprouts

– toasted fresh pecans in coconut oil (usually I use Tamari for roasting / toasting nuts) this was

the first time I used Coconut oil and it tasted amazing!!

– chopped dried black olives

– Coconut cheese – yes coconut – it was yummy

– Spirulina (sprinkled on – yes Purium)

– very high quality cold pressed olive oil and balsamic vinegar lightly poured over the salad

We also created a side dish of Guacamole with herbs, lemon juice, himalayan salt, garlic and spirulina.

Easy, quick, tasty and nutrient dense and oh yeah real whole foods – eating healthy made easy!!

Here I am eating at Chocola Tree in Sedona Arizona – an amazing Raw / Vegan highly conscious, organic restaurant – all dressed in Green eating the Green Goddess salad (no I didn’t preplan it lol). Salad of romaine lettuce, kale, pulse, seaweed, cucumbers, avocados, sprouts and a little nut hummus – greens, tasty and nutrient dense!!

As Hippocrates once said – ‘Let food be they medicine and medicine be thy food’.

Here’s to your health!!

Want to Look AND Feel great Naked??

Want to Look AND Feel Great Naked??

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!!

Pesto Sauce

Raw Pesto Sauce

I was at the market the other day and there was an abundance of Basil and fresh Garlic – perfect for making pesto.

2 bunches basil leaves (no stems)

2 – 3 garlic cloves

squeeze of 1/2 lemon

3/4 cup cold pressed olive oil

nuts are optional, I usually use them, but you don’t have to. Traditional pesto called for pine nuts, but you can also mix them up. I have used pumpkin seeds, macadamia nuts and walnuts, you don’t have to soak them, it is up to you, I usually don’t.

Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend up until mixed well.  You can make it very smooth or a little more course.  You can add more olive oil for less concentrate.  I usually make it somewhat concentrate then depending on the dish I can add more oil if need be.

This is great for pastas, (regular and raw), crackers, dressing etc

Enjoy!!

Why Orgnic??

A word on Organic

You are what you eat and your skin is the largest organ of the body, everything you put on it gets absorbed into the bloodstream, so for me, if I am going to eat healthy, raw and organic as often as possible, then I want to put healthy products on my skin as well.

We already get exposed to enough toxic chemicals and if we have a chance to reduce that, why not??

Foods and products that are organic are not gentically modified (GMO), don’t have pesiticides, herbicides and other chemicals.  These chemcials can be detrimental to your health and are usually cancer causing.

Organic foods and products reduces overall toxins in your body further increasing your health and vitality. They are more nutritious, safer, have more vitamins and minerals and are better tasting.

I find everytime I go to the store and try and find a safe, healthy or organic product, reading the labels is quite amusing to say the least!!  I don’t know what the guidelines are but to put on the labels nautral or organic and to find out they still have toxic chemcials in them can be  frustrating!!

These are some foods that have high amounts of pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics etc

– beef, chicken & pork

– dairy

– strawberries, raspberries and cherries

– apples and pears

– tomatoes

– spinach and salad greens

– peaches and nectarines

– coffee

– potatoes

– grapes (imported from Chile)

– celery

– peppers red and green

Organic may be more expensive, but for me, I feel it’s worth it.  A good way of getting fresh, organic and usually well priced produce is through your local organic farmer or at farmer’s markets, buy from organic co-ops, buy in bulk or decide on what you can or will buy that is organic, it’s not always alot more money especially if it’s in season.

I have found that I can actually taste the difference, but I know I am feeding my body better.

Here’s to Your Health!!
