Champagne for Breakfast.

I made it! I did my 30 Days of No gluten, sugar or alcohol! Today, I can have champagne for breakfast.

Mindfulness is key.

This was my breakfast today. Grain Free Sugar Free Blender Bread with ghee. (recipe from Danielle Walker’s Celebration Book) Full Fat plain yogurt and apple sauteed in ghee. Along with Bulletproof coffee and the best supplements on the planet.

Martini Powered PJ and Julia!

Today was a proud day for me.

My Dad took my advise and  embraced the Fit and Fabulous Nutrition Program! My niece Julia has been on the program for over a month.  She talks about how her stomach has never felt better now that she is completely off gluten. She also loves how the program has actually helped her save money.  It makes me happy that they are doing so well and I appreciate their trust in me.

Here is their stories! A fun video to film today!

I Love Katie Horner’s (another fabulous niece) art work in the background!

Thanks Mom for being our photographer!

Fit and Fabulous Jane at 73!

Jane Sullivan 73 joined a gym and started working out 8 years ago. I met her  riding the stationery bike. “Come on Jane, join me outside , you can do so much better.” She did!

Sorry about the Wind Noise!

 I love her positive attitude and I am amazed at her fitness level.  She talks about how the outdoor fitness is spiritual for her. It is very empowering for her and all of us! Keep Going Jane!

Low impact Burpee!

I have a new client and every time I say burpee she leaves for a walk around the building. This is fine with me. Elaine is easing into the workouts! By the way, she is 79! Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional!

I have a low impact burpee that she can do. It is an alternative to the high impact burpee that we all Love! It is also great to use as a warm up to your workout.

Exercise is very important to your health.

Nutrition is even more critical. 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.  Being mindful of a balanced diet is key. Eat organic when possible, watch your portions, enjoy your meals, focus on proteins, healthy fats and vegetables.

Do you need a reset or perhaps a jump start?

I have put together a 7 day program of No grains, sugar and alcohol with my friend Holistic Chef Ivone of Healthy Sage.

You will be amazed at how much better you can feel in a short period of time. Are you ready to look and feel your best?

I am not a big Valentine’s person. I felt it would be nice to have a treat for dessert tonight. I made Guilt Free Chocolate pudding recipe from Eat For Your Gut by Dr. Nicole Rivera. I added chopped nuts and silvers of 85% Cacao.

I also made my Energy Bites. Quick and easy snack. Here is the basic recipe.

I had a break through!

Yesterday on Day 22 of no gluten, sugar or alcohol I had a break through. I have been fighting the program just about the whole time. I don’t especially like rules even my own rules.

I have been agitated and stuffing myself. I am stuffing myself with good things, blueberries, red peppers, carrots… Whenever I go to cook I start eating. I decided yesterday to stop it. I feel so much calmer since then. I love to chew gum as well. It is the same kind of habit. Yesterday, I slowed down, sat down and ate my meal or snack. I enjoyed my meals so much more. Mindfulness.

I also spent 15 minutes sitting on my cushion in my bedroom. I say I am going to meditate on a daily basis but I don’t. It is so very helpful.

These past 22 days have not been super easy. You know what? I do feel so much better. Why do I fight it???My sleep, my  body , my energy is fabulous! I want to tell everyone. Do you suffer from aches and pains, insomnia, lack of energy? Get off the grains, sugar and alcohol and see how you feel. I am telling you it is so worth it!

Have you checked in with your SHMEC?

SHMEC…SLEEP HUNGER MOOD ENERGY CRAVINGS

Day 20 of no gluten, sugar or alcohol. My SHMEC is great!!!

You are in balance when your SHMEC is in balance. I have been off gluten, sugar and alcohol for 20 days. I feel so much better. I am sleeping, the hot flashes have lessen and have lost the stomach bloat.

Still a slight agitation in the evening when I like a glass of wine at dinner. Rehab is 28 days so it is okay. It is getting better. I have found some good substitutions…. Golden milk, kombucha, a nice cup of tea.

How is your SHMEC?

Love The Ghee!

I started making ghee a few months ago when I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I LOVE IT! I blend it in my morning coffee with coconut oil. I sauteed apple and nuts in ghee to add to my breakfast. I sauteed tofu, cashews and rosemary in it for an afternoon snack. It makes everything delicious!

Adding more fat to your diet, helps your hormones stay in balance.

  • Ghee has a high smoke point. It is excellent to cook with.
  • Ghee is rich in Vitamin A, D and E.
  • Ghee can be used by people with dairy sensitivity. The lactose and casein is removed during the straining process.
  • Ghee made from happy grass fed cows contain CLA, Conjugated linoleic acid. CLA may actually reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and tumors. It has also been helpful in weight loss, reducing inflammation and body fat.
  • Ghee contains Butyrate which may improve colon health and digestion.

The best part, it is DELICIOUS and you can keep it on your counter in a pretty Ball jar!

Embrace The Ghee

Embrace The Ghee

It is easy to make ghee. Take a pound of organic unsalted butter, (grass fed butter is even better) and put it in a pot on a low temperature. I let it cook for about 15 minutes and strain it through cheese cloth to remove all of the toxins from the butter. My friend Dr. Deb Kern has a great video on making ghee. She loves to chant and send out goodness while the ghee is simmering. It is a spiritual practice for her.
