Nutritional Tips: 5 Quick and Easy Nutrition Game Changers

  1. Instead of eating no carbs, eat good carbs. Lot’s of veggies and wonderful grains.
  2. Enjoy protein rich foods regularly. Remember, your body needs protein to build and maintain muscle. Some great protein rich foods are lean meat, eggs, broccoli, spinach, asparagus.
  3. Limit your sugar intake. Remember your body has to work extra hard to maintain balance when there is a big sugar overload. By limiting your sugar intake you can more easily manage weight, improve dental health, decrease risk of heart disease and diabetes.
  4. Enjoy veggies at every meal. By giving your body nutrient rich foods at every meal, you’ll have fewer crashes and you’ll feel better. Yes! You can have salad for breakfast, enjoy salad with a healthy veggie quiche or over easy eggs and toast.

Healing Recent Trauma

Mindfulness Tips

Trauma happens to all of us throughout our lives. The past two years, we have experienced collective trauma with COVID and the passing of so many both near and far.

Culturally, we don’t have the space, time and resources to allow ourselves to heal. Often times, we hold it in, race off to work, or drown it out with TV, drinking or avoidance. I’m here to tell you that you have the power to heal trauma so that it doesn’t continue to weigh on you.

Time is the first most important element. Please be gentle and give yourself time. From there, find resources that work for you. If you need help, find the right healer or counselor to work with. Find other outlets to move through the difficulty. Yoga, exercise, movement and meditation are great “do it yourself” healers that you can build into your life.

Once you have your toolbox of resources and practices. Consider your goals. One goal could be to learn from the trauma. Because with each and every situation, we have an opportunity to grow our wisdom. The wisdom we carry is the understanding of life, humanity and ourselves that is earned through life’s experiences. Only you get to carry the wisdom of your experiences and as a result you have a unique light to bring to this world. When we combine our wisdom, we can create a better tomorrow. But first we have to have the willingness to access it. The best way to do it is to heal through your trauma and learn from the experiences. Then take what you learned and light up the world. This sounds easy, but like all things in life. Learning takes time, energy, attention and a willingness to be humble.

Once you finish this month’s meditation, journal about the wisdom that you carry. You may be surprised at how incredibly important your experiences are and how beautiful your light shines because of the wisdom you carry.

With courage, love, strength and passion – we commend you.

Now, take a deep breath and say to yourself “I am stronger and wiser with all that has happened”.

There is nothing better than cooling off with an ice-cold Lemonade after a hot day. But we’ve taken it one step further with this deliciously hydrating lemonade mocktail/cocktail with fresh mint.

Grab some Lemonade Ultima Replenisher (packed with electrolytes and no sugar), sparkling water and mint sprigs and mix up this thirst-quenching, refreshing drink.

Mint can be easily found in your neighborhood grocery store (and it’s super easy to grow in a window box or back yard, too.) It is filled with nutrients that can help soothe indigestion and has calming properties that will help you wind down after a long day. 

2 scoops lemonade Ultima Replenisher

4oz water

4 shots of tequila ( for a cocktail, or replace with sparkling water for a mocktail)

28 oz Sparkling water

Fresh mint and lemon slices for garnish

Serves 4 – 8 oz mocktail/cocktails

INSTRUCTIONS

In a pitcher add 4oz of water and the Ultima Lemonade powder and mix well. Add 28 oz sparkling water and mix again. Add ice, 2 mint leaves and 1 shot of tequila per glass to 4 glasses. Top with the Ultima mixture and garnish with lemon slices, fresh mint. Enjoy!

New Beginnings Meditation with Shaman Rose

Mindfulness Tips

Finding Stillness

Stillness is something that the modern world has become more and more uncomfortable with. In a world of instant access to everything, instant messaging and instant response expectation – being still is becoming more and more difficult.

Like everything, we have to build our own boundaries and our own practice. To do this in an easier way, Shaman Rose is here to guide you. Enjoy this meditation each week and build up your ability to enjoy the stillness.

Stillness lies in perception and attention.

A quiet mind creates inner stillness.

Allow for true experience of outer movement.

The flow of the water, the song of the bird, the beat of the breath.

The music and dance of all things around take flight into a masterpiece that you may enjoy.

Now take a deep breath and feel your life force and feel how beautiful it is to be alive.

Nutritional Tips: In the Heat of Summer

Summertime Nutrition Made Easy!

We all may be thinking about that hot summer bod and being bathing suit ready, but more importantly we have to understand that Summer is a unique time of year where are bodies have very specific needs. The heat of summer along with our activities call for extra hydration, extra light food and extra recovery. Here are some of our go-to nutrition and health tips and tricks:

  • WATER | Drink more than you think is enough. Utilize an extra large water bottle. Add flavor such as cucumbers, strawberry and fresh mint, lemon or lime. Be sure to ice it up to help cool you down.
  • FRUIT | Fruit has water in it! Enjoy cold, fresh fruit over sugary snack alternatives. The antioxidants will help to keep you healthy and keep your skin glowing after all of that sun!
  • SALADS | Enjoy fresh salads that incorporate a diverse array of ingredients. Include greens, nuts, veggies, berries and cheese if you like! The nutrients will help to keep your body happy without weighing you down.
  • DRINK YOUR MEALS | Smoothies are an incredible way to stay hydrated, cool off and get a lot of nutrition in one serving. Try different smoothies so that you don’t get bored. This week, make tropical smoothies, green smoothies next week, and berry smoothies the week after.

Meditation Brings Wisdom

When we meditate through yoga, our bodies get to connect with our minds and spirits.

This sacred connection allows us to be more in tune with our truth and our path. We can experience life in many ways, that is our freedom. With yoga, we an experience life from a place of connectedness, inner peace and alignment. A life experienced in this way, is a life with less friction and stress. It is a practice and we will ebb and flow through it. It will take commitment to achieve this. The commitment does not have to look one way at all times. Your practice will change as your life changes and as your body changes. There will be times where relaxation yoga is the key part of your practice and other times where vinyasa is your go to. The more you learn and experience, the more you will see that yoga is here to help you through this beautiful journey of life.

Nutritional Tips:

An introduction to Intuitive Eating by our friends Brooke Miller & Alyssa Miller, both Registered Dietitians. They can be found on Instagram @nutrition.for.mamas & @the.mama.well.

Intuitive Eating is the establishment of a relationship with eating and food that honors both physical and mental health.

Intuitive Eating consists of 10 principles of self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought and was created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. 

To Get You Started, Here are 3 Tips on Becoming an Intuitive Eater: 

1. Eat regularly throughout the day and don’t skip meals. If you skip meals and show up to a meal overly hungry, you will likely eat past fullness.

2. Add in some type of movement daily that you enjoy to boost your  energy and mood; walking counts!

3. Ditch the scale & tune in to other body cues instead like: hunger, fullness, & how food makes you feel. The book “Intuitive Eating” is a great resource to start!

Relieving Stress

*How to become your own healer*

Work with the Elements – Our environment is made to help us live, flourish and heal. The sun gives us energy, the lakes and streams give us hydration, the plants give us Oxygen. We are supported by our Earth in every way, everyday it is how we survive and thrive on our Earth.

Here are a few easy to do things that you can do to become your own healer.

  • When you have pain or negative thoughts: Ask the sun to take heal your pain and to transform your thoughts into healing energy. Ask out loud while laying in the grass. Practice, practice practice.
  • Feeling heavy? Go for a swim, but let yourself lay in the water and ask out loud, “Water, take my heaviness, transform it into light, help me to feel lighter”, Practice, Practice Practice.
