Health and wellness.. It's the new you!

You are what you eat... and you eat what you are!

Do you know what I'm saying?

When I ask my clients what the phrase  
You are what you eat 
means, they say,
"Yes, the quality of food you eat directly translates into the quality of your body."
We know this, 
this has been drilled into our brains for a long time,
but the concept of 
You eat what you are 
is a new way of looking at the whole picture.

Here is what I mean by this statement:

When we don't feel good about ourselves,
when we feel unsure of what our goals are,
when we feel sluggish, puffed up, depressed and dulled
by the toxic foods that are in the typical Standard American Diet,we tend to crave and eat
the crappy food that makes us feel like...well, you know what.
We crave the quick jolt or energy that comes from highly refined and processed "foods", 
but then eating this type of diet creates a vicious cycle 
that causes a jolt, but then a big-time crash!

So, being conscious of this cycle,
guess what?
You can take back your power 
and choose what you want 
the phrases mentioned above
mean about you.
Start now to create the new you, only settle for the best!

We had an amazing turnout for Saturday's class
The 21 Day Detox
We held it at my friend and partner in health and wellness 
Kristie Rosser's
beautiful kitchen. 
We limited the class to 30 people and easily filled up, 
so we are opening up a
new class 
Saturday, March 12, 
You can register here on this blog through paypal.

Special thanks to 
who is my Nurse Practioner,
and Leanna
who is my friend, client, and fellow Iron-Girl.

chop, blend, serve and teach 
during Saturday's class!!!

I can't thank them enough!

It was a bit overwhelming to think about 
teaching, and preppinng and cooking delicious raw food for 30 people.
I couldn't have done it without them. 
I also really appreciate the expertise they both shared during the class.

Kristie had many of her patients in the class. 
It was inspiring to hear their stories of how Kristie has helped her patients
change the quality of their lives. 
She goes way above and beyond what your typical medical professional provides. 
She personally invests in your health and wellness.
Read her blog, and you will see what is so unique and special about her.

Leanna inspired many of us with her 
own personal story 
of how she has literally changed
her body and life 
by changing the way she eats!
You can read about how she has overcome Adrenal Fatigue by eating whole foods to balance her body.

I LOVE these girls!

Here are the recipes that I promised the class I'd share that help to make the 
21 Day Detox 
easy and affordable:
Make your own, and save your $$$!

Basic Nut Milk:

1 C nuts, soaked for 3 hours in purified water
1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
1 to 2 tsp agave syrup or brown rice syrup
3 C purified water

1. Drain the nuts, discarding water
2. Place in blender with vanilla powder or extract, sweetener, and 3 C purified water.
3. Blend for about 3 minutes.
4. Strain through a fine strainer or cheesecloth.
5. Store in refrigerator; lasts for 2 days.

Basic Coconut Milk:

1 C of dried, unsweetened coconut
4 C of warm purified water

1. Soak coconut in the water for 15 minutes.
2. Strain through a fine strainer.

Almond Butter: 

2 C Almonds (soaked)
1 TBS  Raw Honey or agave (optional)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (optional)
1 TBS walnut oil

1.Place almonds and oil in food processor or high speed blender.
2.Process for 8-12 minutes.
3. You will need to scrape down the sides in the beginning.
4. If you choose to use the honey or agave and salt, stir in by hand after the butter is made as it will seize the mixture if you try to add it before.

Thanks for all of the love and support!
