We all want it. Good, clean energy and vitality. That certain kind of life-force that drives us to get it all done in a day. Many think it’s made right in their local Starbucks. Sadly, this all too common caffeine addiction will leave your poor little adrenal glands damaged & depleted in the long-haul and you even more exhausted than you started. Isn’t about time to switch to a long-term, healthy solution? Something nourishing that provides all the zip and zest for life that you’ll need to be productive and energized?
Welcome, to my delicious, power-packed world of nutrition people! Not only am I an ultra- passionate Plant-based Nutritionist, but it is my absolute mission to get you geared up and ready to live and eat so that you can become green, lean and vibrant in no time. A plant-based, whole foods diet will certainly bring back much of the vital energy, enzymes and nourishment your body craves and needs to live a more productive, passionate and healthy life.
So yes, what you choose to eat is HUGE, but still just a part of the picture. It’s also largely about being well-hydrated, rested, stress-free and fit. Now please don’t feel over-whelmed, we’re not striving for perfection by any means. Just a consistent progression towards total wellness, from the inside out. A life free of disease and full of enthusiasm to do what ever it is you’re striving for. I strongly believe that we’re all put on earth for a very specific reason and to contribute something meaningful that gives us that glorious feeling of purpose. What I want to do here, is help you access your own personal power, ambition and purpose by fueling your brain and muscle cells with the whole food you were designed to eat so that your ready and excited to take on day.
So I’ll try to keep it simple, so that you can begin to gradually start creating a healthier version of YOU every single day right now. Everyone progresses at a different pace. Take a deep breath, and start by reviewing my 3 basic steps to start.
- Sleep: You probably know all too well how vital these precious hours of bodily repair & rejuvenation are, so I won’t go into the numerous benefits that quality, sufficient REM sleep provides here. Let’s just quickly assess, figure out what we can do moving forward to improve upon our own sleep quality/quantity and move along. Often times our body is in much more need for sleep than we realize. Work on turning off the mind-noise and imagining the positive difference you’ll make in the world tomorrow. Writing a daily to-do list can be a very effective visual reminder and has helped me tremendously.
- Hydration: This one is very straight-forward & easy to do. I would recommend working towards drinking 1 Liter of purified water upon waking every day. The best way to guarantee this happens is to bring a bring a big bottle with you and put it right at your bedside so that it’s ready to go. Just drink, give thanks, drink & repeat! Every cell in your beautiful body is most dehydrated & in need of H2O first thing in the morning. Your skin, digestion & metabolism will all thank you….cheers!
- Nourishment: When nicely hydrated, you’ll soon be ready for some good, clean cellular FUEL! I would recommend picking your favorite fresh seasonal fruit to start with. No need to concern yourself with how much, just shoot for something juicy-good (preferably organic) & just eat until satisfied. I absolutely love & cherish fruit & veggies, the most delicious, nutrient-rich, energizing, disease-preventing food available on the planet, period.
By transitioning to a high-grade, oxygen-filled, enzyme-packed fuel that the human body was designed to digest, your blood will receive an invigorating injection of pure vitality, all day long! Now, this surge could be immediate for some & felt over time for others – it really depends on what state of health your body is in now. Some may choose to ease into a whole food plant-based diet, while others may choose to jump right in full force. Regardless of where you are, I hope to, over-time, empower you with enough practical knowledge & inspiration so that there’s no convincing necessary – you’ll just feel it!
