Thanks to Whole Foods, not only do you have great stores* around the country to stock up on lots of local, sustainable selections but also they’re making it so easy to learn to cook it all up in the best way possible! Check out this link to learn some options for clean, nutrient-preserving food prep.

*I actually do NOT live near a Whole Foods 😦 so I count on stores like Trader Joe’s, Sprouts Farmers Markets, Organic Roots and even Costco to find sustainable, organic and greenhouse-grown fruits, veggies and grains to fill my plate.

Thank you for helping us all to keep kickin butt and performing better, Whole Foods!

Super Salad!

 

 

SuperSalad

Oh YES, that’s what I’m talkin’ about – super duper dinner goodness and here’s what it’s boasting: quinoa, nutritional yeast, cranberries, blueberries, peaches, chia seeds, white mushrooms, garlic, squash, dijon mustard, kale, avocado, sweet potato, black pepper and red hot chili peppers.

I think I’m in love…so good…

Superbrain Yoga

“If you need to find some way to relax and improve your concentration but don’t have time for a full yoga class, you might want to consider Superbrain Yoga, a trademark name for a technique said to revitalize the brain.” – excerpt from ehow.com contributor Alan Donohue

I’m going to start doing this tomorrow morning…I’ll let you know it goes in two weeks!

Moderation

I love the theme of the holidays: “Eat, Drink, Be Merry!” Please, do all three, IN MODERATION! Enjoy some delicious foods, make better choices when presented with a buffet spread, and eat more of the healthier choices. Bring a delicious, nutritious appetizer and main dish that you know is a great option for you and other guests at parties. If you choose to drink alcohol, make sure to drink a glass of water before and after any moderate pour of that adult bevy. And if you stray from your normal workout schedule, make a promise to yourself to get in a nice brisk walk, if nothing else, with a few of the relatives each day. Be safe, laugh often, and spread the goodwill today and always 🙂
