Here’s a great (and FREE!) way to transition to Spring. Over the years I’ve learned so much from the folks over at Food Matters. If you haven’t seen their film, check it out! They are truly passionate about food, wellness and helping people live a life full of seriously vibrant health. This is a five-part program where you’ll learn how to safely release toxins from your body, boost your immune system, reset your metabolism and heal your body from the inside out. Amazing. You’ll also learn about how much nutritional mojo can be packed into a green smoothie (see above!) — and how to make them quick and easy!

This is truly exciting. Wanderfuel is a new company that wants to revolutionize how we eat while traveling. I think it’s pretty safe to say that more often than not, your typical in-flight meal will leave you wanting … and wistful. Wanderfuel wants to change all that. Well-curated (and beautifully designed) boxes are filled with snacks that are delicious, help you feel energized, and are easy on your digestion. Sample goodies you might find in a box are coconut chips, “Raw Gorilla” granola snack packs, chia treats, and mushroom coffee. (Yes, you read that correctly.) So now you have a choice: do you want to land feeling bloated and cranky, or feeling refreshed both inside and out? Did I forget to mention Wanderfuel also has a Refresh & Recharge: Spa Kit as well? What snacks do you usually bring when you travel?
Along with legions of other fans, I look so forward to my morning tea ritual. It’s calming, delicious, and I’m quite certain it makes me a nicer person for my family and the world at large. When I travel, I’m all for embracing newness, being out of my comfort zone, and all of those great unscripted and unexpected moments that can be pure gold. That is except for my morning tea ritual. Teapigs is my go-to for Matcha-on-the-go. Started by two Brits a decade ago, teapigs sells a lovely selection of teas from all over the world. The owners are focused on finding the purest leaves, and on a mission to get people to drink REAL tea again. Also, no pretentious attitudes allowed. They want one and all to discover and revel in the pleasures of drinking REAL tea. But, back to the Matcha. The tea comes in convenient little packets that are perfect for travel. And, although I love my bamboo whisk, they even have a great metal whisk that comes in it’s own case — perfect for travel.
A book with a title like that, written by one of my favorite women’s health mavericks? I’m in! And what a ride! As always, Dr. Christiane Northrup, above all else, speaks from her heart about the power we women have to create the vibrant health that we deserve. Instead of dreading the journey, Dr. Northrup commands us to toss aside the self-defeating messages we receive about aging, menopause, and our value as women as we grow older. Her point is very clear: more than any vitamin or pill, it is our thoughts and our beliefs that dictate our health and vitality. We are all growing older but you don’t have to succumb to negative belief systems that pave the way for memory loss, chronic diseases, and depression.
We have the power of choice. The foods we eat, the people we bring into our circle, the ways we want to move our bodies, and how we express our sexuality. All of these facets play an important role and have a huge impact on our health. Dr. Northrup is a big believer in tapping into our Divine/Creative Source. She shares a great mantra to help us with our heart health:
“Divine Love now manifests in my heart. And now fuels my life.”
I’m doing it everyday — when I wake up and before I go to sleep. It feels good to bookend my day like this!
Mixing her passion for addressing the emotional, mental, and spiritual root causes of so many our physical ailments with the latest research on health and aging, Dr. Northrup creates a rich roadmap. Yes, we are all getting older, but we have the power within all of us to decide how to make this journey. I say let’s go for radiant health and self-empowerment!
