Super Vegetable Soup

September 6, 2017
Sharing my super soup recipe today because I was able to borrow some dehydrating time with a friend who invited me over to teach her how to use her new dehydrator!
.
Needless to say, we dehydrated everything but the kitchen sink and it was MUCH fun! 
.
Although I don't advocate eating lots of dehydrated foods (you really need to eat whole foods to reap maximum health-supportive benefits) I do support dehydrating real foods to take with you when on the go
.

.
If you've been following me for a while, you know I choose not to eat solid food during flights - instead, I drink copious amounts of water & herbal teas to keep my gut garden hydrated and happy.
.
When I land, I fuel my body with food that digests easily, like this yumtastic dehydrated veggie soup pictured.
.
This bundle of goodness is my fav 'go to' when I travel. I change it up each time by adding different veggies, organically-grown rice or quinoa + lots of sensational gut-supportive spices.
.
Today, I dehydrated:
.
✨1 cup each of locally grown & chopped cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, brown onions & red peppers. I mixed them together, then scooped 1.5 cups of this mix.
.
I then added:
.
✨25g of organically-grown basmati rice
.
✨1 tsp each: ground turmeric, cumin, fennel, caraway & mint
.
✨1/2 tsp black pepper
.
✨Pinch of sea salt
.
I pack this in the coolest BPA-free travel pouch (more info to come next post) that I can easily add boiling water to if there are no bowls around.
.
Once water is added, the veggies expand, the rice cooks & the spices work their flavourful, digestive magic - always such a treat to eat 
.
My main msg to you today? Try something a little 'left of centre' every now & then!
.
Get creative & don't let traveling create anxiety over what to pack & eat, because as you can see, it's actually quite easy!
.
As always, I hope this excites & helps you to think outside the box - remember, health-supportive eating should always be fun!

How to Protect Yo’self From EMF

July 28, 2017
A few years ago I began delving deeper into different types of detrimental toxicities that exist within our environment because I'm a health nerd who wants to know anything & everything about how to guard & support the body naturally.
.
Aside from natural food & skincare, what do I know? 
.
That EMFs encompass areas of energy surrounding all electronic devices. Their electromagnetic fields affect you (and me) because our bodies have their own electric & biochemical responses - our nervous system, digestion brain function, heart function, etc.
.
In the last 3 years, I've spoken to many experts who tell me EMFs can & do interact with the body in lots of not-so-great ways causing: headaches, anxiety, nausea, depression, fatigue, loss of libido as well as more serious health issues involving degeneration of cells leading to very serious dis-ease in the body 
.
So what can you do about it?
.
Protect yo'self of course!
.
⚡️Eat a real food diet - LOTS of greens containing 'chlorophyll' which cleanses, detoxifies, purifies & supports the body. Take a look at my insta feed and You Tube tube channel for LOTS of great recipes.
.
⚡️Drink filtered water, health supportive tonics & elixirs as well as my fav: detoxifying teas! My current love, pictured above, is Pau d'Arco. My friend Mason from @superfeast tells me this herb has been used for years to relieve pain & treat conditions including yeast overgrowth, fungal infections & skin rashes. Aside from its detoxing power, Pau d'Arco tea can also support the body to heal chronic digestive disturbances.
.
⚡️Seek out products that block harmful laptop and phone radiation like my @defendershield mat pictured above. This mat also greatly reduces heat emitted from laptops, tablets & other electronic devices. Whenever I'm working, I make sure my Defender Pad is placed between my laptop and my body.
.
⚡️Invest in a crystal because they're not just beautiful specimens, they're health supportive too! Whether you're a little woo woo like me or not, there's no disputing the fact crystals like shungite can help support the body. Shungite is the only natural material containing 'fullerenes' which are SUPER high in antioxidants
