    The Plant Paradox

    Lots of books come across my desk but when I heard about The The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight GainPlant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain I knew I had to read it. I ordered a hard copy and a Kindle version. I read 5 hours the first day. Then I knew I had to interview the author Dr. Steven Gundry. I ended up spending an hour on the phone with him.

    Dr. Gundry’s research is stunning and fascinating. He found that plants defend themselves against things like insects with certain lectins. One of the main lectins of course is gluten but there are many others and in this book I learned that some of the foods I thought were healthy, were in fact not good for me. If you suffer with autoimmune issues I strongly suggests you read this book ASAP!

    Some of the foods you might rethink are: bread, beans, nightshades (potatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes). Some other surprises include cashews and squash!

    Transform Your Sleep

    For as long as I can remember I always worried excessively at night right before I went to sleep. This can’t be a good practice. I know a lot of others struggle with this as well. A few months ago, I tried something new at bedtime and my sleep ever since has been amazing.

    Now when my head hits the pillow I only allow myself to think about things that are good, happy and positive in my life. Essentially, I am only thinking about things I am grateful for before I go to sleep. It will not be easy at first but you can do it. Try it I promise it will transform your life!

    Under the Pillow

    Did you know?

    Sometimes I sleep with a cinnamon stick under my pillow not only for the scent, but it is believed that the cinnamon stick will catch any lingering negative energy that may come through in a dream!

    Keep Hydrated

    Make a conscious effort to drink water all day.

    Most of us run around slightly to severely dehydrated. Dehydration is not only caused by the lack of water we intake, it is also the dried and processed foods we eat that soak up any potential fluids in our body. Many respond to the dehydration facts with, “I drink a lot of water,” and that’s great. But are they eating hydrating foods, or just a lot of dry stuff?

    There are many symptoms of dehydration that are constantly misdiagnosed: Skin issues, Cramping in legs, Slow digestion, Constipation, Migraines/headaches

    By increasing fluids in your diet, huge physical changes can occur inside and out. In just a day or two you will feel better: less-puffy eyes, a flatter tummy, more energy, glowing skin.

    In health and Love,

    Pluggin’ in @ Whole Foods

    I am a member of the clique of folks allowed to park front and center at Whole Foods Market. Not only do I get to park up front, but I plug-in and charge up while shopping for organic quinoa and Dr. Bronner’s!
    Now, in addition to parking up front at Whole Foods, I probably get 95 miles to the gallon by keeping up with my charging. It’s easy to charge at home every night and now it’s easy to charge while I shop. I can’t say enough good things about this car and I hope to inspire you to join me in pluggin’ away at saving our planet one hybrid at a time.

    Anti-Cancer Nut

    Did you know that 3-5 brazil nuts a day is enough for the selenium that you need? I am going to buy a couple pounds and put in a cookie jar, then make sure I eat at least 3 a day. Here is the link to a great article about the subject!
