Often we see that in making health-supportive changes, even if the intention is to only have shinier hair, our system responds accordingly which often brings upon other positive changes.

ROASTED GARLIC CAULIFLOWER HUMMUS

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

Before starting my journey through holistic nutrition, I went in thinking I had everything figured out. I ate healthy. I exercised regularly. I cooked with whole foods often. I was healthy, wasn’t I? A year into schooling, seemingly out of nowhere, I was handed a host of symptoms I had not previously experienced. What I initially thought were acute symptoms eventually turned chronic and I was riddled with stress and “poor-me” syndrome. My ignorance was not so blissful after all. I had (and still have) much to learn.

LET’S GET GROUNDED

Grounding. Nature’s therapy, antioxidant, and teacher. Also known as Earthing; a relatively new term for a timeless concept that involves directly connecting with the Earth’s surface, skin-to-skin. It’s about oneness and balance, stability and connectedness.

Our Earth is a giant magnet with a bottomless pit of electrons. These electrons are absorbed and then neutralized to release free radicals (electron thieves) from our bodies. We, as humans, are electrically charged beings and our natural connection to the Earth is through direct contact. We can create this connection by walking barefoot on soil, sand, or cement as we absorb these electrons on its surface, we then equalize the electrical potential in our bodies with that of the Earth. These electrons serve the function of antioxidants and offer immediate as well as long-term reduction of inflammation, better sleep, muscle recovery, boosted creativity, and stress relief.

WARMING TURMERIC SMOOTHIE

Once upon a time, I left my cushy corporate job to work at a juice bar. It was a drastic change, to say the least but one I do not regret. It was smack-dab in the middle of a dark, cold, disheartening Toronto winter and smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and raw foods were the furthest thing from my mind. Give me a bowl of hot and hearty lentil soup in lieu, then we’re talking. Though taking advantage of my situation, I never turned down a free smoothie (girl’s gotta eat!). Hours of experimenting later, I reached an “aha” now known as the Warming Turmeric Smoothie. I came to realize this particular mélange gave me the same warm-fuzzies that I’d experience from sipping a spiced chai or hot apple cider, even though it was as cold as, you know, a cold smoothie. My body temperature has always had a tendency to dip south of the thermometer, as I’m sure many can relate, but this cold smoothie quickly became part of my morning ritual, despite how contradictory that may seem. Let me explain…

GREEN PROTEIN BOWL + GOOD-FOR-EVERYTHING DRESSING

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go. I’m standin’ here outside your… you get the jist. Today marks the two week countdown to a new chapter in my life and I couldn’t be more excited to make a move to the west coast to delve into the unknown and fully immerse myself in nature, wellness, and all things health and healing.

When I think of moving, I don’t usually associate it with words like “easy” or “fun.” Though, needless to say, each time I’ve moved to a new country, province, or apartment within the same city, I’ve gained valuable life lessons that have given me the tools to make this one of the most seamless of moves yet. Of course, there have been bumps and sharp turns along the way but there has also been wide open road. When we move, we often rid our lives of clutter. We shed a skin of material things. Possessions, so I’ve come to realize, do not define us or represent our soul, nor do they create profound, long-lasting happiness.

Simplicity in nourishment and contentment in ones own life make for a fulfilled and happy soul.
