Favorite Everyday Products: Good-for-You Chocolate?

Thu, 09/11/2014 - 1:00am

Oh yes it is! One of my ultimate most favorite everyday product is IsaDelights Plus chocolates. These little buggers taste AWESOME, once you have them and try to eat a Hershey bar, you will think you are eating wax (OK, you kind of are…but I digress).

What makes these guys so special? They not only make you LOOK good as they help keep your sweet tooth satisfied without blowing your goals, and they make you FEEL good as they release dopamine to make your brain happy. When your brain is happy, YOU are happy, your family is happy, your partner is happy…etc. etc. etc.

A little more info from the website on these little wonders:

When your brain is low on “feel-good” chemicals, it seeks out sugar, junk food and caffeine to artificially boost your energy and mood levels. IsaDelight Plus is specially formulated with green tea extract, amino acids, antioxidants, B vitamins and minerals to help ease those cravings. The creamy Milk Chocolate and delicious Dark Chocolate squares also boost your energy, mood and fire up your fat-burning potential.

  • Curbs cravings on Cleanse Days or any day (Yes we can have chocolate on CLEANSE DAYS!).

  • Low in sugar, equal to 1/8 of an apple

  • Helps burn fat

  • Only 60 calories per treat

Contact me to get your hands and brain on this buggers or order them here.

Recipe Of The Week: Bulletproof Coffee

Wed, 09/10/2014 - 1:00am

I’ve talked about my love of bulletproof coffee on Facebook and every time I do, I have people ask me to share what it is. When I do, some are a little taken aback when I mention adding a tbsp. of butter to their coffee. Now before you go “ewwwwww”, just know I thought the same thing when I first read about it and then decided to give it a try. Let me tell you….it is AWESOME, as long as the butter is organic and unsalted, and comes from cattle that are grass-fed and raised hormone and anti-biotic free. It’s simple to make and will be better than any concoction you get at Starbucks. (For me, I love my Americanno, but it now pales in comparison to my bulletproof!

Here’s how I make mine:

Step 1: I start by cold-pressing my coffee. I grind my own beans as needed, place three 1/8 c. scoops in the bottom of a French Press and fill with water. I will let sit at least overnight and press in the morning. (I get two servings out of my press as I usually only have one cup a day). I fill my large coffee mug with coffee to measure and then heat on the stove (I choose to NOT microwave for personal reasons…I don’t microwave much.). You can use regular brewed coffee if you choose.

Step 2: While my coffee is heating, I put a tbsp. each of Kerrygold unsalted butter and Organic UNrefined coconut oil in the bottom of the coffee mug. (You can use straight MCT oil as well).

Step 3: When coffee is hot, I pour about 1/3 of the hot coffee over the butter and oil and then mix with a stick blender (I only fill to 1/3 full as the whipping action will have it overflow if you fill it too full!).

Step 4: Pour the rest of the hot coffee in the cup and enjoy!

Some recipes call for more butter, but my taste buds prefer the tbsp. of each. True Bulletproof coffee is suppose to be made with some specially roasted beans, (which I have placed an order…) and will let you know if there is a difference.

Give it a try and come on back and let me know what you think!

What’s REALLY In Our Food: A Little Paint Additive as Salad Dressing?

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 1:00am

From the Rodale News website:

What it is: Titanium dioxide is a component of the metallic element titanium, a mined substance that is sometimes contaminated with toxic lead. 

Where it is: Commonly used in paints and sunscreens, big food corporations add it to lots of things we eat, too, including processed salad dressing, coffee creamers, and icing. 

Why it’s bad: The food industry adds it to hundreds of products to make dingy, overly processed items appear whiter. “White has long been the symbolic color of ‘clean,’” explains food industry insider Bruce Bradley, who shares the tricks, traps, and ploys of big food manufacturers on his blog, BruceBradley.com. “Funny, when you use real food, you don’t need any of these crazy additives—I think I prefer the real deal.” 

These types of ingredients added to food is why I believe it is more important than ever to cleanse our bodies of impurities regularly. Contact me for more information by clicking on the “contact” floating button or text me at 407-545-8113.

#FeedYourSoulSunday

Sun, 09/07/2014 - 8:29am

IF ONLY YOU KNEW HOW POWERFUL YOU ARE! That flame that is buried within you, can impact hundreds if not thousands if not hundreds of thousands of lives! DO NOT keep it to yourself. YOU ARE a beacon of light, YOU ARE a leader….YOU MATTER! This image gives me chills every time I see it, because what you think you are/aren’t isn’t true….YOU ARE a light, you ARE, period. EXCLAMATION POINT.

I have shared this image a few times recently in the past, and feel compelled to do so again. This past week, I have been connecting with people and asking what excites them. I find it a little sad that so many cannot answer the question and when pressed further still have a hard time sharing what they would do if lack of time and money weren’t a barrier.

What is exciting is once they get past the mental block of feeling it’s selfish to voice what they daydream about, is watching their soul start to light up. Once they get out the material things they would like to do: travel, new car, new house, be able to buy their kids certain things, which they usually apologize for.

What is REALLY exciting… once they get their soul lit, in their heart, what REALLY drives most people is they want to make a contribution to this world and leave a legacy. The flame becomes a fire, the fire becomes a bonfire and for some, once they get going, it’s like a massive forest fire raging out of control!

Stop letting life pass you by and watching others LIVING LIFE OUT LOUD. You can too…you DESERVE to. We were all born to be great, to stand out to contribute with our hearts and souls wide open. GO GIVE IT TO THE WORLD. Shine your light so brightly, so others can find their light and feel like they can let theirs shine too. I wish I could tell each one of you HOW AWESOME you really are. Go for what you want. Chase your dreams. Pursue you passion. It will not lead you astray!

“When you discover how fulfilling and exciting life can be, you don’t want others to know how amazing your life is now. You want others to live this amazing life as well!!!” Zach Sikich

#FreedomFriday: Making Handling Finances Easy

Fri, 09/05/2014 - 1:00am

This post could almost fit under “favorite everyday products” because the app I am going to share, is one I use EVERY day. As of last week when I bared my soul with my last Freedom Friday post about not being ‘congruent’, I might as well put it ALL out there. In the past, I have SUCKED at managing my money. It is not something I was ever taught in school or by my parents. I grew up with a mom and dad who worked hard, my brothers and sisters never went without food or clothing, and they did the best they could, we just didn’t have a lot of it. So, being the free spirit I am, if it wasn’t something I was good at and didn’t THINK I needed to learn it, I was flying by the seat of my pants. The problem: Mark was the same way, but it’s never too old to teach and old dog new tricks, right!

Recently I have been reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind (AND just signed up for a weekend Millionaire Mind Intensive seminar with THE T. Harv himself!), Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover and have found this great little bugeting and money trackning app called “Mint”.  I have to say, it is pretty “mint” (is my 80′s girl showing here?).

It takes a little time and effort to set your budget, link your accounts and such, but it is SO worth it. It easily tracks spending and will even send you warnings and tell you “you’ve gone over your gas and transportation budget for the month. Perhaps you should take a look at that”. Yep, an app that is even nice when it really should say “DANGER. DANGER. DANGER. WHOA LADY YOU’VE BEEN DRIVING WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO MUCH THIS MONTH. LET’S TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT THIS”.

It has been enlightening for me to see where our money REALLY does go. As Dave Ramsey says: what you don’t track will most certainly find away to leave. Keep an eye on your money, so you can keep more of it! Remember, no matter how healthy you are physically, if you are constantly stressed about money, you are not TRULY healthy.

I would love to hear some of your favorite ways of controlling and keeping tack of your spending!
