The Story of My Awakening (Part 3) - You Should Stop Breastfeeding

awakening story Nov 22, 2021
Hey there :) 
 
I gave birth to my son in September 2011. 
 
I ended up having a C-section as he was breached and it was a traumatic birthing experience (more on that another time).
 
He was not a happy baby. He was a miserable baby.
 
He was constantly crying, gagging, spitting up, and seemed to always be in pain.
 
It was hell as a brand new mom. 
 
This experience did not mirror the hypothetical early motherhood experience I dreamed up before he was born.
 
I went to the pediatrician to tell him all about the excruciating pain my son was having.
 
He examined him and said, “Well I don’t see anything wrong, it could just be acid reflux and I think he could be allergic to something in your milk.”
 
Then he continued to suggest that I stop breastfeeding and find a formula to try.
 
He wrote me a prescription for some acid reflux medicine and walked out of the room. That was the last time I ever saw...

The Story of My Awakening (Part 2) - The Glowing Woman

Uncategorized Nov 22, 2021
I shared with you how the moment I walked out of my doctor's office with a pad of prescriptions, was truly the inception of my awakening... I just didn't know it yet. 
 
A few weeks after that experience, I saw in human form what health truly looked like.
 
 During this time I was so confused and concerned about my health. 
 
I was doing all the right things. 
 
Eating what the FDA told me to and exercising strenuously. 
 
I had cut calories and exercised more... but the more I focused on this simple equation, the worse I seemed to be getting. 
 
I always had lower back pain, my nose was always running, my periods were horrible and sporadic and I was constantly suffering from anxiety and bouts of depression. 
 
I saw my future as an older, overweight, and sick woman dependent on pills like ALL the adults in my family and those I was surrounded by at my work. 
 
I just couldn't accept this...

The Story of My Awakening (Part 1) - Pad of Prescriptions

deep thoughts my journey Nov 22, 2021
 
 
It all started 14 years ago.
 
This was the beginning of my awakening out of the matrix. 
 
I was 28 years old and walked out of my doctor’s office with a pad of prescriptions.
 
In this particular visit, I had gone in hope of more antibiotics.
 
I truly believed they cured everything, and had NO idea of the detrimental effects they have on our bodies and gut health. 
 
I had suffered from recurring UTIs, chronic sinus infections, debilitating lower back pain, tons of digestive issues, horrible PMS… and consistent anxiety, and bouts of depression.
 
This way of life was my normal.
 
Feeling like crap was normal.
 
I was 15-20 pounds overweight and hated my body.
 
I could not lose weight for the life of me.
 
What was so confusing about my poor health was that I truly thought I lived a healthy lifestyle.
 
I followed the FDA’s nutritional guidelines, low-fat, moderate protein, a daily...

The 3 Types of Processed Foods

 My quest to help people become more informed about the very food they put into their bodies has led me to realize that not all processed foods are bad! 

There are some simple principles that we can use to understand what food is good for us and what isn't. 

With all of the mixed and manipulative marketing messaging out there, it's no wonder so many people have no idea how to eat healthy! 

The more you understand what is and what it not processed, the easier it will be to make more informed decisions of what you put into your sacred and beautiful body. 

But first, let's define what the characteristics are of food that actually is nourishing:  

  1. Found in Nature
  2. Has One Ingredient
  3. From Whole Real Foods 
  4. Nutrient-Dense
  5. Properly Prepared

So what is food that does not nourish our body? Well, it's:  

  1. Moderately or heavily processed
  2. Has a long ingredient list
  3. Nutrient-deficient 

What I hope this blog post does is...

Your Life is a Garden

inspiration Nov 08, 2021
THE GARDEN OF LIFE
 
When our lives begin we set in an empty garden with rich and nourishing soil and limitless potential.
 
We are granted the possibility for anything and everything to grow.
 
A vast empty canvas for us to create our lives and our fullest expression of what we bring to the world.
 
Our gift is deeply planted within the garden, awaiting us to create a healthy and harmonious container so that it can take root and grow.
 
We also have deep-rooted ancestral seeds to teach us lessons and show us how to become master gardeners.
 
Yet, soon after birth, we learn that our garden is not quite perfect.
 
We are told by others that our garden is lacking and just not enough.
 
It’s to this or to that.
 
It’s not quite this or not quite that.
 
Our culture and society show us their beautiful displays and tell us, “you see, this is how it is done.”
 
They throw their seeds in our precious soil and we...

The Most Powerful Way to Create Health in Your Life and Community

 

“The shorter the chain between raw food and fork, the fresher it is and more transparent the system is.” Joel Salatin

Mother Nature provides humans everything they need to be healthy and heal.

It’s when humans think they know better and try to “outsmart” her is when they become the cause of their own demise.

Our policies allow neurotoxins and highly toxic chemicals to be used in and sprayed on our food.
 
Our country's population has never been more sick, and instead of helping our people improve their lifestyle and quality of life, we are told that pills and shots are the only answer. 
 
BULLSHIT. 
 
Evil and corrupt conglomerates profit from the dysfunction of the human body. 
 
They profit from humanity not knowing their divine innate power.
 
They hide the truth and we cannot change anything from the top down. 
 
We can only change these broken systems from the bottom up.
 
We...

My Poem to Humanity

conscious living poem Aug 30, 2021
I'm so grateful to be a conduit for this poem, it's called... 
 
Wake up from your slumber.
 
Wake up from your slumber
Humanity
Tossing and turning
In insanity
 
Forces control you
Like puppets on strings
Do you not see
Only suffering it brings
 
Feeding you poison
Consuming the lies
Media bought by Darkness
Your programmed soul cries
 
Obey and be good
Do not ask
Shut your mouth
Put on your mask
 
Foolish obedience
Of the walking dead
The perfect breeding ground
For any virus to spread
 
Fluoride in your water
To dumb us down
Don’t think for yourself
Just follow the clowns
 
Risk my health
To take care of you
But isn’t that your job?
Or, are you responsible for me too?
 
Segregate and discriminate
Civil war is their goal
Turn the people upon themselves
This will ensure their control
 
Believe the lies
And live in hell
Or perhaps
There is another narrative to tell
 
Open your mind
Open your eyes
For through...

Classic Basil Pesto

Pesto is packed with one of my favorite herbs, basil! 

This beautiful green herb offers the body many benefits as it is: 

  • anti-inflammatory
  • contains lots of antioxidants
  • supports our immune system
  • helps reduce pain
  • helps prevent diabetes
  • can protect the liver

It can also provide protection against bacteria growth and has been shown to inhibit resistant strains of bacteria! 

I try and include as many herbs as possible in my diet, as they not only provide us tons of health benefits, but they add flavor and depth to almost any dish! 

One of the main things I do to stay on track is to make things in advance for hangry Becky that tend to show up once in a while. 

I absolutely love dips like hummus, pesto, and guacamole, as they can be made in advance and devoured with cut-up veggies and gluten-free crackers. 

This pesto recipe can also be combined with spiralized zucchini noodles, grain-free pasta, or mixed into sauteed veggies or added to a marinara...

Buckwheat Porridge

Did you know that buckwheat isn’t wheat… it’s a seed. 

So crazy, I know :) 

This naturally gluten-free seed is nutrient-dense and is high both in protein and fiber. #boom

Buckwheat seeds, also called “groats” are packed with nutrients and antioxidants and are often referred to as a “superfood”. 

They are also a high source of amino acids, vitamins, minerals all with relatively few calories.

What else do you need in life?! 

This high fiber and easily digestible food can be made into a yummy porridge to mix up your breakfast. 

I always recommend mixing up what you eat! 

Just like I do in my oatmeal, I always add an egg, or two, to this porridge a few minutes before it's done. 

The egg(s) make it fluffy and adds protein! Our bodies love and need protein and adding healthy protein will keep you satiated longer!

Okay, let’s do this.

BUT FIRST! SOAK YOUR BUCKWHEAT!!

Oh and always source organic...
