Happy National Popcorn Day!
๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿฟ
While popcorn has long been considered by many to be a healthy snack - as long as itโ€™s not loaded with butter and salt - corn production has been subsidized by the government since the 1970s.
.
Iโ€™m all for helping to support our #farmers any way that we can! But when ๐ŸŒฝ was first overproduced, we got innovative and made it into many new products - with many of those new products being โ€œfoodโ€.
.
High fructose corn syrup (aka HFCS) is one such example.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, โ€œHFCS increases your appetite and it promotes obesity more than regular sugarโ€.
.
โ€œIt also contributes to diabetes, inflammation, high triglycerides and something we now call non-alcoholic fatty liver diseaseโ€, according to Dr Hyman.
๐Ÿง๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง๐Ÿค”๐Ÿง
This is a something that is not only sold as a product itself in just about every grocery store, but it is also sold to food manufacturers as an ingredient to use in their packaged products!
.
Look on most packaged food labels and there is a good chance you will find HFCS listed as an ingredient.
๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ
How can we help the farmers farm different crops and produce more health-promoting #plants for us instead of more of what is making us sicker Americans?
๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜”
But even if these harmful ingredients wonโ€™t go away, you still have FREE WILL.
.
At any time you can #choose to eat foods that support your #health and well-being instead of foods that do damage! ๐ŸŽ‰
.
There is power in your fork and you have more power than you know. #choosewisely

2020 has certainly provided us all with some challenging times. Yet, rather than get down about it, I invite you to consider the lessons that have come out of this past year. What growth opportunities can you find for yourself as
...an individual
...a friend
...an employee
...someone in a leadership role
...a parent
...someone working on the frontlines
....or any other situation that resonates with you.
๐Ÿ’ซ ๐Ÿ’ซ ๐Ÿ’ซ
Challenge yourself to find the good in something, no matter how small it may seem. Itโ€™s still something....and that matters.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซโค๏ธ

I started this tradition with my kids a few years ago - we write things that we are grateful for in a sharpie marker all around a pumpkin. We try to add one new item each day leading up to Thanksgiving. Then, we use this as part of our centerpiece on the table (or if the pumpkin is too big for the table, we would leave it at the front door to welcome everyone when they arrive.)
Practicing gratitude and thankfulness helps us keep things in perspective and focused on what matters most to us.โค๏ธ
What are your traditions?
Wishing everyone a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

I know youโ€™re very busy. I get it. Youโ€™re running around like crazy trying to get it all done! But arenโ€™t you worth it? I think so. I think you deserve to give yourself the very best. No time to prepare nourishing meals? Stop. Make some time to treat yourself well. It takes just as much time to grab an apple as it does to grab some chips. Treat yourself with love and respect because itโ€™s your birthright and you deserve it!

10/22/2020

I canโ€™t remember where I first saw this picture but at the time it really struck me and so I saved it. Today I came across it again while looking for something else and it gave me pause as I thought of all of the people who are struggling with #mentalhealth and how rates of #suicide have increased over the past 6 months. ๐Ÿ˜”
.
There is so much turmoil in the world lately and for some, it seems too much of a burden to bear. People are struggling with how to cope with illnesses, loss of friends or loved ones, loss of a job, social injustice, or major shifts in routine. ๐Ÿ˜ท
.
I think about how much extra stress everyone is experiencing lately. ๐Ÿฅบ
.
I remember how many times Iโ€™ve heard people tell me that they have gained unwanted weight, find themselves stress eating, or how tired they are from lack of adequate sleep. ๐Ÿ˜”
.
Then I think about what can be done to help reverse this and bring more โ˜ฎ๏ธ to all.
.
Iโ€™m reminded how a deficiency (or even an insufficiency) of vitamins such as.....
B12
B6
Folate
Omega-3 fatty acids
and Vitamin D
can be linked to depression, fatigue and a host of other health problems.
.
Poor diet + Chronic stress = increased likelihood to have some sort of nutritional deficiency or insufficiency - because even if you think you are getting enough good nutrition, you may be having problems absorbing those nutrients adequately to meet your bodyโ€™s needs. ๐Ÿ’ก
.
Part of the solution?
โœ… Take time for yourself to #eatclean meals with health supporting ingredients. (Check out our website for free recipes and meal plans to support you!)
โœ… Manage your #stress levels with #relaxation techniques such as #yoga #breathwork or #mantra (Try a virtual yoga class with us! Schedule is posted on our website)
โœ… Support your #true self again and get back to effective #selfcare so you can regain, #reclaim or #maintain your #health and #wellness.
.
Because you are worthy of living a life with #optimalhealth and #wellness. You deserve to thrive! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!
๐ŸŽ‰
We are now offering virtual yoga classes online!!! ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ
๐ŸŽ‰
In September 2019, I had the pleasure of beginning a Teacher Training program at #osheayoga to become certified in Kundalini Yoga. Never would I have imagined that we would be finishing this program online due to a worldwide pandemic!
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Despite these challenges, the program ran smoothly and after 10 months of intensive training, I am proud to say that I am now fully Certified to teach Kundalini Yoga classes.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
Functional nutrition is all about getting to the root cause of imbalance in order to promote optimal health in the body. However, I feel Iโ€™ve always innately known that optimal health is about more than just what we eat.
๐Ÿฅฆ ๐Ÿฅ— ๐Ÿ† ๐ŸŽ
The best health promoting foods wonโ€™t have the same impact on us if we are totally stressed out or feeling angry, sad, overwhelmed or even resentful most of the time.
๐Ÿ˜ž ๐Ÿ˜ข ๐Ÿ˜ค
The technology of kundalini yoga has the ability to heal parts of our body and energy system that food alone cannot, which really supports my mission of helping people discover overall wellness within themselves. Itโ€™s why ALL of the ways that we nourish ourselves - including body, mind and #soul - really do matter as we seek optimal health and wellness. โœ…
๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ
We are so excited to be able to offer another way to support your wellness journey! ๐Ÿ˜

Harvest overload from your garden? I had an explosion of zucchini. Canโ€™t let those gems go to waste! Freeze what you canโ€™t use now so you can enjoy it later. Some are sliced to make an easy veggie bake later. Some are shredded to use later in zucchini bread or other recipes.
๐Ÿ˜‹
What else can I use shredded zucchini for? Mix with shredded sweet potatoes to make hash browns? Any ideas or recipes to share??

Besides food, what other ways are you nourishing yourself? 2020 so far has proven to be an unprecedented year. Our world is experiencing so much stress in so many ways. ๐ŸŒŽ ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ
.
Of course our health is dependent on the quality of foods that we choose to eat to nourish our body. ๐Ÿฅฆ
.
Yet even if we are eating the โ€œhealthiestโ€ foods, our health can still be negatively affected by too much stress. Coping well with the stress in our lives is a crucial piece to experiencing good health and how we process our emotions plays an important role in our ability to manage stress.
.
Are you easy to anger? Get annoyed easily? Find people or common situations irritating?
๐Ÿ˜ค ๐Ÿ˜ก ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ž
How does this make you feel in your body? Tense? Anxious? Nauseous? Headache? ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿค•
.
How do you deal with these feelings?
- Are you reaching for a cigarette ๐Ÿšฌ?
- Do you stress eat? ๐Ÿจ ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿช
- Do you reach for an alcoholic beverage? ๐Ÿท ๐Ÿบ
.
Are you now experiencing the โ€œquarantine fifteenโ€??
.
Itโ€™s so important to take some time for yourself and remember to nourish your body and soul in other health promoting ways that may not always be about food. This is the complete wellness package that is required for optimal health.
.
I enjoyed a #hike with some #friends and some online #kundaliniyoga classes this week.

What will you do this week to relax and manage the stress in your life?

The most nourishing of foods are created by nature to work harmoniously with our bodies. When was the last time you slowed down enough to really enjoy your meal?
Nature canโ€™t be rushed to do its magic for you.
Slowing down enough to prepare a nourishing meal and enjoying it shows your appreciation of the miracle in how food was created for you.

05/22/2020

Cauliflower offers such great health benefits! But how can we keep it from turning brown so quickly? Here are a few tips to help keep your cauliflower lasting longer:

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Unwrap whole cauliflower as soon as you get home from the store and transfer it to a loosely sealed plastic bag with a paper towel tucked in It to absorb any extra moisture. This is usually good for a week or a little longer in a well-regulated fridge.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Itโ€™s best to store it in its whole form until ready to use. It can be precut and stored in the fridge as well but it is best to use it within 4 to 7 days.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Donโ€™t wash it until right before you are ready to use it. The moisture can cause it to brown quicker.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฟ While it can be stored at room temperature for about 2 to 4 days, itโ€™s best kept in the fridge.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ While a few brown spots, if caught early, can be cut off and the remaining cauliflower still used, youโ€™ll know itโ€™s gone bad if the brown spots have taken over and spread all over the cauliflower head.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป You can always freeze your cauliflower to use at a later time. While you can freeze it raw, blanching it before freezing in hot water will help to preserve the nutrients. Also, recommend cutting it up into pieces before freezing - easier to store this way because it takes up less space in your freezer and then is easier to use when you take it out later if itโ€™s pre-cut.

Q: What about if it already started to get a few small brown spots on it, can you still eat it?

A: Yes! They are harmless and you can still cook with it too, as long as the spots do not have a dark color or have turned mushy or of course, moldy.

Quick and Easy Air Fryer Cauliflower

PRO TIP: Cut up some cauliflower and store it in a plastic bag until ready to use. Then there is less mess which means less clean-up when you mix this all together in the bag you are storing it in! Pour it from the bag right into the Air Fryer for cooking and you've got quick, easy and delicious cauliflower! Enjoy getting more of these cancer-fighting cruciferous veggies on your plate! :-)

My Story๐Ÿƒ

Nutrition Matters, LLC first began in Hoboken, NJ in February 2005 and is now located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Much of my previous work was with Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies helping individuals and groups find creative ways to integrate healthier habits into their busy lives. Together, we looked at the root cause of what is ailing people and we found solutions that were suited to their unique nutritional biochemical needs and personal goals. It's like a personalized recipe so you can enjoy life with optimal health! โš•๏ธ

โ€‹"Nutrition is about more than the food we choose to eat for our body. It's about how we nourish ourselves in other ways too including mind and spirit. We are all a collection of amazing synergies"
