What you need to read this weekend!

Happy June everyone!!!! Hi all you gorgeous followers! How has your week been going? For some of you it’s been a short week right? Well, short, long, easy or tough, let’s get a mug of tea (I’m drinking “Harney & Sons Tropical Green ~ green tea with pineapple flavor~ yum), a cup of coffee, a fresh pressed juice or a glass of wine (depending on the time zone), snuggle up & get to reading what I think is wonderful out there right now!

Conscious Diva’s has a cute 21 rules to live by post. I love the one about not judging. I have to admit that I’m too guilty of that one. I really need to practice!

Kris Carr’s site has some wonderful tips on how to try eating Raw. Easy, Simple, Slow & Steady. Check it out here to see just how to go about trying! It’s for your health & I’m pretty sure you won’t regret it :) She also has a Wicked post about your thoughts & how you are probably projecting some nasty stuff out into the world.

OhSheGlows is one of my Go~To sites for Recipe Inspiration. The month of June she is having a Salad Challenge. I’m all over that Healthy mess, are you? Go check it out & let’s share favorites!!

Have you ever made you’re own Sauerkraut? My hubby has (as I’m a little scaredy~cat when it comes to things like that). The Detoxinista has a great & easy recipe here if you want to give it a try. There are a million benefits to eating fermented foods, try to add it into your routine!

While I don’t think everyone is Celiac, I do think that the Grains of today are EVIL. That being said, I really want everyone to take care in the types of grains that you buy & feed yourselves & family. Quinoa, Brown Rice (sprouted of course) & many ancient grains should be fine when used moderately. But the grains of today (yes, whole grains even) should not be ingested because they just can’t be tolerated properly in our bodies. Wellness Warrior Jess tells you more here.

Stress is such a daily thing for people now. If you can’t get out to meditate at least do your best to give your body what it needs to help fight or repair from this monster. WakeUp World has a post on that here.

I have a bone to pick with “Healthy” Brands toting Unhealthy foods to unsuspecting people who are just trying to do good. Here is an article about ‘energy bars‘ AKA ‘fancy’ granola bars, which do you buy thinking they’re good for you?

Posture is very important to a healthy spine, heart, head, and so much more. Here, GreenMedInfo has a tip on improving your posture! (practice practice practice!!)

And last but not least, here is my post again on doing my first ever 10k! It’s been nearly a week since then, & I’m feeling really great. Proud that I finished & excited to get this 1/2 Marathon done too! (say, have you taken a moment to donate to the Charity I’m running for? It’s David Suzuki you know & every little bit helps!!)

What you should be reading this weekend!

Hi my dear lovely followers! How has your week been? It’s Friday, It’s Friday!!! I can’t believe it’s Friday! I have only 2 more days until my very first ever 10k!! Wouldn’t you know it, but my Sciatica is totally acting up again. I can’t sit or stand… knock on wood & cross your fingers it settles down before the big run. I’m thinking only Positive thoughts here :)

So, are per the Usual, grab a mug of tea or coffee, a fresh pressed juice or a glass of wine (depending on your time zone) & enjoy these reads I’ve found for you this week :)

Conscious Diva’s have 2 great posts this week. Have you ever wondered ‘to diet or not to diet‘, well what if you don’t want to do either? Check out this great post (& email me for a quick chat, I’m here to help!) Also, find out where you are & what’s holding you back & how to be free!

By now you should know Kris Carr (Crazy Sexy Life) & Marie Forleo right… Right??? Well they did a little business Q&A here, & it’s great. Has anyone signed up for Marie’s B~School? I’d love to, but it’s not in the cards right now. If you have, please share, I’d love to know how it’s going :)

It’s Danielle LaPonte’s B~day today, & she’s giving us a deal (pay what you can) for her books Your Big Beautiful Book Plan. I’m thinking of heading over there today to snag my own copy, but hurry, it’s only on today!

You are what you eat (& Digest). Beauty comes from Within. These are all very true. Here Diary of a nutritionist tells us why what we eat affects our skin.

What’s the difference between a Human Being & a Human Doing? Dr. Sukhi tells us in this video. He’s always got great videos, we’ve been quite followers for quite a long time, even before we moved out west!

GreenMedInfo is a site full of info. I mean FULL. It can take days just to go thru it, all the while finding interesting things along the way. This week my top 2 post are about the special herb Turmeric & how it can help over 500 different symptoms ( I also have it as one of my SuperFoods & really do believe that everyone should incorporate it into their daliy routines~ don’t know how? email me to find out!) , as well, they have a great post on 6 bodily tissues that can be re~generated thru Nutrition! how cool is that!

Did you know that May is Eye Health Month? I’ve been having some strange issues with my eyes, & with this little reminder, I’m off to make an appointment :) In the meantime, WakeUp World has some herbs I can use for Eye Health here!

Do you know how Toxins affect your Weight loss (or lack of it)? It’s a viscious circle, detoxing, toxins, weight loss, weight gain, etc. Here Detoxinista sheds some light on the subject. For more personal info, contact me!

Wanna cheap way to eat superfoods (less then 1$ cheap)? WakeUp World has 12! Can’t afford the 1$, stop spending your money on these so called healthy foods & you will!

There is still a few days to get in on the Veeva Happy Pills Coupon. Did you order your yet? And if you still have a few moments or sips of tea, please take a quick look at my survey as it would help me out a lot :)

So when you get up on Sunday & are enjoying your mug of tea or Coffee, please say a little ‘whoopwhoop’ for me & my 10k, & have a very very lovely weekend!

Stuff I loved reading…

Happy Easter Weekend All! I’m so excited that Spring has Sprung & I have a (mostly) long weekend. Is it weird that I have Friday, Saturday & Monday off? ;) huh… I guess I’ll take it! This year we’re doing a TON of different things for the Easter Celebrations. I won’t give them all away, but needless to say it’s 100% Vegan (besides a few chocolate treats~milk), but there will be no eggs, etc! Can’t wait!

What are your plans for the Long Weekend?

This week I’ve put my ‘must reads’ into categories. Please grab your coffee, tea or ;) glass of wine & enjoy my specially chosen post for your reading pleasure!

For Inspiration & Growth within Yourself:

My new found must go~to daily lovely site is Gentle Living where Liz shows me how to be more Centered & Balanced. Here she shows us the importance of Breathing & her 25 self care tips is amazing too!

Conscious Divas has a great article about Calming our Energy, I especially love #2 where it says to ‘brush the dush off your shoulders’. # 4 (get out doors) & #5 of meditation is a must I 100% agree!

Kris Carr at Crazy Sext Life has done it again (ok, I say this every bleepin’ week). But she has! Read her Love Rules , Follow your Heart, & of course the Article I’ve been sharing on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest all week long Nourish your Inner Introvert!

Here are a few cute Green Tips from The Well Daily. I must admit I didn’t even think of throwing my contact lenses in the Recycle bin, but I am guilty of that no longer!!! :)

Must try Recipes

Detoxinista has done it again! I’m speechless~ I can’t wait to try this recipe out. Do you love sushi like me? Take a look at how ingenious she is with this substitution of carrot pulp (from your juicer, you have a juicer right?) for Rice!!

so….. what do you do if you don’t have a juicer (tsk tsk) or maybe you just don’t want to use your left over carrot pulp instead of rice? then go over to Sarah’s site & try Quinoa sushi~ how amazing do they look? Needless to say, we’ll be eating a TON of Vegan sushi around here!!!

I love Miso. It’s one of my top fav’s in the world. I also am pretty partial to Asparagus, especially when it’s in season. So what do you get when you add these together? Boom!

A new blog I started following has proven to be great. Love this one with rice & mushrooms!!!

What would YOU say if someone told you they could make you a fabĀ  Vegan White Macadamia Nut Cookie? Whaaaat? Yah, I thought so.

Ok, so talking about cookies…. here’s another one. (Because you really can’t have enough cookies~ especially if you live with 2 cute little cookie monsters!!)

Let’s end off with how I started my weekend morning. OH Deer Buddha!!! Grab a coffee & top it like you’ve always wanted to but never had the guts!!!

Hope you enjoyed! Have a super hoppy Weekend ;)
