Family Fit Friday on the Beach

Uncategorized Jun 02, 2017

Family Fit Friday has been a favorite for our family.  We make it a priority to create fun workouts even the kids love to do.  Sticking with an exercise routine can be a struggle for anyone. But for busy parents,  squeezing in workouts can feel darn near impossible. After all, how are you supposed to find time to work out when you can’t even go to the bathroom undisturbed?

Make it a priority to incorporate fitness with your family and shoot for the morning when everyone is fresh, happy and energized.  Enjoy this video of our family having fun on the beach while getting in an intense, yet fun workout.

Super Blessings,

Gail & Shelly

Are These Inflammation Producing Foods Holding You Back?

When inflammation occurs in our body, there are chemicals from our body's white blood cells that are released into the blood or affected tissues to protect your body from foreign substances. ... Some of the chemicals cause a leak of fluid into the tissues, resulting in swelling. When this protective process occurs, it may stimulate nerves and cause pain.

Dr. Bruce Lipton, who is a well respected cell biologist, describes in his book, The Biology of Belief how we have the powerful to RADICALLY change our life by changing our MIND. “Let me tell you some fundamentals of how the mind works so this will be more clear to you,” Bruce said. “The cells of your body are merely following instructions given by the nervous system, by the brain. The nervous system does the interpretation. You can easily see this when you see two people reacting to the same stimulus with very different reactions, one positive and one negative.

Plant Based Food Travels | Stay Healthy Traveling

Uncategorized Apr 25, 2017

We had a blast on our first Disney Cruise with a 2 year old, 4 year old, and 5 year olds boys and our husbands. We had a day of driving a few hours and flying a few hours until we arrived on Easter Sunday on the cruise ship. The cruise is so great to make us special super plant-based friendly meals, which we absolutely love! Until we got to the ship we kept our immune system and energy high with our plant-based travel food.

There is no golden rule for air travel. Take your own food while traveling. We dream of the day that a gas station and airports have fresh juices, plant based raw meals and GMO food. Until then, bring your own hydrating food such as celery, cucumbers, sprouts, and tropical fruit. Also bring some dried fruit, kale chips, and plant-based protein powders and green powder. Make sure to also bring supplements, including a probiotic that has a double capsule lining, essentials oils and Aqua Mineral water drops to purify the water and add vitality trace minerals. ...
