Choose Healthy: What do you want?

healthy-life-concept-handwriting-words-teen-topics-34254289

Choose healthy! What do you Want? How Can I help you get there? What do you need to get you to where you want to be?

What do you really want? You can’t find contentment if you don’t know what you are looking for.  Choose healthy: it’s always a choice. But what do you want? What do you really, really want? Is it less weight, more energy, deal with pain, counter fatigue? I can best help you if I truly know your needs. Not your wants. Not even your goals. What is it you need to do what it takes to get what you want?

Nancy here. We started this page as a hangout. A place to gather. I’d love some guest bloggers.  I’d love to exchange stories and see what a common focus is. I know what’s important to me. But what about you? What do you need to Choose Healthy? What is it that would elevate your choices from a kinda half-assed healthy to all they time Choose Healthy as a way of living?

Are you looking for ways to fight illness?
Ways to deal with arthritis?
Do you want meal plans, menu ideas?
Do you want budget focused healthy options?
Look- I’m not a rich chick with oodles of surplus money. If I can live healthy on any kind of budget, I can sure teach you my methods.
If it’s not knowing how to shop – I can help there too.
Some clients really just want validation, happiness, and self-love. They need to know that that ooey-gooey chocolate cake doesn’t mean death to their diet! And it doesn’t.
I don’t know — what do you really want.

How deep do we go here?   Do we want to talk recipes like our Mom’s used to do? My Mom got some of her best recipes by sitting around a table talking with her friends. They shared. They exchanged recipes. They talked about the latest tips and tricks. And then Mom made her own adaptation. So like my morning mashups, Mom would take a recipe, look in the fridge, and made something similar out of what she had.

Note: (Today’s mashup was spinach, cauliflower, mushrooms, and a tomato sauteed in olive oil with brewers yeast, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil — then added ONE egg and scrambled it, put a little parmesan on top with some black sesame seeds. Tasty! )

Choosing healthy foods and getting exercise isn’t that tough. Stay out of the center aisle, buy fresh, eat clean, and get moving… those thoughts are pretty obvious.  So what is it that YOU want to keep you focused on doing what you already know you want to do?

What do you want from me, your healthy life coach?

How do you want it?  E-Book? Webinar? Video?  What’s the main delivery?  Or — do you want to talk live-time with me?

Do you want a guide for surviving the junk food aisles? Tips for giving up unwanted habits? A simple infographic card that keeps you on task?

Tell me what you want.  Really.  I want to know. If I can help you to do what I’ve done, I want to do it.

I want to create a platform to meet your needs.

Kill Your Cold: Focus on Immunity Boosters

Kill your cold by improving your immunity, power up the strength of your immune system and change your mindset. If you don’t resonate with those who have a cold, you have a better chance of avoiding it.  Not sure why, but it’s always a part of the case. Think yourself healthy. 

There’s a bunch of stuff everyone thinks works. There’s old school, new school, and everything in between. My plan of attack remains the same:
Lots of fluids and lots of rest. Mild exercise. Avoid getting chilled. High Vitamin C and D3. Lot’s of citrus. Home made chicken soup. LemonGrass Soups and LemonGrass Ginger teas.

Here’s some great juice recipes:OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Cold killer juices:
The Original Blood Cleanser via Nature’s Pantry recipe: Red Beets, Carrots, Lemons, Apple, Garlic, Ginger and Tumeric

Clean Green: Parsley, spinach, cucumber, celery, lemon, lime, apple or pear, cilantro, and add some garlic as an antibiotic

High C: Orange, Lemon, lime, pineapple, celery, cucumber

Seems to me the only way through a cold is through a cold. But when you infuse yourself – your cells – with a top quality flood of nutrient dense anti-inflammatory, antibiotic natural foods int eh form of a juice, you enhance your immune system so much that you can avoid the cold or kill it before it kills you.

Off to the store I go. I’ve got to not be sick. One in the house is enough, thank you.

Keep it Simple

“Life is not complex. We are complex. Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing.”— Oscar Wilde

Why complicate things? The easiest way to get healthy is to live healthy. Eliminate all the obvious stuff. Obliterate the crap foods. Moderate your indulgences. And get a lot of fun activity into your daily life.

I read daily from people writing tips and guides on how to get healthy. You don’t need a massive detox if you choose to eat nutrient dense foods that are as fresh and natural as you can get them. You don’t need a 10-20- 60 day detox or reboot if you just start living simply, eating smaller portions, and moving your ass.

The diet industry is as huge and as bad as the pharma-medical-fitness industries. They are all building empires. Doctors can all write books, build websites, and talk a good game.

I’m just a consumer — I’ve got a ton of exercise toys, diet books, home remedies, kitchen tools — and the bottom line is there is no book, magic pill, potion, or bottle of tasty freezie pop that can replace the simple facts:

If you eat a healthy balanced diet, crowd out the bad with more fresh good, and you exercise your heart, your muscles, and your brain, you will get farther for longer than if you do any kind of crash diet.
