~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Keep Your New Year's Resolution The Easy Way ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ever made a New Year's Resolution? Ever kept one? :-) To kick off the New Year, after being underground stamping out my spam and working on a ordering database, this seems like a great topic to start publishing with again. The challenge with New Year's Resolutions is the same as with any change. Our neurologys build up inertia for doing the same things, the same way, over and over. This is referred to as patterning. One simple, easy way to trick your neurology into embracing change is by gently destabilizing patterning. The sledgehammer approach to destabilizing patterns is to use psychoactive chemicals - LSD, Eve, Ecstasy, etc. This is similar to playing Russian Roulette with half the chambers loaded. Tricky at best. The gentle approach is to flood your body with nutrient dense foods. Increasing nutrient density tends to erode out dated patterning, making the neurology flexible and ripe for change. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 11 Tricks of the Trade ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To begin, check in and notice what foods you crave, especially when your under stress traveling or dealing with unusually family situations arising around the holidays. Then feed your cravings with wild abandon, using high quality, nutrient dense Super Foods to replace your normal foods. You can try a variety of experiments with many of the Super Foods and Super Nutrients here: http://RadicalHealth.com/order For example, 1) Guzzle Goji Carry a few bottles of Goji Juice with you, mix with equal parts water or fresh citrus juice and guzzle with wild abandon. You'll find yourself smiling your way through airport fiascoes and well meaning family comments. My favorite Goji Juice recipe is: 4oz. Goji Juice 2oz. Water 1T Lemon Juice 1 Pure Radicance Vita-C 1/8t Pure Organic MSM Alternatively: 8oz. Goji Juice 24oz. Grapefruit Juice (freshly squeezed) 1 Lemon or Lime 1t Himalayan Salt 2) Binge on Sugar! Carry a squeeze bottle of Raw Agave Nectar with you and substitute for sugar at every turn. 3) Enzyme Magic If you find yourself overeating, enjoy some enzymes with your meals and in between meals. Focus on Digest for digesting sugar/carbs with fats. Focus on Protease for digesting proteins with fats. 4) Binge on Chocolate! Use Raw Cacao (Chocolate), powdered in a coffee grinder, in stead of other chocolates. In fact, equal parts of: Raw Cacao Raw Agave Nectar Raw Almond Butter Raw Bee Pollen (optional) will restore your faith in Chocolate. 5) Eat more Cream! When you require creams for recipes, use a mixture of Cold Stored Cashews and Solar Hemp Seeds with Dark Agave Nectar for outrageous creams. 6) De-Stress is the Best Stress Before, during and after stressful situations have a shot of Daytime Angstrom Minerals or a pinch of Himalayan Pink Salt. 7) Surfing Wild Hormones Holidays seem tailor made to whacking out hormones for men and women. To balance hormones, avoid all soy except whole Edaname beans and Miso. Liberally cover your salads Solar Hemp Seeds. Veges and Hemp are great too. Binge on Raw Chocolate (see above). Enjoy mock Orange Julius treats: 1T Solar Hemp Seeds 1T Rainbow Bee Pollen 8oz Fresh Orange Juice 8) Boost Your Immune System Being sick is no fun and sickness tends to stress reserves and cause bodies to encourage strict inertia to protect against further, unknown uses of reserves. Add 1 cap of Pure Radiance Vita-C to every 4 oz. of Goji Juice. Add 1 cap of Pure Radiance Vita-C to your lemon juice, olive oil and hemp seed salad dressing. Have a daily dose of Garden of Life Seasonal Relief to keep your system free of unfriendly microbes. 9) Soak up Mucho Sun Get as much sun as possible. If the sun is obscured where you live... move... :-) If it's bitter cold, wrap up warm and stand outside sun gazing for a few minutes every day. 10) Soak up Mucho Heat Bodies expend enormous energy raising body heat, when it's cold. Layer up with clothes, when you go out. Heat your bed with an electric blanket, then turn it off and unplug it before you sleep. Enjoy hot, salt baths. 11) Role all your Super Foods into some obscene, daily, smoothie decadence. Here's the recipe for my favorite smoothie - Chocolate Silk: 2T Raw Cacao 1T Pine Nuts 1/2t Himalayan Salt 1/4t Cinnamon Powder 6 Arabian Night Dates 2t Solar Hemp 1t Rainbow Bee Pollen 1t Island Gold, Raw Coco Butter 1/2C Dark, Premium, Raw Agave Nectar 1/4C Blue Berries 1C Cold Stored Macadamia Nuts 8 Brazil Nuts Vita Mix all ingredients with 1C water till smooth. Then add water for desired consistency and sweetness. I use 4-5 cups. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Wrapping Up ~~~~~~~~~~~ Articles/Recipes: RadicalHealth.com Product Catalog : RadicalHealth.com/order" Be patient with replies, as many days I receive 100+ inquiries.
