What’s in the Raw Promise?

My last post I talked about a program called the Raw Promise.

The Raw Promise, is a about optimal health & weight management, if you need to lose you will and if you need to gain you will.  When we nourish the cells of our body, the body weight regulates, because it eliminates toxins and works more effeciently.

So what is in the Raw Promise you may be wondering.  Do I have to buy and use all the products?

Well of course you do not have to use all the products, they are meant to compliment a healthy lifestyle.  We have different starting packs, but you can always customize to meet your individual needs.

Now if you are needing a boost, a gentle body detox, and proven system that you simply have to follow to get you started then of course then I would recommend doing the full month Raw Promise.

So let’s go over the products that are included in our Raw Promise

energy, sleep, fat. Power Code E2L is a proprietary coded

Hemp goodness!


So this a topic I really love!  HEMP!!!

Hemp is such a versatile plant.  Also known as cannabis sativa.

Hemp can be used to make over 30,000 different products.

First off let’s talk about nutrition.  This is such a complete seed and I believe a great addition to any healthy diet.

Hemp contains; Essential Fatty Acids, all 21 known amino acids (including 9 essential ones that the body cannot produce), protein, fiber.

In my home I have always a bag of hemp hearts, we add them to salad, yogurt, oatmeal, smoothies. Hemp oil, hemp protein are 2 other products that I love having on hand.

The next thing that I will be trying is homemade hemp milk

8 Principles of health Day 5 -Trust in Nature

We all need to EAT to LIVE, not LIVE to EAT.

The purpose of eating goes far beyond just feeling full.

It’s about providing optimal nutrition to the cells of the body so that it is able to work effectively & efficiently.

We all need a balance of protein, fibre, carbs, essential fatty acids, enzyme…..

Eat abundantly food that come from plants not manufactured in a plant!

Eliminate or at least limited process foods – they are dead nutritionally and often have harmful additives

Back to the basics – when grocery shopping stay on the outer aisle this is where you will find the live food.

Fruit, veggies, nuts, meats (if possible go with wild /organic/free range ,  meat from animals raised without hormones & antibiotics)

The more you can eat your food in the Raw form, the more nutrients you will get out of it.

I love doing smoothies & juicing with my family.  Not always easy to get a lot of fresh veggies into kids, making it fun and drinkable helps me ensure they are getting enough.

There is a great site YOUNG & RAW , it contains recipes, green smoothie challenge… I have sent many of my clients & friends there for healthy meal ideas.

Health begins with what you put in, eat quality nutritious foods and health will definitely improve.



What’s for breakfast?

Well I at least hope that you have answer to this questions.

How many times have you heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?

Well it’s true.  Breakfast fuels your body for the day a head.

Have you ever left the house not having a chance to eat, do you remember how you felt as the day went on.  Without eating you probably felt weak, had a hard time concentrating and was most likely irritable, cranky.

I am normally a very pleasant positive person, but if I do not eat regularly I get very cranky.  My kids & hubby know if I have gone too long between meals.

So why is it so important to eat breakfast?  Here are few reasons why!

1. Eating breakfast helps you lose weight –  When you start your day with a healthy breakfast, you are less likely to binge throughout the day.

2. Skipping it makes it harder to meet your nutritional needs – If you skip breakfast you are depriving your body of an opportunity to get essential nutrients, it already hard enough to pack enough nutrition into our diet daily, take out breakfast and most will not eat enough fruits, veggies, good fats

3. It’s easy , even if your are not hungry – You don’t need a huge breakfast, but pick something that is balance and sustaining.

4. You’ll have more energy – Try starting your car with an empty gas tank, you wouldn’t get to far, same with your body, you cannot run on empty!

So what would make up of a healthy sustaining breakfast?  Here are some of my favorites.

* Small bowl of oatmeal with hemp, raw pumpkin seeds and frozen berries.

* Pro-biotic low-fat yogurt (watch for artificial sweeteners) with hemp & nuts

* Protein shake , I always add spinach, kale, and frozen fruit.  I use either THUNDER or FIXX (my preference)

* Green smoothie or juice – Kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, green pepper, green apple.

* Poached eggs with slices of tomatoes .

* Celery sticks with all natural peanut butter or almond butter.

Bottom line do yourself a favor a start your day off right with some wholesome nutrition.  You will see you will have more energy, be more productive and better mood.
