Want To Eat Healthier, Now What?



Okay, Now What Do I Eat?

As you begin your transition to a more wholesome diet, remember that tastes for foods are learned. You may want to begin slowly, by replacing high-fat dairy products with fat-free versions and eating meat less often. However, making a complete break from animal foods is so rewarding that it’s actually easier for most people.
All your needs for protein, calcium and other vital nutrients are easy to satisfy if you eat enough calories each day from a wide variety of foods. It’s that simple! The only nutrient deserving extra consideration is Vitamin B-12, which, since it is made by bacteria, is not naturally present in plants (or meat). Your B-12 requirements can be easily met by including a cereal or soymilk fortified with B-12, or a B-12 supplement twice a week.
Step 1
Reduce or eliminate red meat, poultry and fish. Replace with health-supporting grain, legume and potato-based dishes. Or, start by giving yourself larger servings of rice, potatoes and vegetables at meals — and ever smaller portions of meat.
Step 2
Increase intake of calcium-rich vegetables — broccoli, kale, collards, mustard and turnip greens, bok choy, black beans, chick peas, calcium-processed tofu, calcium-fortified soymilk, calcium-fortified orange juice and blackstrap molasses. Choose more raw fruits and vegetables: cooking destroys nutrients. Try for 50% of your daily intake as uncooked foods and gradually increase the proportion. Buy organic.
Step 3
Reduce the “luxury” fats. Hydrogenated oils (like margarine) are artificially thickened vegetable oils that can damage your arteries and have been linked to some cancers. Gradually eliminate both butter and margarine from your diet. Reduce your use of cooking oils and oil-based salad dressings. Switch to nonfat (or low-fat) versions of prepared foods (and dairy products, if you still eat them). Read product labels. Replace eggs in baking with two tablespoons of water per egg — or try Ener-G egg substitute.
Step 4
Replace dairy products with non-dairy foods. Delicious milks, cheeses, and frozen desserts based on soy, rice, nuts and seeds are available in health food stores and many grocery stores.
Step 5
Reduce refined carbohydrates (white flour, white sugar, white rice, etc.) By choosing whole grain products and natural sweeteners (fruits, juices, maple syrup, etc.).
It’s easy – There is an endless supply of fabulous vegetarian recipes from many cultures. A wide variety of cookbooks are available in bookstores and health food stores. There are several lines of fast foods — pilafs, falafels, humus, “burgers,” “tofu-helpers,” etc. — for sale across the country. If you can’t find them in your store, ask your grocer to carry them — she or he is always looking for suggestions. Ask your favorite restaurant to serve vegan burgers, past dishes, etc.
Ideas for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Drinks and Snacks:

Breakfast

Cereal Lovers - Try hot or cold whole grain cereal or granola with soy milk and fruit. Use maple syrup or honey instead of sugar. Try apple juice on granola –
Bread Lovers - Try whole grain bread, toast, bagels, non-dairy muffins or specialty breads, with raisins or dates and nuts or seeds. Remember, even soy margarines have just as much fat as butter. Try apple butter, pure fruit jams, nut butters, humus or tahini on your bread or bagel.
Egg Lovers - Don’t knock scrambled tofu until you’ve tried it. There are easy mixes put out by several companies, as well as recipes in vegetarian cookbooks. Try sautéing cubed firm tofu with anything you would add to an omelet.
Other breakfasts - Treat yourself to waffles or pancakes made with soy milk — try using ½ banana in place of each egg — and smothered in fresh or hot cooked fruit. Make fruit smoothies with everything you can imagine. Use sweet fruit to make breakfast cobbler or pie and you won’t need to add sugar when baking.
Lunch or Dinner
Sandwiches - Whole grain breads, avocado, grated carrots, sprouts, lettuce, tomatoes and thinly sliced cucumbers make great sandwiches. Try nut butters with pure fruit jams or humus with crisp sliced vegetables. Vegetarian cookbooks have great recipes for spreads. Falafel is delicious.
Salads - Most vegetables can be served raw, chopped small or grated in salads. Cooked beans (garbanzos, kidney, black, lentils, etc.), sprouts, seeds, nuts and avocados are excellent. Try salad dressings with little or no oil and/or flavored vinegars. Stuff your salad into pita bread and add tahini to it.
Pasta - Try all those special pastas made with wholesome grains, vegetables and spices. Experiment with marinara, pesto and tomato basil sauces. Try sautéing garlic, onions, summer squash, red bell peppers and tomatoes in a little olive oil — or in a little sesame oil and tamari (soy sauce).
Burritos or Tacos - Try beans (black beans are great), rice or potatoes, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce or crisp shredded cabbage, salsa, soy cheese, etc. Use soft corn or whole wheat tortillas. Find your own favorite combinations. Nachos con todo (with everything) is a great fast meal.
Potatoes - Potatoes can be baked, steamed, mashed or home-fried. Try them with sauces, salsas, mustard, in soups or salads. Treat yourself to mushroom gravy. Remember yams and sweet potatoes.
Veggie or Tofu Burgers - There are many varieties in stores. They are delicious and easy to bake, fry, barbecue or microwave. Tofu hot dogs are almost indistinguishable from the original. Pile on the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard, tofu mayo and barbecue sauce.
Vegetables - Try stir-fried or steamed, served with brown rice, millet, barley or potatoes. Ad cubed firm tofu and tamari or mushroom gravy for a feast.
Pizza - Use whole wheat crust, tomato sauce, spices, soy cheese, and all your favorite trimmings. Try almonds, garlic, and fresh tomatoes.
Soups - Beans, lentils, nuts, veggies, grains, potatoes, tofu — anything is good in soup. Simmer your favorite vegetables for a few minutes and add a little miso for a quick treat. There are many brands of instant soups made with wholesome an delicious ingredients — just add boiling water, stir and wait.
Drinks and Snacks
Milks - Soy, rice, nut or seed milks are perfect substitutes for cow and goat milk. Carob, chocolate and vanilla versions are delicious. Watch out — some have added oils that make them just as high in fat as cow milk.
Juices - Many bottled organic juices are available all across the country. Look for local fresh-squeezed brands. Juice your own. Many vegetable juices are just as delicious as fruit juices. Be daring — carrot juice can be habit-forming.
Water and Tea - Add sliced lemons, limes, oranges or tangerines to fresh clean water. Try herbal iced teas and hot teas.
Snacks - Go for crispy foods like popcorn, pretzels, chips, fresh fruit, carrots, nuts, seeds and celery with almond butter. Enjoy cobblers and pies made from sweet fresh fruit, smoothies, non-dairy cookies and muffins, dried fruit, frozen fruit bars and non-dairy frozen desserts like Rice Dream and Tofutti. Avoid preservatives and buy organic.

Kantabole Kundalini Reiki

What Is KANTABOLE KUNDALINI REIKI?

Energetically KKR is cool, watery, and very versitile as well. How i found Kantabole Kundalini Reiki or how it found me.. Originally I was guided to record strange symbols and to change the name of what I had learned from traditional Reiki to something called Kantabole Kundalini Reiki. I
began my path as a healer in some form or fashion for about 11 years now, in this lifetime.

However, around 4 years ago I trained with a Traditional Reiki master teacher who initiated me into Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki too. Afterwards, received certification levels 1, 2 and level 3 in Karuna Reiki then a few years later, i was initiated as a Usui Reiki master.A bit Later i was initiated into Sekhem Seichim Reiki and continued to recall my history as a Shamanic healer as well.

As an initiated Kametic Priestess who came to earth to assist others in healing themselves and others, I’m a
guide here to assist in the process of bringing balance to this planet. Before I had any training with energy work, I remember having repeated visions of me showing others how to heal themselves with their hands, After I researched energy work overall and its many benefits decided I
would teach others this magical work when I was ok with my teaching abilities in this healing art. Soon after teaching Reiki and other classes, i began to meditate more and I incorporated Pranayam, Kundalini Yoga and Qi Gong into my regimen daily.

Not long after that I received incite on Kantabole. I figured the messages that came to me were from my Ancestral guides and must have come to me as a result of me cultivating a higher vibrational frequency in my body. When the messages came about this other ancient type of Reiki, I was completely ready for everything that came with knowledge of it. Kantabole has its origins in Kamit which is another name for what we call Egypt today. This type of energy work raises and generates kundalini fire very high during a session. Which offers a practicioner the option to significantly boost the Reiki sessions. For more information on Reiki Attunements or Energy work, please leave a comment. Thank you.

Hey Are You In the Vortex?

The Vortex of Manifestation

What a great lecture on The Law of Attraction. The first time viewed this video. I was inspired by the way the speaker spoke alone. Not only her speech but she spoke about the same lessons I learned from other teachers in my life. The only difference was the words used to convey the message about our unlimited potential. As the days pass there will be more on this. This video good. Take a look and tell us what do you think of it? Peace, Love and Bliss!

Lodalite

 

A Gazing Stone~

 

My second favorite Gemstone! Waiting until you read the next post. I will post my Favorite gemstone next!

 

Some know this lovely stone by other names. Here are some of its nicknames names: Landscape Quartz; Garden Quartz but its true name is Lodalite Quartz. This Quartz includes minerals such as chlorite, iron and calcite.

 

Here are a few more nicknames this stone is known as: “Seer Quartz” or “Shaman Quartz”. Because of all the sights to see inside of  Lodalite, it is often called Scenic Quartz! It’s often used in meditation practices. Another metaphysical use of lodolite is to bring energies to effect manifestation of one’s desires.

 

Lodalite Quartz is used to look into other worlds and by gazing into it, you are sure to feel a cosmic shift of consciousness.The gemstone is also useful for Shamanic journeying in particular and other journeying as well like: cosmic, soul and personal.

 

This stunning variation of quartz helps you connect to vibrational energies in other realms as well, stimulating growth in areas of other- worldly communication. This crystal is used to protect, for releasing and promoting understanding of one consciousness.

 

Lodalite can be used to stimulate healing of any disease or illness. Its function is to harmonize the higher vibrational energies of the person’s aura. It is believed that physical “dis-ease” is the consequence of “dis-harmony” within the energies of your body. This Quartz is also helpful in deep energetic healing, related to a past life too.

Heal Thyself

 

Transform, Relax, Rejuvenate!

 

Breathing deeper, eating healthier, drinking more water and just plain out doing whatever it takes to balance us out in our mind, body and energy field is an important task we should do to manifest more efficiently.

 

Personal healing for one person that may mean adding a new routine to their life, like choosing to do yoga 3 days a week. But for another it may mean completely easing back from running 6 miles a day to regain equilibrium in their body.

 

English: All Solutions By Yogi Tamby Chuckrava...

Some examples of healthy lifestyle transitions are: biking, roller blading, walking, reading, yoga (all types), writing, deep breathing, crocheting, knitting, mediation, healthy eating, getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals to name a few.

 

What do these things have to do with the law of attraction? They have everything to do with it, you have to feel good to keep attracting right? So it is important to identify ways which you can stay feeling radiant and flowing so that you can reap the full benefits all the time.
