Take the 7 Day Green Juice Challenge! Melt Fat and Feel Good.

 

The Powerhouse Juice that Rocks Your Body and Health

No wonder why this has literally saved me during my last 2 pregnancies (1 is still going!).  Helping me prevent/treat Charlie Horses, Varicose Veins, Low Energy, Mood Swings, and is a key ingredient in keeping this pregger only gaining Healthy Pregger Weight!  It’s been my saving grace through Post-Partum Depression/Anxiety as well as easing the daily stresses that come along with MommyHood.  Can you say, totally worth it?  Totally! 

Why it works!

The Feel Good Power of the “Golden Green,” Kale, Apple, Lemon Juice

It’s power packed with energy/mood boosting Vitamins A, C, E, K, B1, and B2; body balancing minerals magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, and potassium (Has more Calcium per gram compared to Whole Milk! Say, “Sayonara” mucus causing milk, and hello to super green goodness!)  To top it all off, it’s fully loaded with Immune Boosting Antioxidants like beta carotene, flavonoids, quercetin, lutein and zeaxanthin.  Can you say cancer fighter?  Absolutely!             

Health Benefits

Weight/Fat Loss:  Cleansing, nourishing, stress reducing!  You name it, this juice does it.  Beats the bloat, improves digestion, helps regulate blood sugar, and melts the fat away!

Cancer Fighter:  Contains indole-3-carbinol, which boosts the health of DNA and also lowers the growth of cancer cells.  Try standing up to this healthy, power habit, cancer!

Boost Skin Health:  Beauty in a bottle!  Vitamins A, C, E, and K and phytonutrients, improve our skin’s elasticity, firmness, bring back that youthful glow, and keep it healthy. Ta dah!

Helps Keep Blood Sugar in Check: Especially when Prego!  This is one of my Mommy-To-Be must haves to make sure you pass that ever dreaded Glucose Test at 24 weeks, and helps prevent Preeclampsia.  Bonus!  Not to mention it just helps a Pregger feel good! 

Boost Brain Power:  Helps keep blood sugar in check, and reduces brain fog (yes, even Pregger Brain!).

Builds Strong Bones:   Awesome source of calcium to increase bone density, or simply just for building normal healthy bones. Good for the Kiddos too?  Yes!  Get them in on the Green Juice fun!

Gently Cleanses:  There’s nothing harsh about this, “Nature’s Broom” concoction.  It gently cleanses your overworked, underpaid liver without the need to run to the potty! When your liver is clean and happy, you’re sure to reap all the feel good benefits.

Blood Booster:   Chlorophyll and Vitamins E and K make your blood healthier, flow better, and more oxygenated, which brings with it lots of healthy, feel good benefits to every cell your blood touches.  Also helps with those unsightly Spider and Varicose Veins.  Sign me up!  The chlorophyll molecules are closest to human’s hemoglobin molecules, making it one of the best juices for people who are anemic too.

Puts out the Inflammation Fire:  Awesome for alkalizing that burning acid wash your cells have been bathing in making you feel like “Ka Ka.”  Put out the fire, and help put out those nagging symptoms. Can help with Autoimmune conditions too.

Muscles:  Helps improve your muscles’ recovery and regeneration.  Awesome way to boost your workout benefits!

See Better:  Carotenoids (zeaxanthin and lutein) help protect our eyes against ultraviolet lights, and defends the retina against free radicals.  Cheers to good eyesight! 

Need I say more?   Drink 1 of these babies down every day, and feel the good!

To Doula or Not to Doula

A First Time Mom-To-Be asked this question today in my PreNatal Yoga class.

Personally, I've had both experiences (1 birth with, 1 without, and third will be sans doula too). I didn't have a positive experience with my doula. I had a 14+ hr. labor that went from 7pm to 9:30am, and she refused to come until I was getting ready to push so she could “save her energy.” Really! My whole reason for paying good money for a doula was to help me get through the labor best I could minus the meds. She showed up after I started pushing, and long after I already begged for and received the epidural. Needless to say, I was not a happy Mama, and the whole doula thing only added stress and frustration to an already challenging labor experience!   On the flip side, I've heard lots of great things about other doulas. So, explore, feel it out, and go with your gut! Just remember to ask the doulas you interview when she will show up for Labor and Delivery, and what her role will be when she gets there. I also learned that the nurses at the hospital I delivered at (shout out to Paoli Hospital L & D Nurses) Rocked, and were like doulas anyway. Ask around about your hospital's L & D nurses, and feel out whether you should Doula or not.

Why Do the Doula

Surviving Sugar Shock from My Pregnancy Glucose Test and Better Options to Avoid It

I just survived another sugar shock episode from my pregger glucose test. Thank God it was only very blurred vision, some jitters, and then followed by a violent bout of a bowel clean out 2 hours after the test! Last time I broke out in hives, felt like I drank 10 Red Bulls, had blurred vision, and took two whole days to get myself back to neutral. My body totally freaked out!  I prepped better this time (with my plan below), but this totally made me think this happening two pregnancies in a row just isn’t right.  This obviously can’t be good for me and my baby!  So, what’s a pregger to do? 

I shared my glucose pregger test nightmare with my gal pals, and one of my pregger friends chimed in with a “Help a Mommy Out” comment that said, "She was shocked my OB made me do this!"  She said her OB offered an Organic OJ as a healthy, better option.  What! I had a choice?  I could've saved me and my baby from the chaotic shock this test puts my body through! Why wouldn’t all OBs get on board with this better for Mom, better for Baby option? I felt both pissed and inspired to dig in a little deeper to help other Moms-to-be avoid the negative effects of this ever so dreaded test.  

Talk About Sleeping Baby. Sleep Deprived Moms Want to Know!

New Moms, Moms who’ve been around the block a few times with the babes, and every Mom in between wants to know, “How do I get my baby to Sleep?!”

We’ll try anything to attain that holy grail of sleeping baby. It’s the hot topic of Mom conversations everywhere, and one that I’m asking myself as I prep for baby #3.  So, what’s your secret to sleeping baby success?  Sleep deprived, desperate Moms want to know.

I always try to remember that the most important thing here is the health and wellbeing of me, my baby, and my family, so whatever works to accomplish this, I think is all good and priceless.  You and your hubbs (significant other) have to be on the same page too.  You’re a team.  If one of you isn’t buying in to the plan, the plan won’t work.  And, remember plans change!  We’re getting to know our babies, and understanding how they behave and respond to different things.  So, be consistent with your efforts, and very open to the change-up plan when it’s needed.  I always give it 3 straight days of consistent effort to see if what I’m doing is working, or needs a revamp. 

5 Easy Ways to Get Your Kids to Eat Healthier Foods

There’s a Halloween Hangover going on in my house!  My kids are drunk off candy, and I’m scurrying to find any and all outlets, including the trashcan, to dump that crazy, laced loot somewhere other than spread out all over my living room floor.  Now, I’m all about getting my treat on, and allowing my kids to do the same, but I can’t have candy mania running up in my house lingering right into the Holiday sugar rush.  My kids, and me will go nuts!  It’s time to get our Healthy On.  I’m bringin’ healthy back to our home!  Here’s how.

5 Easy Ways to Bring Healthy Back to Your Home

My 17 month old is driving me insane! What I’m doing to bring back the peace and calm to my heart and my home.

I just can’t seem to get it right with this kid!  What’s a Mom to do when her baby is out of control with biting, hitting, and way too bull headed and independent behavior for his less than 2 yr. existence on this Earth?  What do I do when I painfully, and often tearfully realize the child I want to scream at, smack (which we don’t do), and just walk away from is exactly like me, or at least how I used to be before I took myself on my own self-help journey to a slightly more calm existence.  Emphasizing the slightly. I’m still working on it!

I knew the day I heard there were going to be two Taurus, the Bulls (me and my baby) in my house, there were going to be some challenges.  I literally feel like I’ve been butting heads with my baby since day one from the breast feeding debacle to now.  I don’t know if my Mom ever wished I’d have a child just like me to give me a dose of my own medicine, but if she did, wish granted!  It’s to the point where I find myself having anxiety about the anticipation of how he’s going to act in any given moment, and how I’m going to deal with it, because so far, I’m striking out big time!  

3 Tricks to Get Your Kids to Drink Green Juice. And, Like It! Plus 3 Awesome Green Juice Recipes!

Boogies, snots, and tummy bugs, oh my!  Summer just ended yesterday, and it’s starting already.  Cold and Flu come early.  Not for your kiddos!  Get your arsenal ready, and gear up those Immune Systems Mom!  Getting your little ones to drink green juice even 3-4 times/week can help boost the immune system big time.  We’re talking antioxidants, super, alkalizing foods, and all kinds of keep you healthy and happy goodies stuffed into these beveys.  So, how in the world do you get your kids to chug one of these swampy looking concoctions?  Here are the 3 tricks I use to get my 4 and 16 mo. olds asking for their own green juice.  Well, my 16 mo. old just makes all kinds of excited sounds and hand gestures that say, “Gimme Some Green Juice Please,” and he chugs it down.  This is hands down, one of the best things you can share with your kiddos to boost their healthy and happy.  So, let’s get our green on!

Be Leaner and Lighter by Tomorrow Morning. Seriously!

3 Simple Steps to Looking and Feeling Leaner and Lighter by Tomorrow Morning

***You only have to do these things 5 days/week to work!  The other 2 days are “Free Be’s” to keep you from going crazy neurotic thinking you have to be perfect to look and feel good!***

It seriously only takes 1 day for you to feel a difference.  This has been a God send for me since I found out I tested positive for a genetic abnormality where basically my cells suck at doing their jobs, especially when it comes to protein, carb, and fat metabolism.   Really, every one of them could use turbo boosters!  I’ll go in to more about this later.  But, this plus the way I work out (only 4 days/week, 1 being yoga for 30 minutes or less), has kept my body feeling and looking the best it can be as I work on getting that gene thing straightened out. My clients are loving it too!  Try it, and see for yourself!
