So I made this amazing slushie this morning, and it gave me an immediate energy boost ...and tastes SO GOOD ...so I had to share. It's an excellent anti-inflammatory. It's also great for the lymphatic system, the digestive system, along with immune support. It's super simple. I added one half organic lemon (*with* peel), a little over an inch piece of fresh organic ginger root (peeled), 1 scoop of @drinksufficientc high- dose, vitamin C mix (sugar free), and ice. Threw in my Ninja and blended. 🖒 YUM. Great way to start the day!
And yes, I realize slushies might not be popular in the winter time, but try it anyway. Hmmm...I think I could add a splash of vodka and call it a "healthy cocktail" in the summertime. #immunesupport #antiinflammatory #antiviral #lymphaticsystem #digestion #stayhealthy #gains #lymphnodes #organicfood #functionalmedicine #foodismedicine #highdosevitaminC
Currently reading the book 'A Course in Miracles' and I absolutely LOVE this paragraph. Fear will steal your dreams. Every single time. That is why you must always stay true to yourself. Ignore the doubters, the naysayers, the ones that call you "crazy" or "unrealistic" for having such "big dreams". You cannot follow the advice or opinions of the fearful, because they are going nowhere; and they will keep you confined within their own limited beliefs. You cannot lead somebody to a place you cannot even bring yourself to. You are a powerful being. There are no limits as to how far you can go in this lifetime. You get to choose. Everything you have ever wanted is sitting right on the other side of fear. Go get it! ☇ #acourseinmiracles #fearisaliar #success #nolimits #faith #truth #positivethinking #youleadyourownway #gratitude #entrepreneur #leaders #Believe #motivation
Love this! Everything you will ever need comes from WITHIN YOU. All else is just icing on the cake! Don't become dependant on other people or things for your wellbeing and happiness, for that will only make you a prisoner. Choose freedom...you deserve it!

Low-carbin' it can taste sooo good. Turkey breast topped with heirloom tomatoes, avocado, homemade #sauerkraut (#probiotic powerhouse), and a heaping spoonful of @sirkensingtons Special Sauce. If you have not tried this special sauce yet, you are missing out. It's the BEST.

Yup. You have to hold yourself accountable for your part, learn from it, decide to do things differently, then move the heck on. Onward and upward! Not many really want to do this part though (myself included).....it's much easier to blame it all on somebody else. It's just soooooo comfortable there. #change #lifelessons
Solar infused cayenne oil. Going on 8 weeks now. This stuff is truly AMAZING. Cayenne is famous for reducing many types of pain. It works by affecting your nervous system. Substance P is a neurotransmitter that relays information and results in what we call pain. Capsaicin, a major constituent of cayenne peppers, blocks substance P and therefore reduces pain. It also works by de-sensitizing sensory receptors in your skin.
When cayenne is used topically (like in a salve, which I will be making) it can relieve many different types of pain, from diabetic neuropathy, shingles, migraine headaches, back aches, arthritis and more. #herbalmedicine #capsaicin #cayenne #painrelief #herbalsalve #foodismedicine #functionalmedicine #plantmedicine #naturalhealth #healing #pepperpower
I can honestly say, if I was given the chance for a do- over, there is not one thing (in my entire life) that I would ever change. I never imagined I could feel that way, but here I am. Every moment of my life (both good and bad) brought me to exactly where I am today; and for that I am truly grateful. I love who I have become...and who I'm becoming.
I know it's not always easy to understand, but every moment of your life (good and bad) is actually molding you into the best version of yourself (which allows you to better serve others..which is why we are here)... IF you allow it. Don't try to fight whatever it is you are going through...instead, look inside to see the lessons being offered to you, and grow through it. It's all a state of mind. You can choose to look at every circumstance as either a blessing or a curse. Both will give you completely different results. One offers extended misery, one offers happiness. You choose! #gratitude #perception #mindset #positivethinking #growth #goodvibes

Made a big batch of this gut- healing, golden elixir...aka #bonebroth. Simmered on low for approximately 48 hours. Bone broth is a rich source of bioavailable nutrients, in an easy-to-digest form, that supports the immune system. It contains healing compounds like collagen and gelatin, trace minerals, it's also rich in protein and amino acids such as glutamine, glycine and proline. The amino acid structure, along with collagen and gelatin in bone broth soothes and heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation. Which also enhances the absorption of nutrients from food as well.
Collagen helps strengthen and restore the cartilage around our joints. Research done by the Department of Nutrition and Sports Nutrition for Athletics at Penn State University found that when athletes supplemented with collagen over the course of 24 weeks, the majority showed significant improvements in joint comfort and a decrease in factors that negatively impacted athletic performance.
Collagen/ gelatin is also very nourishing to skin, hair and nails.

There is a big difference between connection and attachment, although many feel it's one in the same. One will keep you a prisoner, one will keep you free. Attachment is fear-based. Fear is controlling, dependant, and insecure...it stems from a feeling of "lack of". When you attach yourself to a person, thing, or situation, you depend on these outside sources/situations for your feeling of fulfillment, happiness, worthiness, feeling of acceptance..etc. Through attachment, you also tend to only accept how you feel things "should be" without allowing any other possibilities. You basically give up your inner power and put it in the hands of everything that is outside of your control. How dysfunctional, right? If you really look at what it is you are "attaching" yourself to, you will notice that it is usually always something that you are lacking within. And no matter how hard you try, that void or feeling of "lack of" can never be fulfilled by outside sources. You can become more aware of this when you constantly feel unsatisfied (and exhausted), even after you find or acquire everything you "think you need". Attachment in this sense, only leads to constant suffering. Only YOU can fill that void through awareness, acceptance and inner healing....ultimately self love.
Connection, without attachment, is different. You connect with the world around you knowing and feeling that you are always enough. You are always whole, and need nothing to "complete you", as you are already complete. You embrace self love, know your self worth and have a true sense if independence....because your happiness is not dependant on anybody but yourself; and you know this. You have so much more to give! You are already fulfilled inside, so you can look at people, things, circumstances with acceptance for whatever it is, because your well being isn't attached to it. You will never allow yourself to be a "victim of circumstance" because your well-being always comes from within, and you CHOOSE to suffer or to slay. FYI- slaying is much more satisfying. You will appreciate the experience of it ALL, without any expectations, which is so freeing. cont'd in comment below
