For me, we have just entered the season of Thanks & Giving.  Thanksgiving is officially over, but the holiday season has swung into full gear.  While we can give and give thanks all year round, this time of year makes it easier to be in the Flow.

We have ample opportunities to share our thanks and gratitude for this world and one another, as well as give both from our hearts and pocketbooks.  

In the spirit of Joy, giving, and simply Yummy Food, here are some stellar, nourishing, and heart-warming recipes from our friends at Delicious Living Magazine (both on and offline in your favorite natural foods store).

Pumpkin Pie with Walnut Crust

This delicious, press-in crust has a sandy texture similar to a graham cracker crust. To prevent it from getting soggy, store pie at room temperature instead of refrigerating. It will keep well for two days at room temperature; five days refrigerated. Ingredient tip: Be sure your spices are fresh for maximum flavor. Serving tip: The orange-scented, tofu-and-yogurt topping nicely balances the sweet pie; but you can indulge in whipped cream, of course.

High-quality, real food and supplements offered by the natural foods industry changed my life.   I am very sensitive to artificial ingredients, GMO’s, fillers, and low-quality ingredients (did you know if you are sensitive to something, it can create inflammation in the body – a big no-no!).

When I developed chronic fatigue, I turned to the natural foods industry to seek answers.   I began working in the supplements department of a natural foods store, and taking high-quality supplements (I’ve tried hundreds of them to find which ones work for me), and by learning how to eat well, I improved my energy levels and well-being significantly.  You can read more about my  journey here and in my book, The Memory of Health (see link below).

I cannot take prescription drugs, so for me, having access to high-quality supplements was a game-changer. 

In my quest for answers to my health challenges and well-being, I became a Conscious Consumer. 

I take them every day, and they make a BIG difference in the quality of my life and well-being.  I discuss supplements in great detail in my book, The Memory of Health.

Keep your energy flowing all day long with these natural tips and strategies from Delicious Living and Hero Nutritionals: http://goo.gl/GZ2cHP

There are different reasons people have fatigue and need more energy.  You might need more energy from burning the candle at both ends, also known as burnout.

For others, fatigue or chronic fatigue, may stem from an underlying chronic condition such as M.E., CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, Lupus, RA, Hypothyroidism, or even from having gone through radiation or chemotherapy.

Whatever your reasons are for needing more energy, here are some tips to improve your QI (pronounced “chi”) levels, fighting brain fog, and getting into the zone and in FLOW

energyheroinfo1000

First, to fight brain fog, consider these tips.  Note: brain fog can have different causes, such as hormonal imbalance, being low in B Vitamins or viable protein, or from chronic inflammation.

Try eating foods rich in B Vitamins such as organic avocados and Hawaiian Spirulina capsules.  This is one of the quickest and easier ways to possibly reduce brain fog and help to improve your natural energy levels as well.

B Vitamins are associated with energy, and help your body convert food to energy.  Very important to know!

Secondly, for brain fog, consider what you might be sensitive to in terms of food or irritants.  Irritants can cause chronic inflammation in your body, and guess what chronic inflammation is associated with?  Fatigue…

To reduce brain fog due to chronic inflammation, consider herbs such as extra strength turmeric and Gingko, and supplements such as DMAE and real-food vitamins.  Note: when buying supplements, do your research, and go for quality and traceability.  Be a #consciousconsumer and #votewithyourpocketbook (it’s one of the best ways to affect real change).

Shop at stores (both online and offline) that have values such as quality, traceability, and sustainability.   Know what you’re buying and to which companies you are giving your patronage and hard-earned money.  

Secondly, to raise your QI/CHI, consider eating organic and, again, consider what you may be sensitive to in terms of foods and the environment.  Also, try mind-body fitness such as yoga, Tai Chi, and Qi-Gong, to keep your body, mind, and spirit in balance.

Consider the foods you eat, and consider the timing and combination of foods as well, in order to keep your energy levels high and in balance.  Click on the infographic in this post to enlarge it and read the great tips in it!

For over 4,000 years, Ayurvedic healers have turned to turmeric—a bright orange root—for its myriad health-boosting properties. From helping to support healthy joints and ease digestion to boosting energy and even managing wounds, Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine practitioners have long turned to turmeric to purify the body and help promote a thriving system. What’s the key? Turmeric’s active ingredient: curcumin.

Today, naturopathic physicians and herbalists are more commonly recommending curcumin to support a healthy inflammation response. Topically, it can be applied to wounds, bruises, and muscle strains to ease pain … and its antioxidant properties mean it’s a great immune-booster and anti-ager.

I happen to love using turmeric to keep my liver running well and to fight inflammation. It also makes a great spice!
