Last week, my husband Joe and I attended UPW, a four day seminar with Tony Robbins. We prepared and packed everything we needed for food, but some things worked, and some didn’t. This is a follow up to last week’s article. If you are traveling and have a cooler or fridge in a hotel room, this is certainly a meal plan I highly recommend. I was satiated and my taste buds did not crave anything more with these tasty meals.
The first time I attended this event in 2011, I felt like someone had beaten the crap out of me by the first day. By the fourth day, I was feeling like roadkill. It’s a few days after the event now, and I feel like a million bucks. …
Top 10 Sensual Foods
These are 10 superfoods that I like to keep stocked in my kitchen, as they are proven to ignite the senses, summon sensuality and provide the body with optimal nourishment.
- Raw Cacao
- Raw Almonds
- Goji Berries
Things to remember: all of these delicious foods are more potent and higher quality when grown organic. Organic farming promotes ideal soil conditions. By purchasing organic, you are voting with your dollars and asking for more nutrient rich soil and in turn, optimal nourishment for you and future generations! If possible, also have these powerful foods fresh, and raw.
Now for the good stuff. Let’s chat about the number one sensual food.
On Sundays I feel passionate romance in a very bright, public setting. Fresh aroma of sweet fruits and organic, local fare, smiling faces and sun shining. Mmmm how I love the FARMER’S MARKET! My husband and I love going to the Sunday Farmer’s Market! Don’t worry…If you’re living somewhere with snowy winters, you can always re-create the vibe in the produce section! As we walk-feeling the warm embrace of the sun, we slowly scan the offerings and let the vibrant colors draw us in closer. Joe will pick up a tomato, and make eye contact with me before he gives the delicate plump fruit a smooch! He loves to kiss his food-have I mentioned this before?! We walk hand in hand, in gratitude that these incredible people are sharing such gifts!…
After an unsuspectingly profound FLASH MOB meditation this morning, I went to a restaurant in downtown Palo Alto with a few of the meditators (the organizers appropriately switched the word “mob” for satsang: “flash satsang meditation”). As we sat down, and food arrived, my friend asked if I’d like to share as her plate had arrived too full for her appetite. I politely declined as she extended the offer to the rest of the table. It was clear that I’d passed on the food, and my friend went on to share, “She’s so healthy! She had broccoli for breakfast!” In fact, I did have broccoli with hemp oil drizzled on top with a few pumpkin seeds-for some fun crunch 🙂 for breakfast.…
My first post!
Let me first thank you for reading. I’m twenty-seven years old and I am so excited to share what I’ve devoted nearly half of my life to…food! Yes! I know that you’ve spent countless wonderful years with food too 🙂 We all eat. Most of us eat 3-5 times a day! We’re all experts on eating, right? It’s true. We all know what makes us feel good and what our taste buds love. What you may or may not know, is that what you choose to put in your mouth can make you feel even better, have even more energy and even better health… I’m fascinated by what makes you thrive!
This past month, November of 2013, I attended the Experts Industry Association Annual Conference.…
