Love, Balance and Healthy Food as an Elevator
Your health and wellness tips:
1. Eat Berries With Breakfast
Berries are an incredible food, rich in nutrients for our brain, our digestion, and they’re disease-preventative. They’re also a fresh source of produce and keep us fuller than processed cereals with dried fruits. Add 1/2 cup of your choice frozen or fresh berries to either a smoothie, oatmeal, or just have some with some unsweetened coconut yogurt and a little chia or flax seeds. Berries are also a great source of vitamin C to kickstart your immune system.
2. Eat One Green Food Per Day
Eating one green vegetable per day or one leafy green is a great way to get yourself healthier in the kitchen without much thought. It can be a cup of broccoli at dinner or spinach snuck into a smoothie. A cup of green beans at dinner or some leafy kale tossed with chopped sweet potato and some simple seasonings. Anything counts, just make sure it’s green, natural, and from the earth. These foods provide us with more nutrition than any food out there. They alkalize our bodies, promote mental wellness, and protect us from major forms of disease.
3. Drink a Glass of Water When You Wake Up
A new health practice that many observe, drinking water is essential to hydrating your body first thing in the day after a night long fast.

Fermented foods like homemade yogurt, kefir, kombucha, pickles, sauerkraut, and other veggies are higher in nutrients and many contain Vitamin K2 which is important for your body. They optimize your immune system and help with detox. They replace the good bacteria in your gut. And fermented foods are much cheaper than buying supplements. Tune in to find out how and why fermented foods can help you. Side note, one of my great uncles was a medical doctor, he always made sauerkraut for Thanksgiving - to help.
