Amazing Vegan Frozen Pizza

I recently watched the movie “The Game Changers” on Netflix. It’s about becoming a Vegan. I decided that I would try being a Vegan for a while just to … let’s say clean out my blood vessels. It’s almost like a cleanse and I don’t know how long I will do it…but I’ve been a Vegan for a month. I have to say that I feel better than ever and aches and pains are no longer a problem. I’m eating super healthy… no animal products at all.. but one of my hardest things to not eat is cheese… especially when it comes to Pizza. …And although I can make it from scratch I thought I would try to look for a frozen pizza that was Vegan for times when I really don’t feel like cooking. I went to my local groceries and found pretty much nothing that was Vegan in the frozen pizza aisle. There were many pizzas that were gluten free and dairy free, but none of them were only dairy-free or Vegan. I went to Whole Foods and finally found something that looked like it might be worth trying. After making this pizza from American Flatbread, called Vegan Harvest, I am sure that it is my favorite Pizza like product in the frozen food aisle. Unlike other pizzas the directions recommend that you defrost the pizza for 30 minutes while the oven heats up. During that time I diced and sautéed a small onion and a half of a diced red sweet pepper. I also tossed in a 1/4 of a cup of chopped baby spinach. I sauteed the onion and pepper until almost done in threw the spinach the last minute or two. I topped the pizza with the mixture. Then I cooked it for the allotted time. This flatbread/Pizza was amazing and I highly recommended it. The Vegan cheese was excellent. It will be on my menu at least once a week!

The Best CBD Oils Reviewed (part 2)

Waking up with no lower back pain after sleeping all night is amazing. This is the 2nd review of The Best CBD Oils. I will be discussing my experience with JOY Organics CBD OIL, Premium Hemp Salve and Softgels. I am continuing my quest to determine the Best CBD Oil products and sharing this info with you.

JOY Organics was started by a Woman named Joy Smith who became interested in developing a line of these products after her great success in dealing with a severely strained shoulder muscle and insomnia related to the pain and discomfort. Their products are all Organic which is very important in choosing a CBD Product. I purchased a Bottle of CBD Oil called Joy Organics Premium Hemp Tincture made with phytocannabinoid- rich oil. It comes in several flavors and I bought Lemon. It tastes very mild but contains 500 mg per ounce of Hemp Extract, 15 mg per serving of Hemp Extract and 16.67 mg of CBD per serving with 30 servings per bottle. They also sell higher levels of CBD, up to 1500 mg in a bottle. They have a sample pack that costs $7 that contains a very small container of Premium Hemp Salve, 2 pkts of 2-25mg softgels (NonVegan) and a CBD Energy Drink.

The Soft gels come in 10 mg and 25 mg strength and they are 2x more absorbable than a standard tincture oil. That means you’d have to take 2 times more of other CBD oil based products to get the same absorption.

So, I started to test them on night #1 to see if would help with my lower back pain at night and my insomnia. I took a serving of the Lemon flavor Premium Hemp Tincture (CBD oil). It helped me relax and fall asleep easily. I woke up about 4 hours later with some lower back pain. I decided to try the Premium Hemp Salve. It worked well and I went back to sleep. The next morning, I woke up with no back pain for the first time in a year. I was excited about that!

On night #2 I took a dropper full of the Premium Hemp Tincture and one of the softgels and put a little Premium Hemp Salve on my lower back. I slept longer through the night without waking up and woke up with no back pain.

I decided to share this information with you all this morning.

The shipping was very fast and Free. Their products contain no THC, no gluten, broad spectrum, no harsh chemicals and every batch is tested for quality. They also have a money back guarantee.

Other really cool products include CBD Pet Products,  Skincare, Energy Drinks, Vape Pens, and Gummies.

The Best CBD Oils Reviewed

First of all you may wonder why you would want to use CBD oil. CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of the primary natural cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. This is an amazing natural chemical which helps our body deal with chronic Pain, Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Inflammation. CBD has been used for certain Seizure Disorders for some time and the FDA has approved a prescription version of CBD for this use. CBD is also used to help people deal with the side effects of Cancer treatment, such as nausea and vomiting. Ongoing research is currently being done on CBD. This research on CBD is related to protecting brain function, Alzheimer’s disease, reducing inflammation, Heart health, treatment for acne, PTSD, dealing with addictions and more. There’s a lot of talk about CBD Oil and why you need to start using it. And when you go to buy it either locally or online you realize that there are a ton of brands. It’s really hard to know what is best. There are in fact several things to consider when you choose. In this Blog series I am going to review several companies and their CBD oils that I have tried and will give you honest feedback. I use CBD oil for joint pain, anxiety and to help me sleep. I am very passionate about CBD because it works! In fact, I take it at bedtime and start yawning almost before I get back to bed. I am hopeful that it helps with all inflammation because inflammation is a problem for most of us as we age. There are so many products out there and so many prices that I decided to start reviewing them and share with you my actual results. When you buy CBD oil there are many things to consider. Often, cheaper is not better… You need to buy Organic and see that it has been tested for Quality. Also there are varying concentrations of CBD in products and some have additives. Others have Essential Oils added to them for flavor and they may not be Organic or they could be made with additives or fillers. My plan is to test as many CBD Oils as I can and rate them based to actual use. The first oil that I tested was Natures Ultra CBD Oil naturesultra.com. I purchased 2 bottles before it was affiliated with Young Living. I would say that I loved the product. I bought the CBD Oil with Citrus Essential Oils and Stevia added to it. And I am happy to say that it did exactly what I needed… especially with sleep, anxiety and also lower back pain. I loved the Citrus taste and Stevia made it taste good. At that time the bottle’s instruction was to put 1 ml under your tongue, up to 3 servings a day. Now that they are affiliated with Young Living it says topical use only. I believe that it is the same product and I find that a bit confusing because Young Living has Oils that are approved to use internally. I will have to say that I absolutely loved the product but hated the dropper bottles. They were hard to open. I wrote to them and they said they were working on it. The product is made with Young Living Essential Oils, which are the best and the CBD oil is Organic and made with care. If you are a member of Young Living then you get wholesale price which is $10 off $99 or $89. You have to have a wholesale acct with Young Living to get that discount. If you want to join Young Living you can get a wholesale acct for $45 by purchasing a Basic Starter Kit, which includes a bottle of Stress Away Essential Oil. Stress Away was how I got started with Young Living. I love it! Inhaling Stress Away helps with Stress and Sleep…. and with a Basic Starter Kit you also get 24% off of all products at YoungLiving.com, and a couple of samples of Ningxia Red antioxidant Drink. Young Living does have the best Essential Oils in the world and their products go by European standards which means that over 1500 toxic chemicals are not used in their products. YoungLiving.com has all sorts of Health and Wellness, Bath and Body products and Makeup. This means less Toxins in your Life.

Next month I will be reviewing Joy Organic CBD Oil. I’m going to try the 500 ml CBD oil with lemon…and their $7 samples of CBD soft gels and salve. I will let you know what I think… The products are Organic and they do testing for purity and strength. Please use the link above to check it out sooner. If you buy something, I get a small referral fee which helps my retirement fund. But this does not affect my reviews. 🙂

I hope to review a different company each month. and I will let you know what I honestly think.

If you decide to check out NaturesUltra.com and need to join Young Living please use my member number for enroller and sponsor ID 3056729 Again, it helps my retirement fund… and I love almost all Young Living Products. 🙂

Take care of your DNA with Positive Thoughts!

You can Improve every part of your Life with your Thoughts! Or you can destroy your Life with your thoughts. It’s important to remember that you have the power to create the Physical and Emotional Health that you desire by paying attention to your Thoughts. Your Thoughts are very powerful! I have always believed that you can change your Life by becoming aware of your thoughts, embracing Positive Thoughts and letting go of the Negative ones. And although it is true that you can’t control everything that happens to you, you can control your reaction to it. And that has an impact on your Health and Well Being.

Recently I have been reading a Book by Dr Caroline Leaf called “Switch on your Brain” and I wanted to share with you some of the information that I thought was fascinating.
The Book refers to the Mind Body Connection and how our thoughts directly affect our Physical Well Being.

~ Research shows that 75-98% of mental , physical and behavioral health comes from one’s thought life.
~ DNA actually changes shape according to our thoughts.
~ Research* shows that thinking and feeling anger, fear and frustration caused DNA to change shape.
~ Due to our thoughts and feelings the DNA responded by tightening up and becoming shorter, and switching off DNA codes which reduced the Quality of Expression.

“Quality of Expression” means how well our DNA does what it’s supposed to do and relates to which genes are turned on and off and how they well they work. All of that, in part, depends on our thoughts… So when we say we feel shut down by Negative Emotions it kind of makes sense.

~ Negative Thoughts lead to Stress which affects the Body’s ability to Heal itself.
~ This can all be reversed by Positive Thoughts of Love, Joy and Gratitude.Becoming aware of our Negative Thoughts is the first step. When you become aware of a Negative Thought, ask yourself if you can let go of it or reframe it. Sometimes looking for the Positive in any situation helps. Remembering things that you cause you to feel gratitude can also help you change that Negative pattern of thinking. It’s very important to notice when you are engaging in Negative Self Talk or holding onto Negative feelings. Just tell yourself to “Stop” and think of something that makes you happy or engage in Positive Self Talk…whether you believe it 100% or not. Positive Self Talk can be something simple like thinking ” Everything is OK, everything is Fine.” or ” I am thankful for all of my Blessings.” Positive Self Talk is very Powerful! And remember that giving Negative Energy to any situation, never helps and it can make you sick in both Mind and Body.

This also relates to messages that we give to ourselves… like…” I’m not very Sensuous.” Thinking of yourself as a Sensuous Person is all it takes to begin to change that mindset…

For other Sensuous Thoughts and Daily Sensuous Activities… refer to my Book ” Be Your Own Sensuous Life Coach” available from Amazon.com

And remember … your DNA needs your support !

Mindful Forest Breathing

Mindful Forest Breathing… Forest Breathing is all about being Mindful and being out in Nature. You don’t have to have a Forest to do this… Just go outside and find some green space away from the noise and hubbub of everyday life. You will feel more connected and more Sensuous when you stay in touch with Mother Nature. This is a 5 minute exercise for when you only have a few minutes to spare but remember that minutes add up and 5 minutes done regularly adds up.

 

Mindful Meditation –  A 5-Minute Meditation Practice for Forest Breathing

 

Find a comfortable place to Sit.

Close your eyes, and rest your open hands, palms up, on your knees.

 

Minute 1: Deep Breathing.

Begin by Following your Breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.  Inhale for the count of 4, then Exhale to the count of 6.  Become aware of how your body feels as you sit there with your eyes closed.

 

Minute 2:  Find your Natural Breath . . .

Stop Counting and feel the Pace of your Natural Breath . . . feel your Body Rising and Falling.  Become aware of how your body feels as you sit there being Still.  This is Mindful Breathing . . . becoming fully aware of your Breath as it moves in and out of your Body.

 

Minute 3: Continue Mindful Breathing being fully aware of your Breath.

If thoughts come, just look at them, and then imagine them floating down a river, or put them on a cloud and watch them gently float away.

 

Minute 4: Slowly stop Focusing on your Awareness of your Breath and just be Still.

There is nothing that you have to do.

 

Minute 5: Reorient yourself to your surroundings.

Adopt an attitude of Mindful Gratitude. Think about something that you are grateful for. Open your Eyes, and carry this peacefulness along with you today.

 

Forest Breathing for 20 minutes.

You can go through the steps of Mindful Meditation. You can stay in each phase as long as you wish. Deep Breathing in the Forest increases the Oxygen in your Body, so be sure to do that phase a bit longer than 1 minute if you can.  The Trees and Plants are creating Oxygen for us, and we give them Carbon Dioxide. It’s a really beautiful arrangement. Feel gratitude for the Trees, and Feel their Gratitude towards you.  I believe that the Trees are out there being still, breathing and meditating . . . we can learn from them. Find a place in the woods and begin.

Sensuous Guilt Free Dessert!

So last night I wanted to make a dessert that was guilt-free so I took some plain Greek yogurt and added some stevia extract and Young Living Orange Essential Oil to make it sweet put it in a bowl and added fresh blueberries and dried cranberries, in the few nuts and some dark chocolate. When I was eating it I felt like I was having berries and Orange  whipped cream and chocolate which was very Sensuous! Orange essential oils is also great for the hormones you need to Google it.

Amazing Vegetarian Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup!

img_20170119_130101792_hdr.jpgBeing a Vegetarian I still occasionally miss certain things that I used to enjoy…like Chicken Noodle Soup. And, lately I’ve been experimenting with going Gluten Free. So Chicken Noodle Soup seemed to be something that was out of the question… Until now… I decided to make it happen. I made Vegetarian Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup that was amazing!

Here is how I did it. I used Quorn Chik’n Tenders, Jovial Gluten Free Spaghetti and Pacific Brand Vegetarian Chicken Broth. I added sautéed onions and shitake mushrooms and a diced potato and a little poultry seasoning.  And I created the best Vegetarian Chicken Noodle Soup… Here is the recipe. Great with a little Udi’s Gluten Free Bread toasted and topped with butter.Please share with friends and tell them where you got the  recipe!

1 onion sliced and sauteed with olive oil for 3-4 minutes

Add half a bag  Quorn Chik’n nuggets and Saute till slightly cooked and then cut each piece in half.

Add a handful of Shitake mushrooms Cook  2 more minutes (be sure to remove the tough stems)

Dice a small potato

Pour Vegetarian Chicken Broth into a saucepan and add the above ingredients.

Add 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning and a little salt and pepper.Cook for 20 minutes .

Grab a very, very small handful of spaghetti. About the size of quarter round. Break spaghetti into 1 inch pieces and throw into soup. Cook 15 more minutes. Remember that the spaghetti will swell so you don’t want too much… And you are done! Enjoy!

Palo Santo and Nutmeg

Sensuous Essential Oils for supporting Healthy Joints.

Living life Passionately is what it’s all about… and taking care of our bodies is the key to a Long and happy Life. In my quest to keep my body Happy,Healthy and Sensuous I rely on many things. And when I find something amazing I feel compelled to let you all know about it.  I love to share my latest discoveries to help each one of you feel more Vibrant, Sexy and Sensuous every day!

One of the things that I learned later in life is that our joints are very important to being able to do everything we want to do… and they really need all the support they can get. One of the ways I support healthy joint function is with Essential Oils. Studying Essential Oils and experimenting with them is my latest Passion. So on that note… I want to share some information about my new favorite Essential Oils, Palo Santo and Nutmeg.

I cannot tell you that Essential Oils will cure anything and I suggest that you do your own research to decide what is best for you. But…I have been reading an interesting Book called “Essential Oils Pocket Reference” by Life Science and here are a few interesting things that I read.

 I find this information fascinating. I use Palo Santo and Nutmeg and love both of them. I believe that they support healthy joint function which is very important for me.

From the Book “Essential Oils Pocket Reference” by Life Science

Palo Santo:  “Palo Santo comes from the same botanical family as Frankincense, Palo Santo is known as a spiritual oil, with a deep rooted tradition in which it was used by the Incas to purify and cleanse the air of negative energies and for good luck. It is used in South America to repel mosquitos…”

“Uses: Inflammation, Regrowth of knee cartilage, joints, rheumatism, gout, respiratory problems, reduces airborne contaminants when diffused.”

If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Should not be used for children under 18 months old.

 

Nutmeg: “Nutmeg a source of myristicin, has been researched for it’s anti-inflammatory effects in several studies. It works by inhibiting pro-inflammatory prostaglandins when taken internally or applied topically”.

“Uses: Rheumatism/arthritis, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, hepatitis, ulcers, digestive disorders, antiparasitic, nerve pain, fatigue/exhaustion, neuropathy”.

I also use a Rollerball that is made with 10-15 drops each of Frankincense, Peppermint and Copiaba which are in the Premium Starter Kit

 

The Premium Starter  Kit is $160 and includes a cool diffuser  and 11 oils …and then you get 24% off all Young Living orders…forever. . YoungLiving.com  And if you don’t know anyone who sells Young Living Oils use my Sponsor/Enroller ID# 3056729
