If you have been watching the news lately, it can be a bit unnerving with all of the events going on worldwide. From Ebola, Iraq, Syria, to the big events unfolding with Ukraine, NATO and Russia. To earth events such as flooding, fires and more, to GMO's, chemtrails, fluoride, vaccines, nanites, oil spills and contaminated air we face a lot of threats today as a species. Not only physically but mentally too. It can be a lot to bear hearing the "woes" cry out from the earth. I feel down some-days, other days I'm guilty of sticking my head in the sand in effort to feel better, other days I'm on fire about learning. I take it in waves and try to maintain some sort of balance in these times and include as many peaceful and happy moments as possible.
Time with my husband, walks, yoga, meditation, zen music, eating healthy -
getting out in nature, reading, writing, painting, taking baths, giving and receiving structural integration, taking elixirs and supplements are a few of my favorite things. Daily quotes from sites like Bob Proctor and Tut - Notes From The Universe are always nice for a daily shot of love and inspiration. Actions like showing love, helping others, continuing to move forward and reaching for my dreams until the last second tend to keep me uplifted.
After catching up the news with my husband, I turned on Zen Meditation Music and zoned in on making a delicious meal for us.
I wanted vibrant chakra infused colors for the ultimate cleansing meal. With beans, rice, asparagus and a variety of fresh vegetables this plate is a complete and nutritious meal for two packed with 30 grams of protein!
Eating healthy is easy when it looks this good!
I left the salt out and opted for more lime and pepper after reading about fluoride in salt!
I shared this on Facebook earlier:
Fluoride. I knew it was in the toothpaste and water but fluoride is in the salt too? That means packaged goods, table salt, bread and so on can be poisoned. "Intentionally fluoridated salt usually contains about 250 ppm fluoride, which results in a daily intake of 2.5 mg of fluoride per day for people consuming 10 grams of salt." This will make me think twice about sprinkling some of extra salt on top and eating out. Sources are even saying "“Himalayan” salt is actually from one of the world’s largest salt mines in Pakistan and contains 231mg (231ppm) fluoride – naturally!"
Another source states: "“Universal” salt fluoridation means that all salt destined for human consumption is fluoridated - not just the “salt in the shaker on the table”. This situation exists in numerous cantons in Switzerland, as well as many countries in South America." Read more here: http://poisonfluoride.com/pfpc/html/salt_facts.html
That same site lists food that contains fluoride, this is a bit unnerving as I enjoy many of these foods as I'm sure you do too! http://poisonfluoride.com/pfpc/html/f-_in_food.html
I want to continue researching this but thought I'd share what I had found so far. "The More You Know"
- They do sell a Fluoride Tester! We recently purchased a Berkey Filter as well. Anything can help!
While it was a salt free meal the flavors were so good I didn't miss it at all!
How do you make it?
Wholesome. Delicious. Colorful. Food!
After learning about flouride and other toxins I found a great article on 14 Ways to Cleanse the Body from Chemtrails, GMOS, Flouridated Water, and other Environmental Toxins
Stating "Our Blood and Bones Contain Over 85,000 Different Toxins" thankfully there are inexpensive ways to cleanse the bowels, hair, skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, and even the cells.
How can you detox your body? I picked some of my favorites from this article.
Here are some personal things I've done over the years. It has now been over a year since I've used nail polish (although I just discovered vegan nailpolish and hope to try it), years since I bought non-vegan make-up and most days I don't wear any, 4 years since I've colored my hair, years since I've bought conventional face wash (we use baking soda and it works wonders!), bought scented lotions - we use coconut oil or other oils, wear perfume - I use essential oils. I even stopped buying tampax once I realized the toxins within and started to use the Diva Cup. We dry our clothes outside but if you don't and use dryer sheets consider a brand with out animal-fat, like this one! I'm sure I have areas to improve but as I learn about the toxins being poured into us I do my best to make mindful decisions moving forward.
We enjoyed a hike out in nature the other day. The flowers and trees provided purified air, it helped us get in touch with the Creator of All, provided an easy way to meditate, and we worked up a good sweat clearing our body and mind of toxins! We followed up with a foot soak with hot/warm water, salts, herbs and essential oils. Epsom salts are great. We put everything in a bucket with a towel underneath and let our feet soak. It is an easy way to pull toxins from your body in a short amount of time. Soaking can ease stress, reduce inflammation, flush toxins, boost magnesium intake and are helpful when congested / during illness. So soak up!
I hope you enjoy the Zen Chakra Salad as much as we did! No oils, salts, gluten or dairy! Yay!
