Raise your vibration with rose petal juice

IMG_2674
Did you know that, at a rate of 320Hz, roses vibrate at the highest frequency of all known plants? I believe this is why they are so nice to be around. They are commonly revered as the “alpha flower” much the same way that lions are regarded as the king of the jungle. When someone gives you roses, you know they are trying to convey a message of deep significance. I am one lucky gal because my boyfriend gives me roses all the time. I’ve seen rose petals in gourmet salads, but until this morning, had never eaten any myself.

Here is a good explanation of how Prana, or life force energy, is expressed as an electromagnetic vibrational frequency. The frequency of a healthy body ranges anywhere from 62 to 68Hz with a frequency lower than 50Hz increasing your risk for cancer. So, it makes sense that we would want to do all that we can to keep our vibration rate high. I do this primarily by meditation, keeping my my thoughts positive, and of course by consuming  Prana-rich foods.

After Valentine’s Day, many ladies or couples will probably have leftover roses and rose petals.  Why not consider including them in your green juice or smoothie? Remember to bless them and thank them for their life-giving energy!

Today’s winter juice recipe

IMG_2227.JPG
The weather is turning colder and my body is calling for the deeper colors of nutrient-dense purples and greens instead of the bright oranges and yellows of summer fruits.

I juiced the kale leaves and pear then poured that into my blender with the grapes, kiwi and coconut water.

Winter juice:
1 bunch kale
Handful of red grapes
1 red pear
1 kiwi
8oz or so of coconut water

Voilà!

My favorite green smoothie

IMG_2062.JPG
This is so unbelievably delicious. It’s pure food alchemy too, because although it’s vegan, it’s creamy almost like Greek yogurt or a milkshake. Mmm. Without further ado, here’s the skinny. (Hehe…see what I did there?)

Gather the following:

Handful of spring greens
Handful of cilantro
1/2 peeled cucumber
1/2 peeled green apple
1/2 avocado
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp raw almond butter
8oz unsweetened almond or hemp milk

1. Toss all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pat yourself on the back for making a meal that’s both delicious AND jam-packed with nutrients then go about your day making equally awesometastic decisions!

Xoxo,

Golden Milk – to fight inflammation, illness, depression and more

IMG_2240.JPG
Golden milk is a favorite yogic beverage. It’s made with turmeric, which has numerous health benefits, particularly as an anti-inflammatory.
Its’s great for your joints, your liver and immune system, and even helps with depression.

Recipe:

1/8 tsp turmeric powder
Pinch of black pepper
1/4 filtered water

Simmer 5 min then add:
1 cup of almond or hemp milk
2 tbsp almond or coconut oil
Bring to just under boiling (do not boil!)
Serve warm and if, desired add honey for sweetness.

Black pepper increases the bioavailability of turmeric, so our body can absorb all of it’s wonderful properties so don’t leave this out! This drink is very calming and is especially good at bedtime. 💤
