New Year 2019 !!!

Happy New Year, all! I love a new year. A time to shake off the negativity and move forward with the many things I learned the year prior.

Each year, I feel like I grow to embrace change more. It’s not something I naturally do..perhaps because I moved 7 times

growing up! Learning to “surf the waves of life” is so EMPOWERING!! In 2019, I will continue to strive to stay calm in the midst of storms.

Prayer, meditation and yoga are key for me. I just enrolled in Annie Carpenter’s online training through YogaGlo. I will integrate this with my home practice and my one on training with my amazing yoga teacher at Divine Center of Yoga in Southlake, Texas. I have been doing private and group classes there for 9 years.

I look forward to teaching classes soon! I’m elated to begin this journey-step by step!

I pray each of you have a new year filed with joy, amazing health & that it’s filled with whatever fuels your souls!

Kevin’s Perfect Salmon Recipe

Screen Shot 2018-09-07 at 7.32.29 AM
*Use Wild Caught Salmon
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Cut filets into 5-8 oz each (or have your fishmonger do it for you). Rub both sides of filets with olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper. Place filets on baking sheet. Turn broiler on high. Place baking sheet on second rack and cook for 7-10 minutes depending on thickness and desired cooking preference (Med rare, Med, well done, etc). Remove fish from oven when the filet has a bit of a crust to it. Remove filet from baking sheet and discard skin and grey flesh under skin if desired. Squeeze a slice of lemon on top if desired. Enjoy!!

Easy Bone Broth Recipe

Bone-Broth-3-2

Take most or all of the meat off an organic roasted chicken you bake or rotisserie chicken preferably from Central Market or Whole Foods (I like these best because they are in a bag not plastic). Place bones in a crock pot. Cover bones completely with filtered water and add about 2 more inches of water. Add sea salt, pepper, 2 stalks of celery, a carrot (no need to peel), 1/2 an onion, a clove of garlic, and whatever spice you want—you can also add cilantro or parsley–and add 1 T of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. Cook on low for 24 hours in a crock pot or 120 minutes in an Instapot. Strain. Use broth for a soup base or to drink. It will keep for 3-4 days. You can freeze it as well.
You can add sautéed vegetable such as: carrots, celery, squash, zuchini—and then add the baked chicken. Garnish w parsley or cilantro.

EPSOM SALT BATHS & MAGNESIUM SPRAY

Achey?  Sore Muscles? Bloated? Trouble Sleeping?Headaches?Restless?Constipated?Feeling off? There is a very simple remedy to help with these issues! Epsom salts and/or Magnesium Spray! They are an amazing, simple, and inexpensive way to help with these issues. They contain the all powerful magnesium that is so utterly important for all of our bodies functions as well.

Depending on the size of your bath tub, you can use anywhere from 3-4 cups of epsom salts. You want the water to be comfortably very warm-hot. Not so hot where you would not want to relax for twenty minutes in it! You can add different essential oils-I prefer lavender at night for it’s natural calming properties.

You can also add 1/2 c. of aluminum free baking soda for a detox as well.

As far as the spray, feel free to reach out to me for my favorite brands..most suggest anywhere from 10-50 sprays a day. Start lower and increase your dose. Magnesium is a natural constipation reliever, so you don’t necessarily want to take so much that you are running to the restroom:)

Also keep in mind if you take a multivitamin or magnesium supplement that they all work together.

I recently had a tension headache for several days, and I used a combination of baths,spray and a magnesium supplement to get rid of it.

I hope this info helps you to be well! Xo
