I can’t tell you how much of a book worm I am. I seriously have my nose in a book at all times, that my family often wonders why? Im so glad my kids take after me in that aspect! Well I have to tell you that one of the most recent books I’m reading( yes I’m always reading more that one), is the Retox .. Yoga, food, attitude ) , by the amazing Lauren Imparato.. Love her! I have to tell you that this book has changed my life. She has lived through it all, and yoga literally has changed my life! She is the founder of I.AM.YOU. Her daily rituals has literally changed the way I live my life. I incorporate all of her rituals into my daily life , and I love it. This is my second round of reading her book , because I love it so much.
One thing I have to say, is life is short. We all want to feel at the top of our game, at ALL times. This book does just that. If you are having issues with food allergies, stress, anxiety, sugar overload, caffeine fixes, fatigue, .. Whatever… You name it.. She has the cure. I love it, because Lauren Imparato, who at one time was working on Wall Street, really figured out what she wanted out of life, and here she is writing to the world about her ups and downs ( yes including the 2008 crash) , how she turned her world upside up , with all these amazing tips and pointers. I have to admit , I’m addicted to this book! She honestly has the cure for improving your days , and nights through yoga. Yoga is amazing, and has honestly changed my life! If I was to tell you a book to read… THIS IS IT! I never was a meat eater, but after reading this book, I have really tried to incorporate some real beef into my diet atleast twice a week, and wow has it changed my life! Making sure you are eating grass fed – organic beef of course, this is the book! So excited to get my yoga license in the next year , when my life calms down a bit! You all need to read this!!
One of my favorite healthy dishes is the red pepper spinach salad. This salad is so cleansing and delicious, I eat this on a regular basis due to how healthy it is. You can have your choice of dressings, but I usually just stick with a bit of olive oil and vinegar. It can be topped off with some veggie mozzarella shreds, but I usually skip that. You can also add walnuts or almonds which just add a bit more flavor to this wonderful salad!
-1.5 cups of spinach leaves
-5 small broccoli stems
-1 red pepper sliced & diced
-1/2 red onion diced
Top with mozzarella and walnuts if preferred, then use olive oil and vinegar.

Do you ever want to transition your diet to a more raw foods diet, but don’t know how?? Well here are a few pointers on how to make that transition:
– start with breakfast. Make a smoothie with fresh veggies and fruit. It’s easier to start with the first meal of the day.
– switch up your recipes on a weekly basis. Don’t make the same one every day because it will get boring.
– start with your favorite fruits or veggies in your smoothie.
– once you have a smoothie 3-5 days a week for breakfast. Start adding raw foods to your snacks. You will eventually add up the raw foods in your diet. This will clear your skin and improve your digestion. Everything takes time. Take one meal a day at a time and work your way up!
