Opening your pelvis can actually relieve stress! Just sit on a flat surface (the floor, your bed) with your knees pulled in and the soles of your feet facing each other. Now release those hips and let the knees fall open. Don’t force it, just relax for sixty seconds. Every time you do this you improve your mobility, your balance, your core strength and your attitude!
It’s not just about the pesticides. Organic plant and animal foods are required to be grown:
- With crop rotation for more fertile soil which enhances nutrient content (and flavor)
- With sustainable water practices that help the planet and discourage harmful bacteria
- With natural fertilizers, pest control and feed, reducing toxins in the environment and in your body
- Without GMO’s, Steroids, Hormones or Antibiotics
Just like great, great grandma used to eat!
Then don’t! Do something fun instead. Tend your garden, dance around the house, go for a neighborhood stroll, play catch with the kids, walk the dog, go shopping, meander through a craft faire, attend a home and garden show. Just get off the couch and do something!!
Whether you pronounce it “queen-a”, or “quin-oh-a” or the foodie approved “keen-wa”… you need to try it. It’s a great side dish in place of bread, rice or potatoes with a ton more protein, fiber and essential nutrients. Just follow the directions on the package.
(Quinoa has a natural protective coating that could taste bitter, so don’t forget to rinse!)
