Healthy Fats – Fighting the Food Stereotype

Healthy Fats – Fighting the Food Stereotype

by in Moving & Eating.

This is a guest post from Amanda Roberts Fat is basically a curse word in the dieting industry. The simple thinking behind: ‘fats will make me fat’, is understandable, but wholly inaccurate. Fats are an essential macronutrient and dietary guidelines say that we should get 25-35% of our daily calories from fats. The worst part of this is due to fat’s demonized status, people feel better about eating food high in refined carbs and sugars instead, which is arguably much worse for you. It’s time to change your opinions on fat and investigate the science behind why we should be restoring healthy fats to the position of “superfood”. What Is …

Masters of perspective

A plate of spaghetti Can be noodles in a bowl. Or can be noodles which grew out of someone’s labor, hard work, calluses hands, bruised knees and sweat, their hopes and dreams for themselves and their loved ones, the soil and rainfall and sunlight which is constantly effected by our living and breathing, by global warming, over farming, and acid rain. Then there is those who shipped the wheat, who milled it, who drove the trucks up and down the coast with soar backs, the grocers, the market employees who got it out for us, the car or public transport we rode in.

Our life and our love has to be done with everything we are.

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Everything. What is everything? Does it include thought? Personally, I think not. I think as long as we are stuck in our heads, our truest nature will never come to the surface. Only without thought, without story, then, only then, can we become the flower, the mountain, the stars, each other, ourselves. Only then can we be present. Only then have we arrived.   Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine. Set your stories free here!

Hidden Life

Everything Is Filtered

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I have a public life I have a private life And then I have a “public private life.” Few of us confess, “I poured immense time & energy into this post.” Our lives become a kind of performance. As we visit a beautiful place and consider the social capital of our Instagram post vs someone else from that very same place, because yes, we know they are doing a JR considering the same thing. Can a moment belong to me in a more profound way? If I share a picture of myself eating pie, have a I actually robbed myself of enjoying the pie in real time? Can I walk …

Hidden Life

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Dare I say the one not on social media. The one at home, alone, bored, confused. The hidden life matters just as much, if not more than the highly curated, and carefully chosen “public” life displayed online. The hidden life matters more, far more. It’s not only the grand things that matter. The normal, unhistoric, without fanfare, the moments most of us are currently living right now matter just as much.

Every strawberry represents a humans calluses hands

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Strawberries were too delicate to be picked by machine. The perfectly ripe ones bruised at even too heavy a human touch. It hit her then that every strawberry she had ever eaten—every piece of fruit—had been picked by calloused human hands. Every piece of toast with jelly represented someone’s knees, someone’s aching back and hips, someone with a bandanna on her wrist to wipe away the sweat. Why had no one told her about this before? – Alison Luterman   Relearn and transform your stories into powerful medicine. Set your stories free here!

The Gift Of Life

The Gift Of Life

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

The Buddha said, “the gift of food is the gift of life.” With 900 million people hungry… Let me be food. Let me walk into the world knowing, I am food. Not simply food for thought, but nourishment, actual nourishment. I am food that upholds and supports you in all you practice, refuses to abandon you in the truth of suffering. I am food that replenishes and repairs. What greater prayer/goal/mantra/dedication is there then to be food and nourishment for a hungry world? I am food. I am food.

Everything After “What If” Is By Nature, Pure Imagination

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

​What if I lose my job? What if my marriage fails? What if my health fails? What if I don’t have enough money? What if I don’t enough time? What if she or he doesn’t like me? What if I make a fool of myself? The thing is, everything after “what if” is by nature, pure imagination. And because it is imagination, it means it can be changed and we have a choice. You can imagine something different. You can make some better, happier, healthier, more exciting stuff up; as opposed to the same ol’ – all the stuff you don’t want. What if you were OK? What if it …
