EGG FAST DAY #1

Image
So I decided to try this egg fast to get into Keto one more time. Keto really does not work well with mel. All the dairy and break outs. This time organic all the way. I am going to sneak in greens for lunch. But here we go.

Egg Fast Menu Day 17:30am:  16 ounces coffee with 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp butter.  Put in the blender with a dash of cinnamon and a dash of pink himalayan salt. Blend until frothy.
My Morning Latte! Cooked my breakfast and made my lunch, both of which I carry to work with me in my insulated lunch bag. Note: Salt is extremely important on the egg fast!  Use it liberally!  I choose Pink Himalayan salt because it is abundant in minerals. 10:00am: 3 egg omelette with  2ounces cream cheese and a squirt of sriracha sauce, salt
Cream Cheese Omelette with Sriracha and pepper.  I used 1 tbsp butter for cooking in the pan. This is easily my favorite egg fast breakfast.   12:00N 1 cheese string with 1 tbsp mayo for dipping.

5 WAYS TO QUIT MAKING EVERYTHING SO DAMN HARD

Image
Life is hard enough. For many of us, life is pretty easy compared to what hard really means for some people. And honoring that is important. Because by acknowledging our good fortune, we can stop making life harder than it is, tougher than it has to be. We have to lighten up and let life be a little easier, so we can use our own energy on those who really have it hard—like damn fucking hard. It will allow us to give, to support, to show up. So what would it look like, like really look like, to let life flow? A river doesn't drive itself wild in order to move through a great frontier. It doesn't stab itself in the eyeballs in order to carve through cliff and rock. No, it just flows. Energetically. It goes. We can flow with life more, too. We can let it be easy, too. But we've got to quit a few of these things in order to summon the ease:
Decide. You can handle whatever your decide. There's no suc…

This B Vitamin Is Crucial To Good Skin, A Healthy Gut & Balanced Blood Sugar

Your body is a well-oiled machine. Without proper maintenance and fuel, machines begin to slowly break down, and problems start to arise. An adequate well-rounded amount of nutrients are to your body like oil is to a machine. B vitamins in particular play a crucial role in helping your body function optimally. Many delicate, intricate pathways like methylation—your body’s biochemical superhighway, a process that happens more than 1 billion times every single second—are fueled by B vitamins. It is responsible for helping you to detox, helping to decrease an inflammatory response, and in turn, avoiding a lot of autoimmune-inflammationbrain, and hormone problems. They also help to aid your body in breaking down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates for energy production. What a lot of people don’t realize, however, is that unlike vitamin C or vitamin D, there are many types of B vitamins that each play their own important role in maintaining how your body functions. In particular, vitamin…
