  • Self Worth vs Net Worth

    Posted on January 31, 2015 by Wendy

    Great article about how we tie #self-worth to #net-worth.

    The wages that we earn provide for our lives, but they do not define our lives.

  • Switch Tips

    Posted on January 15, 2015 by Wendy

    A lot of people are asking me this month, "What can they do to make healthier food choices?" and "How Can They Lose those extra pounds from the holidays"? Chapter 16 in my book Fabulous, Fit & Fantastic Living, "Get To Your Natural State of Weight" shares some excellent Switch Tips of things you can begin to do differently. I am not a big believer in the word "diet" and I think if you start to make better choices that are simple and easy to follow you will lose those extra pounds and get to your "natural state of weight"

    Outside of the pH recipes I have shared with you this year here are just some simple ingredients you can switch to create a healthier and more pH-balanced lifestyle.

    Switch the regular breakfast habits of cereal and milk, toast and jam, home fries and bacon to something alkaline. Try having salad for breakfast. I know it sounds odd; however, I tried it a few times and it is delightful. We are conditioned to thinking salad is for lunch and dinner only. You can even try a veggie wrap, or some vegetable juice. Your body will love you.

    Switch your hot processed boxed cereal to buckwheat cereal and use almond milk instead. This is very filling and easy to make. Cream of buckwheat is available at most health food stores.

    Switch regular pasta noodles to soba noodles.

    Switch white rice to brown rice, or basmati rice.

    Switch in between meal snacks to cucumber, celery, red, yellow or orange bell peppers, with hummus, instead of candy or chips. Try sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon. Also try dehydrated kale chips, sweet potato chips, veggie crunch sticks. This will satisfy your need for crunch.

    Switch your pop/soda to lemon/lime flavored water.

    Switch your peanut butter to organic peanut butter and also try almond butter.

    Switch your table salt to Celtic Sea Salt.

    Switch your white vinegar to apple cider vinegar.

    Switch your potatoes to sweet potatoes/yams.

    Switch corn to root vegetables, parsnips, beets, carrots and squash.

    Switch MSG and salty spices to natural cinnamon, ginger, oregano, parsley, cilantro, basil and fresh garlic.

    Switch dried fruit to fresh fruit.

    Switch cashews and pistachios to pumpkins seeds and raw sunflower seeds.

    Switch processed chocolate to raw organic cacao chocolate.

    Switch your coffee from cream and sugar to black.

    I hope this helps you with some healthier choices

    Remember to always Be Fabulous

    Luv Wendy

  • Your Reflection

    Posted on January 3, 2015 by Wendy

    So the common question this weeks is "What's Your New Years Resolution?

    It sure seems like the most popular New Year's Resolution is to lose weight.
    Nothing is new from generation to generation. Everywhere I look, whether it's on social media, TV, or a newspaper, there is an ad for something to lose weight and be "Skinny" for the New Year.
    Get "Skinny" quick companies and gyms make a fortune in the first 3 months of a New Year.
    The sad thing is for the people who invest in this "Get Skinny" gimmick are left sometimes even more disappointed than when they began. There is no "Get Skinny" program. There is only "Get Healthy" program.
    This is a lifestyle change, not a couple months change.

    Yes, I agree, it's a place to start, and Yes, I agree some people do have excellent progress, however statistics say less than 10% of people continue after their first month and less than 5% after the second month.

    Stop being so hard on yourself. Yes, the holidays are a time when people over indulge however,
    sometimes it's more of an emotional eating holiday than a realistic eating holiday.
    Stop to take a look at your eating habits, what you eat and when you eat it so you understand yourself better. Making a chart of what you eat helps a lot.

    I believe people put way too much pressure on themselves when they look in the mirror.
    Eating healthy is a daily commitment to yourself, a long term goal.
    Learn what foods make you feel good and simply focus on a more alkaline, pH diet.
    You will get to your "natural state of weight" with no diets.

    I can help you with…

    Healing your body as you go through the pH process
    Adapting your body to look and feel good as you get older
    Educating you on how to become healthier from within
    Saving time by shopping right. Staying away from processed foods.
    No filler foods!
    Eating nutritional foods so you stay fuller. No empty calories!
    Learning how not to be an emotional eater
    Finding the right diet plan and how to eat pH balanced meals

    Did you know?

    Cancer and disease don’t survive in an alkaline body!

    I can help you learn the advantages of maintaining health with proper pH balancing.
    Learn how disease don’t stay in an alkaline body
    Get rid of aches and pains
    Save $ by not buying the wrong foods
    Follow a healthier lifestyle

    Take Advantage of my pH Balanced Diet for A Happier Tomorrow!
