Family Holiday Survival Guide: 5 Healthy Solutions Every Mom Needs Know


by Helen Rose, Raw Food Chef & Family Health Advocate

This time of year can be particularly challenging to maintain a healthy life for you and your family.  All the activities, the shopping, the eating, and the travel can lead to unhappy unhealthy holidays, not at all what we want.   I’ve pulled together my top solutions for staying healthy during the holidays.

1.                  Eat Healthy Foods before you go to a party or holiday gathering.  How often do we rush out the door to make it to the party and are starving when we get there.  Worse your family is starving when they get there and once you get talking to your mom, your aunt or sister your children are seeking off to the cookie table eating sugar cookies or M&Ms.  So schedule to eat before you go. Feed your family the healthy foods you have at home, because you do not know what will be at the party. Still don't have time.... you have time for a smoothie with chia seeds and plant-based protein powder to fill you and your family up before you go.  In addition, I always bring a dish or two that I know my family can eat and we are sharing health with others.

2.                  Stay away from the Sugar.  It's been called a poison, a drug and a toxin, and scientists have started blaming it for everything from obesity to heart disease to diabetes. Sugar is toxic to the body.  Yes, I said toxic and it is the 1st way your body gets weakened to let illness into your body.  Lots of studies are confirming that sugar is highly additive, so once you start eating sugar you are on a slippery sloop, a downward spiral, of sugar addition for you and your family.  Yes the holiday are  full of sugar cookies, pies, candies, and all things sweet.  1) Don't make them, or make less sweet alternatives if you must.  Try using stevia, Natural Zing agave nectar, Natural Zing dates, or Natural Zing coconut sugar as sugar alternatives in your recipes. 2) Fill up on veggies and low sugar foods before you are temped to eat the additive sugar foods. If you are afraid Aunt Margaret is going to cry if you don't eat her cookies then simply say your doctor told your family not to eat sweet foods.   “The Doctor Said” is like the golden seal of approval for people of a certain generation.  It works and do not feel guilty about using it.  Whose going to be nursing your family through another round of the flu you or Aunt Margaret?

3.                  Get Rest.  I know this time of year especially for parents is busier than ever.  How can you fit it all in to your schedule....most mom's do what seems to make sense... sleep less...stay up late to fit all the shopping, food prep, bills, volunteer projects, work, ...  Life does not stop for a mom unless you are sick in bed and can't move.   That's my point.  Mom's tend to get 4 to 8 hours of sleep a night.  Six hours of sleep a night is not unusual for a mom, so if you are cutting into that already low level of sleep, then you are really weakening your immune system.  Maybe the laundry doesn't get folded so fast this week.  Maybe you can get the kids to help you more around the house ...after all Santa is watching.

4.                  Health on the go!  As much as we try and plan, we'll be out shopping, at school events, office events, on planes, and you'll be caught without a healthy option.  Be prepared.  Have some healthy snacks in your purse, bag, office draw, or car.  Wherever you are you can have a healthy trail mix, bag of nuts, a healthy bar, or a bag of dried fruit ready to eat and present to your children when they start getting hungry.  

5.                  Boost your Immune System Now!!!  You know that you are going to be around people that are not following the above advice and will be spreading viruses, colds, and sore throats because they don't want to miss this year's gathering.  Don't wait until you are starting to feel sick.  Start boosting your family's immune system now.  It's not hard.  My Super Immune Boosting Secrets: Stock up on Natural Zing's camu camu berry powder, this berry has 920% of the daily value of Vitamin C in 1 teaspoon – incredible!!! You can slip this into smoothies or orange juice. Chinese medicine reverse mushrooms like reishi, cordyceps, shiitake for boosting the immune system.   I have a blend of 12 immune boosting mushrooms called STR 12 it is considered the ultimate in boosting the immune system.  I mix this in hot chocolate and smoothies.  My kids love it, so it is not hard to hide the taste.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wishing you abundant health,
Helen Rose

Enjoying the Holidays with Food Sensitivities


by Helen Rose, Raw Food Chef & Owner of Superfoods on Main

It can be daunting to think of all the food pushed at you during the holidays, enticing you to take at least a bite. However, you know what will happen if you indulge; the cramping, the bloating and then just plain discomfort for the next 24 hours to name just a few of the possible symptoms.  That’s no way to spend the holiday season when all you want to do is enjoy the food and the company.  Whether or not you have sensitivities to gluten, eggs, or dairy you can avoid the discomfort and enjoy holiday dishes.  Here are five ways to enjoy the holidays, even if you have food sensitivities.



BYOF (Bring Your Own Food). Offer to bring safe food so that you know there will be something there that you or your children can eat and your host doesn’t have to worry about separate food preparations.   Included in the article are two recipes that are dairy-free and gluten-free.  If you want to learn more recipes attend a workshop on how to create gluten-free and dairy-free “Holiday Recipes”.  



Inform your host.  It is polite to inform the host of your special dietary needs so they are aware.   This does not mean they have to make special food for you and your family, but sometimes there can be easy substitutions that the hostess is willing to make. If you're hosting a party, seek a caterer that is knowledgeable in food sensitivities to include a try or two of vegan and gluten-free foods.  
 

Start the trend. Include an ingredient listing card with your food contribution to the party.  If you are hosting, keep all labels from the food you prepare in case one of your guests has a food allergy as well. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness at a party and with friends.


The rules. Go over “the rules” for parties with your kids in the car so that the most important safety rules, such as not eating a food unless he or she has checked with you first, will be fresh in their minds when you arrive.


Order ahead. Still not sure or do not have time, order meals ahead that meet your dietary needs from a cafe that is knowledgeable in food sensitivities.

By preparing ahead of time, you can enjoy your holiday, share awesome delicious recipes with others and have a healthy holiday by boosting your health with delicious and healthy foods that meet your dietary needs.  Happy Holidays!

What do I do now?



Be the change you want to see in the world. What does that mean? Firstly it means vote with your dollars. Secondly, find your passions and live your passions. Do things everyday that bring you passion. Energy goes where emotion flows. Start with what makes you happy. Put your energy into your happiness. If you truly don't know what to do please contact me and I will help you decide and work towards your passions.

 

Voting with your dollars means refraining from spending on products, services or food you believe are inferior. Buy your best for yourself and family. If you buy a Big Mac, you are voting for more Big Macs. If you buy organic whole food ingredients and cook a meal from scratch, at home, with your family you are voting for healthy families. If you believe schools can be better, donate or volunteer at your local school. Bring your energy and light to what you believe in. Support charities that support your goals. Every time you buy something it is a vote. Yes I know some things it seems we have no choice but often you do have a choice and there can be a better choice.

Let your passion drive your activities. If you want the world to be healthier, get healthy. Eat healthy clean organic vegan food, exercise 3 to 7 days per week. Be physically active. If you want more love in the world, give more love to friends, family and strangers without expecting any in return. If you want more trees, plant trees.

What does the world need and how can I bring that into my life? Ask yourself that question and your spirit will provide answers. Pray and meditate for more clarity. Take a walk in nature. Lay on the beach. HIIT the trails.

In 2000, after 10 years of being a Software Engineer for various corporations I started to prepare my departure from the corporate world. Firstly, I got healthy. I started eating a strictly plant-based diet and exercising at least 3 times per week. In 2001, I left my corporate job as I was approaching 6 figures and I continued my health quest. I learned years earlier that when I feel down or depressed the best thing to do is take care of myself. Go for a hike, trail run, or go biking, eat a salad and take a calming bath. Focusing on myself and my growth always brought a renewed inspirations and drive. I explored various talents during 2001 – 2002, lost about 35 pounds, produced a few musical products and compositions. Finally, after losing about 35 pounds I decided to pursue a long held passion for plant-based food. I want to eat the best food ever. I started Natural Zing to bring the best quality plant-based food to the market. Coinciding with a birth in the raw food movement we started sourcing highest quality superfoods, fruits, nuts and cacao direct from farms in the US, Peru and Ecuador. We created a Retail site www.NaturalZing.com and also began selling to stores and manufacturers. Today most of our business is direct to stores however we have many loyal retail consumers that demand quality, purity and transparency. All of our foods are vegan, many are raw and 95% of them are organic. We specialize in vegan, organic whole plant-based foods. Our blog has many recipes that can help you get healthier and feel more energy. We are blessed and grateful for all the support of our customers. Thank you.

We all reach crossroads in our lives. Let your spirit guide you. If you are down or depressed use my trick. Eat healthy, be healthy. Start your journey today. When would NOW be a good time? The vegan diet is a well proven diet that can quickly help you feel better. Exercise has dozens of proven benefits including energy, focus and building self esteem and mindset. Diet and exercise combine is the best choice you can make to begin moving towards your passion and happiness. Remember, 80% of dis-ease is lifestyle choices. Take control, start today. Eat 10 of our Organic Ecuadorian Cacao Beans and you will never be the same. I invite you to try our great products.

If you truly don't know what to do or have reached a stuck point in your personal growth or business please contact me. Lets break through together.

Peace, love and joy,

Ingredients:

CHEESE
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (1 Tbsp or 6 g)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder, plus more to taste
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 lemons, juiced with a handheld citrus juicer
  • 3/4 cup  water
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
FOR SERVING
  • 2 Tbsp (8 g) finely minced fresh herbs 
Instructions:

Place cashews in a bowl and cover with cool water. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator to soak for 12 hours. Once soaked, drain cashews thoroughly and add to food processor. Add minced garlic, garlic powder, lemon zest, lemon juice, water, nutritional yeast, salt and olive oil.
Process until very creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed. Then taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more lemon zest for tartness, nutritional yeast for cheesiness, garlic for zing, or salt for balance. Place a fine mesh strainer (or colander) over a large mixing bowl, and lay down two layers of cheesecloth . Use a spatula to scoop all cheese over the cheesecloth, then gather the corners and twist the top gently to form the cheese into a "disc." Secure with a rubber band.
Place in refrigerator to set for 6-12 hours, or until excess moisture has been wicked away, and it holds its form when released from the cheesecloth. To serve, coat with chopped herbs and a bit more lemon zest (handle gently). Enjoy chilled with your favorite raw crackers or vegetables.

Natural Whipped Body Butter Recipe



Natural Whipped Body Butter Recipe

We love making natural beauty products - and they are one of our favorite gift ideas since they can be easily customized and are excellent for relatives, friends, pregnant moms, babies and even those with sensitive skin. Add essential body oils to customize - think citrus and lavender in spring and summer and peppermint in the winter.

Ingredients:
Instructions:
In a double boiler or glass bowl, combine all ingredients except essential oils.
Bring to medium heat and stir constantly until all ingredients are melted.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Move to fridge and let cool another 1 hour or until starting to harden but still somewhat soft.
Use a hand mixer to whip for 10 minutes until fluffy.
Return to fridge for 10-15 minutes to set.
Store in a glass jar with a lid and use as you would regular lotion or body butter. If your home stays above 75 degrees, it may soften and need to be kept at the fridge, but it will stay whipped at a temperature lower than that.
Enjoy!
