Summer Inspiration

family pic.salida


I’ve been a little delinquent with my newsletters lately. I’m spending my time doing what’s closest to my heart…spending time with my daughters. It’s been a fast-paced summer between softball and t-ball games, and a 10 day “working vacation” with the fam, but it’s been fun.

My family recently followed the Ride the Rockies tour as my husband’s company, Happy Llama, was the Official Merchandise Vendor. The daily schedule was: Wake up and be on the road by 7am, arrive in a town in Colorado, set up the tent and merchandise, work the booth all day, tear down and load up the trailer, and then head to the next town early the next morning. It was a lot of hard work and some long hot days, but I was so proud of my family for finding the fun, entertaining themselves, working hard, and barely whining at all!

We’ve been back for a few days, and I find my thoughts wandering to special moments captured on our travels. I was extremely inspired by so many different things including, landscape, nature, restaurants & food, craft beer and whiskey, so many kind-hearted PEOPLE!, hot springs, art galleries, jewelry stores, window shopping, small town Colorado, hard-working PEOPLE, bicyclists with so much heart & soul, blind bicyclists, 80+-year-old bicyclists, conversation, creative dreamers, and coming home to my dog and my life.

I believe it is important to get out and experience new things. EXPAND your heart and mind. Whether it’s a new restaurant or shop, a hiking trail, a class, sitting on a bench people watching or just walking around town, being inspired feels so exciting, fresh and good. You will feel rejuvenated and ready to take on challenges that might have been weighing you down.

I want to encourage you to get out and explore this summer. Take your time, use your five senses, be present, EXPAND and BREATHE.

 

SIDE NOTE: As I said, I am taking the summer to be close with my family. I’m planning on checking in, but if I don’t, I’ll be back when school starts up again????

An Easy Spring Detox Salad

kale avocado salad

Clean a bunch of kale from the tough stalks and rip into small bite-size pieces. Squeeze half a lemon and half an avocado into the bowl of kale. Sprinkle a pinch of Himalayan salt or celtic sea salt into the bowl. Using your hands, massage the kale mixture until all ingredients are incorporated. There will be small chunks of avocado. Sprinkle with hemp and sunflower seeds. DONE! You can also add cucumbers and/or tomatoes, but it’s just as good to keep it simple.

This is such an easy and awesome salad to add to your weekly rotation. You’ll be surprised how the lemon and avocado transform the bitterness to a sweetness!

Kale is a detox powerhouse for a number of reasons, including:

- “Kale is a member of the brassica family of vegetables which contain substances called glucosinolates which help to stimulate the liver detox enzymes.” (www.thedetoxspecialist.com)

- Kale contains iron, vitamin K, fiber and antioxidants 

- Rich in carotenoids and Chloryphyll, which are anti-cancer agents 

Avocados are another fantastic ingredient to add to your diet during a detox because it is a healthy fat. The avocado helps your gallbladder release bile, which in turn eliminates toxins. At that point, your gallbladder is better able to absorb essential vitamins and minerals.

Lemon will be the star of your detox showdown! Lemon has loads of vitamins, but more importantly is able to balance the pH of your body so that it is alkaline instead of acid. When your body’s pH is less acidic it becomes more able to release toxins.

Just this one salad can make a big detox difference in your diet. Add it to your weekly rotation of dinners, and your body will thank you!
