Wellness Wisdom Tips from Angela


Riding on the Oregon Coast

Welcome Welcome Welcome, Wellness Warriors! Spring is definitely here and now is a good time to do some spring cleaning with your diet and lifestyle. I'm here today to show and tell a bit about my secrets to health and wellness. If any of this inspires you or if you have questions, please leave a comment at the end and we can keep this conversation going.


MY FAVORITE DAILY SUPPLEMENTS:

Krill oil, vitamin D (I live on the Oregon Coast!) and a probiotic.


CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT MY:

Morning cup of Dandelion Root Tea, it’s a great liver cleanse (we all need this)


DAILY BREAKFAST:

Scrambled eggs with zucchini, onions and spinach. Sliced 1/2 avocado & quinoa. I’ve also been known to have a hearty soup for breakfast on occasion.


5 THINGS THAT ARE ALWAYS IN MY MEDICINE CABINET:

Organic honey,  arnica/st. john’s wort oil, lavender essential oil, colloidal silver and epsom salts.


FAVORITE EXERCISE:

Tai Chi – Yang Style  with Qigong warm-ups


DAILY I.......

Get out in nature. Whether it’s hiking or gardening or walking the dog, get out and move!


ON TAP:

Filtered water! I have the Berkey filter and homemade Kombucha (my husband makes the BEST)


BEST FAST FOOD OPTION:

Kale Chips, Nuts (raw cashews are my fave), avocado, cherry tomatoes, jicama and daikon radish (those things are seriously tasty!) – no cooking and full of nutrients.


BEST HEALTHY RESTAURANT TIP:

ALWAYS ask for salad dressing on the side, then only use 1/2 and dress it yourself. Avoid ordering fried foods or items that have sauces, they are usually packed with bad fats, gluten and dairy.


SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK I COOK...

A big stir fry with a rainbow of colorful veggies in it.


MOST IMPORTANT HEALTH ADVICE...

Diets NEVER work, Lifestyle changes DO! We are all different – find an “eating style” that is right for you.


READING LIST:

My latest read was “Tales of a Female Nomad, Living at Large in the World” by Rita Golden Gelman. It was adventurous and made me realize food, relationships and having a sense of community are universal. We should connect to our communities more and share good food in the process.


GO-TO HEALTH RESOURCES:

Dr Aviva Romm. She ROCKS!      https://avivaromm.com/

Vani Hari https://foodbabe.com/  know what’s in your food!!

Dr. Mercola and Dr. David Katz check them both out online


CRAZY HEALTH IDEA THAT ACTUALLY WORKS:

Chew your food! It creates mindfulness and helps break down food for digestion.


MY FOOD PHILOSOPHY:

Eat local and eat seasonal. Join a food co-op and support community sustainable agriculture.


NON-NEGOTIABLE:

Refined sugar!


SIMPLEST WAY TO IMPROVE HEALTH:

Deep Breathing


FAVORITE HEALTH GETAWAY:

Any hot springs! I love a good soak in nature.


MY CURRENT MANTRA:

Laughter is the best medicine


MY HEALTH PASSION:

Bicycling and Tai Chi (Can I have two?)


HEALTH TREND TO AVOID:

Dieting. The word DIET has the word DIE in it. I’ve never known anyone who we successful in the long run on any DIET.


MY GO-TO MEAL:

Stirfry. A good dish should never take more than 20 minutes to prepare.

INGREDIENTS:

KALE, Asparagus, mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, broccoli, chicken or tofu toasted sesame oil, tamari sauce

DIRECTIONS:

Chop veggies bite size

Heat toasted sesame oil in wok

Add veggies

Cook 10 min. stirring occasionally

Add tamari sauce at end and serve. YUM!


I hope these tidbits have inspired you to incorporate one or two into your daily routine. Let me know how it goes and together we can "Ride the Wave" to Wellness.
