Health and Nutrition

Health and nutrition is a huge part of living the inspired heart lifestyle. It means being aware of how your body reacts to certain foods, products and even making sure you’re getting enough rest. Once I started to live in partnership with my body I found my whole life was actually easier to manage since I now have the energy and mindset that allows me to accomplish everything I need to during the day and with little stress.

To help you out, below you’ll find easy and health boosting recipes, tips and information on living a healthy lifestyle and living in partnership with your body.

I had always dreamed of being a runner and here I am now training for a half marathon that I signed up to run in October. Yes, I may be a little crazy since I never ran even a 10k but I know that I’m capable of running it and I’m determined.  I did my research on healthy foods for runners and developed my own cereal that will provide energy, assist with muscle repair and function and keep my body moving (especially when I feel like I want to give up).

Delicious ingredients needed:

4 Gluten-free, low fat, organic whole grain cereal

1/2 cup Organic walnuts (or any nuts you like, perhaps almonds)

1 cup Organic Kasha (roasted buckwheat kernels)

3/4 cup Organic hemp hearts

1/2 cup Organic chia seeds

1 cup Organic goji berries

You’ll notice that all the ingredients are organic. You can choose to buy non-organic; it’s up to you!

Measure and add the chia seeds, hemp hearts, cereal, nuts and kasha to a large bowl. Mix these ingredients well as you’ll find that the smaller ingredients will shuffle to the bottom of the bowl.

Roughly chop the goji berries and add them into the bowl. Mix well again.

Pour your cereal into an air-tight container.

When getting ready to serve yourself a bowl of this dynamic cereal, make sure to turn your container horizontally and give it a few shakes. I also keep the container on its side as I pour to make sure I get a great ratio of each health-boosting ingredient.

Enjoy your cereal knowing that it’s giving you everything you need to combat the day and support your body!
