Eating Well for Living Well

We all know that the old line “you are what you eat” is true, so why can’t we apply it to our everyday lives? I myself have a hard time, from time-to-time, to live this motto and I am a holistic nutrition consultant!

We all have many outside influences that can be negative or positive that will effect our food decisions daily. It’s important to try and do the best that we can to eat well every day. I think one thing we can all try to do is to keep fresh, organic and hopefully locally grown food in our homes. As soon as I get home from the store or farmer’s market, I try to wash my produce so it’s available for anyone in the house to eat right away. I make a big salad and keep it in the fridge so I will eat it for 2 meals per day. It can be very time consuming to do this each time I shop, but the end results are really worth it.
This year my family joined a local CSA (community serviced agriculture) in the Metro-Detroit area called Maple Creek Farm. I indirectly know the owner from some very good friends of mine who have participated with the farm for years. I am so excited to get my weekly pick-up which starts in June! This year they will offer two sizes of harvest…. a 3/4 bushel and a 1/2 bushel. My family has decided to start with the small harvest and we are going to try to grow some of our own produce as well. Check out their website at www.maplecreekfarm.com for more information.

Meditation

It seems to me, that more and more people are looking for ways to reduce stress. We all know that this economy has really hit some people hard in the face, my family included. Many people are so stressed out right now that it is causing illness, panic attacks, overeating just to name a few unhealthy additions to their lives. What can one do about this added stress that is low cost and easy to do? Meditate.


I teach mantra meditation in the Metro-Detroit area and have for several years. Many of my students have been instructed by their doctors (it’s about time) to learn how to meditate or else they will have to face medication to “fix them”. Many of my students have been able to stop taking medications they were prescribed because they have been able to see positive results from their meditation practice.

Meditation is something you can do anywhere, anytime. YOU have all the tools you need to practice meditation with you at all times. All you really need is to have an instructor that can not only guide you through the process, but who can also be there to follow-up and answer questions that may arise.

If you would like more information on the classes I teach, please feel free to contact me at jasmindoula@aol.com. Keep in mind that I am in the Metro-Detroit area.
