5 Ways To Be SIMPLY Your Best. By Dr. Blythe Metz

Plants! I have good news. Plants are the answer to most of our weight and health issues. Just eat more plants! This includes all parts of plants we consider vegetables, herbs, fruits, legumes, tree nuts, grains and mushrooms. Eating more plants is tastier and easier than you think, I promise! I have a few delicious and simple recipes to share with you that I think you will love. I want to inspire you with nutrient dense easy meals the whole family will enjoy. Recipes are below. Cultured Food! Cultured foods are another imperative part of an optimal diet. I know many people are confused about that, so I included a video below that teaches you how to make your own sauerkraut. It’s easy, fun and hugely beneficial for your immune system and overall well being. I encourage you to try the recipe and process you see below in the video, and include your children in the chopping or massaging of the vegetables if they are old enough. Children learn from our example. When we prepare foods like this with our children we teach them powerful tools for a healthy life. PLUS they always have fun interacting with food in the ways required for making sauerkraut. This is a recipe formula, you can use the vegetables and herbs you like the best. Watch and learn how to Make Your Own Sauerkraut! Habit Forming! Achieving and maintaining optimal health and fitness happens in our daily habits. What are your daily food habits. Write down 3-5 food habits you have, good or bad, no judgement here. Some examples would be: 1) 1 cup of coffee every morning, 2) smoothie for breakfast every morning 3) skipping breakfast, 4) salad with dinner every night, 5) afternoon chocolate fix, 6) afternoon coffee, 7) afternoon juice, 8) wine with dinner, 9) overeating at dinner or eating late, etc. Write down as many food habits as you can think of. Review these habits and acknowledge the productivity of each habit, is it a beneficial habit or a habit you’d like to release? Acknowledge yourself for the beneficial food habits you have so that you will continue to build a stronger consciousness for self care. Release any unproductive habit you have by making a better choice in the moment. After several times of making a better choice you will have created a new habit. For instance, instead of an afternoon sugar pick-me-up, choose to have a superfood pick-me-up like goldenberries, or a superfood shake.

For men and women alike our environment and diet can wreck havoc on our precious and sensitive endocrine system. Keeping our sugar intake to a minimum and refraining from consuming conventional animal products with added synthetic hormones is a huge start. We can then also choose to eat foods that specifically benefit our endocrine system like coconut, maca, and he shou wo. Click here to watch how to make a Hormone Balancing Smoothie. Strong Immunity! Keeping your immune system strong this winter is paramount. You may have already succumbed to a cough or cold, or even the flu, which in my opinion is completely preventable by keeping your immunity strong with these simple remedies.
