What My Mother Taught Me

May 14, 2017 |

On this Mother’s Day, I thought I’d write about what my mom has meant to me, and the impact she has on me as a mom and person. My mom is pictured here with my sisters, me and her granddaughters.  I know she has and will continue to have a major influence on all of us.  Her unconditional love’s meant so much to me over the years–always, but especially when my own journey has offered challenges, heartbreak, and new beginnings. Here are the biggest lessons I’ve learned from her:

Spring vibes

March 20, 2017 |

Hello Spring!!!  Spring represents a new season of beginnings with longer days, warmer days and beautiful things .  It is a time to renew, cleanse, rejuvenate, shine and to lighten up and shed some layers… both emotionally and physically. Focusing on consuming spring’s bounty of delicious fruits, vegetables, and legumes will rid the body of toxins, cleanse your organs, and fend off the damaging effects of food additives. It’s also a great time to ground yourself, move your body and breathe.

February Love

February 7, 2017 |
The Roman month Februarius was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification. Let’s connect with that energy to cleanse and renew with the focus on loving & taking care of ourselves.
We are not just talking about the relationships you have with others. We are also talking about the relationship you have with YOU! Loving yourself like you would your best relationship. Nourishing yourself so you can be comfortable in your own skin, celebrating who you are, deep down to your core. Knowing your body is a beautiful thing and treating it with love. When you do this you allow your light to shine and you inspire others to do the same. It’s about taking care of yourself and then sharing that love with the people you care most about.
Unconditional self love requires you to see the magic & beauty in yourself. So no matter where you are right now, breathe in as much love & nourishment as you can this month and see how that comes back to you! Let Nourish Your Soul help take care of you! We are committed to nourishing the body, creating healthy cells and bodies so you can glow & shine from the inside out.
Cleanse and renew today.

Why Cleanse? And Why Right Now?

January 11, 2017 |
We all know what happens at the beginning of every New Year: We generally make a slew of big promises to ourselves that never wind up coming to fruition. Or we do well with them for a week or two, and then slip right back into our old self-destructive habits.

Set an intention.

December 31, 2016 |

This season is a beautiful time to ask yourself what do you want out of each experience you encounter. How much of it are you doing for yourself? How much are you doing for others? Are you giving more than you’re being given? Are you taking more than you’re giving back? Again, balance is key to everything. Read More

Express gratitude.

December 27, 2016 |

Before setting all of our New Year’s resolutions, how about taking a moment to reflect on the present moment? Think about this past year: what you’ve accomplished, what challenges you’ve dealt with, what decisions you’ve made, and what you have created. Write them down, breathe them in, and acknowledge all that you’ve done. Read More

Just Breathe

Move your body.

December 20, 2016 |

I don’t care if it’s in between holiday concerts, crazy work hours, open houses, or gift shopping. Find something you love to do, and do it! Maybe you grab a spin class or go walking. Maybe you do a few downward dogs before finishing up the errands. Go for a run or do Pilates before taking care of everyone else. Exercising helps to reset the body, burn calories, ease stress, and help you focus. Plus, it’s just fun and pretty darn joyful.And honestly, isn’t that what the holidays are about anyway? Read More

Find the quiet. Meditate.

December 17, 2016 |

There’s no question in my mind that you deserve a moment to breathe, relax, and carve out time for yourself. All you need is a few minutes. Taking the moments to meditate will benefit you, everyone around you, probably the rest of your week, and even the rest of your year.

I began to experience the power of meditation in my life when I started a consistent yoga practice. I learned to quiet my mind and let go. Once I was able to do that, I knew I had to take it to the next level. The next step for me was to find the time to sit quietly each day. Read More

Nourish Your Mom: Celebrating Mothers by Making Them Healthier

May 5, 2016 |

In honor of their unconditional love, we are honoring all mothers this weekend. A mother’s love comes in many different forms, all of which nurture and help us grow. I’m grateful for the influence my mom has on me; it’s shaped and helped me grow into who I am today.

In fact, this weekend, we honor all people who we have connected to their nourishing and nurturing energy, and allowed us to grow into who we’ve become. Take this time to celebrate the women in your life for their unconditional love, and the sacrifices they’ve made for us. Show them true gratitude for the lessons we’ve taken from them as we move along on our own journeys as mothers or women. Honor the mother in your life, or maybe the one that exists within you, on this Mother’s Day.

Nine Ways To Nourish Your Skin From The Inside Out

March 10, 2016 |

Winter can be one of the hardest months on our skin—the cold weather can seriously dry it out. So now that are transitioning into a new season, dreaming of warmer days and are focusing again on our health, try loading up on foods that give you shiny, healthy hair and hydrated skin. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “You are what you eat,” so eating foods that hydrate can be hugely beneficial for the skin. While there are many products that help, it’s best to also hydrate from the inside out!

Moving on From Grief

December 16, 2015 |

This time of year can be a joyful one, but also one filled with grief–the kind we have as individuals and that we share as families. The healing process only gets underway when we address that grief. So I thought I would share my story in hopes that it can help all of us to add to that healing.

I used to live what most people would consider an ideal life. I had a loving and handsome husband, three beautiful daughters, and a lucrative and fulfilling career. We lived in a beautiful house, went on many family vacations each year, and generally felt blessed and happy. But everything changed within moments of waking up one haunting morning 10 years ago.

6 Tips for Radiant, Glowing Skin

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Like Kubler-Ross, we know that radiant, glowing skin is more than surface-deep. It’s about what we put into your body, what we do to reduce stress and find inner calm, and how we choose to spend our time. So here are six sustainable actions you can incorporate into your daily routine to achieve radiant skin.

Right now is almost the time of year that can get incredibly stressful what with all the holiday parties, kids’ activities, work, bills, Christmas shopping, and so on.

Often what goes along with this stress is bad eating habits and lack of exercise—which in turn just contributes to the stress! So the biggest question is, how do you calm the mind before the stress does some major damage to the body?

Tips for staying healthy over the holiday

The holidays have officially kicked into full gear… and with them, so has that annually familiar push-and-pull, yin-and-yang conflict we often have with ourselves this time of year.

Why Green Juice?

November 20, 2015 |

Adding green juice to your diet is the best way to increase your life force energy. When we juice fruits and vegetables, we separate out the fiber, leaving the liquid that contains live enzymes, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. Removing the fiber allows the nutrients to be released immediately into your cells and bloodstream in a form that’s easy to assimilate.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it’s a great time to pause beforehand and think about what the day really symbolizes for us. After all of the relatives have left and the last load of dishes has finally been put away, how will we be left feeling? What will all of the hugging, eating, laughing, and giving thanks have added up to, for us to carry with us everyday? What will be the leftovers of our leftovers, so to speak?

How to Get Grounded When Life Gets Crazy

November 9, 2015 |

To ground ourselves, we need to remove ourselves from the clutter in our minds and connect to the present moment.  We literally need to ground ourselves to Mother Earth and connect to its energies. Grounding ourselves energetically is important for our mental, emotional, and physical health.

So what’s the best way to ground ourselves and connect to the energies of the earth? That’s as easy as it is simple: Walking barefoot in nature. The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy that can recharge and heal. Rooting down into the earth provides us with a strong foundation to allow us to grow, blossom, and create.

What do we do when we can’t always take our shoes off? Here’s a list of things that I do:

Swapping out bulgar wheat in favor of quinoa makes it gluten-free. Not to mention (and this is a big bonus here) quinoa is a complete protein, since it contains all of the essential amino acids. It’s also high in iron and calcium, and a good source of manganese, magnesium, copper, and fiber. The following recipe is chock full of superfoods that make it a healthy, digestible dish. It’s fantastic as a post-cleanse meal, or enjoy it during your Glow Cleanse!
hydrating Nourish Your Soul waters

Cleansing right: The difference is like night and day

October 9, 2015 |

Did you know that during your cleanse we also provide you with not just the key juices, but also an a.m. water and a p.m. water?

We do that for a handful of very important reasons. The biggest benefit of any cleanse is that it moves toxins through the body. Without proper hydration, that can’t happen, and toxins may instead even re-accumulate in your system, causing more harm than good. While cleansing, make sure to drink half your weight in ounces of filtered water daily to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Why drink lemon water in a.m. hours? If you do one thing during and after your cleanse, this should be it. It’s the ritual that can most improve your health. And it’s best first thing in morning, and at room temperature. Its huge benefits include:

A Soul-warming, Good-for-you Meal

October 5, 2015 |

As the chillier weather sets in, we naturally start craving warm, comforting foods …some of which aren’t as healthy for our bodies as they could be. Well, here’s one that is. Not only is it enormously satisfying, it uses unsweetened coconut milk instead of the unusual milk or cream, which keeps things light. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to make, and can be done days ahead of time so when you need a simple meal, just open the fridge and reheat.

It’s also a great meal for transitioning out of a cleanse back to your regular eatings habits.

We consider it a triple threat: easy to make, good for you, and downright delicious. Enjoy!

But so often, that’s because people jump right into overly ambitious goals without starting with a clean, healthy base structure. By that a mean, a clear head, a clean, toxin-free, healthy body, and the energy they need to focus on their next goals.

Before we get down to why chia—an edible seed that comes from the desert plant salvia hispanica—is packed with things that will make your body incredibly happy and healthy, let’s get this out of the way:

Yes, it’s the same plant that launched those ridiculously laughable ‘80s and ‘90s novelties, chia pets. But don’t let that stop you from loving chia. It’s not the seeds’ fault that they got made into something so silly. And in fact, when it comes to making and keeping you healthy as a food, chia is pretty darn serious.

Got Milk? Sure. But Which Kind is Best For Your Body?

August 26, 2015 |

Dairy can be very difficult for the human body to digest—for a bevy of reasons.

First, our bodies have a hard time breaking down the protein molecule in the cow’s milk called casein. Second, since milk is pasteurized, many of its good attributes are processed out, including its natural enzymes.

Butter and cream, on the other hand, don’t contain casein and are much easier to break down. Goat and sheep’s dairy are also easier to digest. Other very good options are almond milk, cashew milk, rice milk, and goat milk.

This two-part post is dedicated to helping you do that with movements that detox, heal, keep you focused and balanced (both mentally and physically), and with foods that de-bloat and help with digestion.

summer tomatoes

Superfood: Tomatoes

August 18, 2015 |

Summer—and August in particular—is the ideal time of year to eat tomatoes in New England. Not that they don’t taste great all the time, but during this small seasonal window, they’re locally grown and in their peak, meaning they taste sweeter, lusciously acidic, juicier, and more like a fruit (which technically, they are) than at any other time.

They’re also a treasure trove of nutrition, including a type of phytochemicals that bring all kinds of health perks. That jelly-like stuff around the seeds? That’s packed with vitamin C, as is the rest of the tomato. It’s also a great source of lutein, zeaxanthin, as well as vitamins A, E, and the B vitamins, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus.

The Health Benefits of Being Grateful

August 13, 2015 |

It turns out mom was right when she told you to always say thank you. And not just because it’s polite, but also because it could seriously improve your overall health.

A movement called positive psychology has done several studies that show grateful people (meaning those who describe gratitude as a permanent rather than temporary in their everyday lives) tend to take better care of themselves, practice more healthful habits like diet and exercise, and in general, are far less stressed out.

Superfood: Blueberries

August 11, 2015 |

Blueberries do a body good! This little fruit softens dry skin, boosts your brain, and may even prevent cancer. In fact, they could just be the king of antioxidant foods; they protect our bodies from damage by free radicals–unstable molecules that can damage cellular structures and contribute to aging and diseases. And they do way more, too….

Your Healthiest, Happiest Vacation Yet

August 5, 2015 |

August is upon us and to many that means taking a summer vacation before we get back to our fall routines. We take care of our bodies all year long, and then vacation comes along, and those efforts often fall to the wayside. The question is: Do they have to?  Vacation should be about relaxing, enjoying ourselves, taking a break and also playing. But it’s important to find that balance and go with the flow. Routines are great and healthy, but so is changing it up and remembering that having no rules can be just as important.

Here are for a few tips for keeping some of your healthy routine in place so you can still feel good about yourself during vacation.  This way you can be the best version of yourself and still be present and enjoy the moment.

Grilled steak for healthy summer eating

Know the source of your meat

July 24, 2015 |

This is one time of year that, more than many others, celebrates the glory of the barbecue. Grilling meat is embedded in the culture of American summer. And though I wouldn’t ever advise anyone against enjoying it if it’s what they enjoy, it is worth having a conversation about how do to it the right way—for your own health, for the health of our planet’s animals, and its entire ecosystem as a whole.

Everything in Moderation… Even Excess

July 13, 2015 |

Summer’s here and we’re surrounded by fresh fruit and veggies that are in season! BUT… instead you find yourself overindulging in not-so-healthy foods. You’re not alone. Maybe it’s the BBQ, picnics, drinks, or just eating more on vacation. Instead of feeling light, you feel bloated, hung over, and far from your best self.  Believe me, we’ve all been there!

There’s no black and white when it comes to our well being. Going to extremes is never good for anyone emotionally or physically. We all know that eating healthy foods (meaning whole, fresh, and not processed) is the way to go, but there are times when we indulge too much and overeat, or just plain make the wrong choices. I’m here to say it is OKAY to do that sometimes. Let go of the guilt; it doesn’t help. The way we live should never be all or nothing. When we fall off the wagon, we just need to get back on track to find the right balance.

So how do we do that? It’s about nourishing your soul.

Balance Through Seasonal Eating

July 10, 2015 |

Continuing on with our previous post on having an Ayurveda summer, now is a great time to dive further into some of the principles of the practice, and how we can bring them to the fore in our own lives.

One of the fundamental principles of Ayurveda is that our habits, routines, and dietary choices should ebb and flow with the seasons. How do we stay in balance? By making a conscious effort to live in harmony with the cycles of nature and by regularly adjusting our lifestyle and habits to accommodate the beginning of each new season.

Don’t Overheat This Summer: Go Ayurvedic

July 6, 2015 |

Every time you’re feeling overheated this summer, remind yourself of this: The teachings of Ayurveda, yoga’s wellness branch, combine the five natural elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) and put them into play as a way to deal with summer’s heat.

The essential idea of Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illnesses by keeping a balance within your mind and your body by staying conscious with the help of good hydration, diet, lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.

Superfood: Dandelion Greens

June 17, 2015 |

When we think of dandelion greens, most of us picture a pesky summertime weed on our lawn. And yes, they certainly are that. But did you know they’re also a nutritional powerhouse—and a tasty one, at that?

Dandelion greens are a natural healer, with detoxing properties and loads of nutrients that are known for detoxifying the liver, acting as a diuretic for the body, promoting radiant skin, diminishing bloating, and helping bone health and weight loss.

Cleanse Tip, Part 4: Getting Sleep and Slowing Down

June 15, 2015 |

First of all, getting eight hours of sleep isn’t always easy. But during your cleanse, it’s extra-important to make it a priority. You’ll get a lot more out of the cleanse if your body’s well rested. Keep your schedule more relaxed and be open to getting more sleep than usual, and let your body do the work it needs to do to get you feeling your absolute best.

I also encourage you to slow things down. I know I’ve said in the past that exercising and moving your body is important to flush out toxins, and it is. What I’m referring to here is more mental; it’s taking the opportunity during a cleanse to slow down and focus on the present moment. There’s so much pressure these days to get things done. Whenever we’re rushing from Point A to Point B, it takes us out of the present moment.

5 Ways to Bring Yoga Into Your Child’s Day

June 9, 2015 |

Today we’re welcoming another guest blogger, Gabrielle Rossetti. Gabby received her Yoga Teacher Certification from South Boston Yoga and her Kids’ Yoga Certification from the Open Doors Teacher Training Program. She began sharing yoga with the families she babysat for and quickly fell in love with teaching children. Her classes are playful and relaxing, incorporating fun games, singing, music, and traditional yoga poses. Here, she shares her love and knowledge with all of us, so we can all experience the joy of practicing it with our kids.

Children are natural masters of yoga. They’re flexible, creative, open to trying new things without fear of failing, and they adore movement. They also have a sharp memory and love music. Here are five ways you can start incorporating yoga into your child’s day:

The Beets Are Back

June 8, 2015 |

Ah, beets. Those boldly hued, sweet-flavored, healthy harbingers of summertime. They’re as appropriate at a sophisticated luncheon in a smartly dressed salad as they are wrapped in tinfoil and thrown on the grill at a casual barbecue. Now that summer’s underway, they’re with us to stay for a while—in New England that means June through September.

Nutrition-wise, this root vegetable is a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains, and both are hugely helpful to our detoxification systems, providing antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.

Mike is an award-winning personal trainer and a certified expert in sports medicine; he trains some of Boston’s biggest names, and is himself an internationally ranked bodybuilder. One of his biggest specialties, though, is in motivating his clients to work out and feel as healthy as they can. Here’s his third contribution to our site:

SAY GOODBYE TO WINTER & HELLO TO YOUR MOST RADIANT SELF

May 29, 2015 |

As all Bostonians remember, this winter was especially hard. (How could we forget??) As a result, we slowed down, hibernated in our homes, and many of us gravitated toward heavier foods to provide comfort.

But now the Summer Solstice is here: It’s a time of celebration. A time of honoring the light we now have, and our connection to the sun and the earth. Every culture has festivals to honor this time, and our ancestors around the earth have built numerous monuments to commemorate its time.

Changing… Inside & Out

May 28, 2015 |

Changing ourselves can be an incredibly hard thing—especially if we’ve faced (or are facing) a big life challenge that has us feeling scared and/or stuck.

To me, cleansing has come to be synonymous with starting over—nutritionally and physically, sure, but also mentally and philosophically, too.

I know how powerful it can be to start over. Years ago I went through a tragedy myself, and eventually, after a long period of intense sadness and feelings of helplessness, I started changing my habits.

Cold-Pressed Juice Cocktail Recipes For Memorial Day Weekend

May 22, 2015 |

Gabby Rossetti, who many of you have met at Nourish Your Soul events and at one of our locations, is working with Nourish Your Soul to widen our ever-growing community. Her first collaboration is with John Libonati, Founder and Owner of Social Wines, a Boston wine, craft beer, and spirits store. Since it’s almost Memorial Day long weekend, Gabby figured this was a perfect time to ask John to provide us with some insight about the best spirits to mix with three of our cold-pressed juices: PPM, Tropical Cleanser, and Green Juice. We also asked John his opinion on organic, locally-sourced spirits.

While we ALWAYS believe in nourishing your body with the most nutrient dense foods possible, we also believe in living life and finding balance! Many of our clients have asked me for “healthy” drink options that they can enjoy at cocktail parties, BBQs, family gatherings, and other celebratory events. What I do believe, like John shares below, is that we can “enjoy the essence of the botanicals used in spirits without overindulging.” So with that in mind, this weekend and every weekend, enjoy your celebration with no guilt.

matcha milk, healthy juice!

The Magic of Matcha

May 18, 2015 |

A finely ground, bright emerald-green tea powder, matcha has been a focal point of Japanese tea ceremonies for more than 900 years. The Buddhist monks honored it as a health elixir for its potential to heighten concentration and enhance the metabolism.

The organic tea is high in antioxidants called catechin polyphenols, which are linked to everything from decreased cancer risk and reduced cholesterol and blood pressure to boosted metabolism.

It’s also high in antioxidants; one cup provides five times the amount of any other food. Antioxidants are responsible for fighting against the negative effects of UV radiation, giving us younger looking skin, and an increased immune system.

The Flying Trapeze

May 14, 2015 |

Sometimes, I feel that my life is a series of trapeze swings. I’m either hanging on to a trapeze bar swinging along or, for a few moments, I’m hurdling across space between the trapeze bars.

Mostly, I spend my time hanging on for dear life to the trapeze bar of the moment. It carries me along a certain steady rate of swing and I have the feeling that I’m in control. I know most of the right questions, and even some of the right answers. But once in a while, as I’m merrily, or not so merrily, swinging along, I look ahead of me into the distance, and what do I see?

Another Great Post-cleanse Meal

April 26, 2015 |

So you’re nearing the end of your cleanse (or are thinking ahead to when you will be)? Transitioning back to everyday healthy eating doesn’t have to be tricky; it can actually be pretty darn easy and downright delicious.

Take, for example, this fresh springtime favorite that we love at Nourish Your Soul. It employs unsweetened coconut milk instead of the unusual milk or cream, which keeps things light and healthy. The whole thing takes less than 30 minutes to make, and can be done days ahead of time so when you need a simple meal, just open the fridge and reheat. That also makes it the perfect dish to incorporate into your #springfittraining regimen. Enjoy!

Getting Motivated to Get Back in Shape, Part Two

April 8, 2015 |

Knowing how many of us are struggling to get ourselves in the right mindset to work out and get fit after a long winter of hibernation, I’m happy to welcome back guest fitness expert Mike D’Angelo. Mike is an award-winning personal trainer and a certified expert in sports medicine; he trains some of Boston’s biggest names, and is himself an internationally ranked bodybuilder. One of his biggest specialties, though, is in motivating his clients to work out and feel as healthy as they can. Here’s is his second contribution to our site:

OK, so in my last post I talked about how it can actually only take half the time to get yourself back to where you were back when you were in shape last time. And really, getting back there is all in your head.

So let’s talk motivation. When someone’s motivated, they’re thinking about a combination of where they want to be and what actions need to be taken right now to make that happen. When you’re able to see which actions it will take and how long it will be to reach your goal, which serves as a catalyst to take action. That is motivation.

Cleansing Tip, Part 3: Journaling

March 31, 2015 |

Cleansing isn’t just about slurping down a convenient (and tasty) drink in place of your regular lunch. It’s also very much about slowing things down and listening to your body.

Sure, drinking those juices can rid toxins in the body to help you function better, but it also gives you the opportunity to clear your mind, too. It’s an opportunity to dig in deep mentally, and take the time to let go of anything that no longer serves you and may be weighing you down. Here are some self-love actions to nourish your inward self back to your roots. And they can be done before, during, and after your cleanse.

Journal: As you’re cleansing, take the time to reflect about what’s going on in your life on an everyday basis and on a larger scale. A few great contemplation topics include:

It’s tough after so many cold months to get yourself excited to get up and move again, and get back into the shape you want to be in for spring and summer. We’ve all been there!

But the fact is, if you’ve done it before, you’ve already laid critical groundwork.
