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:

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.

Why Cleanse? And Why Right Now?

Along with the banana, apples are one of the most commonly eaten fruits in the world. Studies show that they can potentially be amazing for your skin as well as offering anti-viral and anti-cancer properties.

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!

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.

So here’s where I have some incredibly good news: In between all of those epic upcoming holiday meals (whether you do them with or without meat) that are in front of us, there are also plenty of other lunches, breakfasts, and dinners that we can use to reasonably balance out those other heavy holiday meals.

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!

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!

Our new breakfast items will set the tone for your whole day. Eating a satisfying, delicious, nutrient-packed breakfast is a powerful tool in maintaining a healthy weight, and to remind yourself that you’re a person who values healthy choices. When you make the right choices, you keep your metabolism cranking, your mental clarity and energy levels high, and you set your entire day on the right track.

I also recommend starting with a green juice to kick off your day. So add it to any of our brand new breakfast items offered at our location at Healthworks in Back Bay, including the following two. Both are bolstered in nutritional value since they contain our almond milk which is loaded with protein, antioxidants, plus vitamins such as E and B complex, and minerals such as manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and fiber.

September 2, 2015 |

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
