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.

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

An Apple a Day

October 7, 2016 |

Everyone knows the old Welsh proverb that goes “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. What many people may not realize is that there is a surprising amount of truth in these wise words. 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.

November 23, 2015 |

Guest post shared on Bostinno

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.

In short, it’s this: How do you enjoy the festive indulgences of the season (Hello, cornbread stuffing and eggnog martinis!), while still staying healthy and keep from going off the rails?

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.

Healthy quinoa recipe

Superfood: A Quintessential Quinoa Recipe

October 13, 2015 |
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!

Your First Fuel: Breakfast is Served

October 2, 2015 |

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.

Why Cleanse? And Why Right Now?

September 21, 2015 |

We all know what happens at the beginning of every new season: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Superfood: Bee Pollen

March 26, 2015 |

The bees are back! Warm weather has them about to buzz back into action, which means we get to reap the benefits of their pollen—a powerhouse of health-rich elements for our bodies and brains. At Nourish Your Soul, we offer it as an add-on to any smoothie.

For starters, it contains up to 40% high-quality protein (more than any animal product) and all of the essential amino acids, making it an excellent food for nourishing the brain and building strength.
