The next 10-Day Sugar Challenge is just in time to take a break in between Halloween and Thanksgiving from all that sugar! What a great way to head into the holiday season and take charge of your health!

Sugar cubes picDid you know that high sugar intake is not only linked to dis-eases like high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and inflammation but sugar can also aggravate other conditions like hormonal imbalance, headaches and migraines, yeast infections, joint pain, and overgrowth of the “bad” bacteria in our gut?

Some of you might feel like you are addicted to sugar. Or maybe you might think you don’t eat much sugar until you decide to really clean it out of your diet (What? It’s in bread and deli meat?).

Nourish Yourself Group: Next enrollment starts in August 2017

Nourish Yourself Group: Next enrollment starts in August 2017

I’m thrilled to be putting together an exclusive new online group called Nourish Yourself. There is currently a group running, but the next one will start August 2017.  I am excited about creating a really dynamic, positive, focused group of women who will support each other in self-care practices, truly nourishing ourselves, and cultivating our mind-body-spirit connection so that we can show up powerfully in the world.

I’m calling the group Nourish Yourself because I think these times are calling for us to nourish ourselves in so many ways—food, movement, sleep, creativity, joy, and self-love. I also think we are more powerful together, which is why I want to create a group experience.

Having facilitated and participated in many groups over the years, I know how fantastic a well-guided group can be when we compassionately hold each other accountable, draw on our collective wisdom, celebrate the positive steps forward, and raise each other up.

What you will get out of the group:

★   Discover a personal solution that works for you because one size does not fit all!

★   Develop a platform for personal growth and transformation that addresses your thoughts, feelings, habits, and patterns to create new ones that help you achieve your goals around health and nutrition.

★   Practice ways to let go of guilt and fear around eating and instead really enjoy and celebrate food.

★   Learn to feel more confident in your ability to create nourishing meals or meal plans that support your body, mind and spirit.

★   Focus on gratitude for our body, enthusiasm for making small changes that lead to big results, and creating awareness about what we really need and want.

★   Explore various ways to nourish yourself and bring more joy to every day.

Email me at michelle@healthcoachmichelle.com if you are interested in adding yourself to the waiting list for the next group!

 

The Herb Series: Parsley

The Herb Series: Parsley

PARSLEY

Fun fact! Parsley was thought to be sacred by the ancient Greeks and has been cultivated for over 2,500 years. It is a rich, dense source of vitamin C, K and E, as folic acid and iron. And, is extremely rich in the minerals calcium and potassium and has high percentages of carotenoids and flavonoids.

parsley picHealth Benefits:

  • Parsley contains volatile oils that have been shown to inhibit tumor formation and increase antioxidant formation in the blood.
  • Its carminative properties reduces flatulence and colic.
  • Parsley is an emmenagogue, meaning it stimulates the menses, therefore be cautious and do not use in large amounts if you’re currently pregnant.
  • Does parsley have any other special attributes? Yes. Parsley is an excellent breath freshener!

Adding parsley to your cooking and recipes not only enhance brightness and flavor but it’s also easy and fun to explore new ways to incorporate them in.

Ways to use parsley in your cooking:

  • Add chopped fresh parsley to salads, soups, sauces, vegetable sautés and grilled meats.
  • Add to pesto sauce for more texture and green color.
  • Tabbouleh salad with parsley, bulgur wheat or quinoa, garlic,mint, lemon juice and olive oil.
  • Great for juicing or when making broths.
  • Easy tapenade with parsley, olives, pistachios, and olive oil: This is one of my FAVORITE recipes and is always a hit at parties!
TIP: Add fresh parsley at the end of cooking to retain its color, flavor and freshness!
