How To Live Life Outloud A-Z “K”

KindnessKindness

Kindness an action lacking in some people these days. Kindness is one of the key ‘fruits of the Spirit’ from the Christian Bible.

” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, KINDNESS, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control” Gal 5: 22

Kindness is looking outside of our present circumstance and into another person’s life with the intention of benefiting or helping that person in some way. Kindness can be a simple act such as getting up to offer your seat for someone else; holding the door open for the people following you; smiling at a stranger. So easy, yet so lacking in 2013. Be a blessing today and focus on showing some kindness to people  in your life- today.

Knight in shining armour

Calling all females! How to BE in 2013…. so many of us are confused. We don’t know how to act. Many have not been shown HOW to be a lady. How do you attract a knight in shining armour- and more importantly- does such a creature even exist?! Indeed he does; but he does not show himself to girls who flaunt themselves in handkerchiefs masquerading as clothing; nor does he show himself to females who give themselves freely. You know what I mean. Girls.. it is worth the wait. So wait. Wait for your knight in shining armour – do not LOOK for him. Get on with living your own life and he will appear. Take time to grow into you with poise and grace.  Your knight will appear for his princess. Be on alert for predators. Predators are a dime a dozen and easy to spot- predators will want to move fast. Knights are happy to take it slow. A knight will respect you for your elegance; your restraint; your class and your grace. A knight will admire you growing into the amazingness that is you and will encourage you on this path. Stay clear of the trap which is the world- you not need to bare all of your flesh to attract a man of integrity, class and honour. Keep your kisses for your true knight. Save your heart from breaking too many times. Stay away from the dark cold world that demands you sell your soul and your self respect to the first male that shows you attention and you will reap the benefits for finding true love in a world teaching confusion to the masses.

Kombucha and Kefir

…what are these?! Both Kombucha and Kefir are fermented foods. Fermented foods are- very basically- foods that can help balance the gut with good bacteria.  Why do we need foods such as these?

Our world is fast paced. We live in a microwave society where we expect everything yesterday. Our foods are often over processed, pre-packaged, pre-made, and dare I say it-microwaved. ‘Food’ such as this is dead. It provides the body very little to zero nutritional benefit. By introducing fermented foods into our diets, we can help start to balance the bacteria in the gut. This is very important to our overall health-more so than most people realise. Kombucha and kefir are just two of many options that can aid in the growth of pre and pro-biotics needed in the gut via nutrition. Pop into your local quality health food store for more information on probiotics and fermented foods; or message me for guidance. I have recently experienced the result of stripping my gut completely from all good and bad bacteria. It is an awful experience. There are specific steps needed to repopulate the gut with good bacteria in order for the body to have the ability to actually can digest and absorb nutrients in the food we eat, and keep disease at bay. You need a good naturopath to oversee you in this process. Without a healthy gut you have little control over your health and open yourself to dis-ease. Get it right. NOW.

Kale and Sea Kelp

Greens, greens and more greens! Alkalise that body! Fall in love with your greens! Find a great local farmers markets; organic preferably, and visit every week. Green veges are you new best friend! They help you flush the body of toxins which in turn reduces fat resulting in size/fat loss! As 70% of our population is overweight/obese- this is a GOOD THING!

Kale– some of the many benefits of kale include: ” A super food for life – one cup of kale contains vitamins K, A, C, B6, E plus minerals such as, manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron, and magnesium.”

Sea Kelp in small doses: “Sea kelp is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as minerals including zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and calcium. In fact it contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food – 10 times more than milk.”

Kilojoules

My meals are largely comprised of protein, good fats and loads of green leafy vegetables. Why? Because meals like this can turn my body into a lean, mean, fat-burning machine. Polenta vegetarian frittataPerhaps they will do the same for you too! I have no idea as to how many kilojoules they comprise of.

Move more to burn kilojoules but DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME COUNTING THEM! What is the point of counting kilojoules when our bodies use foods in very different ways? Counting kilojoules is a waste of my time and results only in worry and paranoia if I eat clean, whole, organic fresh food!

Eat clean fresh, wholefoods; mostly protein, good fats and plenty of fresh organic leafy green veges; move that body for 30mins to an hour a day (walking is great!); drink plenty of filtered alkaline water if you can; get 8 hours sleep ideally; and reduce your STRESS levels over and above all else.

Health is not rocket science so we ought to stop treating it like it is. Keep it simple. it is time to wake up to ourselves and admit that we know most food arriving in a box; most pre-made food; any fast food… is not food at all. Lets get logical and go back to basics in this life of ours. In order to live a long, healthy, prosperous, energetic life without the BRAIN FOG every single day of our lives.. it is simple:

Choose kindness to reduce stress!; choose to wait for your knight in shining armour to reduce heart ache and…stress;  choose kombucha, kefir and fermented foods to give your body pre and probiotics to help digest your foods; choose kale and kelp and green leafy veges, choose whole foods, choose organic foods to help get alkaline and be filled with energy. Choose to move more and burn kilojoules without the need to count them!

Choose life. One life, live it well!!!
