Raw Carrot, Coconut and Avocado Soup

If you’re trying to get off sugar (or take a break from sugar) and balance your blood sugar levels this soup is for you. Not only is it packed with living enzymes but it will also curb cravings for sugar and “treats.” The fat found in the avocados and the coconut meat will help balance blood-sugar levels and curb cravings for sugar. Getting off sugar is hard at first but very doable with the help of adding more fat to your diet. If you can replace your afternoon chocolate “treat” with a fatty, protein-y food, you won’t feel like you’re denying yourself – emotionally or physically.

Banana Avocado Smoothie

Loaded with good fats, potassium, anti-inflammatories, and electrolytes,  this smoothie makes a great post-workout recovery shake. At Hacienda Del Sol we have fresh coconuts to crack open! If you live in a colder climate you might not have the luxury. To substitute the coconut water in this recipe use almond milk, or just water. Although you will be missing out on the electrolytes, the smoothie will still remain delicious and nutritious!

Awakening Your Root Chakra

Kundilini yoga can be life-changing. Its power is believed to come from a reserve of immensely strong, untapped potential within each of us. It is normally depicted as a coiled or sleeping serpent, located in an area at the base of the spine. By safely and gradually stirring this serpent, we can work to clear blockages in our Chakras (energy centres), and begin to feel more balanced and at ease, and exist with more awareness and clarity.

Balancing the Body, Steadying the Scale

  The human body is a wonderfully precise machine that constantly seeks a state of equilibrium or homeostasis. In fact, the body’s need for balance is so great that rather than falling apart, it will bend itself backwards, and even accommodate abuse in order to survive. The greatest threat to this state of equilibrium is toxic input via disastrous dietary choices, an erratic lifestyle, chronic stress, constant stimulation of the senses and emotional trauma. And these are just a few of the things that we subject our bodies to daily and still expect to stay in good health. Contrary to popular beliefs, crash or fad diets, pill popping, calorie counting, and rigorous aerobic exercise are not required to keep body weight in check and systems ticking along like clockwork.An overweight or obese body is a body in distress. But the human body is resilient, and it is possible to reverse the processes that led to this state and re-balance the body’s biochemistry to achieve its normal, comfortable, and optimal weight.
