Meditation: Healthy for your Heart and Soul

“Our bodies are our greatest teachers …. We have to take the time to slow down , and have the COURAGE to hear what is going on within us – physically, energetically and emotionally…. BREATHE into it, and TRUST!” – Angela Howell, Yoga teacher, Hacienda del Sol Meditation. The word can make some people nervous, as there are still a lot of questions surrounding this ancient practice. Meditation, and its perfect pairing of yoga, both produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind; of the upmost importance in our typically fast-paced lives! While many of us still associate mediation with the image of a yogi seated silently, cross legged with eyes closed, anything can be considered a meditative experience so long as it is done with presence. Yoga, a physical activity that involves moving one’s body through a series of postures designed specifically to bring space and ease to places of tension and stress, is a moving mediation with the purpose of uniting, or “yoking” body with mind.

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.

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.

Puttanesca Sauce over Zucchini Pasta

This recipe is a variation to the pesto pasta that we serve on our menu at Hacienda del Sol. Both are delicious detox-friendly recipes and you’ll be amazed how much the texture of the zucchini pasta resembles real pasta! If you’re used to eating heavy wheat pasta…..you won’t miss it at all! Above all this pasta is easy to digest, which is what makes it such a great detox recipe. The more easily a meal can be digested the less energy and resources the body has to waste on digestion, rather than helping your body renew and cleanse.
