MOXIFY YOUR FOOD EXPERIENCE
LET'S REDESIGN HOW WE GO ABOUT MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT FOOD
Since you cleaned out your kitchen pantry last week, of unwanted badditives,from last weeks articlein the Naples Herald, linked here: Trying to Eat Better in 2017? Start Here, lets talk about what to add to increase your success towards your health goals. Based on Blue Zones, we listed the primary diet staples from five Blue Zones:
Ikara, Greece: Greens, lemons, eggplant, potato, herbs, chickpeas, black-eyed peas, olive oil, honey & coffee
Sardinia, Italy: Tomatoes, artichokes, fennel, onions, almonds, durum semolina, barley, olive oil, wine
Nicoya, Costa Rica: Papaya, bananas, mango, winter and summer squash, cabbage, corn, black beans, limes
Okinawa, Japan: Shitake Mushrooms, sweet potatoes, green onions, garlic, bitter melon, seaweed, tofu, brown rice, turmeric, green and black tea
Loma Linda, California: Beans, bell peppers, broccoli, berries, avocado, nuts, oats, whole grains, seitan, tempeh
In produce lets seek out snacking options (the cleaner you eat, the easier it is for your body to process it, so you're hungry sooner) like apples, clementines, dates, grape tomatoes, figs, etc. These foods should start being beautifully displayed and left out on the table or counter where they sell themselves. Other great snacking choices that require refrigeration are baby cucumbers, radishes, fresh cauliflower, broccoli, watermelon, pineapple, etc. Key here is that when you get home with them, prep them for eating immediately then keep them in containers at the front edge of the shelf so that’s the first thing you see (remember we aren't restricting the bad stuff, we are literally just crowding it out!) I also keep smaller whole cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge, they are an easy grab and go and quick base/side for lunch or dinner.
To the freezer section, lets look for organic spinach, kale, brown rice, garbanzo beans (not entirely sure how widely available these are to be honest, I get them frozen organic here from Stahlbush farms the frozen line looks like it has paper bag packaging.)I eat them frozen, like eating nuts with less fat, thawed in salads or added to soups, rice, hummus, etc., assorted berries, squash (yes, its easy to cook, but if it's constantly put off because its a pain to prep, then go frozen. It can't help you if its not in you!)

PARENTSPEAK: What’s Wrong with How We Talk to Our Children—and What to Say Instead
Jennifer Lehr, author of Parentspeak, is deeply respectful of children while also having a powerful understanding of the influence of words. An incredible, must listen to interview. Here book is available here and a link to her WallStreet journal article is below. Enjoy!
Parentspeak is about compliance—and that often keeps us from understanding the feelings, motivations, thoughts and behavior of our children. Rather than teaching them to communicate and problem solve, we are essentially teaching them to obey.
I know how I’d feel if my boss said, “Jennifer, can you thank Keith for listening to our presentation?” I’d feel demeaned and resentful, and I imagine Jules felt no different. Essentially, I was teaching her that because she’s young, she’s subject to my control. And that how I look to others is more important than her dignity.
