"Souping" Book by Alison Velazquez - ideas for different combinations of ingredients to optimize health (ideal if you have a vitamix or bullet)

 

Today we covered a little variety, what a 1 on 1 session is like, resistance stretching with friend with parkinsons as well as how to find/create variety in menu with some simple tricks through ethnic flavor profiles.  Also, thanks to Nicole for sharing the deliciousness of a delicata squash and we shared a fun way to use/prep spaghetti squash.

Today we did a metabolic questionnaire to discover our body's basic food ratios. We discussed finding and fine tuning our macro nutrient, understanding what category we may fit into as a starting point and how to best optimize. What are the key signals in our body when we have balanced well or when we haven't.

Today a heartfelt discussion of fatigue, election fatigue, racism, leadership, motivation- tips to strengthen your personal integrity muscle  & ways to celebrate your success.
The motivation person's name I was referencing is Mel Robbins
