Are You Adding Toxins While Cleaning?

It is amazing how once you start to live consciously regarding food you open your eyes up to everything.  The toxins in products we use in our homes are almost as mind blowing as what is sprayed on our food and added to cosmetics.  Most of these products filled with known ingredients that harm us.  Ingredients that cause illness and many forms of cancer.

This year I was lucky enough to attend Shiftcon which is a huge eco bloggers convention. The weekend was off the hook on the learning tip and it also had the best vendor area ever.  I met high quality vendors whose products are so what the PBL lifestyle needed.   One stand out company is Grab GreenA non-toxic plant and mineral based cleaning product line that is not only conscious, but offers amazing cleaning products! 

Many times eco products leave residue & do not 'lather' like we have grown to expect.  This is not the case with Grab Green. The line exceeds Team PBL expectations with every use and cleans better than those harmful toxic traditional products.

The use of essential oils in their products adds that extra nirvana

that speaks to the Team PBL soul.

Friday's Friend & Grown-Up Back-to-School Recipes

S86A0358.jpg

By: V Capaldi At this point I am pretty sure we all know who is my hero, mentor and friend that provided the tools for me to get my life back!  Yup, Dr. Terry Wahls and The Wahls Protocol!  Long before The Wahls Protocol I became a Wahls Warrior.  For over 1400+ days I have been a faithful, devoted and successful miracle under the guidelines for wellness outlined in the best-selling book, The Wahls Protocol by Dr. Terry Wahls.

In-Person Symposium 2015

This wellness bible is available in both hardback and paperback and

I truly believe it is a must for every household's library.

Many of the concepts, idea's and components of the protocol are lifestyle based on conscious awareness that involve far more than food.  This life changing book explains how and why we got here regarding health and wellness and in addition informs us how to live, eat and move based on our cellular level needs.  An approach like the Wahls Protocol puts you in the driver seat and removes many of the victim filled outcomes the majority of us live with.

In fact 1 in 3 Americans are legally disabled with The Wahls Protocol

poised to change this without drugs or high healthcare costs.

Healthcare Bible

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of seeing 1st hand the power of Dr. Wahls, her family and The Wahls Protocol teachings to change lives beyond any healthcare science I have ever witnessed.  None of what took place at the symposium was based around consumer driven principles or sponsored by a drug company as in traditional healthcare.  Instead all was based around accessibility with self-care tools of empowerment shared by the buckets!

Mason Jar Meals Rule

Only because I am an ass would this matter so here it goes...I am sick of Back-to-School being about kids only!

What about us as grown-ups? Do we not matter?

This time of year has always been significant my entire life. As a kid, parent and even later in life yet no one addresses what this means to anyone but kids. Well I have had enough and present: Grown-up Back-to-School Mason Jar meals.

Thanks to my good friends at Breaking Muscle for helping me to make this happen!  Click here for recipes of yum!  Enjoy and stay tuned more recipes coming in September!

Friday Friend & Slow Cooking Artichokes

S86A0545.jpg

By: V Capaldi Last week I missed the Friday Friend feature because I was in Iowa at the Dr. Terry Wahls Symposium and I apologize.  Tried for a Sunday make-up day, but that did not happen either.  Such a test of 'riding the wave' for this Type "A" gal.

I am uber excited to talk about this weeks Friday Friend for 2 reasons.  The 1st is because I love being a Roll Model and sharing the power of Yoga Tune Up (YTU) Therapy Balls!  The YTU balls are one of the most important tools in my wellness "Bag of Tricks" and support my program no matter where or when I need them. I have been an avid Roll Model for over 5 years and my body and person are grateful.

Just as I stalked Dr. Wahls about my amazing healing journey following The Wahls Protocol I stalked Jill Miller the founder of YTU to share with her my healing story of movement using the YTU balls.  The power of self myo-fascial release to help me to "work better in my body" are beyond description and should be experienced by each of you 1st hand!

Self Massage w/ Jill Miller

I encourage you all to click hereand invest the $15 for a set of YTU balls and get rolling. Literally at the symposium I gave a talk and so many of you were singing the praises of how well your body felt in just that short time. 

Another way to get to know the power of the balls is to invest in a copy of The Roll Modelby Jill Miller.  I am proud to be featured  sharing my story of healing using YTU.  This book has photographs that take the guess work out of the poses and I find it to be the  perfect compliment and very helpful as a YTU fan.   A bible on wellness actually!

Slow Cooker Lemon Infused Artichokes

Can I just tell you this rules and is delicious beyond words!

What a nice transitional dish from our grilled summer foods to the slow cooking of the fall and winter season.  I have been making artichokes non stop these last few weeks and each time reminded of my family and Italian culture.

Growing up my maternal grandmother made killer Italian stuffed artichoke that inspired the recipe in my Paleo PerfectHolidays e-cookbook.  Enjoy this new version of one of my cultural family favorites!

Ingredients:

3 Artichokes trimmed and prepped (snip off pointy ends using scissors trimming tops and bottom)

1 Lemon

1 Bay leaf

1/4 cup Kasandrino's EVO

Pink Himalayan sea salt

Fresh ground black pepper

1 cup of bone broth or filtered water

Tin Star ghee or Brown Butter melted

Slow Cooker or stove top for 25 minutes covered

Directions:

Place trimmed and cleaned artichoke in Crock pot with 1/4 inch fluid on bottom. Add bay leaf, squeeze lemon, S&P drizzling with EVO cooking slow for 4 hours. Serve with melted Ghee of your choice. Enjoy!

"Believe that you can and you will." Buddha Teas

A few weeks ago I started a feature called Friday Friends and it has been so well received I am going to extend it to a blog post each week! Each week I will try and offer a new recipe or food idea while highlighting a few of my favorite Friday Friends.

Friday Friends are picked randomly by PBL and will be across all conscious living idea's.  Anything that will help us along our journey is free game as a Friday Friend.  The end.

BUDDHA TEAS

This company and their website have taken tea to a whole new level.  Literally you can spend so much time getting lost in the wonderful land of tea devouring every written word on their site imagining how magnificent each tea must taste.  I am glad my 1st choice I allowed the folks at Buddha Tea to decide for me.  They asked me what my preferences were regarding tea and delivered a delicious tea that blew me away: Papaya Leaf Tea!

The Papaya Leaf is full of antioxidants and a great source of Vitamin C which is a huge bonus and it tastes delicious!

Beyond taste Buddha Tea hits the ball out of the park informing us of all the benefits of each tea. In addition they use only organic tea's, bleach free bags and each bag comes with a wonderful inspirational quote.  They offer so many teas there is no doubt one has your name on it.  I highly recommend you give Buddha Tea's a try and check them out.  I am pretty sure you will never look back at tea's commonly sold at most grocery stores.  My story. The End.

Pumpkin BBQ Sauce

This BBQ sauce is a home run of tasty goodness!

I literally have had this at least with one meal a day since last Sunday!  I was having dinner with my friend Hima, owner of TinStar Foods, and dry rubbed my ribs, but wanted a little kick so I whipped this recipe up and feel in love.

Enjoy and share your uses for this delicious sugar and gluten free BBQ sauce!  Happy BBQ'ing!

Ingredients:

Directions:

Throw all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until blended. Adding water to desired consistency. I prefer my BBQ sauce thick and 1/3 cup of water seemed to work perfectly for this smiling fool. Experiment with what suites your palate and enjoy!
