Don’t let this happen to you!

Hi lovely,

Life can change in a blink of an eye! Once the picket fence goes up & you relax into what is, something beyond your control knocks it down. Be grateful anyway! For within every imperfect moment, there will be moments of pure & utter bliss such as this. Andrea Cox


We woke at the crack of dawn on Saturday to get to the farmers market in Mexico's wine country on time. Grateful for this yoga zen space that was dug out by hand for me!

zenroom

This weekend was such a reminder to not take things for granted! Take our health for example. I felt great when I headed down to Mexico with the "man~pan~ion"! We went wine tasting and even though I don't drink, I was having a blast! We LOVED the new farmers market! {YAY}!Then, all of the sudden illness struck! I got a terrible ear, nose and throat infection! I don't even know how or where it came from! I'm the healthiest gal I know! In fact, I'm probably your healthiest friend too! I went down and I went down HARD! I was sneezing and even lost my voice all day today! 

wine tasting

This sudden illness got me thinking how precious and valuable our health is! I get calls almost daily from people with every ailment under the sun! It makes me feel sad that I can't help everyone! After all, there are only so many hours in the day! I cannot imagine falling ill with something MUCH worse than an ear infection! Can you?

Tonight, as I nurse my self back to health and watch the "man~pan~ion" attempt to make sautéed squash in coconut oil for the first time, I'll be thinking of something special I can do for all of you! Something to help even MORE of you with whatever ails you!

Sometimes, we need a good reminder of what it feels like to be utterly helpless and unable to care for ourselves like I am tonight.

Blessings ~ Don't forget to drink your green juice!

95% Of the population does this!

Hi beautiful:) 

If you're like me you probably look in the mirror at least once per month and say "I should probably get into shape"! 

body

The truth is the majority of people do! Studies show at least 95% of the population! WOW! Even those who are deemed "fit" already! 

I wanted to share with you a few tips that have worked for both me and my clients! Try to incorporate them into your daily routine and watch what happens! 

My Top 5 Tips to stay in shape year round!

1) Move your body! I've been skipping my yoga and BOY OH BOY do I feel it! That being said, I've still hit the gym every morning! I never let my fitness go! In fact, I've been known to do some crazy workouts and headstands while traveling too! Hotel! No problem! 

Always move your body! Every day! 

2) Map out a plan! Ya know that yoga above? The class I've been skipping? You best believe that when I return from Mexico on Monday that class will be the first place I go! I decided to right it down in my planner to make certain it happens! Why? Because once we right something down its engrained in us! We feel a strong pull to complete the task!!

Even if you jot things down in a $2 notebook, its better than not keeping track of your goals at all! Try it! Let me know how it works for you!

3) Eat real food! Below is my brunch! Blueberries, bee pollen, coconut cream and yes, even coconut palm sugar! You'll have to guess what the "green powder" is! 

mmmmmmmm

I eat this meal at least 3 times per week! On other days I'll have bananas with almond butter and maca or, I'll make a raw cereal! I find for me, pairing fruit with a bit of raw fat is a beauty generator! Try to keep your food as unpackaged and un processed as possible.

 4) Seek help when needed! You know as well as I do when you hit a wall and don't see a way out! One of the biggest mistakes we can make is not reaching out for help when we tip the scales or just don't feel well! Whether its with me or another holistic detox specialist, one should never be afraid to seek help! 

5) Take a walk after dinner! You would be amazed at the difference a 15 minute moderately passed walk can make in the way you feel after a meal! Its also great bonding time with your children, pets and or your partner! 


I hope this news letter helps you develop better daily habits! If it does, feel free to share! Or, If you are reading this and know someone that can potentially benefit from this, please SHARE this! They will be thankful and so will I!:)

 I'm accepting five new clients in the month of September for coaching! I'll be sending out the details on Sunday! Get excited! If you've always wanted to work one on one with me, Sunday will be your chance to strike while the iron is HOT!

Is this popular food making you gain weight?

Hi there beautiful! If you're like me, you work to stay in shape! You take things like your yoga practice and gym time seriously! In fact, you schedule it in!

fitbit

 

If your like 90% of the women that come to me for coaching with everything from skin issues, weight that just won't budge to recovery after going through chemo, you most likely consume this popular food in your daily smoothie, spread over bread or sprinkled on your soups and salads!

Whats the food I'm talking about? What food causes women to gain weight rapidly and if done in over abundance an wreak havoc on ones hormones? NUTS! YEP! You guessed it, nuts! You can soak them, sprout them do whatever the heck you want with them but mark my words, NO WOMAN I have ever met can eat a serving size of nuts and stop! Honestly, ask yourself if you stop after eating ONE Brazil nuts or just twelve almonds? I bet the answer is NO!

Below are my top three reasons for limiting my nut intake to no more than one~two servings per day! Not twelve, but one~two!

1} Some nuts are estrogenic ~ this means they stimulate the body to produce more estrogen than it already does. Estrogen is great and yes, both men and women need it but NO, we don't need to over eat on foods that bring on more estrogen!

2} They are difficult to digest! One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see new vegans and raw folders do is to go out and buy gourmet vegan and raw food books with all of these fancy, heavily laden nut dishes in them! Good lord, I honestly prefer people to rethink this fallacy!

3} They are not food combinable! This means they contain both proteins and carbs with fat! Therefore they are ONLY to be used in conjunction with a green meal or with dried fruit in moderate amounts. To be truthful, they are best eaten alone as a snack! If you can keep it to one serving! :)

What I had for brunch today! Nut~less cereal!

12 oz of banana date milk

7 dried dates

1 fresh banana

dried plantains

dried bananas on top!

5 reasons to drink coconut water & a side of me you haven’t seen!

Hi there beautiful!

I hope all of you had a lovely holiday! I whipped up a lil spread for William & Oliver {our lovely care taker & friend}. The menu consisted of the following.

Fresh squeezed orange juice 
Young Thai coconuts 
Jackfruit 
Fresh watermelon 
Loquats 
A big salad :-) 
My special anti-inflammatory guacamole 
Organic salsa 
Baked root vegetables {butternut squash} 
Non-GMO corn tortillas 
Raw chocolate bark

4th of July!

It was a beautiful day with the ocean, Oliver & the doggies!


Today I wanted to share with you my all time favorite way to hydrate! Its with coconut water! Notice that its not one of those white young Thai coconuts! This is do to so many of them being dipped in formaldehyde! Thats right! I avoid them like the plague! Here is why I LOVE to drink coconut water!

 1) It's high in beneficial magnesium and potassium!

2) It contains copper! An essential mineral you don't here about to often that everyone needs!

3) Coconut water contains A LOT of antioxidants to ward off free radicals!

4) Got cytokines? Whats that you ask? Cytokines are compounds (found in coconut water) that slow the aging process and have been known to fight off cancerous cells.

5) Its a sweet treat thats actually beneficial and low cal!

 I hope this article entices you to begin drinking more coconut water! Just be sure and get it from a reputable source! I never trust a tetra pac or a white coconut unless I'm in the Caribbean!


A side of me you haven't seen! 

I'm hoping you find benefit from the above information. I love coconut water and drink it daily! 

I wanted to share with you a place where I am very candid! It's a side of me you won't find on my Youtube channel or here in my news letter. Its called Snapchat! Its a free social media platform for sharing 10 second videos and photos! Here is a little clip of a day and a half on my Snapchat show at the bottom of this email! Enjoy!

Oh and of course, here is the link to follow me there! I can't wait to see you over there! Be sure and send me a message to say hi!

Here is my personal cell number….

Hi beautiful :) I've got some great news! As you may already know I accept 5 new clients every other month for coaching! I thought I had the month of July fully booked however I've had someone who unfortunately cannot make it this month. As unfortunate as that is, it opens up the door for one more client to receive my primer VIP coaching over the next month ~ YES! 

If you are tired of feeling sick and tired! If you are ready to release the final 10, 20 or even 30 lbs of toxic waste from your body {FOR GOOD}! Or, if you simply want to dive into degenerative disease prevention by learning hands on how to detox on a cellular level, NOW is the time!

This will go VERY quickly! In fact, I've scheduled another email reminder to go out tomorrow morning however the spot will most likely be filled by then!

That being said, lets move forward right now with you taking the next step!

Here is the best way to get in touch with me! Send an email to

Andrea@thehealthyhaven.net

All emails are pre screened by Annabelle and then narrowed down to the people she feels are in the most need of my help! Lets see if you're a good fit for this life changing coaching program that has already changed the lives of thousands of people!

I cannot wait for our face to face initial Skype session and I cannot wait for you too have my personal cell phone number at your fingertips!

I started the day with a liter of lemon water followed by 32 oz of beet/celery/kale juice!
