How intermediate fasting can benefit you!
There’s no doubt that eating enough is important to our overall health and well-being. Its a must to cross our T’s and dot our I’s when eating a vegan or especially raw diet! Eating is healthy, we all know that, but is eating 3-6 meals per day really healthy? Several recent studies have proven otherwise! It’s just not as simple as putting it into our mouths whenever we feel like it. Today I’m going to teach you the secret that I learned a decade ago that literally has me defying the aging process! I’m going to teach you the proper ways to intermediate fasting that leads to less digestive problems and tons more energy.
 
Here is how I like to intermediate fast!
I choose a six- eight hour window each day to eat in! Yep! That’s it! Now keep in min this can very depending on your schedule! Usually my eating begins around one pm in the afternoon and stop eating by seven pm!
 
ALWAYS keep a food and exercise diary! This will help you to see what best works for you
Once you hit your goal weight you can stop the intermediate fasting if you wish! Something tells me the benefits will be SO amazing that you will stay the course!
 
Why it works! We are naturally hunter gatherers! This is how we were designed to eat! On then off! I myself have chosen a vegan lifestyle, this however works for every eating style including pale, macro-biotic, vegan and raw! Also when your body is in a resting state it has time to repair itself and go into fat burning furnace mode for your morning workout! I would also suggest having your routine every morning start with at least 24oz of lemon water then be sure to get a minimum of 3 more quarts throughout the day.
 
The benefits of intermediate fasting!
Lowers triglycerides
Preserving memory functioning and learning
 Reducing inflammation
 Reducing free radical damage
Normalizing Ghrelin levels known as “the hunger hormone”
 
 
Applying this rule is very simple. We eat approximately 3 large meals a day so why not substitute one of those meals for a juice and then follow it with a fruit meal and a more substantial meal as the sun goes down? It just works! I would recommend if eating fruit during your days of intermediate fasting that you do eat the fruit alone and always on an empty stomach! If you’re ready to give intermittent fasting a try, simply skip breakfast, maybe workout or take a walk instead Be sure and stop eating anything but water three hours before you go to sleep, and restrict your eating to an 8-hour (or less like I do) time window!
 
 
I view intermittent fasting as a complete way of life! NOT a diet! You will notice your body begins to crave healthier options when you do eat! This is because intermediate fasting allows you to clean out on a cellular level! Give it a try and do E-mail me about your results!

I hope this gives you a better idea of how this can work for you!

Remember, I only want the best for you!

Raw vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls! AKA 5 minute cookies!!!

Raw vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls! AKA 5 minute cookies!!!health bites 1
 
Total Time: 5 minutes
 
Yield: 2 dozen bites
 
 
These healthy oatmeal cookie balls are delicious knock off  of oatmeal cookies. I was inspired to make these after watching a video the other day with a young boy (adorable lil guy) eating a store bought health bar! Those are great as long as you read the labels however I prefer to always make my own treats:)The honey is rich in enzymes and all the ingredients are natural and organic!
Ingredients
 
6 dates (pitted)
a few (a small handful) un sulfured dried golden raisins
1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
½ cup organic finely shredded coconut
¾ cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 Cup walnuts (OPTIONAL)
2TB raw honey
2 tsp of each of the following
cinnamon 
maca root powder
holy basil
Instructions
 
Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or a food processor adding the chocolate chips last. Stick the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until the nut mixture has chilled and firmed up slightly.
With damp hands, form 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball, squeezing it until about 1-inch wide and very compact. Chill the cookie balls until ready to serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to snack on throughout the week.
Notes
 
These healthy dessert balls have lots of great ingredients for your skin, hormones, blood sugar and the holy basil powder makes them have a calming effect! Replace the raw honey with maple syrup and you have vegan oatmeal cookies! Be sure and pin these or share them on your social media:)health bites 2

Its my anniversary!

Today is a special anniversary for me:)
Ten years ago I made a pact with myself on this very day to go raw vegan! I never looked back! At the age of 25, I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired!

The first eight years I stayed 100% raw. During the last two years I invited small amounts of cooked food in. 

I DON’T BELIEVE in labels! Not at all! I will say this. I feel best eating a 100% raw diet! It just works for me! It feels good! People tell me I look good and that I GLOW!

Today I made another pack with myself! I made a pack to place myself first. I made a pack to begin creating my raw master pieces every weekend so I’m able to stay raw. 
sxWhen you find something that truly works for you….you just, DO IT!

Ten beautiful years ago, I found my calling and I ended a cycle of abuse that took the form of an eating disorder that almost killed me.

Today, I’m proud to be known as “The Detox Queen”, “Raw food celebrity chef” and the “Queen of juice”! I earned every single one of those titles and wear them proud!

What appeared to be “a crazy fad” in my small town of Ohio has become my life’s calling!

I truly believe that our health is our wealth! You better bet that I’m here to get the word out and to change the World! One juice at a time♡♡♡

What I ate today on my raw anniversary:)
Watermelon rind juice, fresh local raspberries, date melon salad, coconut turmeric wraps and raw dark chocolate:) Food fit for a Queen♡♡♡SEXY FOOD
