Golden Milk - The Key To A Good Night Sleep

I started making Golden Milk, which has the key powerful ingredient of turmeric. Turmeric literally is known to help almost everything. Here are just a few things that it can help with


  •  Anti-inflammatory 
  • Boosts immunity
  • Anti-cancer properties
  • Depression
  • Regulates blood pressure 
  • Improve memory
  • Gall-bladder
  • Improves IBS and IBD
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Menopause
  • Reduces arsenic
  • The list goes on and on. Check out a huge list here with data to back it up.








When using turmeric the cucumin's bioavailabity (the magic inside the turmeric) 1000 times greater when black pepper is consumed during the same time. So please make sure you have black pepper when consuming turmeric. Like always with anything new, start small!

The golden milk I make consists of the ingredients below. With a busy household of 4 kids and a hubby I decided to purchase a turmeric mixture that already has black pepper and some other anti inflammatory ingredients. You can certainly make your own with the ingredients below, however I personally use Gaia Turmeric Boost restore, to have a slightly more Chai flavor in my Golden milk and it tastes amazing!

I make all of this in a pot on the stove. I bring it to a slight bowl and mix it well. Here's my concoction for a small cup for two

Water  8  oz
Hemp or Coconut Milk  8oz
Coconut oil  - 1 - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric & Black Pepper (from the turmeric boost) 2  tsp
Cinnamon  - sprinkle
Honey (added at the end)  1-2 tsp to taste


Since making this delicious Golden milk, my husband who normally wakes up every single night for a few hours has slept like a baby! Now asks me to make this for him 1-2 hours before bed and not only does he sleep through the night like a rock, it knocks him out and he wakes up with a ton of energy. If this can work for him, it can probably work for most people. LOL!

Here is a video recipe by Dr. Arjan Khalsa to show you how to make the paste and use this paste throughout the week, I suggest you watch. It's a bit different than how I make it but it it's perfect for those who already have the ingredients and are ready to make it now!






Cheers! Would love to hear how your Golden Milk turns out and see how you feel when implementing this wonderful beverage in to your life!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


**BY POPULAR DEMAND WE ARE DOING THE SQUAT CHALLENGE AGAIN ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2019**




Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below!
