Looking beyond the food - Take this 3 - step approach to a more BALANCED Body.
#1. (Spirit) A great a stretch helps to move things along both inside and out. Aim to begin first thing in the AM; it also helps to clear your mind and increase circulation.
#2. (MIND) Take time to chew - 26 times is the recommended amount- it helps to truly break down and release nutrients into the digestive tract & bloodstream & it helps you feel more at ease and focused as you mindfully appreciate each bite.
#3. (BODY) Drink plenty of water; aim to drink at least 12 ounces - 20 minutes before a meal. This will help with hard to digest foods & increase the blood flow to your brain.
