Whether you have religious believes or not. Easter is a time to get together with friends and family and rejoice.

I don’t think is a coincidence that celebrating resurrection happens at spring time… Let’s take some inspiration from nature!!!

It is the perfect time for a fresh start, don’t you think? so why not start eating like you love yourself?. Here are some ideas of how to show that love:

  • Eat organic for the best you can put in your body specially eggs
  • Eat fresh vegetables and sprouts to help you detox and nourish
  • Avoid sugar and alcohol because you love yourself
  • Get fresh air! to start getting active
  • Practice yoga or gigong to renew and regenerate
  • Relax and just listen to music that you love

Mudra for joy

Here is a great way to fill with joy without any stimulants and is free! Seat comfortably and follow these steps for 10 min:

  • Bend the elbows and open arms to the side.
  • Position hands at the shoulder level with palms facing forward.
  • Bend down the little and ring fingers into the palm.
  • Place your thumb lightly over them.
  • Lift index and middle fingers up (similar to peace sign).
  • Inhale slowly and count to 8.
  • Exhale slowly and count to 8.
  • Smile as you feel the glow of your inner light.

Let me know how you feel after doing this.


Hot cocoa for Easter…

Not sure why is a tradition to get chocolate eggs or bunnies… If you did not get them, be grateful and consider yourself lucky to save yourself from bads fat and refined sugar. Show more of that love for your self and choose a delicious healthy treat instead, like this recipe for a hot cup of cocoa before going to bed:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups  water
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds or raw tahini
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp grounded cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)

Preparation

Put all the ingredients in a vitamix or high speed blender and blend until hot. If you like cinnamon, add a bit to taste.

If you have a regular blender use tahini instead of sesame seeds and warm up on the stove after blending the ingredients.
