Refreshing thoughts on Thursday!

Sarah Fragoso is probably my hero in the paleo world….with the balanced bites ladies coming in on a very close runner up!  That’s for the powerful paleo gals!  
As for the guys….well…Sarah’s podcast partner and friend, Jason Seib is probably my hero with Mark Sisson right after him!
It speaks to the heart of what these two stand for with the Paleo lifestyle.  And it speaks to what I try to not only live but to express to so many!
I don’t think they can talk enough about people (especially women) being metabolically broken.  My thoughts are that when a person is metabolically broken they are also mentally and possibly spiritually broken.
After all how do we get to be metabolically broken?  We get there because we are feeling desperate.  A person isn’t liking what they see in the mirror and how they feel.  They get desperate and go to extremes.  
My thoughts on getting desperate is great if a person chooses to kick themselves in the butt and really hit their nutrition hardcore, thus in return having them lose a bunch of weight real fast….but then stick with it!
Have that quick start be the turning point to make real life changing choices for the longevity, for the journey of life. 
Thirst to be more!
Be thankful for ALL that God is.   
Thankful He is always present!
Thirst to know Him better. 
Thirst to serve Him better.  

As you are thankful and thirsty for Him you are able to learn some amazing ways to be thrifty! 
Teresa had to have thirsted for our Lord! She had to have thanked him for all He is!
Thrifty tip for the day:
Use coconut oil for your face and hand cream.  You’ll save sooooo much and actually reap health benefits.   Plus the added bonus of not having to wash the lotion off when you cook!
I would imagine if I designated just one jar for my hand and face lotion it would last me the entire year for $10!!!!
I use to spend $35 on face cream every 3 months and $10 on body lotion every 2-3 months. 
Go forward today thirsting for God…
Thanking Him….
And honoring Him by being thrifty!
Hugs and prayers,

Tasty Tuesday: Snack on Fat!

No really!!!

Having a craving?  Feeling sluggish? Need a quick snack to get you to the next meeting, class, task, or just because?
Pick a great quality high fat snack to not only create satiety, but to create energy, and to turn off the insulin spiking!
My top ten fat snacks!
1:  1/2 avacados with salt squeezed lemon or lime.  Dig in! (Sometimes I will sprinkle a little bit of a hot pepper like that yummy rooster sauce!)
2:   Tbs of almond butter, tbs of coconut flakes, tbs of cocoa nibs.   Mix all together for a creamy crunchy delight.  (Some may want it to be a bit sweeter so a drop or 2 of a liquid stevia)
3:  tbs of almond butter, tbsp of sunflower butter, sprinkle with cinnamon. 
4: olives
5: macadamia nuts sprinkled with salt and ceyene.  
6:  macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, cocoa nibs mixed together.  Like a trail mix.  A variation is all the same but toss it lightly with some coconut oil sprinkle with cinnamon and roast it in oven maybe 500 for 5-7 minutes.   But really watch it cause of the coconut flakes.  
7: bacon!!!!
8: bacon with almond butter!
9: the first snack of avocado with bacon sprinkled on it.  
10:  number six snack with bacon crumpled in it!
How can you possibly go wrong with bacon!
If you want to understand more about the science of fat and how it’s not fat that makes us fat (the right fats that is)…..check out resources like:
Jimmy Moore – Keto Clarity
Johnathan Bailor – The Calorie Myth
Mark Sisson – Marks Daily Apple
John Kiefer – Carb Nite
And of course my favorites on:
Every Day Paleo
Balanced Bites
So now go get a scoop of clarified butter and sprinkle it with salt or cinnamon and enjoy!   Lol!!!
Hugs and blessings always,
K 🙂
