The Power of Giving Compassionate Touch

By Shai Plonski

The internal equivalent to oxygen, what we need in order to survive is love… Human relationships exist to produce love as surely as a lack of oxygen will kill us, so will a lack of love.” ~Marianne Williamson, Return to Love: A Reflection on A Course in Miracles

When I was 33 years old, I got dumped after a five-year relationship where we were engaged to be married. I was blindsided by it. It hurt about as badly as anything else I had experienced up till then, except for the day my dad died.

It was a Saturday afternoon at the start of a long weekend, so that gave me exactly three days to ‘get over it’ enough to be able to return to work. I was currently in the middle of leading a Thai yoga massage teacher training program with students who had come from around the world. It’s not as if I could call in sick.

The rest of the weekend was a blur. About the only thing I remember was an inner voice telling me that now, more than ever, my personal practice was key. Meditate, get on my yoga mat, learn from inspiring teachers and remember to breathe.

I showed up that first day back with a heavy and vulnerable heart, but then I did what I had been doing that whole month, not to mention most of the previous seven years. I engaged in the practice of compassionate touch. I taught what I knew to the best of my ability, let the moment take over, and somehow got through the day.

Nine years later as I look back, I realize it was then that I really knew that with Thai yoga massage I was onto something special. This was more than a form of bodywork, it was a spiritual practice. It was a way to connect with people and with the beauty of life in a way that could help me through the hard times, just as much as it could help celebrate the joy of it all.

The Heart of Compassionate Touch

This is a massage which is founded on a platform of compassionate touch. The only prerequisites are to to engage in meditation and a metta (loving kindness) practice. From there we learn techniques that come from the core where we use our whole body to give. This way, we get to take care of ourselves while helping our partner through a heavenly flow where the best of yoga meets massage.

The very definition of a great massage experience is that it needs to be at least as good to give as it is to receive. This turns the notion of balance into something much greater than can be measured on a scale. The kind of balance this beneficial practice brings is to help elevate one another. What that ends up producing between the two of us often leaves people speechless from how good it feels and what it means to connect on a whole other level. The idea that ‘we are one’ becomes an incredible and undeniable lived experience.

OK Go is a rock band that has made some of the most creative videos ever. In their song, The One Moment, they sing:

There is nothing more lovely, there’s nothing more profound, than the certainty that all of this will end. So open your arms to me, and this will be the one moment that matters, and this will be the one thing we remember, and this will be the reason to have been here and this will be the one moment that matters at all.”

To have the kind of exchange with another person where we experience that kind of depth and truth is priceless. It impacts us on all kinds of levels and that is the kind of quality that is available through compassionate touch.

Massage People You Care About

But you don’t have to be a professional to reach this kind of experience. The secret truth is that we are all already experts in touch. It’s the first sensation we use from the day we were born- to create a relationship with the present moment, with our loved ones, and the world that surrounds us. By the time we reach adolescence most of us may have forgotten its value and power, but that doesn’t mean that knowledge has gone anywhere. We can access it anytime we want.

In giving massage, we tap into the truth that through compassionate touch we are afforded direct access to safety, love, abundance and connectedness. It brings us into deep communion with each other and with ourselves in the healthiest of ways. Your partner on the receiving end gets to feel their stress and pain melt while you get a direct experience of bliss.

It is why, in all honesty I’m on a mission to share this knowledge with yogis, meditators, martial artists and really anyone on a spiritual path. It’s because the power of massage at home between loved ones is often overlooked as a way to help provide for a quality life, incredible happiness and support. It is a way to build a bridge and take the benefits of your practice and share it in a most profound way and to shift from the head to the heart; both giving and receiving.

Yet it is something that is totally accessible to anyone with an afternoon to spare to tap into your own natural ability to touch what this is all about. Giving this kind of touch isn’t tiring or hard work, it is a taste of freedom and universal love.

And if it speaks to you, then perhaps you’ll have discovered a new way to help you through some of life’s profound certainties.

Healthy Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Looking for the perfect dip for your fruit? This Peanut Butter Dip only takes 5 minutes to whip up with a handful of simple ingredients. The base of this dip is a natural peanut butter, making it as healthy as it is yummy. It is a great addition for any fruit tray you are making.

Dipping an apple into healthy peanut butter dip

A fruit dip with no added sugar

This healthy peanut butter fruit dip is seriously so easy to make it’s ridiculously good. Just four simple ingredients, perfect for all your apples that will be falling off your trees as fall gets closer. Did I mention that this fruit dip has no added sugar so it’s healthy and your kids will think they are eating a dessert?

A simple dip to make with only 4 ingredients

Add your favorite all natural peanut butter, coconut milk, honey (omit if your peanut butter is already sweetened) and vanilla together in a bowl.   Whisk together until it is smooth.  I like to use a crunchy peanut butter, but feel free to use a creamy if that is what your children like. Cut your apples and pears into wedges and bananas into slices. Dip away! See, I told you that it was simple!

Cutting up fruit to eat with healthy peanut butter dipProvides protein and healthy fats

A piece of fruit added with this dip is an easy and yummy after school snack.  It provides both protein and healthy fats, served along with your fruit.  This will give your kids the energy they need after school while doing homework, and it will keep them more satisfied until dinner time unlike typical sugary after school snacks.  A balanced snack should always contain a fruit/veggie, a protein and a grain.  You could dip pretzels, or even crackers in this dip also!

13 Ways to Lose Weight on A Dollar

Good news: Shedding pounds doesn’t have to mean shelling out $10 a day for green juice. Instead, take a smart, practical approach to losing weight by prepping meals at home, eating smaller portions and shopping wisely for nutritious, affordable ingredients.

That’s where this list comes in, highlighting items that offer the most nutrition for the money in five key categories: protein, vegetables, fruit, dairy and grains. Get to know these all-stars and stock your kitchen without emptying your bank account.

EGGS

Poached for breakfast, hard-boiled for lunch or cooked in a healthy spinach omelet at dinner, eggs are affordable, protein-packed and versatile. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines removed language that limited egg intake because new research has shown the cholesterol in eggs doesn’t necessarily affect blood cholesterol. That means unless you have special dietary concerns, it’s fine to enjoy one egg per day or a couple of three-egg omelets per week.

2 of

LENTILS

Packed with fiber, this quick-cooking legume is an affordable pantry staple that pairs well with healthy veggies. Black beans, chickpeas, black-eyed peas or kidney beans are also great choices; you’ll save more if you skip the canned variety and soak and cook them yourself.

3 of

CHICKEN AND TURKEY

For a lean protein staple, reach for poultry. Buy whole, bone-in cuts for the best price. Removed the skin and use low-fat cooking methods such as poaching to maximize health benefits. Ground turkey is also a smart, affordable choice. Skip processed deli versions of the meat which are high in salt and additives — and also tend to be more pricey.

4 of

WALNUTS

With lots of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids and a lower price than almonds or pecans, look for walnuts that can be purchased raw and in bulk. Store extra in the freezer to extend their shelf life. Roast them quickly for a delicious snack as-is. Walnuts are also a perfect addition to oatmeal, cereal, salads, stir-fries or even a simple pasta with greens.

5 of

DARK GREEN VEGGIES

Broccoli, collards and kale are packed with vitamins and minerals, yet cost less than many other veggies. They’re also hearty enough to last in the fridge unwashed for 3–5 days, meaning it’s less likely they’ll go bad before you can use them. When buying greens, including romaine and spinach, purchase whole heads instead of bagged or packaged clamshell versions to save money.

6 of

CARROTS

An amazing nutrition bargain, carrots are packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals. Buy regular carrots in bulk for the best price and go beyond the stick: grate them into salads or try a side dish of steamed coins or sweet, whole-roasted carrots.

7 of

SWEET POTATOES

With more fiber than white potatoes and a natural sweetness that makes them easy to enjoy without tons of added butter and sour cream, the super-affordable tuber is a great choice for building a healthy diet while saving money. Try them simply mashed, roasted or sliced into healthy baked “fries.”

8 of

BANANAS

Bananas are available everywhere, from the corner market to Costco. This fiber-rich, potassium-packed fruit is perfect for breakfast and as an on-the-go snack. If you have trouble with the fruit turning spotty and brown, unpeel and freeze them to use later in homemade banana bread, healthy smoothies or banana “ice cream.”

9 of

CANTALOUPE

These fragrant melons cost far less per serving than berries and most other fruit; plus, they last much longer. One melon provides enough that you can eat it at breakfast, toss it into a lunchbox, mix it into a fruit smoothie — and still have half left for the next day. Honeydew or watermelon are also great choices.

10 of

YOGURT

Buy large containers of plain, unsweetened yogurt and the cost per serving sinks instantly (avoid higher-priced individual serving-size yogurts). Calcium-rich and packed with probiotics that improve digestive health, plain yogurt is great in smoothies, homemade dips like tzatziki or even as a low-calorie substitute for mayonnaise or sour cream.

11 of

COTTAGE CHEESE

Low in fat and high in calcium, cottage cheese might be one of the most old-fashioned diet foods, but it’s ready to be rediscovered. If you’re watching sodium, check for that as content varies by brand. Alongside toast at breakfast, with fruit for a mid-morning snack, as a side dish for a healthy lunch or as a topping for a healthy, low-calorie rye flatbread with a dash of paprika, it’s a winner.

12 of

OATMEAL

Packed with healthy fiber and important nutrients like B vitamins, oats are affordable and healthy. Buy old-fashioned rolled oats in bulk to get the best bang for your buck. Add a spoonful of chia or hemp seeds for an extra protein boost to your morning oatmeal or whip up healthy oven-baked granola at home.

13 of

BARLEY

Hulled, whole-grain barley has the highest fiber content of all grains plus a low glycemic index and also costs less than most other whole grains. With its rich, earthy flavor, what’s not to like? For those eating gluten-free, brown rice is the best alternative.

19 Delicious Ways the World Cooks Pork Shoulder

We love cooking with pork shoulder. It’s a versatile and economical cut that takes deliciously to roasting, braising, stewing, and slow cooking. Low, moist heat turns the meat so tender and succulent, it just falls away from the bone and practically melts in the mouth. In the U.S., pork shoulder is the perfect pick for pulled pork. Home cooks from other countries and cultures, of course, have their own delicious ways of preparing pork shoulder. Here are just some of our favorite recipes from around the world featuring pork shoulder — including a couple Southern-style pulled pork recipes!

1. Crispy Pork Carnitas

Cubes of fragrant, spiced pork are slowly cooked in olive oil until they’re crispy on the outside, soft and succulent on the inside. “Bust some up on a warm tortilla, drizzle with braising liquid, top with a little salsa, onion, and cilantro, and you’re probably enjoying the world’s best taco,” says Chef John.

 

2. Cantonese Barbecued Pork

You’ll marinate strips of pork shoulder in sherry, ginger root, oyster sauce, five-spice powder, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ketchup, and cinnamon. “This tastes like the pork served in my favorite Chinese restaurant,” says SHERRY. “Serve at room temperature arranged in overlapping layers on a platter. Garnish with cucumber slices, if desired.”

3. Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

This Texas-style pulled pork recipe features pork shoulder simmered with onions in a tangy chili-seasoned barbecue sauce. Shred the pork and serve on buttered, toasted buns. “Fall-apart tender with good flavor — not too spicy, just enough to tantalize,” says DULCINEA54935.

4. Cuban Pork Roast I

You’ll mash toasted cumin seeds, peppercorns, garlic, and oregano into a paste. And then add it to a marinade with OJ, lime and lemon juices, a little sherry, and olive oil. Enjoy this hearty pork roast with black beans and rice. “If there are any leftovers, make media noches, the Cuban sandwiches that are made with Swiss cheese, ham, and toasted egg bread in addition to roast pork,” says Christine L. Try Chef John’s sandwich recipe:

5. Chef John’s Cuban Sandwich

Chef John makes his Cubano sandwich with pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and a zesty mustard sauce. For best results, build your sandwich on Chef John’s Cuban bread. “Delicious,” raves Cinders57. “This is the most authentic Cuban Sandwich recipe I have found yet! Didn’t change a thing!”

6. Spicy Peruvian Pork

You’ll cut boneless pork shoulder into cubes and marinate them briefly in vinegar, cumin, turmeric, and garlic powder. Then you’ll simply brown the pork and finish by simmering in orange juice, a little water, onion, and the reserved marinade. “This was so delicious! A friend of mine from South America raved about it,” says crcowley.

7. Chef John’s Pork al Latte

This flavorful, incredibly tender, melt-in-the-mouth pork shoulder stew was inspired by a classic Italian dish, maiale al latte (“pork in milk”). Chef John’s version calls for crème fraiche and chicken broth instead of traditional milk. You’ll slowly simmer beautifully browned chunks of pork shoulder with bacon, garlic, and herbs. The sauce develops a luxurious texture and rich taste.

8. Czech Roast Pork

Rub pork shoulder roast with a flavorful mixture of vegetable oil, mustard, caraway seeds, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. You’ll roast the pork in a pan with chopped onions and a little beer. “Roast pork (veprova pecene) is a traditional Czech meal usually served on Sundays,” says none. “Don’t skip the caraway or the beer. They make this dish what it is! Serve it with Knedliky — Czech Dumpling with Sauerkraut (Zeli) and a nice Czech pilsner.”

9. Chef John’s Pork and Beans and Greens

It’s basically beans and greens with an Italian accent. Pieces of seasoned pork shoulder are cooked until crusty and caramelized and served with white beans sautéed briefly with sliced garlic and fresh arugula. “This meal was absolutely fabulous and super simple to make,” says Kim. “Would be great for company because it is so low maintenance.”

 

10. Ukrainian Baba’s Pork Roast

To this succulent roast pork shoulder roast, you’ll add chopped beets and prunes, serving with a quick sour cream and paprika sauce. “This old recipe features a favorite Ukrainian vegetable: beets,” says Olga Drozd. “This gives the roast a red color.”

11. North Carolina Pulled Pork

This slow-cooker pulled pork recipe features pork shoulder roast, a little ketchup, brown sugar, and red wine vinegar. So easy, it takes just minutes to prep. “I got this from a North Carolina native and it is the best,” says skibunny2k. “It is pretty much foolproof.”

12. Miso Braised Pork

To make this Japanese comfort food, you’ll simply sear slices of pork shoulder and then simmmer them with garlic and ginger, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, and miso. “So much umami going on here,” says mrsbigbird. “The aroma is intoxicating. We serve this with rice and the gravy.”

13. Chef John’s Irish Pork Stew

This rich, delicious pork stew features Brussels sprouts, dark stout beer, balsamic vinegar, and caraway seeds. “Amazing,” says manncastro. “Best stew ever! The Brussels sprouts give it an extra texture and flavor that was just yummy!”

14. Sicilian Pineapple Pork Roast

A pork shoulder roast is browned with fresh rosemary and sage then roasted with tomatoes, onions, and pineapple until wonderfully tender. “A great quickie recipe to tasty-up an economy cut of pork roast,” says STREETCAR. “You can adjust the quantities of herbs used to your own taste.”

15. Pork Yaka Mein a la Dug

In the slow cooker, you’ll combine bone-in pork shoulder roast with chicken broth, water, bouillon cubes, seasoned salt, Cajun seasoning, onion powder, and butter. Shred the tender pork off the bone, and then cook bok choy in the savory broth. “My spin on ‘yaka mein soup’ with pork and bok choy,” says dugpark. “It’s a family favorite. Serve with condiments including crushed red pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese, and lime wedges.”

16. Jambon au Sirop D’Erable

“Translation: Ham in Maple Syrup,” says Wendy. It’s smoked pork shoulder simmered with maple syrup, mustard powder, onion, and cloves. “This French-Canadian recipe is usually served during the winter-season, or at the sugar shacks. It’s great as a main meal served with mashed potatoes and carrots, but is also a great side dish for breakfast. This is my grandmother’s traditional and delicious recipe!”

17. Pozole Rojo (Mexican Pork and Hominy Stew)

Chopped pork shoulder combines with pork loin and hominy in a thick broth flavored with colorful red guajillo chile peppers. “The traditional Mexican dish in the red version,” says Consuelo Aguilar. “Serve with tortilla chips.”

18. Wine and Garlic Pork (Portuguese Vina Dosh)

Cubes of pork shoulder are marinated in red wine vinegar, red wine, garlic, bay leaves, cloves, and thyme. “Ah, ‘Vina Dosh,’ a Portuguese dish and tradition of my family,” says Cali-Chef. “It started getting passed down more than 80 years ago when my grandparents came to America from the Azore Islands! Easy to make, but lots of patience to wait for the marinade to make its magic. Serve with Portuguese Linguica and Portuguese Sweet Bread. Hawaiian sweet bread works in a pinch.”

19. Chef John’s Porchetta

Here’s a simplified version of Italian porchetta with a simple and spicy vinegar and parsley sauce. Watch the video to see how to butterfly the pork, prepping it for the tasty stuffing that features herbs, orange zest, and garlic. ” Everyone was raving about how tender and tasty the pork was,” says tcasa.

Cool Brunch Ideas for Fall Fruit Lovers

Autumn means back-to-school, turning leaves and football, but it’s also the peak of apple and pear season across the country. Whether you’re a fan of Granny Smith, Braeburns, Honey Crispy or Pink Pearls, the Bartlett pear or Anjou, there’s no better way to start a fall day than flipping a few apple-laden flapjacks or dishing up pear-stuffed French Toast. These top-rated recipes earn rave reviews for bringing the sweet tartness of the tree fruit into sharp focus. Double up on the apple intensity by serving an easy-to-make cider syrup.

Hotcakes Off the Griddle

When folded into the batter, slices of apples and pears add not only that crave-worthy flavor, but also juicy texture. That means a pancake is transformed from fluffy to something a bit more dense and substantial.
Pro tip: After slicing, sprinkle apples or pears with a little sugar. That releases moisture, which can be mixed into any topping. Pat fruit dry before folding into batter. These steps add to the pancake’s ability to turn golden brown while cooking.

Oven Baked Goodness

Think of these caramelized beauties as the easiest souffle you’ve ever made. OK, don’t freak out. Souffles aren’t that difficult… if you follow directions. Forget souffles, let’s call them Dutch Baby-ish, baked until slightly crispy, just begging to be drenched in syrup. Or, better yet, an apple compote.
Pro tip: Cast iron skillets make the best baked pancakes. Pre-heat them in the oven and pour the batter into the hot pan for the deepest shade of yum.

14. Mocha Walnut Cookies

“This cookie created conflict. They were so good I wanted to share them and made up a plate for my husband to take to his parents’ house. But they were so good he kept insisting I only put a few on the plate and made it clear that he would not be held responsible if they were gone before his family got some.” — Dawn Adams

10 Quick and Easy Potato Side Dishes

We all love baked potatoes and creamy casseroles, but sometimes we don’t have the time to let those taters roast away in the oven for an hour or two. When you need a hearty and tasty side dish in a snap, check out some of our favorite quick and easy potato side dishes that are ready in about 30 minutes.

1. Microwave Baked Potato

It doesn’t get much faster, or easier, than this. When you don’t have time to bake a potato in the oven the old-fashioned way, you can still have the classic side dish, but in a fraction of the time. Home chef Gina Garner recommends placing the potato in a paper bag while microwaving, to help add extra steam. Remember that the size of the potato and the wattage of your microwave will affect the cooking time, so check on your spud every few minutes.

2. My Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

The trick to this easy potato pancake is using leftover mashed potatoes from a previous night’s meal. With the addition of some kitchen staples, you can turn something old into something new. Mix and match the herbs, depending on what you have on hand, or toss in a little shredded cheese, for an extra cheesy and gooey pancake.

3. Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potatoes are cut into wedges, then baked in the oven until crisp on the outside and tender in the center. These are a perfect side dish for your next burger night. Feel free to substitute the vegetable or soybean oil with canola, safflower or any other high-heat oil you have on hand.

4. Curried Cumin Potatoes

Whether you’re cooking up an Indian-inspired feast, or simply roasting a chicken for dinner, these spiced potatoes are the perfect side. Check the ingredients in your curry powder: you may not need to add additional cumin or turmeric. Kiwicook added a splash of low-fat coconut cream along with the stock, to give her dish a rich and creamy gravy.

5. Emily’s Famous Hash Browns

You can easily eat these hash browns for breakfast or dinner. These restaurant-quality hash browns are crisp on the outside and firm on the inside. To save even more time, shred the potatoes and onions together in a food processor.

6. Quick and Easy Grilled Potatoes

When you’re ready for your next cookout, and the barbecue is fired up, throw a few potatoes on the grill. The potatoes are pre-baked in the microwave, then caramelized on the barbecue. Stylistmama likes to top her grilled potatoes with sour cream and green onions, and we think that’s a great idea!

7. Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Perfect for the holiday table, or the dinner table, apples and sweet potatoes are blended together for a sweet and creamy side dish. You can use any tart baking apple in this dish. To make it even faster, MommyWithaPhD suggests poking a few holes in the potatoes, wrapping them in a paper towel, and microwaving them for about 8 minutes.

8. Quick and Easy Home Fries

Crisp, roasted, and seasoned potato pieces are the perfect side dish for brunch or dinner. The key to crisp potatoes is to dry them off with a paper towel before cooking, then don’t stir too often while they are in the pan (which helps form a nice crust). Throw in a little diced bell peppers and onions for additional color and flavor.

9. Roasted Red New Potatoes

If you like the style of home-fried potatoes, and already have the oven on, try this version, which requires even less fuss. This recipe is super simple, using only oil, salt, and pepper. If you want to add a pop of color or flavor, sprinkle with dried herbs, like thyme or oregano, while roasting, or top with fresh chopped herbs, like parsley or chives, after roasting.

10. Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes

We admit, we’re stretching the 30-minute rule here, but only because it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. Toss the potatoes in your slow cooker, and by the time you get home, your sides are ready! Wrapping the potatoes in foil helps them to steam, and eliminates any clean-up afterwards.

Great Gluten-Free Grains: Amazing Amaranth

Amaranth is often called a grain, but it’s really a seed, and you can cook it like rice and oats. Here’s how to use gluten-free amaranth seeds in all kinds of recipes.

Great Gluten-Free Grains: Amazing Amaranth |

Small But Mighty

As you can see from the photo, amaranth seeds are teeny tiny. But don’t let their diminutive size fool you. Naturally gluten-free Amaranth seeds are a complete protein, high in fiber, iron, amino acids and calcium, are easily digestible, and have been shown to lower cholesterol. Pretty amazing for such a small package! And with their pleasantly nutty taste, they add flavor as well as nutrition to any dish.

How to Cook Amaranth

Amaranth is cooked a lot like rice, oats, and other grains: Combine one cup seeds and two cups water or other flavorful cooking liquid (like stock or milk) and bring it to boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the grains are fluffy and the liquid is absorbed.

Amaranth is simple to incorporate into your favorite dishes and baked goods. You can also combine amaranth with other grains, like brown rice or oats, to maximize the flavor and health benefits in your meals. If you’re a fan of quinoa, you can substitute amaranth for most recipes that call for quinoa, like this recipe for Quinoa and Black Beans.

Baking With Amaranth

The tiny seeds can be ground into a flour, to use in gluten-free baking. Because of its strong nutty flavor, we recommend using one part amaranth flour to three parts other gluten-free flours. If you’re simply looking for a health boost, replace one cup of all-purpose wheat flour with amaranth flour in your favorite cookie and bread recipes, like in these Peanut Butter and Amaranth Cookies

If you like these, you’ll also love Sourdough Amaranth Wheat English Muffins and Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins combining amaranth, bread, and brown rice flours for a grab-and-go snack.

Breakfast Ideas

Simmer amaranth for a porridge-like consistency with a bit of natural sweetness. Keep an eye on it, though, as it can go from perfect to gummy in a few minutes. Try this recipe for Gluten-Free Hot Breakfast Cereal.

More Ways to Use Amaranth

Thickener: Amaranth has a natural sticky quality that’s great to thicken soups, smoothies, and sauces. Add a tablespoon or two to sauce and soup while it’s cooking. And instead of using frozen fruit to thicken your smoothies, mix in a tablespoon or two of amaranth seeds, like this Banana and Brazil Nut Breakfast Smoothie.

Popped Amaranth: Toast amaranth seeds in a dry skillet over high heat, shaking the pan continuously. Eat the toasted seeds like popcorn (with a bit of salt or nutritional yeast sprinkled on top), or toss them on top of salads, vegetables, or soups for a bit of texture. You can also serve popped amaranth with milk and fruit for a breakfast cereal or layer it into a yogurt parfait.

Storage

Amaranth and amaranth flour have a lot of great nutrients. To keep them at their best, refrigerate amaranth for up to 6 months, or buy small quantities and use it quickly.

Why Aren’t We Healthier?

What’s standing in the way of a healthier life for you and your family?

Is it…

Having a Walmart budget when you’d like to shop at Whole Foods?
Feeling overwhelming by all the changes you’ll need to make?
Wondering how to fit all the healthy tasks into your day (when you’re barely squeezing in the basics as it is)?
Confusion over what changes are really important (and which ones to do first)?

I understand where you’re coming from.  As a mom who has always been interested in healthy living, I still get too busy to make it all happen the way I want.  BUT, I still get obsessed with learning all the things I could do, even if it’s small things, for my family!

For example, a few small things I’ve done is

Learn to replace store-bought products with DIY options that actually work and are easy to make!
Discover healthy meal planning secrets that are cheaper (and faster!) than the drive-thru, plus get wholesome recipes your family loves!
And got access to resources like eCourses that teach what changes to make (and how to make them)?

The folks at Ultimate Bundles have put together the popular Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the sixth year in a row (hurray!). They’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health (over 80,000 and counting!) and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete library of natural living resources for one teeny tiny price.

You sort of need to see it to believe it, but the package includes 107 digital products and it’s worth over $3,680!

For the cost of a small bag of groceries, you’ll get a complete healthy living library to help you:

prepare wholesome & delicious real food
get the toxins out of your house for good
understand and use natural remedies
breathe new life into your exercise habits
learn about important women’s health issues
raise exceptionally healthy kids in an unhealthy world
deal with digestive issues naturally
discover the exercises you need for the best version of yourself
plus learn about gardening & homesteading, meal planning, weight loss and so much more!

Plus, it comes with over $190 worth of bonus offers (totally one of my favorite parts!).

Besides being so incredibly helpful and inspiring, one of the things I like best about the bundle is the price. By offering the bundle for a short time only, they’re able to give you access to over $3,680 worth of high-quality eBooks, eCourses and printables for a whopping 99% off!

Here’s how it works:

Visit their website, take a quick look at all the goodness that comes in this package, then click the green “Buy now!” button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process.
You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus offers.
Use their Getting Started Guide to pick the topic you want to tackle first and start making healthy changes!

The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just six days! After Monday night, September 25th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

It’s even backed by a full money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you.

No one should have to put off a healthier lifestyle because it costs too much or they can’t get the help they need.

Our family has felt so much better by making changes to the way we eat, the products we use, and how we take care of ourselves. It’s made all the difference in the world and I want the same for you.

Get what you need for your healthy lifestyle. Learn more or get your bundle HERE.

The bundle goes away at 11:59pm Eastern on Monday, September 25th, so don’t wait!)
