Cinco De Mayo Vibes - NEW Taco Recipe!

RecipeGet Your Vibes

NEW taco recipe, just in time for Cinco De Mayo!  The flavor is festive and super healthy. 

 Ingredients:

½ Head of purple cabbage

1 Red pepper

1 Mango

½ Sweet onion or purple onion

¼ Cup of cilantro

3-4 Portobello mushrooms

3 Limes

3-4 Tablespoons of honey

Get Your Vibes garlic cashew dip

Tortillas of your choice

Hoisin sauce

Olive Oil

Garlic powder

Pepper

Cumin

Salt

Start by shredding the purple, chopping the red pepper, onion, cilantro and mango.  Toss it in a large bowl.  Squeeze the juice from the limes (same a half of one for garnish or extra juice on top of the taco) in the bowl, add in the honey, about 1 teaspoon of cumin or more, ½ teaspoon or more of garlic powder and salt and pepper to your liking. Mix it really well, add in more lime, honey, or spices if you needed.

Thinly slice the portobello mushrooms, add them to a pan with a little olive oil.  Add in 3-4 tablespoons of hoisin sauce and sauté.  Add in some garlic powder, salt and pepper, combine on the stovetop until the mushrooms have absorbed the sauce and spices.  Once the mushrooms are done set them aside.  Warm your tortillas and add the GYV garlic cashew dip as a base, place the cabbage mixture on top, then add the mushrooms and feel free to garnish with more cilantro and fresh lime. 

It’s easy, healthy and really delicious!  Enjoy!

Vibe of The Week: Make Your Morning Work for You!

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for an even better week!  Morning is such a precious time of day, everything is crisp, fresh and open for possibility.  It's an important time to prepare for a successful day as well.  Having a morning routine will not only help your focus but it will allow you to face the day with calmness and an inner peace.  We don’t want to be frazzled in the morning because that sets us up for a frazzled day, we want to be focused and mentally ready to accomplish and adapt to whatever the day brings.  We can’t prepare for what is going to happen, we can only prepare ourselves.  So what is your morning routine like?

A few things that I find to be really helpful in the morning are having a set of non-negotiables, you do this every morning no matter where you are.

1) Wake up with an attitude of gratitude.  When you place your feet on the ground, say, think and feel what you are grateful for, it can be anything!  We always have room for more gratitude in our life and starting the day being grateful sets a positive tone.

2) Hydrate!  No exceptions.  All Get Your Vibes clients drink at least 24-32 ounces of room temperature to warm water with lemon every morning.  After sleeping it is especially important to start the day with water, nothing else before the water should go in your body.  If you're on the road make sure you have water with you and a lemon if you'd like, I travel with both and I always feel like it helps me stay on track with I travel with my water and lemon.

3) Have some quiet time.  Whether it’s to journal, meditate or make a to-do list, setting aside 20-30 minutes to gather your thoughts, quiet the mind and mentally check in with yourself is extremely important.  This will help you think more clearly, see things as the really are and help you react or not react to things.  A chaotic mind is a mind that makes mistakes, quiet the mind so that you can think clearly and be creative.

4) Do not check emails or social media right away, wait!  Many of us sleep with our phones close to our bed because of the convenience of an alarm clock, so we are tempted to lay in bed and check emails, IG, FB, and maybe like a tweet or two all before we even get out of bed?!  Nope, that’s no way to start the day.  You want to feel refreshed and have a clear mind before attending to any emails.  

I hope these simple but easy to include tips

Magnesium Oil Muscle Spray
22.00

Calling all athletes, gym rats and health nuts this spray is for you! 

Did you know that nearly 75% of Americans are deficient of the magical mineral, magnesium?  Magnesium plays a role in nearly 300 enzymes in the human body.  These enzymes impact how the body functions on a daily basis, everything from metabolic functions, which influence everything from how our body manufactures our DNA, to muscle soreness and the production of important hormones in the body.   Most Americans lack magnesium in their diet because today's soil isn't abundant in minerals like it once was.  When you supplement with clean, pure magnesium, like our spray, your body benefits in a variety of ways.  Your energy will increase, you become less irritable, improve sleep, relieves chronic pain and elevates muscle soreness, eases headaches and migraines, regulates blood sugar, boosts immune system, helps support a healthy libido, improves memory and cognitive function, supports antioxidant systems, the list goes on and that's because magnesium really is a magic mineral!  

When applied to the skin, magnesium oil is absorbed rapidly and effectively boosts magnesium levels in the body. This effect restores healthy levels of magnesium to muscles but also the cells.  This spray is vegan, cruelty free and filled with Good Vibes.

Directions: Apply daily before bedtime by spraying soles of feet and any sore muscles.  This is great to use for a professional massage as well or add it to your bathtub and prepare to relax and Get Your Vibes!  The bottle is TSA travel size compliant, two ounce container, perfect for traveling. External use only, do not spray on face.

Vibe of The Week: Dry Brushing

Vibe Of The Week, BeautyGet Your Vibes

We are going to change it up a bit and this week's Vibe focuses on one of our favorite self-care techniques, dry brushing!

When I first start working with clients there is a Get Your Vibes starter kit that I share with them and in that kit there is a dry brush.  Most of the items in the kit they know about, but the dry brush? I always get questions about, it never fails!  I get it though, it looks more like a back scratcher or a scrub brush for a bathtub, but it's actually such a simple way to improve your body's health. 

 

Dry brushing is an ancient technique that has the ability to detox our bodies in a variety of ways.  Dry brushing will increase our circulation and because of that it helps stimulate/detox our lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating cellular waste products.  Miles of lymphatic tubules allow waste to be collected from tissue and transported to your blood for elimination, this is known as lymphatic drainage.  What happens when our lymphatic system doesn’t drain properly?  It leads to inflammation and disease, dry brushing helps prevent that.  It helps shed excess water and toxins, it also helps improves digestion and kidney function.  Dry brushing is great for proper distribution of fat deposits and this reduces the appearance of cellulite!

So how do we dry brush?  Start at the ankles and gently stroke upwards, go all the way up the legs, giving special attention to the back of our legs, and brush the tummy, rear end, all the way to the neck and from your wrists, making sure to get the elbows and over the shoulders.  If you can get as much of your back without straining yourself.  If you have any areas where you'd like your skin to look smoother then pay extra attention to it and brush over it a few more times.  You should aim to dry brush every morning before you shower, apply gentle pressure, remember you're brushing your skin, not scrubbing floors!  It's normal for your skin to feel a warm sensation and if it leaves marks then brush the skin softer.

You can find dry brushes at any health store, at whole foods in the whole body sections and online, amazon, has some great quality brushes.  Avoid synthetic bristles, one of my favorite brands is Yerba Prima, they are not a sponsor, just a quality product.  Our skin is our largest organ and dry brushing is one of the best ways to take care of it. Use the hashtag #VOTW and show us how you're vibing out!   Enjoy this self care technique and I hope it helps you Get Your Vibes!

Tahini Veggie Stir Fry Pasta

Get Your Vibes

Do you ever have those moments when you throw something together and hope for the best?  This dish IS that.  It was a Friday night, I had just hit some golf balls at the range and I was craving something hearty and filling, but also quick and easy.  The combo of filling and quick, often doesn't go hand in hand but this is an exception.  Let's get to it so you can Get Your Vibes.

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of Tinkyada spiral pasta (or your favorite gluten free pasta)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped purple cabbage
  • 1/2 cup of julienned carrots
  • 1/2 cup of spinach
  • 1/4 cup of sliced red onion
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup of tahini
  • 2-3 tablespoons of liquid aminos
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • S&P to taste

Start by chopping all your vegetables with the exception of the spinach, set them aside and boil the pasta.  Be sure to stir the pasta often, as gluten free pasta can get sticky.  Saute the veggies in the coconut oil until tender.  Once the pasta is done and the veggies are tender, strain the pasta and turn off the heat.  Add the pasta and spinach to the pan with the veggies, then gently combine the tahini, liquid aminos, garlic powder, S&P. and lemon juice.  Continue to gently fold and combine until everything is coated, then transfer to a bowl.  Top with cilantro, avocado and hemp seeds, put your feet up, Get Your Vibes and enjoy!

Notes:  This isn't a sponsored post but I do really love the Tinkyada pasta, all of them!  In my opinion, it's one of the best gluten free pastas on the market and the ingredients pass the Get Your Vibes test!

Block Out Bad Vibes

The More You KnowGet Your Vibes

Protecting our health and good vibes is a top priority.  Achieving optimal health consists of many things in addition to eating a proper diet, getting enough sleep and exercise.  There are simple and effective ways to protect and amplify our health.  We are exposed to thousands of toxins every day, not just in our food but environmental toxins, toxins in our skin care and cleaning supplies, and toxins from our TV Screens, computers, iPads and cell phones!  Is nothing pure anymore?!  It's becoming increasingly difficult to know what is or isn't healthy and how we can protect ourselves. 

Something that I've been introduced to over the last year are yellow lens glasses and how they greatly benefit us.  We don't always realize the harms and toxins that come with technology, our TV, computer, tablet or cell phone screens can disrupt our health and impact our body's internal clock, which leads to interruption of proper hormone production and secretion, issues with sleeping and macular degeneration, just to name a few.  Our screens emit light waves that our eyes and brain process. Blue light waves are especially difficult for us to process because it is a shorter wavelength, it scatters easier than other colors and it makes it very difficult for us to focus, therefore resulting in harmful eye strain, and often times we don't even realize how strained our eyes really are.  Blue light is also very harmful to our body's circadian rhythm, which is our internal, a 24 hour cycle in the physiological processes of all living beings, plants, animals, insects, all living beings.  This internal clock regulates how our body feels, when we rise and when we get tired, the blue light manipulates this natural internal process and we struggle to maintain healthy energy.

Recent studies show that blue light impacts the following; sleep problems, bipolar disorder and macular degeneration.  There is also ongoing research linking the harmful rays to, diabetes, obesity, immune system function, and an increased risk of cancer but more studies need to be conducted to fully tell blue light's impact. 

Fortunately, there are ways we can protect ourselves, simply purchasing yellow or copper lens glasses online (amazon has them and they aren't very expensive) is a great way to prevent the blue light damage when looking at any sort of screen, not looking at screens in dark surroundings is also helpful, try to have a cut off time from electronics at least 1-2 hours before bed.  All of these methods are easy, simple and effective.  Some of the things you want to look for when purchasing glasses are "Anti Blue Light Filter [Sleep Better], UV Block Radiation Eyestrain Reading Safety Glasses Square Computer Eyewear Yellow 49mm Lens".  It's important that they are anti blue light glasses.  We are not paid by this company in any way, so this is just a suggestion but the Cyxus Blue Light Filter glasses are great, durable, and get the job done.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comment section below and we will be sure to answer them.  We hoped you enjoyed this blog and may it help you Get Your Vibes!

Vibe of The Week: Be Open to Receiving.

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

After you pray or ask for something, how often do you mindfully check in with yourself to see if you're putting yourself in a position to receive?  Are you holding up your end of the deal and putting in the work to achieve what you asked for?  It's so important for us to be open to receiving and allowing abundance to come to us, without judgment or expectations as to how we are receiving.  Perhaps, what you have asked for doesn't come to you the way you want or expected, but it's still showing up, so it's on you to be open to how you are receiving. If you are wanting more financial  freedom, what are doing to acquire more money?  Hopefully, you're out there making moves, taking on projects, asking for a raise, putting yourself in a position to receive what you have asked for! 

Whatever it is that you want, it doesn't matter how big or how small it is, ask for it! Pray for it!  Work for it!  Continue to be mindful of the effort and actions you are taking to acquire what you have asked for.  Stay the course, be open and allow abundance to come to you.

Show is how you are using the Vibe of The Week, to help you Get Your Vibes by using the #VOTW hashtag and tagging us, @Get_Your_Vibes, if your photos!

Sending you all lots of love and good vibes this week!

Vibe of The Week: Don't Negotiate With Your Mind.

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

Pay attention to the period in the title.  Do not negotiate with your mind, that's it, end of story.  This is something that I tell myself, daily.  Especially when the alarm clock goes off  at 6 A.M., and I (at times) disgruntled put on my workout clothes, "don't you hit that snooze button, remember, you don't negotiate with me", says my mind.  When it comes to setting your mind and brain to accomplish a self improving goal, don't leave any room for negotiation.

Why would you negotiate on something that is going to make you better and improve an aspect of yourself?  So whether it's an early morning workout, meditating,  eating healthy or setting boundaries or a new routine, or having positive self talk, don't negotiate.  Tell yourself that, write it down, hold yourself accountable because you are worthy of accomplishing all your desires and goals. 

Vibe of The Week: Habits.

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

Habits, we all have them, we’ve broken them and built better ones, or gotten off track and formed unhealthy ones.  Habits are a reflection of what we repeatedly do.  Have you purposely built your habits or have you got caught up in the mundane or routine and unknowingly formed unhealthy habits?  We want you to start paying attention to your life on purpose.  Every thought leads to a choice, that choice leads to an action and that action can form a habit, hopefully a habit that has been created by intention with meaning and drive behind it.

What you repeatedly tell yourself is a habit, how you speak to yourself has a huge impact on the choices you make.  Habitually think, empowering, confident, thoughts and that will lead to strong and confident choices.  Last week's Vibe was awareness, let’s use that awareness to look at our habitual patterns and see where we can do better by breaking old habits that no longer serve us.  Think of this as a way to strengthen your choice muscle.  Each time you enhance and change your way of thinking and are making stronger choices, this will lead to stronger results. So strengthen that choice muscle!

Spring, has a new energy to it, things feel fresh and ready to bloom, it’s a great time to not only clean out material items but thoughts, choices, patterns and habits that do nothing for us.  Take some time to sit with yourself, and think about where you can be better and break an outmoded cycle, maybe have a pen and paper on hand to write down all the ways you plan on building positive and strong habits that will help you achieve your goals and have a more defined path to all that you want in life!

Use the hashtag #VOTW on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, to show us how you are putting the Vibe of The Week into action, have fun with it and Get Your Vibes!

 

 

Vibe of The Week: Awareness.

Vibe Of The WeekGet Your Vibes

Every Monday, we are going to share a Vibe of The Week with our readers.  This can be a thought, mantra or even an idea, something to evolve your thinking and help you Get Your Vibes.

This first edition of #VOTW, is to help create an awareness of energy, also known as vibes.  Do you notice the energy you carry?  Can you feel other peoples vibes and does their energy make you feel good or bad?  We are 100% responsible for our vibes and the energy that we bring every day, it's our choice.   Take pride in the energy you radiate and be mindful of how you allow or don’t allow others to impact your vibes.

For this #VOTW set some time aside to think about energy, period.  Then feel your energy and ask yourself, what am I creating and what am I doing to create my vibes?  Do you take time for yourself to simply do things that make you feel good?  Maybe go for a walk, get out in nature, meditate, or journal, these are all ways to help you become more in tune and aware of your energy and more importantly raise your vibrations.  Energy is real, we all know it, we all feel it, trust it, energy doesn't lie.  We were born with the gift of intuition and the choice is ours to strengthen it, let it guide us in life towards what feels best and to be the most authentic and truest version of our best self.  

 

trust-the-vibes-you-get-energy-doesn-t-lie.jpg

The purpose of Vibe of The Week is to simply get you thinking or perhaps thinking differently.  Let's pay attentions on purpose and let's be aware of our energy and the energy around us.  How you show up in life magnetizes what shows up for you, the choice is yours.  Now go on and Get Your Vibes!

Use the hashtags #VTOW and #GetYourVibes to show us how you're creating that good energy!  You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram: @Get_Your_Vibes and search Get Your Vibes on Facebook!  We look forward to interacting with you and being apart of your good vibe tribe!
