5 TIPS

for late Summer

01-

KEEP COOKING!

Maintain the delicious cooking many of us achieved being more at home since March! Briefly cook dark leafy greens until bright green, adding organic sauerkraut or kimchi with every meal, including breakfast. Eat a variety of grains: mixed grains such as long or short brown rice with millet or quinoa are great. And don’t forget a sea vegetable dish daily.

MAKE RICH SOUPS

Salad is brilliant through Summer. As the season matures, make soups rich and sweet with onions, root veggies, wakame or dulse, some beans, tofu or tempeh. Even better, fry the tofu or tempeh quickly before adding to your soup. Go Mediterranean and put a handful of sultanas, a few warm spices and mint for satisfaction. Season with a mix of organic mustard, miso to taste, teaspoonful of umeboshi paste or plum, lemon or fresh ginger juice and some fresh ground black pepper.

GUT VITALITY

Particularly while the virus is prevalent, we need to keep our gut and intestines in top condition. Making your food more alkaline than acid creates 100% difference. Even when we eat the best quality organic sourdough bread, biscuits or cleverly advertised crisps they will create an acid effect, especially if we have too much. Replace them by keeping a beautiful bowl of lightly cooked broccoli, celery, long carrot pieces, cauliflower florets in your kitchen. Crunchy veggies re-create that satisfaction and feel very different in our stomach. Digested more easily they allow us quality thinking and quiet emotions free from anxiety. So subtle, so good!

FRESH AIR

Every day give yourself 15 minutes of pure early or late sunshine on your skin for top-quality vitamin D. Breathe deep and fill your lungs with oxygen. Fast walk, swinging arms in rhythm with your legs, releasing shoulder tension. Take a super fast run in the park for 5 minutes until you have to stop, then slow to a stroll. Dance outside. Stretching, twisting, breathing deep, in the park with a few friends at the right distance. Singing with a few friends or solo, outside.

VOLUNTEER

Be active in the community, online and volunteering. This is the wake-up call for our sacred home, planet Earth. To recognize that we are interdependent with nature, there is no separation: let’s research where and how, do we want to help? No more chemicals or pesticides, great plastic reduction. Challenge advertising, sales techniques and dominant corporations.  Support organic farmers and land stewards, buy local, become self-sufficient. Use natural remedies where appropriate.
