first tip in June

Happy Full moon!
Want to let you know that there are people signed up for the Reiki 1 class, June 10 & 11 (two day course) 1-5, if you want to sign up let me know! $125 for the two day course, handouts, books and attunement all included. Let me know if you have any other questions.

This weeks tip is to read the food ingredients of what you eat! For example your wheat bread, might not be so much wheat. If it has carmel coloring, chances are it is not so much wheat. Look for whole grains and read your ingredients careful! Read all ingredients careful, it might look healthy on the outside, but inside it has High Fructose Cornsyrup, Partially Hydrogenated Oils and other things that do not give you nutrients and can be hurtful to your body.
Remember the food that goes in helps to power your body, so choose wisely. Lots of varied colors and cooked in a healthy way is what you want. There are all sorts of healthy cookbooks out there, check them out!

When was the last time you had a strawberry shake at Burger King? Here is the ingredients list. Let me know if you find real STRAWBERRY in there anywhere. :0)

Happy munching!
