ALKALINE WATER-BOY!

Tonight I am under the weather (forgive me, for I have sinned), and it happens to be on the same evening that I decide to start a "liquid fast" to rid my body (mind, and soul included) of harmful toxins to help restore my immunity!

Advocates of alkaline water say that drinking it can optimize health,  prevent numerous diseases, and slow the aging process. Alkaline water will flush toxins from the cells, remove and prevent toxins from accumulating, and make hydration more effective because it penetrates cells better than other types of water. 

You can make your own alkaline drinking water at home using these two different methods that raise the pH of water over the neutral level of 7.

1. Use Himalayan Sea Salt Crystals to add to Spring Water. These natural and pure products are available for purchase online or locally. The Trader Joe's brand, for example, works by adding 1-2 crystals in a 1 GAL (3.78L) bottle of water.

2.  Add Baking Soda to Spring Water or Distilled Water. Begin with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to 1 gallon of water. Shake the jug to mix the baking soda and water thoroughly (check the pH of the water with a pH test strip if you think its a joke!) 
Distilled water has a pH of about 7 or a bit lower, but you want this mix to measure somewhere between 8.5 and 9. Add more baking soda if the pH level is lower and test it again so the next time, you'll know exactly how much baking soda to add.

Live FAST; Get WELL!

"SS" PANCAKES

"SS" doesn't mean 'Super Sport' or 'Sirkle Sity' (this time)... It stands for "SUPER SPELT!"

I woke up shortly after 5am this morning, took some herbs (Viento and T1), did a quick workout and hit the shower. With success and breakfast on my mind, I decided to whip up big pancakes for breakfast since I have a long day of training classes ahead of me.

Breakfast is a very important meal. I start the day with healthy, natural, nourishing food that will fill me up and get my day off to a great start!

So here's what I did, I got:
1 1/2 cups whole spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups milk water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon raw almond butter
1 banana (mashed and stirred)

Preheat stove top and non-stick pan on med-high setting. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Once fully combined, mix in remaining wet ingredients until combined. Mix until batter is mostly smooth and lump free (depending on how mashed the banana is). If batter is too thick, add water a tablespoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency.

Once your stove top and the non-stick pan is ready, use olive oil to coat the non-stick pan. Pour just enough batter to form a pancake of the desired size.
Watch pancake closely, when the batter starts to bubble and the center does not look very 'gooey', and the edges are just brown, it's time to flip the pancake over babe! Cook for approximately 2 more minutes.

Serve warm with organic grade B maple syrup, and/or 100% fruit topping (ex. strawberry, blueberry, raspberry). 

Straight firrrrre!
