IGNITE YOUR DAY – Wednesday

by admin
Dish of the Day:
Pumpkin Pie  It’s Christmas week, and that means perhaps another pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner. This recipe is very delicious – it has a nut crust so it’s gluten-free. Dr. Paul calls it “almost Paleo” because he makes it with heavy cream and he serves it with homemade whipped cream (that’s why they call him “Dr. Fat”…but he knows his fats – ‘the fats that kill and the fats that heal,’ which is the title of a great book on fats).  (Click here for additional recipes)

 

Movement of the Day:
One Arm Kettlebell Swings - a very simple, but effective full range-of-motion movement. Don’t have a kettlebell? Use your cat.  (Click here for additional workouts)

 

Journal of the Day:
Quote of the Day: “Love…is largely the art of persistence.” ~ Albert Ellis
Essential Element: We cannot pour from an empty pitcher. In order to love others – we must consistently care for ourselves.
Journal: Write down three things you can do for yourself this week to healthfully feed your own mental well-being (i.e. half hour of reading before bed, a walk after dinner, waking up early to spend quiet minutes alone before work). (Click here for additional journaling exercises)

  1. a. I’ve made that pie (but dairy free), and it’s amazing.

    b. The cat comment cracked me up. But what do we use if we haven’t a cat?

    c. Yes, ‘healthily’ IS a word. :-)

  2. Hi Suzanne,

    Thanks for your comments – glad someone got the humor!

    Yes, that recipe can be made with coconut milk (preferably not “lite”).

    For the kettlebell exercise, try using an opossum might, or rocks tied up in a pillow case, or perhaps an infant duck-taped into a ball with a handle :) . I’ve tried talking our eleven year old Hope into letting me swing her by her ponytail, but she won’t go for it :) . Seriously, you could use a dumbbell or anything you can get a good grip around that would weigh enough.

    Yours in health, Dr. Paul
