IGNITE YOUR DAY – Sunday

by admin
FUEL:  Dish of the Day:
Dr. Paul’s Tacos  Tacos are quick and easy, a great use of leftover meat, and with minimal prep and clean up, a hit with Mom or whoever has kitchen duty that night. Everybody loves tacos, from toddlers to parents. A Paleo diet style doesn’t include corn* tortillas – a tortilla substitute would be to use lettuce leaves as “taco wraps.”  [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

 

*IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT CORN: Whenever buying any corn product such as tortillas, it’s very important to buy ONLY organic products. Sadly, thanks to the merciless campaign by chemical criminal Monsanto, genetically modified foods (GMO, for genetically modified organism) have become commonplace in America (most other countries ban Monsanto GMO crops). Making matters worse is our spineless Monsanto lobbyist-influenced legislators refusing to require GMO foods to be labeled as such. So, the only safe recourse is to buy certified organic.

 

AIR:  Movement of the Day:
Pistols This is one of the hardest exercises to do. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can use a chair or something to hold onto. Master this freestanding, and you are a master.  [Click here for additional Workouts]

 

SPARK:  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day: Routines are the things that you have to do; rituals are the things that you get to do. ~ Dr. Stephen Franson
Essential Element: As paradoxical as it may sound, when you embrace routine and schedule – in as many areas of your life as possible including sleep, waking, working out, quiet time – the more free you become.  [click to view Spark Insight -  Morning Rituals]
Journal:  Write down where can you get more scheduled, more in a set routine. Then do it.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
