Creating an Alkaline lifestyle by Jackie Greene
Greetings to everyone who participated in my talk, "Introduction to creating an alkaline lifestyle" at Novo Nordisk.
First and foremost, thank you all so very much for allowing me into your space and listening to me share my thoughts on an ALKALINE LIFESTYLE.
I think it goes without saying that I’m on fire on the topic and have a deep-rooted passion to share the words. I firmly believe in taking baby steps to create a lasting change for a successful long-term outcome. Being the CEO of your body is the most important job you will ever have, it can and will impact everyone around you.
While reviewing our time together with my team, we agreed it would be important next step to share what we felt a “great day might look like” We also wanted to address a question that was asked in more detail. Our goal is to support your decisions to think differently, do differently and in turn live differently.
Here it goes...
Warm lemon water - One (1) cup hot water.
1 large wedge of a lemon sip and enjoy.
Take 5 minutes to see how you want your day to go.
See yourself in the meeting and people agreeing with you. See your clients being excited that today is the day you meet with them. See yourself making someone else smile or feel good today!
Meditation - Start with Five (5) minutes
Have your coffee or tea without dairy and without sugar or a sweetener. Remember green tea is a great alternative choice, especially Matcha green tea. It has 10x more antioxidants than regular green tea. It slowly releases caffeine and helps with clarity and focus. Monks drink this while they sit in prayer and meditation for hours...
Pressed green juice - we shared two (2) easy juice recipes in our handout. We know that juicing takes time, but try to make enough for three (3) days. Be sure to seal the container immediately as the air will spoil the juice. It should also remain refrigerated. If you would like you can also add lemon each time you're ready to drink. Pressing ginger alone and keeping in the refrigerator is another suggestion. Ginger tea with lemon and local honey becomes a great mid-day friend as well as something that can be had late in the evening. For those on the go, you can call your local shop ahead of time and ask them to prepare one or two for you to you pick up! No mess no wait time... but a little more costly. Lastly, freshly pressed juice in a bottle, read ingredients check the date, read labels & we are looking for low or no fruit.
Protein and good fats, egg whites cooked in coconut oil with spinach, mushroom & scallions. Or try baking 1/2 an avocado and bake the egg where the pit once was.
Water, Water & yes more Water, if it’s hard for you to drink water make it fun and attractive. Add cut up berries, lemons, mint, and watermelon with lime. Or Thai basil with Asian pear chunks and some goji berries.
One (1) pear and Twelve (12) raw almonds or if you have allergies try celery and hummus.
Seed crackers and & roasted carrot hummus
Salsa and gluten free chips
Blueberries with mint coconut yogurt
Get in the sun for nine (9) minutes
Water, Water & yes more Water!
Big bowl spinach salad served with roasted peppers, chickpeas, caramelized onions, three (3) oz. of an animal protein or omit. (The chickpeas are a great source of protein.) Evoo, white balsamic vinegar with chopped parsley.***If you can make double or triple you can then use it for the next night with dinner.
Here's how: In a skillet add two (2) tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil, add two (2) smashed cloves of garlic and sauté. Add in onion till brown. Add one (1) jar of roasted peppers (read the label only roasted pepper as some will have a grape juice that’s ok!) Next up chickpea and top with spinach. Cover and let simmer serve over brown rice, sprinkle with fresh parsley and lemon zest. Add pink salt and black peppercorns to taste.
Water, Water & yes more Water!
Get up and walk for 7 minutes.
Midday herbal tea, try mint or chocolate coconut
If you tend to crash around 3 or 4 pm try the matcha green tea with some almond milk and honey. Soooo much better than coffee and a power bar...
Try starting with a cup of soup or a broth
Cauliflower rice, one (1) head of cauliflower cleaned and cut or broken up. Either a cheese grater or food processor pulse pulse pulse..... create rice size pieces. Place in a big bowl- you can cut up cherry tomatoes, red onion, Basil, heats of artichokes or hearts of palm, sun-dried black olives or capers. Mix in a big bowl and add EVOO, minced garlic, and a little balsamic.. top with local goat feta cheese or grilled chicken.
For the family- make 3 cups of brown rice and mix in with Cauliflower rice.
You serve warm or raw.
Dessert, two 2 oz. dark chocolate with ten (10) walnut halves. Or Chia seed pudding.
Set your bedtime routine two (2) hours before your sleep time. Power down your phone and electronics. One (1) hour before finish you nighttime responsibilities: read, finish tv time, be mindful of what you're creating as your new ritual.
Keep your journal and favorite pen next to the bed, write down what didn’t get finished today and put it on tomorrow’s to-do list. Write down one (1) thing that went well today no matter how big or small. Example: I drank all my water today, I just smiled when they were rude instead of getting angry or I made it a point to tell my partner how awesome they are (even if they're not) it’s not about them it’s about you. Be proud of what you made go well today.
Meditate for five (5) minutes, breathe long deep breaths in with the new out with old. Relax, let it all go for a few minutes... you can pick it all up again when you're done :)
Find a nice bedtime meditation on youtube.
Now how can I do all this? I’m so busy... If that’s your thought is then you need to do this. Start with baby steps!!!
