Super Size Me didn't focus on the health of the workers

McDonald’s Workers Protesting in NYC: #Fastfoodglobal

When Morgan and I made Super Size Me, we focused on the health effects of the food on the consumer.

One major area we didn’t focus on was the health of the workers.

Today in my adopted home town of New York City, and around the world, McDonald’s and other fast food workers are out in the streets protesting for higher wages.

Super Size Me didn’t focus on the health of the workers

On January 1st, 2014, the minimum wage in NYC rose $0.75 from $7.25 per hour to $8.00 per hour. In 2015, the minimum wage will raise another $0.75 to $8.75 per hour. Finally, in 2016, the minimum wage will increase to $9.00 per hour.

Many workers hold down two jobs, working well-over full time, in order to get close to the poverty line of $23,850 for a family of 4.

How are workers supposed to take care of their families on this much money, especially in one of the most expensive cities on earth? How are they to afford healthy food for their kids?

In Boston, one McDonald’s has locked its doors and closed down due to the numbers of people protesting outside. Thousands have walked off the job in Manhattan alone.

If you’re out there and pass by a group of picketing fast food workers today, give them a cheer or honk of support! Everyone deserves a living wage, especially here in the United States.

And skip the drive-thru. Eat some apple slices and peanut butter.

Crave-worthy Detox Smoothie!

Green Pineapple Dream |  yield: 2 servings


Green smoothieGreen smoothies are my favorite go-to healthy breakfast. Tasty and filled with energy-boosting nutrients, you won’t deplete your willpower whipping up one of these beauties!

Green cilantro is anti-inflammatory, cholesterol-lowering, and binds with toxins so your body can release them. (if you’re not a fan of cilantro, swap it for basil or parsley, which are also fabulous!) 

Tropical pineapple is also anti-inflammatory, a good source of Vitamin D, and contains Manganese and  Bromelain, a wonderful digestion-boosting enzyme. 
What to put in your blender: 
 

What to do (AKA directions):

  1. Combine the greens, cilantro and water together and blend until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and blend again until smooth! Pour, sip and ahhhh! 

Did you love this smoothie?

Hot Mama: Mothering myself to be a better mom (Mama Love Self-Care Menu!)

I got into trouble for saying this on the radio:

My self-care and health are the most important things to me. My son is #2.

People online called me selfish, and a bad role model, but I’ll tell you what:

My kid is happier and better cared for when my health is the top priority.

It’s a paradox: selfish self-care for the health of the family.

When our families and friends (and clients) see us taking exquisite care of ourselves, they begin to see the possibilities for greater ease, freedom, and health in their own lives.

AKA: be the change, be the living example.
I tried doing it the other way — heck, I’m naturally Type-A and excelled at the other way.

I was trying to DO more to feel better, but that just left me feeling more depleted and frantic. The more I DID, the stronger my cravings for sugar and caffeine felt.

Now this may not be true for all of you, as I have some overseas folks here, but my American work ethic has something to do with this:

I was raised in a culture where you DO SOMETHING to fix something:

  1. Chunk down the problems
  2. Look for the weak link
  3. Study the systems
  4. Integrate a step-by-step plan you can work through
  5. Learn a new skill that helps you fix the “bad” way you were before…

It works for a lot of things in life, but not ease.

Not real nourishing health. 

Here’s the catch: vitality is inefficient.

It loves to drink up time and resources. It flourishes in flow.

In other words – working on it doesn’t work. 

 

It’s another paradox: working less to feel better.

Relax more to feel more alive.

Freedom and commitment to a health plan.

 

The old way of “powering through” to heal your body and life ends up dissecting the body and symptoms into parts instead of being seen as a beautiful whole:

 

  • Headaches at work are handled with Advil instead of looking at stress and diet.
  • Loss of juicy libido is blamed on age rather than looking at relationship and hormones
  • Sleep troubles are handled with Ambien instead of looking at work-life balance
  • Weight loss is fought with reduced calories and more exercise instead of looking at food intolerance and stress

 

We try to DO more instead of relax into awareness and ease.

In my early years as a mama, as I was going through my separation and divorce, I tried to do more to feel better:

 

  • Working late and rising early to get more work done
  • Reintroducing caffeine to my life to stay focused
  • Relying more on networking functions as my social life than connecting with old friends

 

And my body finally got through to me and told me that I was over-doing and over stressed. It got to the point where I saw my friends a few times a month and was working from 5:30am to 9:30pm every night.

 

I’ve learned that habits the nourish my life and energy keep me in the shape I desire to be in. Dieting never gave me the results I was looking for, but making daily, conscious efforts to feel well DID. 

I’m clear: to be a good mom, you have to mother yourself first.  Joy and vitality are immeasurable qualities of aliveness.

 

And to master your cravings, you need to fill your energy and nourishment tank with a lot of fuel. Otherwise your body will cry out for the comfort foods that answer the pain in the moment, but lead to a life long battle with weight and exhaustion.

 

With a little help from my partner who is a bit older and wiser in the area of ease, as well as my own coaches and friends, I’ve instituted a radical schedule of self-care in order to be the mom, woman, and health coach I want to be:

 

  • I run my own business, so I have to set my own hours: my work hour boundaries are now set in stone.
  • Getting less than 7 hours of sleep is not allowed, honey. 8+ please.
  • My juices really get going when I have creative down time with books, pens, and being in nature: this is now scheduled
  • No cell phones allowed into the bedroom, nor at meal times.
  • Fun in the sun (or rain) is mandatory: walks and bike rides at least 3 times a week 
  • Connecting with friends and my partner is not throw away time – it is a vitally important ingredient in self-care and in building my business
  • Eating simple, healthy food is non-negotiable.

 

Here’s your home-play assignment, should you choose to accept:

(Home-play sounds more fun than homework, right?)

Take a day off.

Really.

An entire day for you.

No schedule, no plans, NO INTERNET.

Take your kid to camp or a friend’s house, say goodbye at the door to your partner, or just turn the ringer off your phone.

Use as sick day as a well-day. 

Then do whatever you need to feel well, replenish your body-mind, and get into ease:

 

  • Hop back into bed for another hour or two of sleep
  • Read a saucy tale in your skivvies
  • Lounge in the park listening to music or your favorite podcast (I’m in love with Being Here with Ariel & Shya Kane, Marc Maron’s WTF and Dan Savage)
  • Put on your favorite sun dress or shorts and go for a bike ride to your favorite cafe: read a magazine
  • Cook a new recipe — or just eat easy salads all day — or have a piece of amazing chocolate by the river
  • Feel no guilt, know that your health and well-being depend on giving yourself what you truly desire: ease & play

Self-care means you’re caring for yourself and your needs as you would a trusted, loved friend or pet. Would you deny your friend a shoulder to cry on, or your pet the food and rest it needs to feel well? How can you give yourself the energy, love and spirit-filling nourishment you need to build a base of real health? 

 

Self care isn’t selfish, it’s nourishment and deserved. 

 

To help you take loving self-care action, and make it a truly transformative habit, I’ve created a Mama Love Self-Care Menu with a healthy list of fun options to help you schedule in your deeply juicy “down time.”

I hope you love the menu! And I hope you have a beautiful, relaxing Mother’s Day.

What one thing will you do TODAY for YOU?

balance your hormones in 3 easy steps

3 Ways We’re Hurting Our Hormones + How To Fix It

Balance. If you’re like me, you strive for it daily.
balance your hormones in 3 easy steps
If you were one of those carpenter levels, with the yellow liquid and floating bubble dancing between two lines, would you be straight and balanced or off-kilter and unsteady?

What I mean is, how are your hormones doing lately? 

I get questions about hormone health all the time, so I wanted to put together a quick resource to help you at home right away.
Made by our bodies and used in the right amounts, natural hormones tell our cells and tissues to act in specific ways, and guide our moods and behaviors.

 

In the right way, our hormones turn us on, keep the metabolic fires burning, and keep us in good humor.

 

In the wrong amounts, either produced naturally in uneven flashes by our glands, consumed in foods or through toxic exposure, disregulated hormones lead to fits of depression, bursts of anger and impatience, exhaustion, impaired sleep, weight irregularities, faulty menstrual cycles, and gut dis-eases.

 

Steady your hormones, fix your health, love your life.

It’s often as simple as that.

 

Yet today we are swimming in a soup of synthetic hormones that come into our bodies from air, land, sea, and late, setting our bodies and brains off balance.

 

In order to help you fix those powerful chemical messengers to begin feeling lighter, happier, better, I’ve put together a quick list of 3 simple ways you can take control of your hormonal fate:

 

1. Can do? Can DON’T! Avoid BPA-lined cans

 

Balance your hormones naturally: buy only BPA free cans!

I love timesaving tips as much as any home chef, but canned foods are hiding a dirty time-release bomb, BPA.

Foods in BPA lined cans absorb the chemical into beans, fruits and vegetables. BPA is a chemical used in plastics that mimics estrogen, and has been lined to breast and other cancers, reproductive problems, obesity, early puberty and heart disease.

 

Hormone Fixes: Avoid BPA by buying frozen veggies and fruits instead of canned. Some companies, like Eden Organics,  offer BPA-free cans that are safe to purchase, and put it on the label. Buy tomatoes and tomato sauces in glass jars instead of cans.  Avoid foods that come in plastic containers with #7 recycling label, and avoid handling grocery receipts with bare hands, as thermal paper is often coated with BPA.

 

2. Dental Damn – Danger On Your Toothbrush

 

We’ve been told to brush and floss 2-3 times a day, but no one said anything about the dangers of chronic exposure to the fluoride that’s supposed to keep our pearlies white.

According to a 2006 report by the National Research Council of the National Academies, fluoride is an endocrine disruptor, meaning that it upsets the glands that secrete hormones.

Even tiny amounts of fluoride can upset can affect your thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, pancreas and pituitary glands. Toothpaste and fluoridated water are the two most common sources, but since fluoride stays in the water cycle, crops absorb it through watering.

The average American adults consumes 3-6mg of fluoride a day, which can be twice the amount that can cause thyroid disfunction. The average American child consumes 1.5 mg, which is nearly twice the amount that can cause thyroid problems.

 

Hormonal Fixes:

Since chronic exposure can have big, long-term effects on the intellectual, social, sexual and physical development of both adults and children, it’s a good time to switch to non-fluoride toothpaste! Brands like Tom’s of Maine offer fluoride-free versions. If you live in a county, city or town that fluoridates your water, you may want to invest in a fluoride filter for your drinking water.

 

3. Every Thyroid Out Of The Pool! Chlorine & Thyroid 

 

Since fluoride and chlorine are both chemically related to iodine and compete with how the body absorbs it, ingesting either can block iodine receptors in the thyroid gland.

We drink or shower in chlorinated water almost every day. Those small exposures can lead to big hormone problems over time.

 

Protect your thyroid with a good fluoride filter - I use this one!

Protect your thyroid with a good fluoride filter – I use this one!

 

Hormonal Fix: Avoid swimming in chlorinated pools, especially enclosed and indoors, as the chlorine vapors will be inhaled into your lungs as well. Get a chlorine filter for both your shower and your water faucets to avoid both physical contact and consuming the chemical.

 

 

These simple fixes will help your body balance your hormones effortlessly, and get you the happy mood, easy weight loss and long-term health you crave.

Miracles making eating easier now: My interview with Gabrielle Bernstein

I often get asked questions about staying in the moment, and how to shift old habits of thought, especially when it comes to food.

It’s such a pleasure to share with you a new book that has really inspired me.

Below is my interview with my friend and New York Times Best Seller, Gabrielle Bernstein, author of Miracles Now:

Gabby, tell us about your new book, Miracles Now.

 

I love this book and I’m so psyched to share it with you. Miracles Now helps readers lessen stress and find peace—FAST! I handpicked 108 techniques to combat our most common problems—from addiction and anxiety to burnout and resentment. The exercises are inspired by some of my greatest spiritual teachings. Throughout the book, I offer up spirit-based principles, meditations and practical tools to help readers bust through blocks to live with more ease. I break down each technique Spirit Junkie style—with meditations, assessment questions and step-by-step guidance—while incorporating lessons from the metaphysical text A Course in Miracles and Kundalini yoga. This book is meant for the busy, stressed person who simply wants to feel better fast.

 

How can meditation help with food cravings and obsessive compulsive eating habits?

 

To quote my doctor and friend, Dr. Frank Lipman, “Sugar is like crack.” I couldn’t agree more. Sugar is a drug that keeps us wanting more to the point of addiction. When we’re addicted there is an imbalance in the pineal gland (also called the the third eye). The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. When the pineal gland is imbalanced, bad habits turn into addictions. The imbalance in the pineal gland affects the pituitary gland, which regulates the rest of the glandular system. When the pituitary gland is affected the entire body and mind go out of balance.

 

A major tool in my process of healing my addiction to sugar has been the Kundalini meditation for healing addiction. Follow this video for guidance:

 

 

Lesson 39 is called “Just show up” – how does that work for someone who is trying to stick with an eating plan?
I think it’s important to keep it in the day. Each day make the decision to just show up and stay on path with your plan. One day at a time you will create new patterns and move into a new way of being. Showing up is 90% of the work.

 

How is Miracles Now different from all of your other books?

 

Each of my books has a unique format but a shared intention, which is to offer readers tools for releasing all the blocks to their true happiness and peace. Miracles Now shares that core intention through 108 short exercises that can be done anywhere, any time. This book is less self-reflective and more action oriented. I want it to put people into practice immediately so they can experience Miracles Now!

 

What made you write this book.

 

I write my books based on what I feel my readers need. I realized that so many people have packed schedules and lots to do, but they want to carve out a little time each day to create positive change and find peace in ways that are easy to follow and put into practice. In addition, I continuously witnessed my audience members and social media followers ask me for more practical tools to release their stress and boost their moods. People want to get to work and they want to feel better fast. This book is my response to that call.

 

The higher purpose of this book is to contribute to a greater global change. I believe that when more and more people begin to feel better, the positive collective energy supports the energy of the world. I believe that it is our collective energy that can save the world. This is the higher purpose for Miracles Now. I reinforce the book’s mission in its introduction, excerpted below:

 

{Excerpt from the introduction}

 

Right now we’re in a special and powerful position, because the world is having a spiritual awakening. When energy speeds up there is no space for playing small, and nothing can remain hidden. At some point all lies are brought to the surface and truth comes forth no matter how hard we try to hide it. Cynics are filling the yoga studios and the spiritual choir is growing larger. There is a massive call for more lightworkers, and now is our time to rise up and bring more positivity to the world. When the masses begin to vibrate with an energy of love, the world will no longer be a container for war, violence and lies.

 

 

There are great Kundalini meditations throughout the book. Can you tell us more about them?

 

For this book I chose twelve of the most powerful Kundalini meditations for shifting your mood, changing your energy and reducing stress. I was mindful to include meditations that are easy for newcomers as I expect many of my readers may be new to meditation. A great meditation for beginners is what I’ve nicknamed Peace Is in Your Pulse. It improves your concentration and brings calm to even the most scattered mind.

 

Sit in Easy Pose (comfortably cross-legged on the floor) with a slight neck lock, which means your chin slightly down and your neck is straight.

 

Lightly close your eyes and focus on the space between your eyebrows (the third-eye point).

 

The mantra is Sat Nam (which means “truth identified”).

 

The hand position (mudra) is simple. Place the four fingers of your right hand on your left wrist and feel your pulse. The fingers are in a straight line, lightly pressed on the wrist so you can feel your pulse in each fingertip.

 

On each beat of your pulse, mentally hear the sound of Sat Nam.

 

This meditation is suggested for 11 minutes, but you can experience great benefits in just one minute. Practice it daily to develop your intuition and calm your mind.

 

 

Who is this book for?

 

This book is for anyone who wants to create positive change in their life. If you’re stressed out, anxious, fearful, stuck or simply ready to play bigger in your life, this book is for you.

 

If you have the slightest willingness to feel better, this book is for you.

 

It doesn’t matter where you are on your spiritual path. You can be a dedicated yogi with a 20-year practice, a hardcore cynic who thinks this stuff is woo-woo, or anywhere in between: No matter what, you’ll benefit a lot from these teachings. What’s most exciting about the book is that you can simply use one of the exercises on a daily basis and it WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I say that with conviction.

 

How can readers use the book?

 

This book is fun and interactive. You can read it from start to finish and soak up the concepts, but there are other ways to approach it. I feel that book can also act like a tarot deck. You can set an intention for yourself and then open the book to any page. Mark my words: You will ALWAYS get the guidance you need most in that moment.

 

I think the best way to use this book is to surrender to the exercises. Let your intuition guide you through each page. When you land on exercise that excites you, DO IT. Practice it for 40 days and master it. Then share it! These tools are meant to be shared. The last lesson in the book is that you are the guru. Miracles Now  empowers you with life-changing tools that you can share with the world. When these tools become yours, they are yours to share.

 

 

What are the spiritual teachings that influenced the lessons in the book?

 

As a student and teacher of  A Course in Miracles and Kundalini yoga and meditation, it has become my mission to translate these life-changing spiritual truths for all seekers. A Course in Miracles is a metaphysical self-taught curriculum based on the principle that when we choose love over fear we experience miraculous change. The Course emphasizes the practice of turning our fears over to the care of our inner guide and places strong emphasis on forgiveness. The Course teaches us that through the experience of forgiveness we will know true peace.

 

Kundalini is the yoga of awareness, which focuses on enhancing one’s intuition and strengthening the energy field. Kundalini aims to draw forth the creative potential of an individual to have strong values, be truthful and focus on compassion and consciousness.

 

It is a great honor to share the principles of both A Course in Miracles and Kundalini throughout this book. These tools helps the reader release everything that blocks their connection to their inner power. When you practice these techniques, fear melts away, inspiration springs up, and a sense of peace sets in. Most importantly, you build a relationship to the power within you — and this power connection is essential. The power I speak of is your connection to love. The more we tune into our own frequency of love, the more love will spread. When love is the trend there is no room for violence and war. Trust me when I say: Your practice is crucial in the awakening of the world. Each person’s energy matters.

 

 

In the book you use social media in a really cool way. Can you share about this?

 

I love this part! I boiled down each lesson into a 140-character description — or Miracle Message — which can be tweeted, pinned on Pinterest, posted on Facebook, or shared on Instagram. Each Miracle Message ends with the hashtag #MiraclesNow so readers can connect, share miracles and spread inspiration. And e-book readers can share right from their devices.

 

Share with us your journey and how it led to where you are now

 

In my early twenties I ran a nightlife PR firm in NYC. On the outside everything looked great, but on the inside I was a mess. I was seeking happiness, security and self-worth outside of myself. I regularly stayed up till 5 or 6 a.m. partying, and thanks to cocaine I weighed about 98 pounds. My friends had tried an intervention, but it didn’t work. Then, one night, I finally let it go. I wrote in my journal, “I need help. God, Universe, whoever is out there … I surrender.” The next morning, October 2, 2005, I woke up to a loud inner voice that said, “Get clean and you’ll have everything you want.” I knew I had no other choice than to listen.

 

I am happy it happened the way it did. I found God in my own way. I got clean. My conscious surrender was when I asked for help in my journal. I received an answer right away, and I have been sober since that day. I was desperately looking for happiness, and I was seeking everything good—peace and happiness—outside of myself.

 

For the past eight years I’ve been on a powerful journey inward, expanding my intuition and shifting my perceptions of the world. Through my own personal journey I have been guided to teach others to do the same.

#FixFood: It’s Time to Fix the Toxic Food Culture We Live In

Here’s the deal –

If we can’t all access healthy, clean food, then all of this talk about fixing food isn’t going to help as many people as it could.

As part 3 of our #FixFood mission, we have to increase the awareness and access that people have.

 

For starters, people who need good nutrition the most (like the working poor) don’t currently have access to it.

We can quickly help people learn how to grow a little bit of their own food – which connects them to themselves, and helps them feel empowered.

When people have access to really high quality food, it helps them feel better, do more, earn more, lift their family out of poverty, get off of diabetes meds, and stop using the Emergency Room as their form of primary care.

 

We can make food labels better.

There’s a huge growing movement in the U.S. that the rest of the world is begging us to lead the charge on: to label genetically modified foods.

So many people want laws in this area, but they don’t know what to DO about it.

 

Now, let’s talk about our kids.

Our kids are getting sicker and sicker, younger and younger, with diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. And it has a lot to do with how kids are fed in this country.

We live in a hyper advertising and food marketing culture. Kids are bombarded with messages about unhealthy food all day long.

It’s up to us – the adults and parents – to become aware of it and talk to our kids about it, so the messaging they get is balanced (or maybe even has more good messaging than junk food messaging).

Another aspect is the lunch programs in our schools. We can talk to our kids about healthy foods all we like, but if they’re fed junk at school, what happens to the kids whose parents aren’t talking to them about healthy foods? What about the families who rely on the lunch programs to keep their children fed?

We can help fix that. But we have get the education into the schools. And we have to empower the kids.

This is the part of the Super Size Me 10 Year Anniversary series that has me the most excited.

I’m bringing in people who are on the ground, fixing the food culture we live in, so they can talk about how YOU can help make a difference.

And, as a very special guest, we’re highlighting Dr. Oz’s Healthcorps – an amazing program that goes into schools and teaches kids about cooking and nutrition (something that’s sorely lacking schools nowadays).

We are designating Dr. Oz’s Healthcorps as our charity of choice for the entire telesummit. 75% of the profits will be donated to them in order to help this growing movement to help our KIDS fix food.

#FixFood: Turn that Unhealthy Relationship Around

We’re all intelligent, functioning human beings here.

We all know things we could be doing differently to eat better.

But we still have these sabotaging food habits and emotional eating issues where food is like our substitution for intimacy. Food helps us feel calm. It’s one of our favorite soothers.

It’s just that most of us have a relationship with our food that gives the phrase “unhealthy relationship” a totally new meaning.

But when you FIX your relationship with food, it becomes an easy, delicious way to nourish yourself, rather than being a life raft that you cling you to every day just to get through.

You feel lighter.

You like yourself better.

You feel stronger, more confident, more at ease.

You’re more peaceful in your life.

And happier. So much happier.

… Basically, all the good stuff!

Which is why fixing your relationship with food is one of the main topics in my #FixFood mission.

At the Super Size Me 10 Year Anniversary series (March 10 – 14), I’m going to interview 30+ of the hottest experts in health and nutrition.

And we’re going to get into your relationship with food!

I have so many knowledgeable and caring experts lined up: bestselling authors, neuroscientists, food psychologists, and more.

Here’s just a glimpse of what we have lined up for you. . .

Pedram Shojai will tell you how to fix your relationship with food, one bite at a time.

Neuroscientist and author Darya Rose will share new discoveries in neuroscience about how cravings are created – and she’ll give you 3 basic rules to eat for sane weight loss. (Sounds good to me!)

Trudy Scott will talk about how balancing your brain chemistry with real foods can heal emotional eating, and Robb Wolf will help you break free from dietary dogma so you can discover your perfect food style.

They are all ready to help you understand and unwire your emotional relationships with food – so I hope you’ll join us for this virtual event. (Grab your free ticket here.)

And don’t be shy! Follow me on Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest to get all of the #FixFood updates – and jump into the conversation!
