Hemp Seeds – Amazing Crunchy Goodness

hemp seeds

I’ve been eating hemp seeds for awhile now. They taste great and they provide a blast of nutritional power that far exceeds almost any food available today. I’ve written about the benefits of hemp before, but hemp seeds need their own special shout out, because they are truly one of nature’s powerful foods. Here are 5 reasons that you need to be adding hemp seeds to your healthy diet.

They are a superior source of vegetarian protein. This high protein percentage strengthens the immune system and fends off toxins in the body.

Hemp seeds improve cardio vascular health. They contain the highest source of botanical fatty acids and a perfect balance of omega 3 and omega 6 linolenic acids.

Hemp seeds are the richest known source of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. They contain phytonutrients that ward off disease throughout the body.

Hemp seeds contain all essential amino acids for our body including 9 amino acids that our bodies don’t produce.

Hemp seeds will lower your cholesterol. They produce phytosterols which helps remove fat from your arteries.

Yes, hemp seeds are a member of the cannabis family, but there is no need to be concerned that they will get you high. Hemp seeds contain a very low amount of THC, plus they contain a substance that counteracts THC.

If you’re looking for an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, then hemp seeds are the way to go. Here are some delicious ways to add them to your diet.

-Sprinkle them over salads.

-Add them to scrambled eggs or pancakes for breakfast.

-Put them in your smoothie.

-Throw a handful in your mouth.

This is just one way to take advantage of the power of hemp. I hope you find other ways to use this amazing plant in your healthy life.

No Time To Meditate? Try This!

IMG_0345

When I talk to my clients about the benefits of meditation, the most common response I get is, “I don’t have enough time.” Although I disagree with that premise, I’m going to show you how easy it is to make time for meditation and to reap the benefits immediately.

Bruce’s Quick and Easy Meditation

-Get Comfortable-Sit in a chair with your feet on the ground, sit on the ground, lie down, you can even go for a walk. Whatever makes you comfortable.

-Just Breathe-Keep your eyes open, or close them and just focus on your breath. Notice how your breath enters and leaves your body. Follow it.

-Focus-Continue following your breath. If thoughts creep into your mind(and they will) just acknowledge them and let them go.

-Relax-Move away from your breath and just be present. Remind yourself that there’s nothing more important than now.

-Be Grateful-Think about the great things in your life, think about how great your body feels when you’re in your meditation. Let go of the negative.

Let go and move on with your day!

Gardening Is The Spice Of life

5 Reasons Why You Should Start A Garden.

1. It’s Good For You- Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is good for you and your family.  When they are grown right in your yard, you get the optimal health benefits of fresh food from garden to plate.
2. Gardening Saves Money- A packet of seeds costs less than a dollar and can yield healthy nutritious food throughout the growing season. It saves money on the grocery bill and gas from trips to the store.
3. It Reduces Stress-Gardening is a way to relax and center your mind while getting some fresh air and sunshine. It’s an amazing way to meditate. Also, planting, weeding and watering add physical activity to your day, which adds to stress reduction.
4. Reduces Your Environmental Impact-Your own garden food can be grown organic free of pesticides and herbicides. You will also reduce the use of fossil fuels and pollutin it takes to transport foods from long distances to your community.
5. Build A Sense Of Pride-Watching a seed blossom and then become food on your plate is very gratifying. Growing your own food is such a satisfying thing to do. You thrive with a garden, you’re nourished, and you maintain your health.
Gardening has amazing health benefits, community benefits and benefits for the planet. Thinking about a garden? You can have on any where. “Contact Me” to learn more.

“Bruce is a fantastic health coach!  Not only does he listen intently to what needs to be discussed, but he always has great solutions and ideas to combat my health and exercise issues.  He sends me articles to read and suggests meditation exercises to help me focus on.  I love that he actively engages in yoga and always encourages me to take another class or introduce a superfood to my diet.  I’m happier and healthier as a result of adding his bi-monthly appointments to my calendar. And my business is really seeing added growth because now I have the energy to bring it to the next level!  I highly recommend Kriya Living to anyone who is stuck in a diet and/or exercise rut and needs to re-evaluate your health and fitness goals and dreams.”

-Carolyn Israel-

I have worked with Bruce for his knowledge on juice cleanses and detoxes. His programs are simple and effective. Bruce customizes his programs to fit my health needs and works diligently to make sure I’m meeting my goals. His expertise and professionalism are attributes that I would recommend to anyone that is looking to improve their health.

-Patrick Falencik-

Bruce Anderson is an intelligent, personable, and intuitive coach whom I felt completely at ease with when discussing my health goals during our strategy session last Friday. Bruce helped me pinpoint several areas of concern to work on: eating well during travel, nutrition tips for building bone, and stress management. Perhaps what I most appreciate about Bruce Anderson is the truly holistic nature of his approach. I feel confident that he will help me reach my health goals, and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to be at their very best!

-Jeannie O’Donnell-

I have known Bruce Anderson for many years. When Bruce mentioned he was studying to be a Holistic Health coach, I thought I could use some help. So back in early FebruaryI started meeting Bruce twice a month. Boy am I glad I did it. Bruce has covered many topics about proper nutrition and healthy living. He has educated me on what to eat as well a what not to eat. Most importantly with Bruce’s coaching I have lost 15lbs. with 5 to go. Thanks Brucey!
