Coconut Oil is G

Hello Loves,
If you didn't know already know Coconut oil can be used for almost everything! It is your lotion, makeup remover, deodorant and, oil pulling. Yes it is the holy grail of oil! I have been using coconut oil more and more and, I absolutely love it!

I have just started oil pulling and, I would like to update you all on my teeth and how they are doing every two months. It does take getting used to and, you may not be able to swish the oil in your mouth for the full 20 minutes. It was very interesting when I first used it and swished it in my mouth. I distracted myself by doing work or watch a YouTube video. When it hit my mouth I did want to spit it out but, after a few times I have no problem. If you want it to taste different you can use a mint essential oil but, I just use the coconut oil. I actually had a mouth sore that was gone within a couple of days after using the oil.

Note: If you have coconut allergies do not use. Opt for sesame oil

Benefits:
Gets rid of toxins and helps your teeth from decaying &gum disease "Yes Please"
Reduce bad breath

How To Use:
Do not eat before and only oil pull first thing in the morning
Heat oil on low take it off the stove top when it melts
When I get off the stovetop it usually cool but, if it is to hot do not put it in your mouth it will burn
Use a tablespoon and pop the oil into your mouth
Gently swoosh in your mouth for 20 minutes make sure you set a timer
When the time is up spit into the garbage *do not spit it into the sink it will clog it*
Then you can brush your teeth or have breakfast
You have successfully completed your first oil pull!

 Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie

Does Something Have To Suffer

Hello Loves,
Today I was posting my my facebok group " The Entrepreneur Life" and, I wrote that I was filming and editing for YouTube, revamping Poshmark closet, and excited for our first large book sale of the season this weekend. I noticed that I left out the blog and, how it was doing. With all this our dog being sick, and helping grandma my time has been semi limited lately. Yesterday I had my schedule planned out for filming etc. but, I had to go to the doctor with my grandma which meant I didn't get back until close to 5 p.m. Hmmm... a little hard to maintain a schedule when it gets interrupted. Ironically today, I filmed a bit of a video for My Intent series going on my channel in April. the ironic part was that it was how I keep myself motivated throughout the day to create my intent. Its funny because yesterday what I intended to do couldn't get done. It lead me to the questions "does something have to suffer?" or "can we do it all." It is an extremely loaded question that is hard to answer. On one hand if you expect to get ten things accomplished during the day and you only get half done does that mean that the rest have suffered because something got in your way? Well, that may be the case and, I know it is a bit true for me but, I intend to grow my businesses so, they have become a great priority. What trumps my business is family and when they need help I drop anything to help them. Does the business aspect suffer, I would say a bit but, with technology it helps us to keep on track. Going back to facebook I realized that I have been neglecting my blog a bit. I intend to write many post but, there are only so many hours in the day. And, our internet has been crazy! We are getting it looked at tomorrow and, hopefully they will fix it once and for all. My intention is to put a good amount of energy and, thought into the blog to create posts for you all. I want to get back into fashion posts and, environmental posts that are fashion related. As a fashion merchandising graduate I want to strive to help the industry become vegan, ethical, and environmentally friendly. Unfortunately we are killing our home "Earth," and I'd like to create awareness. So, my answer is we can do it all maybe just not all at once.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie

Food Combining Whoops

Hello Loves,

Let me start out by saying I should know better.. It all started today when I only brought three bananas to my grandmas and, I didn't realize I was staying until 2p.m. After I had a food headache at about 1p.m. I gave in and had two small bowls of cheerios with rice milk. Then, a little after two I had some left over Chinese food (vegan style, take out). Later, I got home and, had a Marry Me (vegan ice cream bar). Of course, because I was actually hungry for dinner I decided to have bread with avocado and, tomato; topped that all off with a large carrot. WTF... I know, it is a tragedy of not carbed up thinking. I know that my stomach does not do well with fatty foods and, works so much better if I have fruit before 4p.m. Lesson learned! My stomach doesn't hurt it is just bloated. My lifestyle of clean eating is fantastic, I love it, and I feel energized. But, when I eat like this it does not do my body any favors. I also, have a goal of dropping ten lbs to start out with the healthy way. I also, forgot to mentioned that I walked a lot today but, unfortunately counteracted that with what I ate. When you don't eat enough of the right foods you just grab for what ever is available and, that is the wrong way to approach it. So, I'm hoping to inspire you all to start food combining correctly and, lay off those fatty foods that get you nowhere! I love my mostly plant based foods and, am still learning as a vegan what to do. I need to be prepared and, bring food I love to eat with me! Three bananas in the morning does not do it....
Have an enlightening and, adventurous day,
allie

How To Cope with having a bad day

Hello Loves,
I know some of us get into a bit of a day slump and just tend to get a little emotional. This is a rare occasion for me and usually takes me off guard. But, with having so many happy and great days you are bound to have a few with hiccups. Today was not a bad day and, nothing set me off specifically except the connection of me feeling like a burden on everyone. Lately, I have been feeling as though it is a chore to talk to me and, I'm sure most of us feel like that on occasion. I lead a great life with entrepreneurial pursuits that I absolutely love. So, how do we pull ourselves out of this weird funk that is not brought on by anything specific...
  1. You are feeling that way for a reason so let yourself feel
  2. Now that you have had time to cope with your feelings learn from it
  3. What do you want to do, are there changes you need to make
  4. Do you- You are your own person so, do what you love
  5. Now take yourself away from the funk by reading, watching a movie, or doing something you love to do.
  6. Take a walk and listen to music
  7. Deal with it and move forward
My number 7 is happing right now by writing about it, because that is how I work out things. Do what makes you feel good and, don't waste your day in a funk.

" We are merely humans, our minds wander, our hearts grow, we long to explore, and with so many emotions we are bound to fall into the quickening sand; it is our slow adjustments that bring us back to solid ground."
~ Allison Vota

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Holy Benefits

Hello Loves,
I have recently been doing so much research regarding veganism and benefits from different "Super Foods." This week I am focusing in on Coconut Oil and Spirulina. I am going to do a whole other post on Coconut Oil this week; the benefits, and many many uses. Today, we are going to focus on Spirulina and, what I have learned from reading about it. Just putting this out here now, I am not an expert nor, am I a doctor. I have read a few articles and, have tried Spirulina these benefits have been found in studies.
Benefits Of Spirulina:
  1. High In Many Nutrients:
  • Protein
  • Vitamin B (Thiamin)
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Mangenese
It is known to be the most nutritious food on the Planet. Little Fact is that Spirulina became popular because NASA said it could be grown in space but, had already been used by the Aztecs.

2. Anti-inflammatory & Anti-Aging Properties
  • Protect Against Oxidative ( The combination of a substance with oxygen) damage
3. Can help to Reduce LDL & Triglyceride Levels
  • Lower Risk Of Heart Disease
4. Protects against cholesterol being oxidized
5. Protects against Cancer and Oral Cancer
6. Possible Reduction in Blood Pressure
7. Reduces Allergies
8. Protect against anemia
9. My improve muscle strength and endurance
10. Control Blood Sugar

The article that I pulled this information from I will link below. I thought that it is important for you all to know about all the benefits of Spirulina and, to act on it. I will be conducting a little test starting next Monday where, I will have a glass of water and then, a glass of water with Spirulina. I will continue to do this for two months and see if I show any improvement. After drinking the Spirulina today I felt energized and, overall felt better. For all of you that may not take it because of the taste I personal don't think it tastes like much but, you can always add it to your smoothie. I will not be passing up the opportunity to reap all of the benefits of this amazing "Super Food."
