Gift to Yourself and your Health

So, I just bought a new IPhone 6s, and I LOVE it! Yeah, weird to actually say that, but it's true. (sigh of acceptance :) )
I DO NOT like the excessive amount of radiation that comes from the screen however. I can feel it when I am on social media too much, and emailing or texting for client confirmations - blech, it just feels funky to me. And not a good funk, like George Clinton.

So, I did some research and found this great RF safe case that actually limits, maybe even blocks the amount of radiation it gives off as I use it! It is awesome! AND I AM NOT GETTING PAID TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT. That's how much I believe in the product. It's something I feel it's important to share.

First, the case comes in a variety of colors and is super easy to put on and take off and it has an easy magnetic closure to seal it. You can keep it covered at all times, even if you decide to talk on the phone without earbuds. It's interesting to note that I have talked on the phone with the cover closed and have experienced no electromagnetic sensations by my ear, and the phone did not become "hot to touch" as others have in the past... (I do energy work, so I am a bit sensitive to electromagnetic energy...)

This is also a great feature if you use your phone to listen to music or as an alarm clock. Keeping a cover on it not only reduces the radiation coming from it, but also blocks out the almost indiscernible blue light that emanates from all phones; a light that has been proven to affect your circadian rhythms, even known to cause insomnia.

Here's a huge bonus feature!!!! There's a small slot to put your drivers license and some cash into if you want to make a quick trip to the local coffee shop.

You can use the camera with the cover open, but it will flop in the front a bit.

Another awesome feature: the back cover is stiff enough to use as a stand to prop your phone up horizontally. Nice to "facetime"/video call with your family and friends :) Just be sure to keep the magnetic flap down. Keep in mind if you have the front over open, the radiation is not blocked.

I have found that I am less inclined to keep looking at my phone throughout the day to check texts, emails and my obsession - the weather! So that's really nice.

If you are interested in more information check out the website -  https://www.rfsafe.com/
They have a video (on the research page) and packages for sale, if you'd like more than the case. There are also cases available for Samsung Galaxys!
You can tell them I sent you, but they won't know me.

Be safe and healthy this holiday season! Big Love, Lisa Kai

Let's Beat the Heat together!

So, it is going to be hot again this week in Chicago. I don't know about you, but when it's hot, cooking, and even the thought of putting together a salad for myself, can be unappealing.
Yes, some laziness I take full responsibility for, but also there is the desire for savory and cool and a little sweet mixed into one. This is when a "meal" in a jar becomes an alchemical challenge for me.

Veggies, fruit, savory, sweet, flavorful, thick, cool... playing with variables and throwing them into a blender to see what happens!
This post was inspired by a friend who made a smoothie and wasn't satisfied.

I love smoothies. I HAVE to experiment and see what combinations I can come up with using whatever is in my fridge or pantry. Really, it's almost an obsession of mine.

So, when a friend of mine told me of her unsatisfying smoothie, it provoked this thought process...
What ingredients do I have around the fridge and pantry/cabinets to add to a smoothie to make it more interesting. Looking in those places, here's the list I came up with.

To begin, you need a "base" liquid:
          yogurt / kefir (or dairy of your choice)
          nut milk of your choice
          coconut water (plain, or frozen into little ice cubes to add the chill and some hydration)
And - some veggies of your choice (carrots, spinach, kale, and cucumber seem to work well)

Then...

These are what I like to add for some creaminess (or, as Mrs. Felix, my grade school teacher liked to call it, some pithiness!) dates, frozen bananas, raw cashew, and an avocado.

dates

raw cashews

 

Also to add thickness, and some healthy fats, there are avocado, almond butter, and raw coconut oil.

 

For a deeper, more layered, flavor, adding some flavored extract (like vanilla, almond, or chocolate), goji berries, and a sour fruit such as lemons and limes seems to add a bit of a punch to it. Even a dash of apple cider vinegar can add a layer of flavor you never thought of. Caution - not too much vinegar here - you still want it to be palatable.

 

As for sweet:
Tropical fruits such as mangoes, papaya, cherries, pineapple and oranges are great. If you choose mango, be sure to use a good tangy base - like a yogurt or even kefir is great! (to disarm some of its sweetness.)

 

Last, but not least - Savory: lets go for herbs like basil, lemongrass (if you can't find fresh, they carry this in a jar with Thai foods), anise, cinnamon, summer savory, turmeric, ginger, mint, and cardamom. A little goes a long way with fresh, and especially dried herbs. I suggest minimal, and adding in more for your taste buds as you try your concoction.

Now it's time to play and see what combos we can come with!

It helps to think like a bartender.

Maybe your going for a "tiki" like drink - try coconut water, a handful of cashews, handful of spinach, a dash of apple cider vinegar, bananas, 2 dates, some lemongrass, a few mint leaves, and some pineapple. Voila! Yummy!

Stay cool wherever you are, and enjoy life to the fullest you can possibly imagine...
Blessings, Lisa Kai
