Foods that Fuel Mastery

Foods that Fuel Mastery

As we enter this year of self mastery, we’ll need fuel to sustain the high level of energy that mastery requires.  Far beyond the quick and temporary boosts from sugary coffee and energy drinks, are plants that are vibing high with prana that provide high amounts of nutrients like B12, chlorophyll and fiber.  Eating more vegetables and fruits is a start.  It’s also key to cut them fresh upon use.  Cutting fruits and vegetables causes a loss of prana.

What not to eat is just as important as what to eat to fuel energy.  Foods that are old, wilted, or heavily processed have a reduced amount of energy or prana.  Heavily processed foods are often not recognized by the body, and ingestion of these foods actually can result in fatigue as the body is thrown off trying to figure out what to do with this foreign object!  Poor food combinations also slow down the digestive process.  So let’s get energized.

7 Energizers

  1. Water – hydration is key to high energy.  Balanced water detoxes the system, while allowing better absorption by the cells to boost energy transfer.
  2. Herbs – fresh herbs provide high amounts of energy.  Try yerba mate, guarana, maca root, beet root, Chinese ginseng.
  3. Nuts – almonds, cashews, or walnuts soaked or cooked with grains
  4. Spices – aid the digestion of food and energize.  Curry, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, and cloves are examples.  Check to see what works best for your body type.
  5. Whole Grains-  high in protein, quinoa, barley and amaranth are powerful energizers.
  6. Fruits and vegetables- organic, local and in season, are always best. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a storehouse of energy, especially those that are colorful (think  brilliant red foods, and the darker the green the better).  Among those that packed the highest power are: goji berries, dates, watermelon, stone fruits, apples, spinach, asparagus,
  7. Seeds -  Seeds are a metaphor for life and renewal for a good reason.  Pumpkin, chia, sesame and sunflower seeds are great for obtaining protein, fiber, magnesium and zinc!

Let’s not let running out of fuel hold back our magnificence in 2018!  Forks up for your brilliance!
