Supportive in all the right ways to stand tall

Knows you better than anyone

Picks you up when you fall

Always up for a little fun

Tastebuds delight when we answer their call

Skin signals red to get out of the sun

Brain keeps up with all

Healthy is the measure of one

Celebrate that body, y’all

Dedicated to everyone who pays attention to their body care.

Wednesday Special Spotlight Healthy Recipe

C.D. Hersh

Wednesday Special Spotlight

Shines On

Sharon Ledwith

Who shares with us a recipe for healthy
Chipotle Chicken Wrap.

I discovered this healthy recipe from an online diet and exercise program I purchased last year and loved it! It packs a different punch to your taste buds while providing a healthier choice to add to your personal menu. Who said a burrito needed to be unhealthy? This easy recipe provides anti-inflammatory properties from apple cider vinegar, immune boosting benefits from garlic, and healthy, inflammation-cooling fats from olive oil. Instead of heading to your local fast-food Mex-Tex joint, try making your own burrito at home.

Chipotle Chicken Wrap

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Juice from ½ lemon

Pinch of salt and pepper

½ tsp. paprika

4-6 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced

1 cup romaine lettuce or spinach, chopped

1 tbsp…

Easy Lunch, Dinner, or Snack – Food As Ally Meal Idea

www.foodasally.com

You’ve been asking for easy meal ideas that will keep you out of a hot summer kitchen. This is one of my favorites.

Fast Nachos photo by Gina Briganti

Nachos are endlessly versatile and a great way to eat cool sour cream, fresh diced tomatoes, zesty green onions, smooth velvety guacamole, ready-made cheeze (non-dary or dairy) sauce, your choice of tortilla chips, and protein.

Added bonus, it travels well.

Bring these to work or a picnic by separating ingredients in containers. Purchased guacamole singles (pictured – Trader Joe’s Avocado’s Numbers Guacamole to Go) are perfect for one meal and will stay green. The protein of choice, next to the plant-based cheeze sauce, is grilled turkey cutlets. Coconut water is a favorite hydrating drink for hot days. Salsa Verde Corn Tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s give salsa flavor.

FAQ’s

www.foodasally.com

There’s plenty of emphasis on the weekly Reiki Food As Ally Group Support Zoom meetings and the Food As Ally in-person weekly group support meetings in Dallas, which raises the question of whether I still offer Reiki sessions and classes. I offer them as well as workshops on techniques in the Reiki III (ART) Manual.

Thank you to those who asked the questions. I’m glad you know I’m still here for you regarding Reiki, pet Reiki, and Reiki Food As Ally.

Peace and love,

Gratitude Journal Opportunity for Your Food As Ally Step 1

www.foodasally.com

Graphic by Gina Briganti

To know where you are, where you’ve been, and where you intend to go in your relationship with food, a journal is recommended in step 1 of the program.

We have a history with food, personally and collectively. Today I’m asking you to appreciate the good times, the wins that brought you to where you are today.

Not knowing where our relationship with food is going and at the same time intending that it is going to be good is how we can love the mystery. At the same time, you recognize your fears surrounding your future, release them, and gain insight. Remember to be gentle with yourself, to observe, then let go. Don’t put yourself on trial and convict yourself.

Remember to put a date on what you write, collage, or record so you can look back. There’s lots of fun and insight later on.

Listening to Ourselves

www.foodasally.com

Graphic by Gina Briganti

What does your brain want to eat? Your body? How about your emotions? Is your spirit reaching for a particular summer vegetable or fruit?

Listening to ourselves about what we need on every level is essential to living in alignment and is a major focus of the Food As Ally program.

Next meeting is Friday evening and there’s still time to register. Can’t make it Friday? There’s an in-person meeting every Wednesday and a Zoom meeting every Friday.

Take your first or next step by joining our small group meeting.

Sincerely,

Gina
