Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy located just in front of the spine and positioned from the tailbone to the crown of the head. The chakras are a map of your inner world – your relationship with yourself and how you experience energy. Below is a chart of the seven main Chakras and their properties.

skin beauty salad

This skin beauty salad is from the fine folks at Food Matters, slightly modified. I have removed the red onion and the suggestion of adding dill to the dressing. The arugula is high in sulfur, which cleanses the liver and skin. The radishes and cucumber are high in silica, which strengthens and moisturizes hair, skin and nails.  It

hummus

Hummus is one of those great multifaceted options. A great dip with chips or veggie sticks. A healthy spread on a sandwich. A plant-based protein option in a bountiful buddha bowl. The possibilities are endless – as are the ingredients! Here is a basic hummus recipe to which you can add any number of spices

sriracha chicken

I love any recipe involving sriracha and chicken and this one is a current yozenity favorite. You can’t be a one-pot meal that is easy, healthy, and delicious. Because the sriracha is blended in with the liquid, it doesn’t have the full breadth of heat here so there’s no need to be too wary of

green eggs

On a whim today I made a breakfast experiment: green eggs!! I wanted something warm on this cold, snowy December morning so instead of a smoothie I opted for eggs. Now, I’ve been on a smoothie kick for a little while now and it has been really great. ESPECIALLY since I began incorporating superfood greens

citrus coconut refresher mocktail

This is one of my favorite drinks. It’s hydrating, tasty, and bubbly. I’m calling it a “refresher” and a “mocktail” because it feels like a bit of both! This is great if you need to rehydrate and water just isn’t floating your boat. Also a great transition if you are weaning yourself off of soda

Sickie Blaster Chicken Noodle Soup

The key to this chicken noodle soup recipe lies in the homemade chicken stock that simmers the healing properties out of the bone-in chicken thighs for hours. This process creates a concentrated soup base that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Fresh garlic added to this soup contains Allicine, an antibacterial anti-oxidant. Celery is full
