From the Publisher
We all need different things to feel great.
This book will give you the tools you need to live your best life and to fully embrace it—whatever your age!
with Roasted Red Pepper, Basil, and Goat Cheese
Still considered by many to be the perfect food, eggs are loaded with protein, vitamins A and B, and biotin. They’re also anti-inflammatory superheroes, which we need to look and feel our best! This recipe is a family fave because you can make a batch or two, eat a few right then and there, and then pop the rest in the refrigerator. When you’re running out the door in the morning or think you don’t have time for breakfast, you can heat one of these up in 30 seconds and give your morning a protein-packed boost.
PREPARATION TIME 15 minutes COOKING TIME 20 minutes MAKES 12 mini-quiches
Preheat the oven to 350°F [180°C]. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin generously with cooking spray. In a small skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a small plate to cool. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Add the cooled onion, red pepper, goat cheese, and basil, and season with salt and pepper.
Divide evenly among the muffin cups. Bake until the eggs have puffed up, are set, and are beginning to brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately, or allow to cool on a wire rack, then refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.
Ingredients 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1⁄2 yellow onion, finely diced 10 eggs 1 roasted red pepper, finely diced 5 oz [140 g] goat cheese, crumbled 1⁄4 cup [10 g] chopped fresh basil Kosher salt Freshly ground pepper
MASSAGE THERAPY for SELF‑CARE
Having regular massages can seem like a luxury rather than a necessity. But massage is finally hitting the mainstream as a healing practice. Many employers allow you to pay for massage therapy out of your flexible spending account, much like acupuncture and other important alternative therapies. Besides being incredibly relaxing and mood-enhancing, massage therapy has been proven in studies to reduce stress, pain, and muscle tension. It has also become a useful tool to help relieve anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, joint pain, insomnia, headaches, and many sports-related injuries. There are many different types of massage, so you’ll want to try a few and see what feels best for you. Many massage therapists are trained in more than one type of practice, so if you describe what you’re looking to get out of the massage (for example, pain relief, relaxation, or muscle tension relief), they will often make a suggestion.
The HEALING PROPERTIES of YOGA
Bring your shoulders over your wrists, keeping your body straight and engaging your thighs and core. Reach your heels backward as you extend your head and neck forward and lengthen your spine into Plank Pose.
Modified Low Push-Up
Exhale, drop your knees to the mat, and bend your elbows as you keep your body straight. Lower your chest with control as you come onto your belly in a Modified Low Push-Up.
Gaze forward or upward as you relax your shoulders down away from your ears and deepen your breath, massaging your low belly into the mat. This is Cobra pose.
Exhale and push your hips back into Child’s Pose.
TIME in NATURE
In March of 2017, TechCrunch reported that adults are spending an average of five hours a day on mobile apps. That doesn’t even include time watching regular television. And Common Sense Media reported that teenagers are now spending an average of nine hours a day consuming media. The numbers are staggering, and I can’t help but recognize the generational shift from my summer days as a kid swimming all day and riding my bike around the neighborhood at night to my sons begging to have their friends over or to hang out so they can play the hottest new video game. Connecting with nature brings us real happiness. A study published in the journal Scientific Reports shows that the sounds of nature—anything from leaves rustling in the wind to water splashing on river rocks—can bring us to a relaxed state. What’s the scientific explanation for the positive effects on our psyche? The sounds physically alter the connections in our brains, reducing our body’s fight-or-flight instinct.
